Apex Legends, now over three years old, sits in a series of rotating seasons and events, trying to keep up with the playerbase’s thirst for content. Here’s a recap of Apex Legends history and when each season and event began and ended.
As it becomes clear that Apex Legends is a game that’s here to stay, it’s useful to have a record of its history, with EA even saying they expect Apex to be a global franchise for at least a decade.
Each new Season brings a new Legend to the Apex games, as well as a selection of other content such as maps, game modes, weapons, and cosmetic content. Here’s an overview of Apex Legends history and when each season began and ended.
