Apex Legends Season 8, titled Mayhem, will launch on February 2.
It will introduce the game’s 16th Legend, laid-back explosives enthusiast Fuse, who’s featured in the new trailer below.
“Fuse doesn’t lack confidence, but he often lacks a plan,” reads a description of the character on the game’s website. “He’s a blow-up-first ask-questions-later kinda guy.”
Season 8 will also include the 30-30 Repeater lever-action rifle, a new battle pass featuring over 100 items, and a major overhaul of the Kings Canyon map.
Its arrival is timed to coincide with the second anniversary of the free-to-play game’s launch.
Apex Legends Season 7, Ascension, launched in November 2020. It introduced new Legend Horizon and the game’s third major map, Olympus.
Season 7 debuted alongside the Steam version of the game and Apex Legends Champion Edition, which includes all Legends up to Season 7, seven exclusive legendary items, plus 1,000 Apex Coins for $39.99.
Apex Legends game director Chad Grenier has said developer Respawn regularly discusses taking the game in new directions and that it will “probably” expand “beyond battle royale” in the future.
