EA says the new legend Rampart is an “expert modder who made his name in underground fighting clubs.” Rampart and the new craft system are probably the biggest additions of season 6: when the new season launches, you can find craft materials around the map to build yourself some better gear.
Also arriving for season 6 is the Volt energy SMG, a new weapon that “packs a punch”, an increased punch pass with over 100 items – including legendary skins – and a new ranked season. So far, Respawn and EA have only given an insight into what comes with season 6, and we will probably get more information as August 1
Coming to the horizon after season 6 is Apex Legends cross-play, which arrives in the autumn, at the same time as the game is launched for Steam and Switch. However, console players are not forced to match with PC players; Developer Jake Smullin has clarified that when cross-play arrives at Apex Legends, console players will only be placed in PC lobbies if there is already a PC player in their squad.
