Respawn Entertainment has released the full patch notes for Apex Legends: Saviors, the latest season of the battle royale game, ahead of tomorrow's launch.
The patch notes detail the addition of Newcastle, the newest legend to join the Apex Games, as well as previously-revealed changes to the Storm Point map. On top of that, there's lots of balance changes, including a buff to Rampart, and a nerf to most LMG weapons.
It's a big patch though, so have a browse of the full patch notes for yourself down below.
Apex Legends: Saviors Patch Notes
NEW LEGEND: NEWCASTLE
PASSIVE: RETRIEVE THE WOUNDED
TACTICAL: MOBILE SHIELD
ULTIMATE: CASTLE WALL
With this being the first map update to Storm Point, our goal was to add new content and improve map features while not subtracting anything. We added a brand-new POI; a washed-up sea creature known as the Downed Beast—which is a unique combat experience for Apex Legends—an organic combat zone, and a refreshing change from man-made architecture. On top of that, we added a brand new PvE feature, IMC Armories, at four strategic locations around the map which can dynamically change the championship outcome. Be wary here, you will encounter waves of Spectres but if you survive you can earn sweet loot tailored to your loadout.
The map rotation for the season for Saviors will be Storm Point, Olympus, and World’s Edge. We’re also removing the longer 2-hour rotation block. We felt that could be too long considering it could span the whole play session for some people.
Apex Legends: Saviors’ upgraded Ranked system adds tier demotions, entry cost adjustments,, and a rework of Ranked Points to promote teamplay. The current Ranked goals revolve around Teamplay for Victory, and Accurate Skill & Better Competition. We are making a large number of changes that focus on these two core pillars, with the outcome that players will focus on playing as a team and playing for the win, and RP will be a more accurate representation of your overall game skill.
