Apex Legends Season 3 Update - How to Download the New Patch

This is all you need to know about the Apex Legends Season 3 update, including the download size, and more.

Season 3 of Apex Legends is out right now on all platforms. Once you've downloaded the brand new Apex Legends Season 3 update, you can delve straight into the World's End map, complete with a train, lava, and frost.

Apex Legends Season 3 Update

The update that brings in the new season of Apex Legends is live right now on all platforms. It weighs in at around 7.7GB, on PS4 at least, so you'll want to set aside a bit of time for downloading the update. Once the new update has been applied, you're good to get going with Season 3 of Apex Legends.

Apex Legends New Legend

Wattson was the character to debut in the previous seasonal event, but for Apex Legends Season 3, Crypto has been revealed as the brand new character. You'll be able to unlock Crypto for an unspecified amount of Apex Coins (usually 950), when he launches alongside Season 3 on October 1.

Above, you can see the trailer heralding the arrival of Crypto. Just as Wattson and more recently Wraith were treated to some nice animated trailer, so too has Crypto, who looks to be a hacker of some sort, with a surveillance drone in his service.

Apex Legends Season 3 Battle Pass

With Apex Legends Season 3, there's going to be the standard Battle Pass launching for the new event. Previously, the pricing model for past seasonal events had the base version of the Battle Pass at 950 Apex Coins, and there's no reason to believe this should change with the launch of Apex Legends Season 3.

As always, there'll be 100 brand new reward tiers found within the new Battle Pass. There should be two approaches to these 100 reward tiers: free items spread throughout the tiers for those who haven't purchased the new Battle Pass, and a new item every tier for those who have put down the cash.

Apex Legends Charge Rifle

Well before Apex Legends Season 3 was even announced by Respawn, the Charge Rifle leaked online. In the Titanfall games at least, the Charge Rifle is a heavy weapon, charged up over a few seconds to unleash a power laser beam, that's typically used to punch through a titan's armor.

In Apex Legends, there's little reason to believe the weapon will change much. Could it be classed as a supremely powerful sniper rifle? All we know is that the Charge Rifle will debut in Apex Legends alongside the launch of Season 3 on October 1.

There's a ton to get to grip with in the early goings of Apex Legends. You can check out our main Apex Legends tips page, or there's our Apex Legends weapons page, which details every single gun in the game.
