Apex Legends Season 6 might have only just launched earlier today, but the dataminers have already been hard at work on the new update. Files have been uncovered that point toward several new features for the game, including a tropical island map.
As usual, it's dataminer Shrugtal that's been on the case. Delving into the Season 6 update file earlier today, the dataminer claims to have uncovered plenty of files pointing to Apex Legends's next seasonal event, even though Season 6 has only just launched today (with new hero Rampart to boot).
Firstly, there's files that reference a new Collection Event called Aftermarket, which will provide players with the opportunity to bag a new Heirloom for Caustic. Speaking of Heirlooms, there'll also allegedly be a new one added in for Bangalore at some point in the future.
Next, there's the name of a "Tropic Island" in the game's files. It could certainly be feasible that Apex Legends plans to add in a new, third map to the rotation next season, after reworking parts of the World's Edge map for the new Season 6.
Finally, it looks like there'll be several new additions to the King's Canyon map at some point, including Gravity Lifts and Silo Doors. King's Canyon is no stranger to map reworks, having introduced Crypto's Map Room late in Season 5.
Right now, Season 6 is live across all platforms for Apex Legends. New hero Rampart comes packed with a turret gun called Sheila and protective barriers that amp up outgoing fire from teammates, and there's the usual 100-tier Battle Pass full with new skins for Bloodhound, Pathfinder, Bangalore, and more.
