Players of Apex Legends Mobile are currently grinding through Season 1 which introduced Loba and a swath of new events. But, some are already looking past that, and to Season 2 and if you are one of them, you have come to the right place.

Apex Legends Mobile Season 2 will be called Distortion and is set to introduce the second mobile-exclusive Legend with Rhapsody joining the roster. If you want to learn more, including the release date, leaks, and more, check out our primer below.

Apex Legends Mobile Season 2 - Release Date

Season 1's end date has been confirmed by the developers in a recent tweet, stating that Season 1 will end on Tuesday, July 12.

That means Season 2 and its battle pass will be released on Tuesday, July 12.

After initial leaks suggested Revenant would be the next Legend to come to the game, it turns out that it's a new mobile-exclusive Legend that will be arriving in Season 2. This new Legend is called Rhapsody and players can get a first look at her in the Season 2 trailer.

Rhapsody will be the game's 12th Legend, following the arrival of Loba in Season 1.

Rhapsody is a DJ and she even has her very own electronic companion which leakers have discovered is called Rowdy. Other files and an event linked to Rowdy have also been leaked which will give players the chance of unlocking a series of Rowdy-inspired cosmetics. The event appears to be called Rowdy's Deep Cut and will see players searching for coded graffiti left by Rowdy, and finding Rowdy himself which will unlock new music clips.

Rhapsody's abilities have been released, here they are:

  • Passive: Gifted Ear
    • You pick up and visualize sounds from an extended range
  • Tactical: Hype Anthem
    • Play a powerful track that speeds up nearby squadmates and recharges shields. Taking damage will end the effect.
  • Ultimate Ability: Rowdy’s Rave
    • Rowdy projects a wall of flashing lights that block incoming sight and scans.

It appears Rhapsody is a defensive support with the ability to track enemies as well as heal teammates. It will be interesting to see how her abilities translate to the real world.

Apex legends Mobile Season 2 - New Maps

Two previously unavailable maps are heading to Apex Legends Mobile Season 2. One entirely new team deathmatch map and one altogether more familiar battle royale map.

Because it turns out the leaks were true and Kings Canyon is making its way to Apex Legends Mobile. This map was the very first map in the mainline game and it has remained popular throughout the life of the game. The map is available to play now before the start of Season 2 proper.

The other map is Pythas Block 0 which is directly connected to Rhapsody. As the developers explained:

When [Rhapsody's] mother was fired from Pythas Inc. for discovering company secrets, her family was buried in false debt and forced into the dangerous nightlife district: Neon Dunes. There, Rhapsody honed her art. The unrest around her inspired groundbreaking music with a rebellious heart, capturing the passion of its people.

Set on a corporate campus owned by Pythas Inc, the map is a neon-lit urban city with an arcade, offices, and a lot of color.

Apex Legends Mobile Season 2 - Battle Pass

The Season 2 Battle Pass will be called "Distortion," though there is little other information about what it contains.

However, like previous battle passes, Season 2 will have a free and premium track, with those that purchase the battle pass getting 50 tiers of rewards to unlock.

The Premium Battle Pass will cost 799 Syndicate Gold, while there is also the option of purchasing the Premium Battle Pass Plus which costs 1599 Syndicate Gold and will give you a Season-exclusive Avatar Frame and will unlock the rewards for the first ten levels instantly.

Apex Legends Mobile Season 2 - New Game Modes

Two new game modes are coming in Season 2, Gun Game and Hack.

Gun Game will be familiar to many FPS players, as players rack up kills they get better and better weaponry. To win you must get the most points or three melee kills.

Hack has a touch of search and destroy about it. The team of hackers must hack into one of two satellite terminals and, once they do so, the Satellite will begin frying the defenders. As the defenders, you must stop the hackers from getting access to the satellite. The first to four round wins takes the match.
