Apex Legends artwork for the upcoming Legend Rampart

[Update #2]: Apex Legends' Season 6 has now finally arrived alongside Rampart, a new energy SMG, and item crafting!

[Update]: The newest Season 6 preview is all about Rampart and her abilities, and as expected, she's looking like a bit of a controversial addition given her shields and mountable turret.

Season 6 of Apex Legends will be heading over to PC and consoles this August 18th. You can expect to see a brand new energy SMG by the name of Volt, the ability to craft your own gear by collecting materials throughout the map, and perhaps most importantly of all, a brand new heavy-weapons focused legend called Rampart!

While the list of her abilities has not been announced just yet, you can get a pretty good idea of what Rampart is all about through two of the newly posted trailers. The first is an animated short setting up Rampart's backstory, while the second is the Season 6 launch trailer. Have a peek:

I'd love to tell you more in terms of details, but I'm afraid that's pretty much it for now. The only other thing I can reveal is that Season 6 will come with a brand new Battle Pass that contains the usual assortment of around 100 new items, as well as a new ranked season to sweat over.
