Game Director Chad Grenier is also thrilled with the performance of Season 5.

Bringing more of the Apex Legends story and experience to life for our fans is the thrill of working on this game, and Season 5 is no exception.

This season we wiped out Skull Town, which really allowed us to have some fun and do something unexpected. We’re happy to see that players, both new and returning, are really enjoying it.

Season 5 introduced the new Legend Loba, a new Battle Pass, new Quests and saw the destruction of Skull Town.

Apex Legends is available now on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
