Apex Legends Season 3 will begin on October 1, and with it comes a new hero, a new weapon, and a new Battle Pass boasting over 100 exclusive cosmetics, as announced by EA and Respawn Entertainment.
Crypto has popped up in the Season 2 launch trailer, on banners in Kings Canyon, in datamined files, and a leak from the GameStop Managers Conference. Hints that a big change is coming to the battle royale were found on screens showing a decryption progress bar and a glitchy announcer; even Respawn developers acted surprised by Crypto’s handiwork. And yesterday, players were actually running into Crypto who was busy hacking terminals in a disused room over in Labs.
Now, Crypto has officially been unveiled with the announcement of Apex Legends’ third competitive season, Meltdown. A short animated trailer shed a little light on who they are and how the Crypto alias came to be. I’m assuming their mum didn’t christen them Crypto, but Apex Legends is set in the future, and seeing as in our present day there are children called Daenerys and Tyrion, I’ll admit that anything is possible.
Regarding their abilities, Respawn has not specified anything, but we could assume that they’d involve hacking and using their little drone that accompanies the hero. As well as Crypto and the robot, Meltdown will bring a new weapon. The Charge Rifle is an energy weapon that seems to pack a punch, but details are scant on how that will work. This Season’s Battle Pass will also include over 100 exclusive new items, and new Legendary skins.
Season 3 will kick off on October 1, and will update the scoring system in Ranked Play so that players will secure more points for eliminating the competition and placing high. In addition, the score multiplier will take into account assists and kills, and all players’ Ranks will decrease to a maximum of 1.5 tiers when Meltdown begins so that everyone will start fresh.
Apex Legends is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and Season 3 will begin on October 1. Watch the story trailer for Crypto below.
