Apex Legends Season 11 is fast approaching, and it’s a big one — the November release will add the long-awaited Titanfall Simulacrum Pilot Ash, a new map, the C.A.R SMG, and more. Here’s everything we know, including its exact release date.

Apex Legends Season 10 brought plenty of exciting content for fans, with the 18th Legend Seer, World’s Edge map changes, and the Rampage LMG.

Season 11 will be the next and final update of 2021, and it’s a big one. After Olympus’ launch at the end of 2020, a fourth battlefield will be joining the rotation in Season 11.

That’s not the end of it, with Titanfall’s Ash, and the C.A.R SMG weapon, also making their grand entrance, alongside a host of other balance changes and a ranked rework.



Apex Legends Season 11 release date

Season 11 of Apex Legends, named Escape, will start on November 2, 2021.

This also means you have until November 1 to wrap up your Emergence Battle Pass and grind for those Volt skins.

Apex Legends Season 11 gameplay trailer

While the launch trailer has been released for Apex Legends Season 11, the gameplay trailer is still on its way.

It is scheduled to premiere on the Apex Legends YouTube channel at 8am PT / 11am ET / 4pm BST on October 25, and you can watch it above after it goes live.

New Legend Ash joins roster in Apex Legends Season 11

Titanfall fans get ready, you can finally play as Ash in Apex Legends.

Ash is back from the dead — well, kind of — in Apex Legends. After Jack Cooper “killed” her off in Titanfall 2, her Simulacrum body has been put back together to participate in the Apex Games.


While her kit hasn’t been revealed just yet, the launch trailer did showcase her creating a portal with her Titanfall-inspired sword, and she also had a stun akin to the Ronin Titan’s Arc Wave ability.

We will likely learn more about Ash in October 25’s gameplay trailer before her full launch in Apex Legends Season 11 on November 2.

Apex Legends’ fourth map launching in Season 11

Apex Legends’ fourth map is set on a sunny, tropical island.

A year since Olympus was added into the Apex Legends map pool, a new battlefield will be joining the rotation in Season 11.

At present, though, it’s under wraps — the Escape release page simply states: “A storm is brewing. No matter how beautiful it seems, every corner of the Outlands is a dangerous place. You’d be wise to remember that.”


The map was initially showcased in the launch trailer, featuring sunny beaches and plenty of critters ending Mirage’s holiday swiftly. This implies the new map will likely involve some PvE content like Trials on World’s Edge, and the leaks have confirmed that somewhat.

Like Ash, we will likely hear more details about the new map — including its official name — once the gameplay trailer launches on October 25.

C.A.R. SMG weapon added in Apex Legends Season 11

The C.A.R SMG was deadly in Titanfall, and should have a similar impact in Apex Legends.

Good news, Legends — more firepower is coming in the shape of the C.A.R. SMG in Apex Legends Season 11. It’s a popular weapon from Titanfall, making it a great addition alongside Ash.


EA’s description reads: “A flexible weapon, the C.A.R. SMG is the gun for when you’re ready to make a stand and become the last Legend still standing.”

Exact details on how the C.A.R. SMG works will be revealed on October 25 in the gameplay trailer.

Apex Legends ranked system undergoing KP changes

Apex Legends’ ranked system is getting another update in Season 11.

Despite initially shooting down claims of a ranked rework, Respawn have confirmed an update will be coming to Apex Legends Season 11.

The developers have been tightlipped on specifics so far, but communications lead Ryan Rigney told players “there are some changes to how KP will be calculated.”

Keep an eye out for the full list of changes ahead of November 2 so you can start your ranked grind off right.


Firing Range update inspired by Apex Legends Mobile expected

Apex Legends’ Firing Range could be undergoing some changes in Season 11.

We can also expect some updates to the Firing Range in Season 11, inspired by changes in the mobile version of Apex.

This could include a third person mode, 1v1 mode, unlimited ammo, and difficulty settings for bots.

However, this hasn’t been entirely confirmed, and there are no changes listed on the official EA site yet.

Balance changes expected for other Apex Legends characters

Wattson buff & nerf

Could a Wattson buff finally be arriving in Apex Legends Season 11?

There will also be changes to some of the existing Legends, and players will especially be hoping for a Wattson buff, and maybe some more Crypto updates as well.

You can check out all the buffs and nerfs we know about so far for Season 11 here.

For now, that’s all the information we have on Apex Legends Season 11 update. We’ll be sure to update this piece with any new information as soon as it becomes available.
