The Apex Legends update for Season 15 is here, and the changes bring another facelift to the high-octane battle royale title.
Every drop in Apex Legends is a new experience. From hunting down every last chest for the best loot to scrambling to take down enemy squads to your favorite spots, Apex Legends has carved a unique name for itself even amid the sea of similar games.
This is because unlike other big battle royale hits Fortnite and Warzone, Apex Legends has prioritized its own combination brand consisting of fast moves and unique character abilities over more gimmicky approaches.
So while you spend some time fiddling with weapon attachments, if you fire your weapon no one will turn into a house – you have to battle it out in the gulag to get back into the fight.
With Apex Legends Season 13, we saw some ranking changes (which felt awful for lower ranks), changes in Stormpoint and the new Legend Newcastle.
Fortunately, Season 15, titled Eclipse, does not disappoint.
Whether you come back to Apex Legends or never left, there’s a lot coming your way with the new update. Here’s what to look out for.

Apex Legends Update: New Map Season 15
The new map (opens in new tab) in Apex Legends Season 15 is Broken Moon. As the name suggests, the location on the surface of a moon makes for interesting terrain, as well as a new way to get around: zip rails, the flashier version of ziplines that can take you straight to new POIs or help you get out of a tight spot.
Speaking of points of interest, let’s take a look at all the new ones you can visit here on Cleo:
- Stasis Net Array
- Atmostation and backup atmo
- Perpetual Core
- The split
- alpha base
- Eternal Gardens
- Breaker Wharf
- Production yard
- the foundry
- Dry Gorge
Apex Legends Update: Catalyst, the New Legend
A new season brings a lot of changes, and in this case a new playable character. Born on Planet Boreas and much more fond of spells than human companionship, Catalyst is a magical sorceress and happens to be Respawn’s first openly transgender legend.
She found solace on the moon, Cleo, after the devastating loss of her best friend prior to the events of Season 15.
- Passive power (barricade): Reinforce and fortify doors, lock them from enemies
- Tactical ability (piercing spikes): Throw some ferrofluid that crystallizes into spikes, injuring enemies and leaving Catalyst unharmed by their spikes
- Ultimate Skill (Dark Veil): Release a wall of ferrofluid that gradually blinds enemies walking through it
Apex Legends Update: Battle Pass Season 15
A new season means a new battle pass, and Eclipse brings it to Apex Legends season 15. Access to the premium version of the pass gives you access 950 Apex Coins ($10/£8/$AU11.95).
In terms of cosmetics, you can see a few in the trailer above.
