A new Apex Legends update 1.000.009 released on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. According to the official Apex patch notes, the latest update added a new Legend (Newcastle), a monstrous map update, Ranked Reloaded, and more. Apart from this, Apex Legends version 1.009 also includes various bug fixes and changes.
Read more details below.
Newcastle will have to prove himself a hero among Legends. In the Apex, Newcastle can use his Knockdown Shield to protect his squadmate as he revives them, and even drag them out of harm’s way. He can charge into the fray with a Mobile Shield, blocking weapon damage and deflecting grenades, while his Ultimate erects a fortified Castle Wall.
The latest Apex update 1.09 for PS5 and XSX added a brand-new POI; a washed-up sea creature known as the Downed Beast—which is a unique combat experience for Apex Legends—an organic combat zone, and a refreshing change from man-made architecture. On top of that, we added a brand new PvE feature, IMC Armories, at four strategic locations around the map which can dynamically change the championship outcome. Be wary here, you will encounter waves of Spectres but if you survive you can earn sweet loot tailored to your loadout.
The map rotation for the season for Saviors will be Storm Point, Olympus, and World’s Edge. We’re also removing the longer 2-hour rotation block. We felt that could be too long considering it could span the whole play session for some people.
Apex Legends: Saviors’ upgraded Ranked system adds tier demotions, entry cost adjustments, and a rework of Ranked Points to promote teamplay. The current Ranked goals revolve around Teamplay for Victory, and Accurate Skill & Better Competition. We are making a large number of changes that focus on these two core pillars, with the outcome that players will focus on playing as a team and playing for the win, and RP will be a more accurate representation of your overall game skill.
