Apex Legends Season 5 introduced us to the master thief Loba, but the splashy new Season 6 is nearly here, bringing with it a brand-new Legend that’s unlike anyone that’s come before her.

Here’s everything we know about Apex Legends Season 6, including Rampart, the latest Legend to enter the Apex Games.

Apex Legends Season 5 end date

Based on the in-game battle pass for Season 5, the current Apex Legends season is slated to end on or around August 17, 2020.

Season 5 began on May 12, 2020. Every Apex Legends season thus far has lasted around three months, so a mid-August matches up with our previous expectations. This also means that the transition between seasons will be almost seamless.

Apex Legends Season 6 start date

The official launch date for Apex Legends Season 6 is August 18, 2020.

Is there a trailer for Season 6?

Yes! Respawn Entertainment released the Season 6 launch trailer on August 6, 2020.

The trailer opens on a rocket about to blast off into space, but then it proceeds backward in time showing the many Legends fighting one another and dying in all sorts of ways. We do see Bangalore standing behind some kind of energy shield that protects her, but she’s able to fire her gun through it. The last character shown is Ramya Parekh, aka Rampart, as she fires some kind of huge mounted minigun.

“Right on!” she says at the end of the trailer aboard the dropship. “Sheila and I are ready to dance.” And with a colorful neon splash, the trailer confirms the Season 6 launch date of August 18.

What is the Apex Legends Season 6 theme?

The season’s launch trailer confirms that the Season 6 theme is “Boosted.”

Who is Rampart in Apex Legends Season 6?

After her debut in the Season 6 launch trailer, Rampart became the focus in a new video published August 11. “While running her own modding shop, Ramya Parekh (aka Rampart) built her rep in underground gauntlet circuits,” the description reads. “But success has a way of making enemies. Good thing she knows how to use all those fancy weapons she’s upgraded…”

In the animated mini-episode, Rampart hangs out at a bar with Bangalore and Gibraltar, and she has a competitive rivalry with Bangalore that’s entertaining to watch as the badass women challenge each other in an amicable way. Later, members of a gang attack her, knock her out, and set fire to her shop. During the confrontation, she deploys an energy shield that’s the same one we saw Bangalore firing from behind in the Season 6 launch trailer. When she comes to, the villain from Titanfall 2, , shows up and offers her a ticket into the Apex Games.

“Recruited by the Outlands most ruthless mercenary Blisk, Rampart is never one to back down from a fight — and so this street modder’s journey into the Apex Arena kicks off following an ambush in her small shop,” official materials from Respawn read. “And while Rampart’s cheeky, humorous demeanor might differ from other vendetta-driven Legends, her hunger for victory is no laughing matter.”

A long-standing rumor had confirmed Rampart as the next legend many months ago. This was deduced using a development sheet that leaked shortly after Apex launched in 2019.
