What's new in Apex Legends Season 11 Escape?

After the release of Seer in the previous season, we were wondering about what could the new legend bring to the game. Ash, the 'incisive instigator', joins the roster with an ultimate which can "tear open a one-day portal to a targeted location". Sounds like fun.

Apex Legends Season 11 also introduces a new map - Storm Point - home to a forgotten IMC research base, several tropical islands and gravity cannons. It's also the biggest map in the game to date (around 15% larger than World's Edge).

At a glance, here's what you can expect as part of Apex Legends Season 11 Escape:

  • New legend: Ash
    • Tactical Ability: Arc Snare
    • Passive Ability: Marked For Death
    • Ultimate Ability: Phase Breach

    • Wildlife nests with Prowlers, Spiders and Flyers to avoid or hunt
  • Escape Battle Pass with rewards including Apex Packs, XP boosts and skins
  • New Ranked season

Have fun during Season 11 Escape!
