Apex Legends, like most battle royales, segments its available loot and modes with a seasons system.

Each season lasts about three months and typically introduces a new legend, balance changes, and battle pass. Seasons also often include new cosmetic items, weapons, maps, and more. 

Starting with season five, released back in 2020, quests were added to the game. These daily and weekly goals help players accrue points toward the battle pass, which grants rewards for each level attained. Quests can also be aligned with collection or lore events and can feature their own trackers separate from that season’s battle pass.

The most recent season, called Resurrection, kicked off on Aug. 8. It features the long anticipated reworks to Revenant and the Charge Rifle, the addition of Broken Moon to mixtape game modes, and updated areas on King’s Canyon and World’s Edge.

Here are the start and end dates for all Apex Legends seasons.

When does Apex Legends’ season 18 end?

Based on the in-game counter on the battle pass, Apex’s season 18 ends on Oct. 39, giving players just over three months to unlock all of the season’s rewards. Like with previous seasons, the following season after Resurrection will begin the same day as the previous one ends.
