Hot on the heels of their Star Wars Jedi presentation, Respawn Entertainment went into their plans for Season 2 of Apex Legends. This is an extremely rapid-fire SMG, that's so powerful that it's only available through a care package.

Apex Legends tussles for dominance in the battle royale genre with global smash hits "Fortnite" and "PUBG". A new Battle Pass, called Battle Charge, promises tons of new cosmetics, but that's just the start of it. Season 2 will bring a new, but familiar weapon, daily and weekly challenges, a ranked mode, a tenth Legend and more.

The new weapon is the L-Star from Titanfall 2. An ultimate ability, titled Interception Pylon, allows her to drop electric fences across the playing field that block off foes from entering, that we assume deals a nasty shock in the process if touched. Titled Wattson, her abilities are all about team play and blocking the enemy from certain routes. With less than a month until the launch of season two, EA has officially unveiled Wattson, the game's second post-launch character. This passive allows Ultimate Accelerants to fully charge her ultimate, and standing near interception pylons will boost Tactical Ability recharge. The most skilled players will be able to work their way up through 6 tiers, and only the best will come out on top.

It's also going to take way less time for players to ding level 100 from now on.

Apex Legends season 2 also includes a ranked mode.

Wattson was introduced in Apex Legend's first cinematic for one of its characters.

Wattson's story is that she and her father helped build the Apex Arena, and she's considered the "kid sister" of the other Legends.

Closing out the stream was a sizzle reel that featured a very intriguing teaser - some sort of giant animal/monster eyeball.

With Season 2 comes a new and improved Battle Pass, full of fresh rewards, special challenges, even more Legendary skins, the ability to earn crafting metal, three entirely new content categories, and more.

There's also a couple "big things" coming to Kings Canyon during Season 2.

What do you think of all of the changes coming to Apex Legends next season?
