Developer Respawn Entertainment has announced that the Apex Legends level cap will be raised on August 9 alongside the game’s upcoming Season 14 update. Respawn also highlighted the upcoming changes to the Kings Canyon map, adding a new point of interest called Relic alongside a visual upgrade.
Respawn experience design director Aaron Rutledge commented on the level cap increase via VGC saying:
“When we launched Apex we had an account max level of 100, which would get you about 30 Apex Packs by the time you hit max level,” he said. “And then in year one we raised that to level 500, which allowed players to earn about 200 Apex Packs. In Season 14 the time has come to lift that cap even higher and expand what our most engaged players can dig into. We’re going to expand the max level cap by looping through 1-500 three additional times, essentially raising the level cap to 2,000. This will add an additional 345 Apex Packs to what you can earn by account progression, and that raises the total number of Apex Packs you can earn by playing to 544. And if anyone’s familiar with our Heirloom system, you know that once you hit 500 you’re guaranteed to get an Heirloom, so I think a lot of players will be excited to finally be rewarded for the time they put in and get that Heirloom.”
