May 2, 2021

Apex Legends fans from all around the globe are eagerly anticipating the start of season 9, titled “Apex Legends – Legacy”.

The new season promises a ton of interesting changes that look set to change how the game was played.

Speaking from first-hand experience (you can check out my hands-on Arenas Mode Preview now) Legacy is a very welcome change to the game.

With that in mind, what is the Apex Legends Season 9 official start time? Let’s take a look.

What is Apex Legends Arenas Mode?


Arenas is a brand new 3 v 3 mode coming to Apex Legends as part of the brand new Season 9 Legacy update.

It pits two squads of three legends head to head on smaller-scale maps across a maximum of nine different rounds.

With the way the mode is structured, each round of Arenas becomes increasingly intense as players earn more materials to earn in the shop and each team starts to learn their opposition’s tactics, allowing them to start planning counter measures.

What Else is Coming in Season 9?

Alongside the new Arenas Mode, Apex Legends Season 9 has plenty in store for players.

There is a brand new hero named Valkyrie who has some incredibly close ties to Titanfall 2. And a jetpack.

There’s also a brand new weapon coming this season – the Bocek Bow. While this weapon probably won’t change the meta too much, it’s incredibly fun to use and offers a range of different playstyles.

There is also a major change to the Olympus map, and of course, a brand new Battle Pass.

So, What is the Apex Legends Season 9 Official Start Time?

In typical Respawn fashion, they’ve not confirmed the start time of Season 9.

However, Apex Legends events typically begin at 10 am PT/ 1 pm ET/ 6 pm UK and this is likely to be the for Legacy.

All of the countdown timers in game also point to a release at the above time, however, should anything change – we’ll be sure to let you know!
