Apex Legends Ignite release time: when does the new season start?

Here's when Apex Legends: Ignite will launch in your time zone

Apex Legends: Ignite is set to be released today, bringing with it a host of changes to the map, rankings, a new Legend, and cross-progression across PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC. While cross-progression won’t be live for everyone right away, it should start rolling out to players alongside the Ignite update.

We’ve already gone over all the changes coming to Storm Point in Apex Legends: Ignite, as well as had a look at the big Ranked changes for the next season, but there’s one question on everyone’s minds: when can I play Apex Legends: Ignite?

Thankfully, publisher EA and developer Respawn Entertainment have given us a few details about Apex Legends: Ignite’s release time.

Apex Legends: Ignite launch times

Apex Legends: Ignite will launch on October 31, 2023 at 10am PT, much like previous seasonal updates in the past, as confirmed by the official Apex Legends Twitter account. For some regions, that will push the release firmly into November 1, 2023 — just missing out on the Halloween fun, but most players will be able to play Apex Legends: Ignite on the spookiest day of the year.

Here’s the launch time for each time zone:

October 31, 2023

  • PT: 10:00am
  • ET: 1:00pm
  • GMT: 5:00pm
  • CET: 6:00pm
  • IST: 10:30pm

November 1, 2023

  • JST: 2:00am
  • AEDT: 4:00am
  • NZDT: 6:00am

Apex Legends: Ignite will be bringing a host of weapon and Legend meta changes, which are set to focus on diversifying the mid-to-long range meta. The fan favorite 30-30 will get a small nerf, while some other weapons will get a buff to make them a little bit more viable.

Ignite’s biggest addition though is a new Legend called Conduit, a support character with a kit built around self-sacrifice. You can read everything you need to know about Conduit’s abilities here.
