On July 8, EA confirmed that Apex Legends Season 10 will introduce a new Ranked Arenas mode in the game. This announcement happened during the EA Play Future of FPS show. 

The next season of Apex Legends is expected to go live after August 3, 2021. Respawn’s Director of Comms, Ryan K. Rigney confirmed that while the current Arenas mode doesn’t have a ranked system in play, there is an MMR system in place.

“There actually is a hidden MMR-style rating system even in pubs for Arenas,” wrote Ryan. “So, should start to feel less stompy after you get enough games in.” This determines the skill level of each player for matchmaking.

This has garnered a ton of excitement among the Apex community, as Ranked mode has proven to be popular. We’ll have to wait until Season 10 launches to see this implemented.

Meanwhile, the upcoming Arenas-based Thrillseeker Event will also introduce a new map for the 3v3 mode. This area will be called “Overflow,” and it’s exciting to see how many changes Respawn has planned.
