Apex Legends Mobile Hyperbeat Patch Notes

The second half of the mobile game's sophomore season is bringing tons of new content--and changes--to the pocket-sized battle royale.

Comments

Apex Legends Mobile's mid-season update, Hyperbeat, is almost upon us, and it's bringing a lot of new content to the mobile game. A familiar face from Apex Legends on console and PC will be making his mobile debut alongside a new battle pass, new events, new game modes, and more.

Respawn recently released Hyperbeat patch notes in a blog post on the official Apex Legends website, detailing every change headed for Apex Legends Mobile this week. Keep reading for an in-depth look at what to expect when Apex Legends Mobile Season 2.5: Hyperbeat launches on August 23.

Crypto

Due to the fact that he was accidentally made available for purchase early, most players aren't too surprised that Crypto will be joining the games when the Hyperbeat update goes live. He functions a bit differently in Apex Legends Mobile than he does on console and PC. This is mainly due to the perk system, a feature unique to the mobile game. To learn more about Crypto's abilities and the perks he'll be able to equip in Apex Legends Mobile, check out our summary of Crypto's mobile abilities.

Pythas Theater Town Takeover

Rhapsody's floating party ship, the Encore Galore, is floating over to Airbase for the Pythas Theater Town Takeover. The event challenges players to fight their way through Rhapsody's POI-altering music to claim valuable rewards.

VIP Supply Bins

VIP Supply Bins will spawn on Kings Canyon once Hyperbeat goes live. Opening these Supply Bins will give you a VIP Pass, allowing you to access crates containing powerful gear.

Rhapsody's Underground Store Vault

A new series of cosmetics will be available via a Store Vault update containing a cosmetic collection called Rhapsody's Underground. In addition to the new cosmetics, Store Vault events will now have slightly higher odds of unlocking Eternal-tier items.

Hyperbeat battle pass

No mid-season update is complete without a new battle pass, and Season 2.5 is no different. The Hyperbeat Battle Pass contains 50 levels of brand new cosmetics, and will be available for purchase when the Hyperbeat update goes live on August 23 at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET.

Town Takeover: Pythas Theater

Pythas theater lands at Airbase in Kings Canyon. Fight your way through Rhapsody’s POI-altering song to claim your reward! With Encore Galore and Pythas Theater, King’s Canyon is the place to be so party up and party down!

VIP SUPPLY BINS

New VIP supply bins can be found all across Kings Canyon! Open VIP Loot Crates to collect your VIP pass and gain access to crates containing powerful gear.

RANKED UPDATE

With the release of Hyperbeat, we’re introducing a new ranked split as well as adding in additional Ranked Rewards. With that, we’re going to be resetting your rank like we did at the beginning Distortion—similar to the reset that occurred at the beginning of the previous season. Additionally, new Ranked rewards will be available to the higher ranks so jump in and compete to show off your skills!

NEW BATTLE PASS

Get ready to drop a Hyperbeat on your enemies and light up any lobby with new looks for Lifeline, Mirage, Pathfinder, weapons and more!

RHAPSODY’S UNDERGROUND

Rhapsody’s Underground makes a scene as the new Store Vault!

STORE VAULT CHANGES

Starting during Hyperbeat we have implemented a new mechanic to increase the drop rates for Eternal cosmetic items in the Store Vault! As you continue to draw from the Store Vault, the drop rates of the Eternal cosmetic items in the pool increase up to a specified cap (as set forth in the in-game Store Vault odds disclosures). The increased drop rates will reset after you pull an Eternal cosmetic item. Thank you for your continual feedback about Apex Legends Mobile! Please see the drop rates and additional rules and disclosures in the in-game Store Vault page for further details.
