Apex Legends Launches Season 9 and Its 3v3 Arena Mode, Servers Promptly Crash
Apex Legends has launched both Season 9 and a new permanent 3v3 mode called Arena, and its popularity has caused server issues that are keeping players from experiencing the new content.
Apex Legends developer Respawn has already said that it is working on a fix, and its most recent update at 11:35pm PT on May 4 has confirmed that it is “seeing some progress but we aren’t out of the weeds yet. Will keep you updated!”
In addition to Arena, Season 9 also brings with it a new legend named Valkyrie, who is also known as Kairi Imahara. She is the daughter of Viper, a Titan Pilot from Titanfall 2 who was also a member of Blisk’s Apex Predators mercenary group.
There will also be a new Bocek Bow medium-range weapon, changes to Apex Legends’ map Olympus, and various changes to existing Legends.
Titanfall fans will also be happy to know that this current season will feature “a ton of Titanfall coming back into the game, one way or another.”
