Apex Legends Unveils Season 15 Titled Eclipse Featuring Trans Legend Catalyst, New Map Boreas’ Moon and Gifting
Respawn’s popular Battle Royale title Apex Legends has unveiled its newest update in Season 15 titled Eclipse.
The upcoming season will launch on November 1, and it features a ton of exciting additions including a new Legend, map and more.
The biggest news about Eclipse has to be the arrival of the newest character in Catalyst, who is set to be the game’s first transgender Legend.
We first heard about Catalyst in the Stories from the Outlands: Last Hope lore video, which shed light on the character’s origins and backstory. The animated video explains how Catalyst – real name Tressa Smith finds herself embroiled in an eco-terrorist plan to save Boreas’ moon, Cleo.
In the recent launch trailer for Eclipse, we get a glimpse at Catalyst’s abilities featuring the ferrofluid she carries along with her. The upcoming Legend has been revealed to be “an experienced terraformer and defensive conjurer”, as she showcased her skills against Seer in yesterday’s trailer.

Speaking of Cleo, Apex Legends will also be introducing a new location for players to battle it out in the Moon of Boreas. The long-rumored map has been heavily teased over the last few months, with the hype eventually leading up to Catalyst’s lore video, where we saw rocks floating around Cleo. Expect to hear more about the map’s POIs and many other details in the coming days.
Finally, the developers at Respawn have also confirmed that the game will finally offer a new Gifting feature, which will be available once Eclipse launches on November 1. The new feature will allow players to gift their friends with items, skins and bundles that can be acquired with Apex Coins from the Store. While it’s always nice to shower your friends with love, the Battle Royale title has a time-limit of 24 hours, where you can send up to five gifts.
