Respawn Entertainment plans to raise the level cap in Apex Legends for the first time in two years when Season 14 goes live Aug. 9.

When Apex first launched in February 2019, its level cap was set at 100. By December, Respawn had bumped that number up to 500, allowing players more rewards and goals to work toward. The level cap has remained stagnant ever since despite many players calling on the studio to bump it yet again.

Respawn Entertainment has confirmed the increase, but precise details of the increase — such as the new cap or attendant rewards — remain under wraps.

"Aim for staggering new heights with the Level Cap Increase," reads the blurb on the game's site.

Without official word from Respawn, leakers have posited a new cap as high as level 700, with new cosmetics and Apex Packs to unlock along the way.

Players will get the full picture on the level cap when Season 14 launches early next month, bringing with it the new Legend, Vantage, and a revamped Kings Canyon.
