EA and Respawn have released the first major update for Apex Legends Mobile’s first season. Not only does the update add new changes to the game’s map and systems, it also adds Loba, a beloved character from the original versions of the game, as well as a new battle pass, and a new limited-time mode.

The biggest change to the battle royale’s map is the Climatizer, which will cover different points of interest in snow and frost, changing the loot players might find in affected locations. It also allows players to find diamonds, which can be used to unlock cosmetics in the Season 1 shop. The Climatizer also adds a new grenade to Apex Legends Mobile’s weapon pool.
