Apex Legends Kings Canyon Gets Massive Changes In Season 5
As seen in the Season 5 gameplay trailer, Apex Legends' original map is getting a drastic makeover in Season 5: Fortune's Favor.
In the Apex Legends Season 5 gameplay trailer, we see the first few shots of what happens to Kings Canyon when the new season starts next week. It's a lot more than the destruction of Skull Town--much of Apex Legends' original map has changed.
In the screenshots embedded beneath the video below, you can see how Kings Canyon has changed. Loba's actions in the Season 5 launch trailer completely destroyed both Skull Town and Thunderdome, revealing a new underground area for squads to explore. Almost on the opposite side of the map, a new installation dominates the previously more rural area of Kings Canyon.
Alongside Loba, Season 5 adds a brand-new battle pass and cosmetics to Apex Legends. The season implements Quests as well, a new story-focused mode that adds a PvE option to Respawn's battle royale. Like the battle pass and daily/weekly challenges, Quests seems aimed at getting you to play Apex Legends almost every day--the new mode encourages you to drop into matches in order to unlock chapters in the mysterious new The Broken Ghost questline.
"Caught between the Apex Games and Hammond Robotics, Loba is spinning a web of lies and deceit in her personal quest for vengeance--but how far is she willing to go?" Respawn writes in a blog post about The Broken Ghost. "How does the Broken Ghost fit into her plans for Revenant? And what happens when one legend stumbles upon the truth? See a side of the legends' lives you've never seen before--outside of the Games! Alliances will be formed, friendships will be tested, vendettas will be born, and when the dust settles, nothing will be the same again in a mystery that has far-reaching consequences for them all."
