Apex Legends Kings Canyon Map Is Already Changing Ahead Of Season 2
The Flyers are coming.
Ahead of Season 2's launch on July 2, Apex Legends is already beginning to undergo changes. After the recent arrival of the dragon-like Flyers, even more of the map has changed in advance of what's teased in the newly released Season 2 trailers. Next time you drop in Kings Canyon, head on over to Repulsor Station and you'll notice the once dormant facility has reawakened.
First noticed by Reddit user FrozenFroh, the IMC Repulsor Tower at Repulsor Station has begun to spin. Titanfall and Titanfall 2 fans may remember the huge towers from Respawn's popular shooter franchise. When the towers spin, they emit a painfully loud sound at a frequency that's inaudible to humans. However, it's excruciating to animals, and so the IMC (the antagonists of the Titanfall franchise) use the towers to keep the alien Flyers and Leviathans away from important structures.

Since Apex Legends' launch, the Repulsor Tower has remained inactive. The tower is most likely being turned on now in response to the growing Flyer population, which have begun invading Kings Canyon. However, as we know from Apex Legends Season 2's launch trailer (embedded above), a mysterious hacker--most likely the rumored character Crypto--is about to destroy that tower. With its destruction, there's nothing keeping the Flyers and much larger Leviathans at bay, and their invasion of Kings Canyon will make huge changes to the battle royale game's map.
The start of Season 2 is right around the corner, and it introduces a bunch of new content and features in Apex Legends. The most notable change is the aforementioned transformation of Kings Canyon, which sees the destruction of several landmarks and the creation of a few new ones. Titanfall 2's L-Star is also being added as a Legendary Gold energy-based weapon, randomly dropping in Supply Drops like the Kraber and Mastiff. The Season 2 battle pass offers more Legend cosmetics and weapon skins to unlock, as well as brand-new Skydive Emotes. You'll also gain access to a ranked playlist with the launch of Season 2, giving you the chance to climb the six-tiered ladder between Bronze and Apex Predator. Finally, just like Season 1, Season 2 introduces a brand-new Legend for you to play: Wattson, the daughter of the man who built the Kings Canyon arena.
In GameSpot's Apex Legends review, Phil Hornshaw wrote, "Apex Legends is a mix of smart shooter ideas that makes for a competitive, team-based game that gets at all the best parts of battle royale while addressing a lot of the weaknesses. Respawn's intense focus on team play makes Apex more than just a worthy addition to the genre; it's an indicator of where battle royale should go in the future."
