Overview Of Apex Legends Season 3's New Map, World's Edge, Revealed

Where we droppin'?


Respawn has released the overview look of Apex Legends Season 3's new map, World's Edge. The map will replace Kings Canyon at the start of Season 3, which is scheduled to begin on October 1.

Based on the overview, it's difficult to tell just how much bigger World's Edge is to Kings Canyon, though after playing on the new map we estimate it's about two to three times larger. The map is divided into three parts, with the top right portion of the map themed around ice--the Epicenter operating as the major landmark. The bottom part of the map is themed around fire, with two major landmarks: Thermal Station and The Dome.

Snaking between both sections, and extending from the top left of the map down to the middle right, is an urban-like environment. It's here that you'll find the train that travels throughout the map--providing a means for squads to bunker down while still remaining on the move. The train seems to travel between Skyhook (teased in Cryptos' first in-game appearance), Capital City, and Sorting Factory with about a half-dozen smaller landmarks scattered along the track.

A new map isn't the only piece of content dropping into Respawn's battle royale during Season 3. Apex Legends is also getting a new playable character (Crypto), weapon (the Charge Rifle), hop-up attachments, golden armor effects, and battle pass. The content won't stop there, though, as Respawn has already hinted at an upcoming Halloween-themed limited-time event. The developer has also teased Apex Legends' twelfth character, who is likely scheduled to release at the start of Season 4.

Apex Legends is available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
