While Respawn Entertainment has been teasing new character Crypto arriving in Apex Legends, it was their surprise reveal of a new map that caught everyone off-guard. Kings Canyon will be closed for business — at least for a little while – as everyone heads off to Planet Talos to battle in World’s Edge.
The map is larger than Kings Canyon with a lot of wide open areas as the developers try to push for teams to engage in longer range fights. The north-east side of World’s Edge is covered in ice, while the lower south has rivers flowing with lava – and of course, don’t stand in the lava unless you want to get hurt.
A trainline is interweaved throughout most of the major locations in World’s Edge, which seems to have replaced the supply dropships that would land in Kings Canyon. The train manoeuvres around the map stopping at key locations along the way, and when this happens supply bins rise up from below the station’s platform giving players a bunch of hidden gear.
The random supply drop has also been changed slightly, instead unmarked drones fly around in the sky with a supply box attached to them. These boxes change colours and alternate between blue, purple, and gold. So, depending on the timing of when you destroy them, they’ll drop that coloured gear from their stash.
Below is a list of named locations that you’ll find in World’s End:
- Drill Site
- Lava Fissure
- The Train Yard
- Thermal Station
- The Tree
- Fuel Depot
- Sorting Factory
- The Dome
- Lava City
- The Geyser
- Capitol City
- The Epicenter
We’ve already found an unmarked area of interest in The Vault, a locked room that will seemingly be able to be opened after a week-long countdown concludes.
Apex Legends Season 3 kicks off tomorrow where World’s End will be available to play on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
