Get your first look at the game’s new map, Olympus
After previously dropping new details about season seven for Apex Legends, Respawn Entertainment have released the launch trailer.
Season seven is expected to drop on November 4, bringing with it a new map, legend and a variety of other new content. The trailer begins with a few of the game’s original heroes heading off into space, before arriving at the new map, Olympus, providing a tease at the layout for the vibrant new environment.
The stylistic trailer also gives further insight to the character traits of new legend, Horizon, a Scottish astrophysicist who is shown to have a gravity tornado as her special ability. After the heroes meet Horizon, a first-look at the Apex Legends’ new vehicle, The Trident, is shown in action. The vehicle is built for squads and quick traversal around the map.
Watch the full season seven launch trailer below:
Season seven launches on November 4, the same date that Steam version of the game will be released. PC players will be able to play the game from either the Origin launcher or via Steam, alongside with cross-progression. Steam users can obtain a variety of unique Apex Legends rewards for their Steam page from the game’s store page.
The Nintendo Switch version of Apex Legends was expected to launch later this year, however, the developer has since delayed the port until 2021. It explained that “this year has brought on unexpected new challenges, to put it mildly, and we don’t want to rush anything out.”
Cross-play for Apex Legends also recently launched in a beta format. While console players are able to freely fight between different systems, PC players will remain against others on the same platform, unless a console user directly joins the party of a friend playing on PC.
