Apex Legends‘Next season, “Escape,” takes players to Storm Point, the game’s fourth and newest map. A world premiere trailer on Monday showed fans what to expect from the setting. island, plus gameplay previews involving the latest legend and the return of a favorite weapon from Fall of the Titans 2.
Storm Point presents itself as a huge map, not necessarily with discrete biomes, but with distinctive environments alternating between natural surroundings and building interiors. A gravity cannon helps players navigate through it, and of course the developers at Respawn Entertainment want players to notice that they can fire weapons, throw grenades, and use tactics or ultimates while transporting. Players can slightly control their trajectory to avoid landing on anything dangerous.
Rangers (these are the lizard beasts), flyers (the, er, flyers), and spiders will also appear to harass everyone, providing PvE encounters for you and your team. We also take a look at the CAR SMG (at 1.30am from the trailer) and Ash’s abilities, including a tether that holds his opponents together – though they can still shoot and use other abilities.
Apex Legends: Escape is the 11th season of the hero-shooter, and it begins on November 2. This official Respawn blog post tells more about Storm Point.
