Apex Legends players will be glad to know that Respawn has officially announced Apex Legends Season 7, meaning that we now know exactly what’s coming. Prior to this, we had information that was leaked by data miners. However, we couldn’t completely rely on it as Respawn always tells us to take leaked info with a grain of salt. But now, everything has been confirmed.
Apex Legends Season 7 Confirmed
Apex Legends Season 7 is going to be different from the previous few ones as it’s going to change the game entirely. There were rumors about a new map coming in the next season, and it turned out to be true. Furthermore, for the first time in Apex’s history, we will be seeing vehicles. So without any further due, here’s what’s coming to Apex in Season 7.
To begin with, the next season is going to feature a new Legend called Horizon. For those who don’t know, her arrival was confirmed through the in-game teaser in the Firing Range. Everyone was shocked considering Respawn first releases a set of teasers before revealing a Legend. But this was not the case with Horizon. Respawn is yet to reveal her abilities, but the trailer did give us a closer look at what she can do.
Before Season 6 went live, there were many rumors going around claiming that the sixth season is going to feature a new map. Everyone was excited about it, but things didn’t go as expected. When Season 6 was released, all we go to see were a few map changes, with the developers not telling us anything about a new map. However, in the past few weeks, these rumors once again started to emerge. But this time, it’s official.
Respawn officially confirmed that Apex Legends Season 7 is going to feature a new map called Olympus. This is the very planet lifeline mentioned at the end of Season 5’s quest. This city is actually a floating one, and it was changed after a disaster hit it. Judging from the launch and gameplay trailer of Season 7, Olympus is something we have never seen before. It is different than the current two maps and is really bright as compared to them.
Finally, for the first time in Apex’s history, we will be seeing vehicles. There have been a few leaks about such things in the past, but there was nothing major. However, in Season 7, you will be able to drive a new vehicle called Trident with your squad. The best part about the Trident is that it can be further customized using different abilities. For instance, Rampart can place her minigun on the back of it. Similarly, you can also place Gibraltar’s Shield on it.
Clubs are also making their way to Apex Legends in Season 7. These clubs will basically let you find “like-minded” players. This will allow you to build a community and promote your clan throughout the season. At the moment, we currently don’t know how things will work, but we’ll know more once the next season goes live.
Apex Legend Season 7 is going to mark the game’s release on Steam. This is perfect for those who use usually use Steam but have to opt for Origin for Apex. If you make a switch to Steam, then you’re progress will be carried over. Furthermore, you’ll also receive some Valve themed gun charms, something that will add a nice touch to your weapons. Many players have been complaining about the poor optimization of the Origin client. Hopefully, once the Steam version becomes available, these issues will be buried deep in the ground.
While this hasn’t been officially confirmed by Respawn, data miner Shrugtal suggested that Gadgets will become available in the game at some point. He mentioned that players might get to see something like Smoke Grenades, but nothing has been confirmed by Respawn so far. All we can do is wait and see what the developers have in mind for us.
Apex Legends Season 7 will go live on November 4. I’m personally pretty excited about it as I just can’t wait to try out the new map. The next season is also going to feature a brand new battle pass that will be filled with exciting new items.
