Whereas Apex Legends gamers have been handled to loads of new content material with the Awaken occasion, together with cosmetics, a restricted time mode, and a brand new focal point on Olympus, extra eagle-eyed gamers discovered new teasers for potential map modifications coming to the sport within the close to future.
Gamers that land on the new Lifeline city takeover on Olympus, Lifeline’s Clinic, will discover some magazines mendacity across the place. Titled issues like “Outlands Information” and “Outlands Information,” these teasers often give gamers a small glimpse into the sport’s lore. The headlines, nevertheless, point out an enormous change coming to Kings Canyon, in addition to the sport’s continued curiosity within the moon of Boreas, Seer’s house planet.
The headline “Salvage operation full” with a sub-headline of “say hey to Kings Canyon’s new relic” fairly clearly signifies the subsequent map change will most probably be on Kings Canyon and can most likely take the place of the Salvage POI. If the salvage operation is “full” then there’s most likely no want for Salvage as a POI to exist in its present kind.
Sharp gamers will most likely join the dots, then, and acknowledge that the “new relic” is most probably the large cranium from previous Cranium City that’s been suspended simply outdoors of Salvage since season 5.
If the Cranium City cranium is coming again, and Salvage goes away… effectively, it’s not too far of a leap to imagine a brand new model of Cranium City is within the works for Kings Canyon subsequent season. On the very least, the teaser appears to point Salvage will probably be changed or reworked indirectly.
Elsewhere, there’s extra information in regards to the moon of Boreas, which gamers noticed being struck by a meteor through the Seer reveal trailer. The journal notes there’s indecision over what to do with the moon, as its “future” is being referred to as into query. This can be a very attention-grabbing tidbit to incorporate alongside the journal place on the underside of the stack, which incorporates a peculiar construction alongside a headline studying “The Future Now.”
The construction itself seems considerably much like an untextured POI on the map that was part of the massive Apex content leak from March. Crucially, that map’s code identify on the time was “Divided Moon,” and it additionally featured a skybox stuffed with asteroids and house particles, whereas at the very least one portion of the map included an unlimited chasm stuffed with floating rock.
Whether or not or not the construction pictured on the journal is the POI featured on the leaked map, it appears pretty sure that there’s extra content material deliberate round Boreas and its moon.
It’s the kind of small, innocuous set dressing Respawn loves to incorporate as a glimpse into future content material, and it’s much more conspicuous positioned immediately subsequent to the information that issues are taking place on Kings Canyon whereas the map is out of rotation.
These are breadcrumbs of data, positive. However the Apex devs have confirmed themselves to be nice at turning breadcrumbs right into a path to observe over time.
