Apex Legends is one of the best battle royale titles out there. It was released in February 2019, and its launch was a success as it attracted around 25 million players in its first week. In fact, it was downloaded by 50 million players in its first month.
The reason behind why the game became so popular was its unique gameplay. It is the first game to feature the concept of Legends. For those who don’t know, Legends are the playable characters in the game and each one has its own special abilities. Other than that, the world of Apex Legends is filled with amazing things. However, there was one thing that players loved a lot, and Respawn decided to take it away.
Respawn’s Previous Decision
When Apex Legends season 3 went live, Respawn replaced the old map, Kings Canyon, with a brand new one. The new map is called World’s Edge, and some players were not happy with its arrival. The reason behind this was the fact that almost every player was attached to Kings Canyon, and most of them spent months trying to learn everything about it. But when they finally started to get the hang of it, the developers decided to replace it with a new one.
Soon after the map was removed, players started expressing their disappointment on the official subreddit of Apex Legends. Some even suggested that Respawn should introduce an options for players to choose the map they want, while others proposed a voting system. But now, it seems like the developers have finally decided to hear their fans as Kings Canyon is going to make a return in Apex Legends season 4.
Kings Canyon Is Returning
Kings Canyon is going to return in the second half of season 4. The fan-favorite map will be available starting March 24, meaning that it will enter in the second split of ranked matches. However, one thing to keep in mind here is that Respawn will most likely make it available for unranked matches too so that everyone gets the chance to play their favorite map again.
Changes To World’s Edge
Before Kings Canyon arrive, players will have to play in a modified version of World’s Edge. This is because season 4 is confirmed to introduce big changes to World’s Edge. Apex’s design director Jason McCord claimed that players can expect to see some big map changes in the upcoming season. Although the developers haven’t revealed what these changes are going to be, they will be linked with Forge.
For those who don’t know, Forge is the next character that will get added to the game’s list of Legends in the upcoming season. McCord claimed that this character will have something to do with the changes that will take place in World’s Edge. There is even a picture on the website of EA that shows a gaping sinkhole in Capitol City.
Apex Legends season 4 is currently scheduled to go live on February 4. The next season is going to introduce a lot of exciting new content.
