Apex Legends season 3 surely left everyone surprised after it introduced a brand-new map to the game. Although the new map, called “World’s Edge,” was leaked by data miners prior to season 3, most fans were still unaware of it. And now, Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek, who is considered as one of the most popular streamers on Twitch, recently revealed why he loves the new map of Apex Legends. Just after his first stream of season 3, the streamer instantly fell in love with it.
The new map has basically replaced the old one, which was Kings Canyon. Kings Canyon is the map that has remained a part of Apex since the game was released in February. Almost every player knew the map and was familiar with all its locations. This is the very reason why some players are not enjoying the new map. However, while some players are finding it difficult to adjust in World’s Edge, Shroud just can’t get enough of it.
Shroud Talks About the New Map
Shroud revealed that he is a fan of the design of World’s Edge. Only after his first stream of season 3, the latter instantly gave his reasons. “The verticality of this map looks way better than the old one. Yeah, I really like the design of it, I love the design of it I’m a big fan.” He continued, “There’s a lot more long-range poking, looking around, up and down, it’s fun.” This kind of means that Shroud thinks of Kings Canyon as a place where you don’t get to engage in more long-ranged battles.
Why Some Fans Are Not Enjoying the New Map
While some fans are enjoying the new fans, many are not happy with the fact that Kings Canyon is gone. They are concerned about the removal of the map since they spent a lot of time on it. They questioned Respawn about why they simply didn’t keep it instead of removing it from the game. However, Apex Legends’ developer Drew McCoy explained the reasons behind the decision and even hinted that the old map might make its way back to the game sometime in the future.
Fans shouldn’t worry about this a lot since World’s Edge is also a really amazing map. It might be different from Kings Canyon, but that is something that provides us with a new and exciting experience. Some players are also struggling to know about the best landing spots in the new map. The thing which is bothering them is that the places with high-tier loot are overly populated, while the remaining locations only offer level 1 loot. However, it will be wise to spend some time learning the map instead of rushing for kills. This will help you with getting familiar with the map even more quickly.
In any case, Apex Legends season 3 is a success since fans all over the world are enjoying it. The new season has also added Crypto to the game, the very character who was leaked some time ago.
