Olympus has been conspicuously absent from Apex Legends throughout Season 11. However whereas we’re all excited to return to the fan-favourite floating metropolis, it is wanting a wee bit worse for put on within the new launch trailer for Season 12: Defiance.
Earlier this week we have been reintroduced to Mad Maggie, a tooth-spitting rebel who’ll be becoming a member of the Apex Video games in Season 12 subsequent month. Right now’s Defiance launch trailer sees her add throat-tearing to that fairly grizzly resume—however our hungry hungry anti-heroine is not the one star of the approaching season.
Respawn beforehand teased that Olympus, Apex’s flying metropolis and finest area, could be returning in an altered kind. That kind, because it occurs, seems to be the results of plot shenanigans punting it throughout the galaxy and plummetting out of the clouds. Olympus now floats tentatively above a metropolis sprawl, with teasers for the sport’s third anniversary exhibiting lines of flying cars passing just underneath. Whereas we do not get take a look at the general form of Olympus post-warp, it seems just like the section equipment that despatched it there’ll doubtless develop into a brand new map location (changing Rift, at a look).
Apex has a behavior of completely blowing up maps with map adjustments, thoughts, and not always for the better. The very last thing I need is for Olympus to go the best way of World’s Edge—I like the map for its clear, modern design and compact structure, so this is hoping it hasn’t been too knackered by the journey—although these purple skies and falling homes are giving me loads trigger for concern.
We do additionally get a touch at a few of Maggies skills, from a sort of dart gun that fires thermite by way of partitions to what seems to be a Junkrat-style tyre she will be able to ship screaming at opponents (like poor Fusey right here). We’ll doubtless get extra particulars subsequent week, although followers have already famous that Maggie’s key artwork does additionally seem like she’s about to launch the mom of all Beyblades.
On that observe, get able to let ‘er rip when Apex Legends Season 12: Defiance launches on February 8.
