The launch of Season 2 in Apex Legends has brought several changes to the Kings Canyon map, and we're here to make sure you're caught up on everything there is to know.
The highly anticipated second season of Apex Legends finally went live on July 2, introducing a flurry of new content and significant changes to the popular battle royale.
One of the aspects of the game that was modified is the map, which now includes a couple of new named points-of-interest, as well as a more close-up look at the gigantic creatures known as Leviathans.
The arrival of Season 2 has added several new installations. camps, and outposts on the map, with the two most prominent ones being Containment and The Cage.
Containment is located in the northern reaches of the map, between Artillery and The Pit, finally giving a name to a part of Kings Canyon that was already a popular landing spot to begin with.
Easily the most noticeable new point-of-interest, The Cage is a six-story installation just to the right of the very dead center of the map, occupying the empty space between Hydro Dam and the river.
According to EA, this "behemoth" was created by an organization known as the Mercenary Syndicate in order to "draw competitors to supplies like moths like a grizzly flame."
The first thing players will notice when loading into a match in Season 2 will be the fact that the large, mysterious creatures known as Leviathans have gone from residing outside the boundaries of the map to the very center.
Two of the enormous creatures have traded the expanse of the surrounding waters for the central river, after apparently having stormed through the arena in rage.
As a result of their stampede, several familiar locations of the map were destroyed, forcing players who landed at these spots to get used to the destruction.
The once desolate and burned-down area known as the Shattered Forest has now become the nesting ground for Flyers.
As a result of this change, the forest is now lush with foliage and new plant-life again, along with a new outpost that could give players more incentive to roam through the area.
Apex Legends Season 2 - Battle Charge is now available across all platforms.
As always, we will continue to bring you all of the coverage for this brand new season as more details g et announced and discovered by players.
