An Apex Legends bug might have just given fans an early look at World’s Edge’ night version, and to say it looks pretty interesting might just be an understatement.

Back in season three Respawn Entertainment briefly diverted from their usual map changes and gave Kings Canyon a different feel by putting out a night version. It was originally used for the Shadowfall LTM and proved so popular with fans that Respawn made it available as a part of the Grand Soiree event. 

With Kings Canyon having a night time-variant, fans have been reimagining World’s Edge in a similar vein. Some have dished out concept images that include having the lava around the map by the main source of light under a night setting.

However, it appears as if Respawn could finally be set to give fans what they want after a bug showed off parts of World’s Edge under a night sky.

Kings Canyon at night was released back in season three and fans have wanted a World’s Edge version too.

It was pointed out by Reddit user Rumpost, who noted that during a recent game, they were respawned by their teammates and came back to a darker version of World’s Edge. 

“I thought it was just some glitch but then I got to Harvester and saw the lights!,” the Redditor commented, noting that everything was also “blue and darker” around the map. “This makes me think I glitched into a World’s Edge night map.”

However, sadly some might say, it seemingly didn’t last too long. Rumpost noted that their game ended up crashing out due to a Wraith portal, so, we haven’t got any shots of Fragment West or even Lava City under the dark sky.

Of course, the photo that the Redditor captured is certainly enough to spark speculation, but as of now, Respawn hasn’t said anything about the possibility of a nighttime World’s Edge. 

If it were to happen, and they followed the same release as Kings Canyon at night, we wouldn’t see until around Halloween. So, whatever happens, there is certainly a wait in store.

Best FOV for Apex Legends on PS4, Xbox and PC

Having the perfect setup is one of the keys to victory in Apex Legends, with FOV being a hotly debated topic every season. So, we’ve got the best FOV settings that could change the game for you.

There are plenty of factors that go into having success in Apex Legends. Of course, you need to pick the right Legend for your playstyle, find strong weapons and attachments, and have some luck with the safe zone. 

Outside of those, you also need to get settings that fit too. This laundry list of options includes the FOV, or Field of View, that allows you to see more, or less if you want, of the action depending on what feels comfortable. 

It’s an adjustable setting, so depending on the day, you might decide to try something else. So, if you want to make a tweak, we’ve got a few options that will fit a few different playstyles.

Deciding on your FOV setting can be a game-changer in Apex.

105 FOV

Most players might see the FOV setting and quickly bump it up so that they can see everything, and while that doesn’t work for everyone, it is a viable option.

In that case, you’ll want to bump it up to around 105, because you’ll be able to see players clearly on both the right and left side of the screen, while also retaining a somewhat central feeling to your FOV.

It will have a slight drawback if you’re fighting at range because it won’t give you that tunnel vision-like feeling of a lower setting, but if you’re playing with a higher FOV, that’s unlikely to be your playstyle anyway. If you sit physically farther away from your TV/monitor, this very wide FOV will make it trickier for you to spot targets far in the distance.

Picking an FOV setting is based on your playstyle and there’s no ‘one size fits all’ option.

90 FOV

Setting your FOV to 90 is perfect if you want to strike a balance between fighting at both long and short-range as it offers good vision for both.

Going with 90 doesn’t give you the tunnel vision-like feeling of slightly lower settings, and is a bit more natural than reaching 100 or even going beyond that. You’ll feel like whatever enemy you’re targeting is in the middle of your view at all times.

70-75 FOV

Now, if you want something that is very long-range focused, going between 70-75 is the best option, regardless of whether you’re on PC or a console.

Yes, you won’t be able to see everything to your side, of course, but everything that appears at distance will be more central in your view rather than just being a speck of dust in some others. 


Just like having a favorite legend and weapon, setting the FOV is a personal choice and, yes, you can follow pro players, but what works for them might not work for everyone. 

A higher FOV can also reduce frame rate, so if you’re not on a powerful PC setup, you may notice reduced FPS on a higher FOV setting.

But, it might be worth giving these different values a try to see if it improves your game and helps you pick up more wins than before.
