An Apex Legends leak has seemingly revealed the ‘first look’ at the Old Ways Bloodhound Town Takeover location – with the Technological Tracker’s Raven companion playing a big role. 

Since Respawn Entertainment started to follow the seasonal updates method for all-new content, Apex Legends players have had the chance to visit one-off locations based around some of their favorite characters.

The locations are known as the Town Takeover, with both Octane and Wraith gets spots in Kings Canyon before Mirage had the Mirage Voyage descend on World’s Edge. With players getting hyped about Bloodhound’s Town Takeover, we’ve seemingly had our first look at what is to come.

On April 5, a number of Apex Legends leakers, including iLootGames and Shrugtal, uncovered a set of promotional images for the upcoming event that are set to appear on Respawn’s official patch notes.

One image features a better look at the menacing Prowlers that will join the battle royale party, while the other shows Bloodhound standing with its Raven’s Bite heirloom underneath a giant raven. 

It was pointed out by Shrugtal who tweeted: “Just realized that the Raven in the first image is a giant statue in the zone actually on the map so it’s our first look at the Town Takeover.”

Of course, the image doesn’t reveal all that much about what else is set to come in the Town Takeover but there might have been other clues about where it is being set on World’s Edge.

The Apex leaker noted that a bird-like outline had appeared on another promotional image around the mountain, which is more commonly known as Sniper Ridge. This appears to be a link between the two images. 

However, until Respawn drops an update and starts the Old Ways event, we won’t truly know what we’re getting into with the all-new Town Takeover. 

Though we won’t have all that long to wait as The Old Ways event will kick off on Tuesday, April 7 and run through Tuesday, April 21.

Apex Legends hints at removing World’s Edge in Season 7

Apex Legends players are patiently waiting for Season 7 to begin and explore all the new content coming with it, but fans of World’s Edge will have to be patient to go back to Talos.

The map was added to Apex during Season 3 all the way back in October 2019 and was the second map in the game after King’s Canyon.

While it certainly mixed up the battle royale, it seems like World’s Edge will be on the way out when Season 7 gets going on November 4, 2020, based on what we’ve seen from Respawn.

In a tweet on Oct. 27, the official Apex Legends account hinted that “with World’s Edge on the verge of collapse, the Apex Games need to find a new home.”

It doesn’t take a genius to pick up on what Respawn is putting down here, as it seems the map will be removed from the game, at least for a while, with the start of Season 7.

This wouldn’t be without precedent either. Back in Season 3 when World’s Edge was first introduced King’s Canyon, the game’s original map from the release was removed until it returned in April of 2020.

With Ranked being broken into two splits for the new Season, Respawn plans to introduce players to Olympus, the new home of the Apex Games, before sending players back to WE later in the Ascension update.

In fact, Kings Canyon is already going to be completely nixed from Apex Legends’ ranked playlist in Season 7.

It seems likely that the Legends will board the giant rocket that appeared recently on World’s Edge and set off somewhere new to battle it out for the top spot.

As for what will happen to the train and everything else, there was a black hole showcased in Horizon’s Stories from the Outlands video, that certainly seems like it would be able to swallow the entire map, and even the planet it’s located on.
