Apex Legends data miners have revealed an early look at a leaked point-of-interest that could be replacing Skulltown in Kings Canyon.

The fifth season in Apex Legends brought along some major map changes, including the destruction of the fan-favorite location Skulltown, which was left underwater following Loba’s entrance to the battle royale.

Skulltown’s destruction also saw a significant chunk of the map fall into the ocean ahead of Season 5, however, it seems as if Respawn finally has something planned to take the place of the infamous point-of-interest.

Respawn devs have previously revealed that they are not afraid to make significant map changes, that will “shake the game up,” in a map like Kings Canyon, and new leaks have teased the next major changes could be added in Season 6.

Apex Legends data miner shrugtal, revealed that the empty corner of the map could soon have a new dome-like location, which was briefly teased in the Apex Legends devstream on June 22.

Shrugtal also claimed that the Skull which can be found near the cliffs would likely have to be removed, due to the scale of this newly leaked area, “This thing is massive, Suspended Skull must be getting removed for it.”

The Apex leaker also revealed an early look at the inside of this new POI, sharing images of a park, which is seemingly inspired by Titanfall 2’s tutorial area.

Shrugtal also claimed that this new location might also be able to fly, labeling it a ‘UFO,’ and sparking rumors that it could be used to transport the Legends to an entirely different map in later seasons.

Shrugtal later released a video on this mysterious “UFO”, highlighting a full look at all of the details this Season 6 map teaser will have to offer.

While it is unclear when exactly this new location is expected to be added, shrugtal has suggested that it will probably be added at some point during Season 6, which is expected to start on August 18.

However, it is unlikely that any of these potential changes will be confirmed by Respawn and Apex Legends fans will just have to wait and see what they decide to do in future updates.

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.
