Apex Legends has given players their first look at the new ‘Olympus’ map coming in Season 7 via an effect on the game’s official Instagram story.

The hype just keeps on building for the next Apex season, and Respawn has already made it pretty clear Olympus will be the newest map added to the game.

Now, we’ve finally gotten a peek at what it will actually look like with a new teaser posted to Instagram on Oct. 27. In it, you can see the giant red domes/balloons that hold up the floating city, a tall structure with a yellow ramp coming off of it in the center, and another round structure further in the back.

Strangely enough, there doesn’t seem to be any floor from this perspective, that’s because Olympus actually floats in the air, and the camera is located off the edge of the map and is looking at it from the side.

The new map, which Dexerto called all the way back in Season 5, has been mentioned and name-dropped in multiple Apex Legends teasers over the past few months. It’s arrival did end up being delayed slightly, but now it’s finally on its way.

To put it more accurately, we might actually be on our way to it instead – based on the Hammond rocket on World’s Edge, which activated its main thrusters just before Season 7 gets started.

Respawn describes Olympus as a “beautiful, lush city in the clouds,” and from their Instagram story hints, it’s not hard to see why. A look at the new map from another perspective shows a lush, alien landscape of purple grass and sakura trees surrounding the Oasis point of interest, which also has one of the mysterious new Trident vehicles parked out front.

We’re not too far off from enjoying Olympus in-game; the new world will make its debut in Apex Legends when Season 7: Ascension kicks off on November 4.

As for the competitive side of things, it’s slated to be in the ranked play rotation from November 4 to December 15, after which it’ll be switched out in favor of World’s Edge until the end of the season.
