Fragment boasts a new identity, now called ‘Monument’. The ever-popular hotdrop location has now been replaced by the Apex Games Museum.

This new POI has a deep underground area, with quick access to sniper nests via ziplines. It’s entirely covered with a glass ceiling, meaning players can see in below from the top. The museum shows off the history of Legends and the games.

The Museum charts the history of the Games, from Thunderdome to Apex, a section dedicated to the original legends.

Lava City has been replaced by a new zone called Stacks, where the construction building has been relocated. There’s also a new vault near Skyhook and chances of finding Vault keys are much higher than before. Trials have also gone through some revisions with the new season.

Respawn also explain, “with additional Climatizers added, there’s new snow banks, less volcanic smoke and clearer visibility.”

Additionally, Mirage à trois is being removed from Storm Point and Broken Moon and will only be a permanent feature on World’s Edge.

The map’s lighting and sky are also tweaked to some extent. With Season 17’s arrival, you could also see a snowclad Skyhook.
