Leaked Apex Legends Season 2 trailer reveals major map changes

Respawn Entertainment’s big reveal for Apex Legends Season 2 has been spoiled somewhat as leakers posted two official trailers ahead of its launch, revealing some unexpected events that could soon send shockwaves right through the map.       

The leaked cinematic and gameplay trailers show off the new legend for Season 2, Wattson, but what’s perhaps even more exciting is the massive changes coming to the arena – or Kings Canyon. 

As the narration tells us, a large EMP has detonated and will destroy the Repuslor tower, with the voiceover stating: “Kings Canyon will never be the same”.

The Leviathans have physically invaded the map space now, and the pesky flyers are still there, with some appearing to be locked away in cages in different areas of the arena. 

The muddy areas have been transformed, or “stabilized, allowing them to regrow”, so are now lush with greenery.

And, of course, there are new structures. A large tower-like building with multiple entrances has emerged and is shown off in the trailer, which you can see below.

Some of these changes were expected. After all, players have known about the Leviathan’s upcoming invasion since Respawn revealed their first Season 2 trailer released at EA Play, not to mention the clues spotted in the Season 1 trailer as well. 

It’s unclear if any of these new areas will become ‘named’ points of interest on the map, but we’d be surprised if there wasn’t some update names for certain locations.

Whether or not players will be able to interact with the Leviathans to a large degree remains uncertain, but one shot in the trailer does show one stamp its foot down – and you certainly don’t want to be underneath it when it does that.

As more information is revealed out about the map changes, and everything else Season 2 related, we’ll keep you updated.
