Developers Respawn Entertainment have revealed a brand new map for Apex Legends called World’s Edge ahead of the launch of Season 3: Meltdown.

With Season 3 set to launch on October 1 in Apex Legends, Respawn gave their player-base something else to also be very excited about – a brand new map.

World’s Edge is located on a different planet called Talos, where, according to the official description, is where “molten heat and chemical ice collide.”

The map was introduced in the latest Season 3 launch trailer, which features a cast of Legends, including Crypto – the newest character that will make his debut in Meltdown.

In the trailer, included below, the Legends are shown being “whisked from” the familiar terrain of King’s Canyon on a Dropship, and taken to an icy location, where a battle between them ensues. 

At first glance, that description actually makes perfect sense, as the map is shown to have both a snowy terrain full of ice-capped hills and mountains, and what appears to be an active volcano that is likely to play some role in how the map works.

Located in the middle is some sort of facility or plant that looks to have once been used to refine or produce a chemical, but an apparent explosion that is now frozen in place has the whole thing looking quite incredible.

In addition to introducing the new map, this launch trailer also displays several other things that will be novelties in the game once Season 3 kicks off.

For one, Crypto can be seen in a way that he’s never been shown before, including a glimpse at what could be some of his Abilities. 

Also, the brand new Charge Rifle weapon is also given a glimpse of, and it certainly fits its description of being an “obliterating directed-energy weapon.”

Of course, while the prospect of a new map in Apex Legends is certainly a hypnotizing one, the fact that Respawn are releasing one shouldn’t really come as a surprise to anyone, as the developers had been strongly hinting at it for quite a while now.

A plethora of clues had been dropped in the days leading up to this announcement, including an early glimpse of the snowy terrain, and even revealing when they would make the news public ahead of time


Players will be able to enjoy World’s Edge, and everything else Season 3: Meltdown has to offer, come October 1. For full details on the new season, make sure to visit our Meltdown info hub

Apex Legends leaker claims Heirloom weapon skins are coming

An Apex Legends leaker has claimed that Respawn are planning to add a new tier of weapons skins for guns, at the same rarity as Heirlooms.

There is plenty of choice for players when it comes to customizing their favorite Apex Legends characters or weapons, and Respawn are always releasing new cosmetic items to keep the game fresh.

The cosmetics for characters and weapons are divided into classes, based on how rare they can be to find, and new leaks are suggesting that some more ultra-rare items could be coming.

Heirloom weapon skins?

The Heirloom melee weapons for certain characters are the rarest items that can be unlocked in Apex Legends and, typically, there is only one of them released for a single Legend, each season.

However, while melee weapons are the only type of Heirloom cosmetics currently available, Apex leaker “SomeoneWhoLeaks” has revealed that ranged Heirloom skins for the different guns in-game might be next.

The leaker revealed that the rumor apparently stemmed from an investor inside EA before reminding Apex Legends fans that it has still yet to be confirmed by Respawn.

“Rumor has it that heirloom weapon skins are coming,” they explained, “this comes from some investors in EA, so take it with a grain of salt.”

The Apex leaker added that these would simply be released as ranged weapon skins but was unsure if they would be released through Heirloom Shards, similarly to the melee weapons that have already been released.

They also revealed that the timeline for when these potential Heirloom skins are coming is still unclear, which makes it unlikely that we will see them for the start of Season 7 on November 4.

While little has been revealed about these ultra-rare weapon skins, it is worth noting that nothing is set in stone and we won’t know for sure until Respawn officially release the rumored cosmetics.

SomeoneWhoLeaks has previously leaked Bangalore’s weapon heirloom, although we’re still to see this arrive in-game.
