The next teaser in Apex Legends has landed, or rather is getting ready to take off, as a new Season 6 clue has appeared on World’s Edge.

Apex players received the first glimpse of what looks to be a part of a larger rocket on July 30. Although it’s far from complete, the teaser is already fueling speculation for what it could mean for the Legends who could be departing for Psmathe.

The teaser is located at the Sorting Factory that lies south of the Fuel Depot and west of Lava City. A hard-to-miss crane with an orange base has appeared on the south side of the high tier loot location carrying an enormous piece of machinery.

While it doesn’t look like much, with what we already know of the Apex story, this could be the first look at the next major vessel of the upcoming season.

We already know that Loba’s mission to finally kill Revenant is going to take her to Psmathe. The planet has already been mentioned in passing since it’s the homeworld of Mirage and Lifeline, but we still haven’t gotten a good look at it.

This faraway land houses Olympus, a city in the skies from the sound of it, which could be the third location of the Apex Games, following Kings Canyon and World’s Edge.

But our cast of characters are going to need a way to get there. The first time that Respawn introduced a new map in Season 3, the studio tweeted out the head of the dropship peering out through a heavily clouded sky.

Fast-forward three more seasons, Respawn could be using World’s Edge as the platform to launch us into the next location they have in mind for the battle royale. If this new crane is indeed carrying the base of a rocket ship, then that’s likely the vehicle that the characters will use to visit Olympus.

Other possibilities could include some sort of development with Hammond Robotics’ technological hold on W.E. This could be another step forward in the mysterious intentions of the company, since the first batch of teasers might have suggested an expanded presence and updates to the Arena.

In either case, there are still four more phases of clues that are scheduled to come out in Respawn’s game within the next couple of weeks, so we’ll be finding out a lot more very soon. Make sure to check out our Apex Legends Season 6 hub for all of the teasers so far and what they could mean.

Apex Legends Season 8 launch trailer reveals Fuse abilities and destroyed Kings Canyon

Respawn Entertainment have given a first look at the new Legend Fuse and his abilities in action, plus the obliteration of Kings Canyon, in the Apex Legends Season 8 Launch trailer.

Fuse, real name Walter Fitzroy is the eighth post-launch Legend to join the Apex games, bringing the total to 16 – double what the game had at launch.

As his name implies, his abilities are all about explosives, and he’s a blow-it-up-first, ask questions later, type character. Hailing from Salvo – a new planet we’ve only just found out about – he’s also bringing a new weapon with him, the 30-30 repeater.

The launch trailer, released on January 21, gives us our first look at two key parts of the upcoming season: Fuse’s ability kit, and the new-look Kings Canyon.

Fuse abilities in Apex Legends

Although not completely explained, this trailer gives us a look at Fuse using his abilities, which he’ll have in the Apex games.

His ultimate, which was already teased in-game, sees him drop a mortar-like bomb, which then explodes into flames, damaging anyone nearby.

We can also see him launch grenades from his arm, which will be his tactical ability.

Kings Canyon

Salvo’s unification with the Syndicate was meant to be a joyous occasion, but Fuse’s old friends are certainly not happy about – and decided to crash the party.

This has left Kings Canyon in ruins – ready for a new Season of massive map changes. Respawn have become experts at weaving the game’s lore into actual gameplay, and this is just another example of that.

In the trailer, it appears that Artillery and Slum Lakes have both been destroyed, but we may have to wait until the gameplay trailer to see the full extent of the damage.

Season 8 launches on consoles, PC, and possibly Nintendo Switch, on February 2.
