When are World’s Edge and Kings Canyon coming back to Apex Legends?

With the arrival of Olympus in Season 7, Apex Legends has removed both Kings Canyon and World’s Edge from the rotation, but there’s no need to worry as both maps will eventually be returning.

We all know and love Kings Canyon, which had been host to the Apex Games since release in 2019. World’s Edge came out a bit later – at the start of Season 3 – but both have now been removed by Respawn.

With the start of Season 7, the new map Olympus will be the only one we can play on before the other two are eventually brought back.  Below is all the info we currently have on when World’s Edge and Kings Canyon will be coming back to Apex Legends.

World’s Edge won’t be gone from Apex for long.

According to the Season 7 patch notes, World’s Edge will only be taking a two-week break from the game. Given that Ascension kicked off on Nov. 4, that means it should be coming back around Nov. 18.

After that week the game will go into a normal rotation between Olympus and the Talos outpost once players start to get the hang of the new map. The second half of Season 7 ranked, starting at the same time, will also be played entirely on World’s Edge.

Good old King’s Canyon will be heading to the vault for Season 7.

Devs haven’t provided an exact date yet for when we could expect to see this map return to Apex, and only said that they “will be vaulting Kings Canyon for the time being,” to start Season 7.

While we don’t have an exact timetable, Respawn also temporarily removed the original region for the entirety of Season 3 when World’s Edge was first released and brought it back as part of the ranked rotation in Season 4.

We can’t say for certain exactly when we’ll be able to drop into King’s Canyon again, but we wouldn’t get our hopes up to see it return to the lineup before Season 8.

Apex Legends Horizon actor reveals bizarre way she helped make Season 7

The voice actor behind Apex Legends’ newest character, Horizon, has revealed the bizarre conditions in which she provided the voice, and it’s crazy to see where our favorite Scot came from.

Horizon was introduced to Apex Legends in Season 7, bringing a new set of abilities to the game, alongside new map Olympus.

The Gravitational Manipulator has been an instant hit with fans, so much so that we actually ranked her as one of the best legends in the game in our Season 7 tier list, behind only Wraith, Gibraltar and Bloodhound.

So, for such a fantastic character, Apex fans might expect a large-budget, Hollywood-esque production to get her voice lines and general character perfect… but that wasn’t the case.

Horizon has been an instant hit in Apex Legends.

Season 7 launched on November 4, 2020, and after letting the dust settle a bit, Horizon voice actor Elle Newlands shared a brilliant video from when she was recording for the character.

Clearly excited, this is about as 2020 as it gets, as Newlands was confined to a tiny closet to get her work done.

“I had to capture this for posterity,” she started excitedly. “I just stepped out of my closet, it’s July 17, I’m in Los Angeles in a 2-foot by 3-foot closet where I have my little recording booth, and I just recorded facial recognition and voiceover for Season 7 of Apex Legends, and I’m the voice of Horizon… Aah!”

Clarifying that it was for the Season 7 trailer, Elle said she is “so excited” to be in the game, calling the fact that she’s doing it all from home “amazing.”

It goes without saying that it is amazing what Elle and the wider Respawn crew have managed to pull off, in her own words, to “keep the entertainment flowing” despite all the issues the world has been facing in 2020.

If this can be done in a 2x3ft closet in someone’s home, we can’t imagine the possibilities for characters in the future of Apex.
