Apex Legends, and getting trapped inside it might be one of his worst, but most hilarious, experiences on the game yet. 

The popular variety Twitch streamer has been rotating between games for quite some time, claiming that he’s frustrated with the current offerings from developers, yet decided to come back to Apex Legends following the Voidwalker update on September 3.

This new patch introduced a whole new revamped Town Takeover section, bringing in a huge portal that can be entered as soon as you drop into the match, taking players to the Singh Labs area. Though, it’s fair to say that the Doc didn’t have the most successful of outings when he gave it a try.

Teaming up with LyndonFPS, the Two-Time entered the portal right from the start of the game on a number of occasions during his September 3 broadcast on Twitch.

As he jumped in, a portal appeared underneath his head on screen, his latest move to improve his production value on the platform, something many fans believe he’s the best at.

He said: “Alright let’s do it,” he said, unleashing a loud scream before reaching the bottom. “I can’t see anything! I’m trapped! I’m trapped.” 

As soon as he reached the ground, the players were hit with a Caustic Nox Gas Trap, meaning that they couldn’t really see what was going on around them. Just moments later, an enemy player knocked out both of the players in quick succession.

Of course, this wasn’t the only time that Dr Disrespect jumped inside the new portal. In fact, there were countless games where he tried it out and picked up a few kills, but his reaction to the animation was priceless each and every time.

After debuting the newest Stories from the Outlands short on October 26, Respawn Entertainment has officially revealed Apex Season 7, with the confirmation of a new map, Olympus, and Horizon as the new Legend. 

At long last, Apex Legends is finally getting a brand new map. After being theorized and rumored for months now, Respawn has finally confirmed that fans will be able to drop into Olympus when Season 7 launches.

In addition to the new map, fans will of course be able to utilize a new Legend named Horizon, which at this point everyone expected. There’s been no official confirmation as to what Horizon’s abilities will be, however.

New Map: Olympus

Unfortunately, details about Olympus are sparse right now. The description for the new map reads: “Ascend to a beautiful, lush city in the clouds. Just watch your step — it’s a long way down to the planet below.”

In addition, we also have one small look at the map itself in the form of an image released on the Apex Legends website. It’s a bit hard to make out but fans can clearly see two large tower-like structures, along with an egg-shaped building in the background.

New Legend: Horizon

We’ve expected Horizon for some time since she was teased in Firing Range but now she’s been officially confirmed for Season 7.

The new Stories from The Outlands video reveals her backstory, although it does little to show off how she’ll actually play.

As previously mentioned, there’s been no official confirmation about her abilities, however, her description states that she uses “her newfound mastery of gravity”, which lines up perfectly with the previous leaks for the character, which revealed that uses black holes and gravity lifts to fight other Legends.

New travel mechanic: The Trident

Respawn also revealed something called The Trident and hinted that it was a different way to travel through the new Olympus map but didn’t provide any other details.

Could this be a new fast-travel mechanic or simply a new vehicle allowing players to get around faster? We’ll just have to wait and see. The developer’s official description reads: “Olympus is a big place. Cover ground faster with the Trident. Plenty of room for the whole squad!”

Season 7 Ranked

Respawn also shared some details about the game’s ranked play for Season 7, including the confirmation that because Olympus will be added to the game, the King’s Canyon map will be removed for now.

While the developer said that there wouldn’t be any major changes for the new season, they have been testing crossplay in Season 6 with a beta period, and will judge the impact of that after the fact.

Clubs

The devs are finally introducing the previously leaked Clubs feature too. There are no exact details on how this feature will work just yet. The description reads: “Find like-minded players, build a community, and Rise Together.

If previous leaks are to be presumed, then this will work similarly to a clan or guild. You’ll be able to bring together other players in order to more easily find people of similar play-styles, although this has yet to be confirmed.

Apex Legends Season 7 is set to launch on November 4, 2020, which is a week earlier than originally expected.
