Respawn revealed the big news that a new map named World’s Edge was coming to the battle royale. The map’s landscape varies, with part of it covered in snow and icicles, while the other part featuring geysers and molten lava.

Gameplay footage also revealed players fighting on a moving train in the middle of World’s Edge. Although little is known about the train, the footage hints that players will be able to catapult and zipline onto the moving train, open supply bins, and knock each other off of it.

Crypto will also finally make his Apex debut. A first look into the hacker’s abilities showed his aerial drone scouting players from the sky, as well as being able to explode with an electromagnetic pulse that destroys any defensive shields from legends’ abilities.

The Charge Rifle, a new gun that packs an electrified punch, will also launch with season three, along with new skins, a new Battle Pass, and Ranked Series two.
