The developers gave a peek at the new map called ‘Olympus’. It is filled with aesthetically enriched greenery amidst high-rise buildings. The new map is almost the exact opposite of the previous one. The desert and the debris are no more.

To fit right into the map, Apex also revealed the new Legend, Horizon, in the trailer. She is a brilliant astrophysicist who escaped a black hole and aims to use her newfound mastery of gravity to keep a promise.

From her accent, she sounds Scottish and has that Scotswoman charm about her as well. The trailer also gave fans a first look at her ultimate ability. Horizon can start a tornado that defies gravity and throws any players in its range into the air for a short while.

Finally, to navigate such a large map, Apex has also added a new vehicle for the trios. Matching the theme of three, the vehicle is called ‘Trident’. A person can drive the vehicle while the other two can board it and fire at enemies. Players can also explode the trident by shooting at it, throwing explosives, or just crashing it.

A vehicle is definitely going to be a welcome addition, as it will severely increase the pace of the game.
