The launch of the next chapter of Apex Legends is only days away, and Respawn Entertainment has finally unveiled the first official details on Season 7. Anticipation had been surging in the community for a while, and the battle royale’s seventh season, dubbed Ascension, is going to be the biggest one yet.

The upcoming chapter will introduce a range of content to the game, most notably a brand new map, the next Legend, and even an innovative vehicle. Apex’s Season 7 page previews the exciting features players will experience during Ascension and beyond.

A large map, a new vehicle, and the next character confirmed for Apex Legends Season 7

For starters, the addition of a brand new map in the form of Olympus is perhaps the most significant change Ascension will bring. Olympus is a beautiful, lush city floating in the clouds above the planet Psamathe. Players might have to watch their step because the city’s height implies a long way down to the planet below.

Since Olympus is a large map, it will also feature the Trident vehicle to help players navigate faster. Not only will this new vehicle help cover ground faster, but it will also have plenty of room for the entire squad to ride together. While the Trident’s debut might come as a surprise for many, the prospect of having a drivable vehicle in Apex Legends is amazing.

Meanwhile, Respawn has confirmed Dr. Mary Somers, aka Horizon, will join the Apex Games as the Season 7 legend. Horizon is the first Scottish legend in Apex and Respawn teased the character in-game and on Twitter. The latest Stories from the Outlands video shows Horizon’s touching backstory. She is a brilliant astrophysicist who escaped a black hole. Having unraveled the mastery of gravity, it is likely that’s where the powers of Horizon’s ability kit will lie.
