Maps

From Apex Legends Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

There are three maps in Apex Legends: Kings Canyon, introduced at launch; World's Edge, added in Season 3.svg Season 3; and Olympus, added in Season 7.svg Season 7.

At the start of each season, either a new map will be added, or one of the current maps will receive a map update (MU).

Minor map changes, called town takeovers (TT), occur sparingly and they come with events. Town takeovers are modeled after a Legend.

Although there are three maps, only two are available per season and they rotate between each other. For Trios and Duos, the maps rotate once every 60, 90, or 120 minutes (current schedule). For Ranked Leagues, the maps rotate between the two splits. When a new map or map update comes out at the start of a new season, that map will be in rotation for Trios and Duos for one or two weeks to allow players to get used to it; it will also be the map for the first ranked split. When a map receives a new town takeover, that map will be in rotation for Trios and Duos for two days.
