Apex Legends vehicles will be arriving as part of the game's next season. Apex Legends Season 7 will finally let players get a little more mobile on the all-new Olympusf map. Best of all, the new Legend "Horizon" is on the way, too!
There have been six seasons of Apex Legends content ever since the game surprisingly launched in February 2019. One feature this Battle Royale game has been missing is vehicles, but that's about to change with the start of Season 7.
Apex Legends Vehicles Debut with the Trident
The preview web page for Apex Legends Season 7 asks if players can rise to the challenge — and it looks like the Trident will help you do just that.
From what we can tell, the Trident will be the first of what will hopefully be many more Apex Legends vehicles. The only image shown thus far appears to show a pilot's seat at the top and an additional seat on the side. Presumably, another seat is available on the opposite side as the vehicle is said to be capable of carrying an entire squad.
There is a lot that we don't know about these Apex Legends vehicles. Going by what we've seen in other Battle Royale games, it's likely that it can be destroyed somehow. I imagine that blowing up a Trident full of enemy Legends would kill them all. We'll likely find out more details as we get closer to the start of the next season.
New Apex Legends Olympus Map is 'a Big Place'
Also revealed today is the new Apex Legends Olympus Map. As with the first Apex Legends vehicle, we've only gotten a low-detail teaser image for the Season 7 web page. However, this location was first shown off 8 months ago for the debut of Season 4.
Olympus is a massive city on the planet Psamathe. This city is home to Lifeline, Octane, and the new Legend Horizon — and the teaser page says that it's a big place. The teaser page also notes that "it's a long way down to the planet below," implying that players may be playing in the upper levels of one or more skyscrapers with the fall to the ground serving as a hazard.
Apex Legends New Legend Horizon Masters Gravity
As with previous seasons, a new Legend is making her debut for Season 7. Horizon will be the latest hero to join this cast of characters and she has a particular penchant for manipulating gravity.
We don't yet know much about her abilities, but players can get a sense of her character by checking out the latest episode of Stories from the Outlands.
When is the Apex Legends Season 7 Release Date?
The Apex Legends Season 7 release date will be November 4, 2020. Incidentally, that also happens to be the same day that the game is making its debut on Steam. As previously noted, players who jump onto this new digital storefront will unlock some special Valve-themed gun charms.
It's just a bit over a week until the next great season of Apex Legends begins! For now, you can add Apex Legends to your wishlist on Steam; all of your progress from Origin will carry over to the new platform. You'll be able to play it for free on that platform and enjoy all of the new Season 7 content starting on November 4, 2020.
