With the arrival of Season 8’s trailer featuring new agent Fuse, players got a look at a revamped Kings Canyon. Apex Legends previously removed both Kings Canyon and World’s Edge from the rotation, but with World’s Edge now back in play, Kings Canyon looks like it’s also slated for an explosive return.
We all know and love Kings Canyon, which had been host to the Apex Games since its release in 2019. World’s Edge came out a bit later – at the start of Season 3 – but Kings Canyon is now due to return, if the Fuse reveal trailer that dropped on January 21, 2020 is anything to go by.
With the start of Season 7, Olympus was the only one we could play on before World’s Edge came back. With the current season almost at a close, here’s all the info we currently have on when Kings Canyon will be coming back to Apex Legends and what it could look like.
When is Kings Canyon coming back to Apex?
Previously, devs hadn’t provided an exact date for when we could expect to see this map return to Apex, but the reveal of Season 8 gave us a concrete release date of February 2, 2021.
What will Kings Canyon look like in Season 8?
With season 8’s reveal, we were treated to a look at the OG map once more. In a celebratory opening to the trailer, we see NPC citizens all excited for the reveal of Fuse. From this, though, an unknown character called Maggie turns on the event, sending Agents such as Bloodhound, Lifeline, and Fuse himself, scattering to help save the epic map and the citizens spectating.
Explosions set off all over the map, giving it a huge facelift. As the rubble settles, a destroyed, flame-ridden Kings Canyon emerges.
Though this is currently the only look we have at what to expect for the map in the new season, but sure to check back often, as we will continually update you on further information received.
