Apex Legends Season 3 Takes the Arena to a Whole New Planet in Latest Trailer

Apex Legends Season 3 Takes the Arena to a Whole New Planet in Latest Trailer

Apex Legends Season 3 brings with it the first new map for Respawn's hit game.

Apex Legends Season 3 is quickly shaping up to be the most interesting season the team at Respawn Entertainment has put out. Crypto continues to look awesome and there’s some hope that they’ve ironed out the kinks of the battle pass in this third iteration. However, today marked the most exciting thing they’ve announced for the upcoming season. As revealed in a new trailer, the arena is moving to its first new map. Check it out below.

The new world looks way more diverse than the current map. When the characters drop, you see this massive crystal structure rising from a snowy terrain. Then the next shot is Wattson landing in a volcanic area. The map is called Meltdown, and Respawn describes it as a land “forged in fire and ice.” It’s apparent from the trailer that they want to make the new map much more colorful than the first one. That “fire and ice” theme pops up constantly and makes the different biomes stand out from each other.

Later in the trailer, we see Crypto and Mirage teaming up on a moving train. Hopefully, this isn’t just for the trailer, as a constantly looping vehicle sounds like a fun addition to Apex. It gives you a way to either make a quick escape or drop in on someone at a speed they might not expect. While on the train, we also see the new charge rifle in action. It looks like it will deadly in the right hands though I’ll probably struggle to use it effectively if my history with charging weapons is any kind of barometer.

We only have a few short days until Season 3 officially drops. You can hop in and buy the new Battle Pass for Apex Legends on October 1.
