One of the massive adjustments for Apex Legends‘ new season, Legacy, is a map update for Olympus – now that I’ve truly spelled it out within the headline, although, it doesn’t truly sound that large, does it? Maybe that’s for the very best, as developer Respawn works to slowly see how these Olympus enhancements have an effect on gamers, and they may inform some broader adjustments throughout the sport to deal with third-partying.

The large addition to Olympus is a new POI: the Icarus. It’s a ship that’s now docked with Olympus, between Bonsai Plaza, Solar Array, and Orbital Cannon. It – and the enormous, parasitic plant that it’s launched to the map – breaks up the sight traces to assist hold the map from being so sniper-dominated, and the ship’s interiors present alternatives for extra close-quarters battles.

The redeploy balloons exterior of Golden Gardens and Orbital Cannon are getting eliminated, too, in an effort to push again on third-partying. You can get the complete particulars on the design reasoning behind these removals on the official blog, however the quick model is that Tridents had been at all times meant to make Olympus’s redeploy balloons redundant, and the devs really feel that they’ve confirmed profitable sufficient to begin eradicating these balloons totally.

“Going forward, expect us to take a look at other areas of Olympus (and other maps) to address how redeploy balloons contribute to third-partying.”
