Rise to new heights in Apex Legends Season 7 on the floating city of Olympus.

There’s a whole new world waiting to be explored. The stakes are higher and the falls are deadlier on Olympus. New Legend Horizon understands the gravity of the situation, and she’s sure to give the other Legends a lift -- whether they want it or not. Plus hop on Olympus’s floating Trident vehicles, grab the latest Battle Pass, ascend to the top of Ranked, and build your community with Clubs.

New Legend: Horizon

Meet Horizon! She’s the newest Legend, a brilliant scientist, and a master of gravity manipulation. She has a deep connection to the new arena, and a motivation that will tug at your heartstrings.

Horizon’s custom space suit allows her to fall from great heights and control her movements in the air. Using her custom technology, she can use gravity lifts to give her team a vertical boost, and she can even deploy NEWT (her small robot named after her son, Newton) to drop a micro black hole that pulls opponents into the center for some serious crowd control.

Passive: Spacewalk

Increase air control and reduce fall impacts with Horizon’s custom spacesuit.

Tactical: Gravity Lift

Reverse the flow of gravity, lifting players upward and boosting them outward when they exit.

Ultimate: Black hole

Deploy NEWT to create a micro black hole that sucks in nearby Legends.

New Map: Olympus

The Legends have entered a new arena: the sky city of Olympus.

A utopia floating in clouds above Psamathe, it was once a place where the brightest minds in the Outlands could gather and exchange ideas. However, an accident in an experimental research facility led to the creation of the Phase Rift (a massive bubble of Phase energy), and the city was abandoned.

Now players can use Olympus’ luxurious amenities to their advantage. Rotating agricultural towers, beautiful gardens and classy restaurants serve as new stages for intense skirmishes. New vehicles called Tridents give your squad a way to boost into battle and take your enemies by surprise. The Phase Runner – a tunnel of Phase energy running through the center of Olympus – lets you cross the map in seconds. And the Rift stands tall over everything, mysterious and beckoning . . .

New Vehicle: The Trident

The Trident is a squad-based, three-seater hover vehicle you can find on the outskirts of Olympus. These were made for large rotations throughout the map, especially in the early game. The Trident comes equipped with a boost feature that for a short time, can increase speed and help you get over obstacles. Try timing your boost with the jump ramps throughout for some serious air time!

These hover vehicles are designed for rotations and not combat, so you will not be able to run over and hurt players. If you choose to use this in combat, there are multiple options for other players to counter this. Arc Stars or Wattson’s fences, for instance, can stall the vehicle for a moment, giving their team time to punish. Since we’re a character-based game, we also wanted the Trident to feel like an extension of the player. For example, you can place certain tacticals onto the Trident itself (front or back). Want to place two Caustic gas barrels on the Trident? Go ahead! Mix and match specific tacticals depending on your playstyle. My favorite tactic is placing Rampart’s Sheila minigun on the back. It’s amazing - trust me.

It’s also worth mentioning that if you accidentally drive the Trident off the map, don’t worry! We have a safety net in place that will launch all players into the sky so you can safely land back onto Olympus. The Trident does not respawn, so please be careful!

Last but certainly not least is the Phase Runner; an industrial sized phase portal connecting three distinct areas of Olympus. This always-on, static portal will phase players to and from specific locations. If the ring is pushing you towards Hydroponics, and you’re stuck with no Trident in sight, hop into the Phase Runner to phase you to the other side of the map. However, be cautious when using these, as you have no clue what’s waiting for you on the other side. Players who are near these will see and hear a warning before other players come out. So be sure to always prepare for combat when using the Phase Runner!
