Apex Legends' new battle royale map isn't all "sun and games", despite the tropical setting. Storm Point has a lot of hidden dangers and it looks like it might best Kings Canyon, World's Edge, and Olympus to become the best Apex Legends map yet! Here's everything you need to know about the new map coming to Apex Legends in Season 11: Storm Point.
WILDLIFE NESTS - Storm Point introduces wildlife
If the Apex Games weren't deadly enough, Respawn Entertainment has thrown wildlife into the mixer with Season 11's new map - Storm Point. These deadly creatures are going to need to be dealt with if you want to keep yourself alive - here's what we know so far...
- New map features exclusive to Storm Point;
- Static and finite, meaning they only spawn in certain locations per game;
- Boundary-based, meaning wildlife should only attack when nearby;
- Prowlers - aggressive, pack-based hunters;
- Spiders - quick, agile, with a ranged attack;
- Flyers - Independent and peaceful, until provoked;
Storm Point is going to be one of the best maps we've seen so far and there's a lot to look forward to when Season 11 drops next week.
GAMEPLAY - New dangers to be revealed later today
Respawn Entertainment's Season 11 gameplay trailer is hours away and we're going to get our first proper look at the new Apex Legends map soon. From the teasers that are popping up, it looks like "Storm Point" is going to be dangerous in more ways than one.
We haven't seen an Apex Legends map with actual wildlife before, but it looks like that's about to change with the new Season 11 map. As you can see below, there's going to be some beasts to contend with alongside the other Legends in the lobby.
The Season 11 gameplay trailer is due to drop at the following times - we should learn everything we need to know then...
- 08:00 October 25th PST
- 11:00 October 25th EST
- 16:00 October 25th BST
CINEMATIC - "Storm Point" officially announced
Following the Season 11 launch trailer, Respawn Entertainment has officially revealed "Storm Point" as the newest Apex Legends map! You can check out the trailer for yourself below, but here's what we know...
" A STORM IS BREWING
No matter how beautiful it seems, every corner of the Outlands is a dangerous place. You'd be wise to remember that."
We're going to get more information on October 25th - along with a gameplay trailer. Keep your eyes peeled!
Everything we know about the new map so far...
Officially, we don't know a lot about the new map expected to debut in Season 11. Unofficially, we know a little bit...
The new map has been referred to as "Tropics" for quite some time by Apex Legends data miners and leakers - it's going to feature strange plants and sunny sands in a location that should fit perfectly in the varied selection of Apex Legends maps.
GarretLeaks has shared the following, confirming that vehicles will be appearing in some capacity on the new Season 11 map.
In addition to this, it's rumoured that this new map will be located on Gaea - the home planet of Rampart, Crypto, and Caustic. This would suggest that we're going to get a little more exploration into these Legends' backstories - It'll be interesting to see where Ash fits into all of this.
When does Season 11 start & when will we find out more?
Apex Legends' Season 11 update is a little way out - however, the Season 11 launch trailer is due to drop in a matter of hours. As you can see in the YouTube Premiere below, the Season 11 launch trailer is expected to drop at the following times:
- 08:00 October 21st PST
- 11:00 October 21st EST
- 16:00 October 21st BST
Everything is pointing towards the reveal of the new map and we should see it arrive at some point in Season 11 - it might not be available at launch, but Respawn Entertainment always finds a way of integrating content with the lore of Apex Legends. So... Maybe it will feature in a mid-season Collection Event alongside that pesky Wattson Heirloom...
