Respawn has announced the details for Apex Legends Season 7, and it is called Ascension. The new season will add a brand new hero called Horizon and she will be able to manipulate gravity after a run in with a black hole. Alongside Horizon there will be a new map and that map is Olympus. Olympus is a city in the clouds floating above the planet so one misstep will see you falling from the city right down to the planet surface, and you likely will not survive that.
The description for the new Stories from the Outlands short reads:
“Nearly a century ago, Dr. Mary Somers was hired to solve a cataclysmic energy crisis. Her search for answers would take her to the edge of the universe. Before Mary left Olympus, she promised her son she’d return. But was it a promise she’d be able to keep?”
The new character and the new map are just two of the things that will be added. The third item will be the vehicle called the Trident. The Trident will be able to transport a full squad quickly across Olympus, cutting down that travel time. Respawn will also be adding a Club system so player can group together to build their own communities. There will be a new battle pass for Ascension with 100 items, a new season of Ranked, and the release on Steam too.
