Respawn has finally listened to its player base and decided to bring back the OG Apex Legends maps.
Apex Legends Legacy Genesis Collection Event was announced just a few minutes ago. Respawn also released a detailed patch note about the upcoming event, map changes, and some quality of life changes.
The Genesis Collection Event starts on June 29, 2021, and will end on July 13th, 2021. This collection event will offer players a chance to earn the Revenant Heirloom by collecting all the event rewards. But we are not here to talk about that instead our main focus today will be the return of the original Kings Canyon and World’s Edge.
Original Kings Canyon and World’s Edge Returns:
During the time of the Genesis Collection Event, the OG maps will be making a comeback. These two maps will be taking over the normal Trios and Duos queues in 1-hour rotations.
The current Kings Canyon varies greatly from when Apex Legends initially released. So the devs thought it was a good idea to bring back the original unaltered map to hit the players with a bit of nostalgia.
World’s Edge will also go back to the original state it came out in when it first released.
Skull Town Added To Arenas:
Apparently, a lot of Apex Legends players were urging Respawn to add Skull Town as an arena map. They finally listened and have done exactly that. The tightly knit buildings of Skull Town will be hectic chaotic and fun as players devise the best strategies to winning Arena matches in this original hotspot.
“Skull Town will be added to the Arenas rotation in one hour increments during the Genesis Collection Event” meaning each day we will have more and more time to enjoy Skull Town in Arenas as the event reaches its end.
