For those unaware of what’s coming November 2, Apex Legends: Escape is looking to be the biggest update to the game yet. The entirely new map - Storm Point - takes place on a Caribbean-esque island covered in towering mountains and surrounded by serene beaches. Storm Point is set to be the largest map yet, replacing the much beloved Jump Towers with electronic catapults that shoot players across a vast distance.
Lets not forget the new C.A.R SMG! This new machine gun is special due to its use of both light and heavy ammo, making it a versatile tool for players gearing up at the start of a match. Whether it can topple beloved guns like the Prowler or the amazing R-99.
Then there’s Ash, the newest Legend to join the roster who comes packing powerful abilities like the Arc Snare, a binding projectile that holds enemies in place while you shoot at them. Alongside this robotic recruit comes a vast number of balance changes that can be read in full on the Apex Legends official website.
