Apex Legends Season 7 is the biggest one yet! It’s got a new legend, new map, and a whole load more changes. Read everything you need to know below:
Apex Legends Season 7 Introduces Horizon
First and foremost, Apex Legends Season 7 is bringing a new playable legend to the playing field. Horizon is described as “a brilliant scientist, and a master of gravity manipulation… [with] a motivation that will tug at your heartstrings.”
Horizon’s wearing a custom space suit that gives her improved control while mid-air and protection from high falls. She has custom, gravity technology that can help add a vertical advantage (or disadvantage) to any fight. Topping it all off, Horizon also has a small robot that can be deployed to aid in crowd control. What’s better yet is that it’s named after her son, Newton!
Increase air control and reduce fall impacts.
Tactical: Gravity Lift
Reverse the flow of gravity, lifting players upwards and boosting them outwards when they exit.
Ultimate: Black Hole
Deploy NEWT to create a micro black hole that sucks in nearby Legends.
Apex Legends Season 7 Has A New Stomping Ground
The Sky City of Olympus is the latest map that’s been added to Apex Legends with Season 7. Below is the official description, which will shed some light on what players can expect when they drop in:
” 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 . . .
The Trident Is A New Vehicle Exclusive To Olympus
Apex Legends may have pioneered the Loot Train, but did it really need vehicles? Apparently so. The Trident has arrived alongside the Season 7 update to give Apex players a taste of the game with cars.
What makes the Trident interesting is how it will play in-game. It’s big enough for your whole squad and you either drive in third-person, or sit as a passenger in first-person. However, all damage the Trident takes will be evenly distrubuted amongst the players. The vehicle itself won’t explode, but it could lead to spectacular team-wipes if you’re not careful.
Each Legend’ ability will interact with the Trident in a variety of ways, so it’s definitely worth experimenting with these to find what strategies are hidden in there.
Clubs Are Coming To Apex Legends, Finally
Clubs are Apex Legends answer to Clans, Leagues, Regiments… Whatever you want to call it. Essentially, you can join or create a Club to find like-minded players to squad up with. If you haven’t got anyone with you and you want to drop, Clubs are a great way of searching for players.
Club names have to be 16 characters and unique, with a 4-character tag being visible next to your in-game name when you play. There’s also some degree of logo creation and various privacy settings. It all seems pretty straightforward. The Club is linked to the owner and the data centre they were on when it was made. So, the Ping shouldn’t be too bad. There’s also full control over crossplay options and a series of ranks for you to fit in to.
Clubs seem like a great way to introduce grassroots competitive gaming to Apex Legends and, with any luck, will only improve players’ experiences in game.

Season 7 Is Changing Battle Pass Challenges
Much like previous seasons, Apex Legends‘ battle pass is offering a number of cosmetic bonuses to players throughout the season. As long as they can level up enough, anyway!
However, one thing is changing… The Challenge system. Rather than being point-based, the Challenges will now be Star-based.
Each Challenge will be listed as valued between 1 and 5 Stars. Collect 10 and you’re moving up a Battle Pass tier. It’s fairly simple and should hopefully help players figure out how much work they need to do to move up the battle pass.
There’s also a tab in the lobby that should make it easier for these to find. It might seem like a little more of a grind at first, but It should mean that there’s a lot more opportunity to tier up throughout the season.
Finally, Apex Legends Is On Steam!
Yep, you read that right. You can now play Apex on Steam. If you already have an Origin account, you’ll need to log in with that and all your progress should carry over.
In addition to this, you can get a few cosmetic bonuses for logging into Apex Legends from Steam. Check out what you can get in the image below:
