It has been confirmed by Respawn Entertainment that all three of Apex Legends’ maps will feature in the quickplay rotation next season.
The fact that these maps will feature in the quick play rotation means that players will be able to switch between the three maps for the first time since Olympus has launched.
Olympus is Apex’s third map which we saw added back in Season 7, this addition meant that Respawn had to get rid of one map each season.
Players will need to wait around a week before they will be able to get a slice of the action and dive into all three maps together.
Although, fans will be pleased to know that World’s Edge will be awarded exclusivity for one week giving all players the chance to give it a whirl at the map update when Emergence drops.
After the week comes to a close, players will then be able to fully experience all three maps depending on what’s available.
The rigid map pool in Apex’s Ranked mode won’t be affected by any changes to the casual playlist, between August 3 and September 21 is when the first split will take shape.
Matches will also occur in Kings Canyon with Olympus out of the selection for the for seeable in the second half of the competitive season.
There has also been some small changes made to maps in Arenas for Emergence, the Arena exclusive maps will still remain in the rotation however there will be an additional three new locations from battle royale maps that will enter the mode.
These locations will include Olympus’s Oasis, Kings Canyons Hillside and the Dome in World’s Edge that will host matches in both the competitive Arenas and casual.
