Apex Legends Season 7 – Ascension overview
Season 7 – Ascension brings a new free-to-play map, a new Legend, and community features. In particular, Ascension is taking the game to Steam as well.
There’s already a cinematic trailer on YouTube that certainly got my attention. As always, Apex’s characters are fun to watch.
The clip showcases the new Legend, Horizon. She appears to be a tech-heavy character, a “field researcher” with skills related to her gadgets.
Also, we got to see the new map, Olympus, alongside a new feature that includes driving vehicles around the arena.
Here’s the reveal trailer:
As you’d expect, Apex Legends- Season 7 comes with a Battle Pass that includes over 100 game items (cosmetics, Legendary Aspects,…)
Horizon – The new Legend
Respawn confirmed Horizon as the upcoming Season 7 Legend. The developers explain she is an astrophysicist who travels across the universe to stop a dangerous energy crisis.
We learned her origin story on Horizon’s reveal trailer.
We’re yet to see Horizon’s abilities and kit. Still, there’s a couple of leaks hinting at the following skills:
- Passive: Soft Landing
- Tactical: Repulsor / Gravity Lift
- Ultimate: Black Hole
Olympus maps and vehicles
Long-rumored Olympus becomes the new planet available on Apex Legends as the new map. Season 5’s quests were already hinting at the location anyhow.
The description states Olympus is “a beautiful lush city in the clouds.”
Additionally, players will be able to drive vehicles around the new map. The Trident vehicle has space for a complete squad. We don’t know how it will work, though: it might move between locations automatically, or you might have to drive the thing.
We do know the Trident will help players navigate the entire map easily. In that regard, Olympus is going to be the biggest map of the game.
As far as weapons go, there’re plenty of leaks regarding what to expect. Unfortunately, Respawn hasn’t confirmed anything.
Yet, leaks are suggesting a new weapon category -Gadgets – is coming to Apex Legends Season 7. These may be utility items like smoke grenades, flashbangs, or stun grenades.

Apex Legends reaching Steam is a big step forward for the EA-distributed title. It grants the game all of the community features of Valve’s storefront. Moreover, you can carry over your profile from EA towards Steam.
Besides, there’s going to be a Club feature that allows you to make friends on similar ranks. It’s an easier way to find squad members to play with.
Similarly, there’s going to be a new ranking board for Season 7.
