Escape introduces Storm Point, the game’s fourth and largest map to date, Ash, the deadly simulacrum Legend, the C.A.R. SMG, a fan favorite weapon from Titanfall and much more for a trip the competitors in the Apex Games won’t forget. We’ve included a snapshot of some of the exciting content arriving in Apex Legends: Escape below and for additional details including balance updates, ranked changes, etc. please visit the official Apex Legends blog here.
• New Map - Storm Point: Storm Point looks enticing, but the pristine beaches and crystal waters are just the eye of the hurricane. Teeming with wild Prowlers and a new kind of enemy swarm— venomous spiders—the gathering storms only adds to the tension in the air. Legends have arrived and will find new ways to travel across the map’s diverse POIs which include island clusters, jungle compounds and a base embedded within a giant mountain marking the highest location in any Apex Legends map to date. To learn about everything Storm Point has to offer visit the deep dive blog on Storm Point from Designer, Rodney Reese here.
• New Legend - Ash: A simulacrum made from the woman who once was Dr. Ashleigh Reid, Ash detects death wherever she goes, spearing enemies with electric snares that lock them in place, tearing through space to take more lives. It would be easy to think that there was nothing human left within that cold steel.
• New Weapon - CAR SMG: A fantastic and ferocious weapon, the C.A.R. SMG is capable of firing both Light and Heavy ammo. The Combat Advanced Round submachine gun is fully automatic and delivers a fair amount of recoil - as some players might have experienced in other parts of the Titanfall universe.
• Battle Pass - Survive in style with the Escape Battle Pass that offers new Legendary skins including Desert Mirage and the Glorious Combatant Gibraltar skins. New music packs, loading screens, gun charms, holo spray and quips also let players customize the Apex Legends experience.
