Apex Legends Genesis Collection Brings Back Original Kings Canyon, World's Edge

Apex Legends new event Genesis Collection goes old school with the return of the original versions for Kings Canyon and World's Edge.

At its core, Apex Legends is still the same game that players fell in love with at launch, though it has gone through its fair share of changes, particularly with its maps. Players just getting into the franchise this year have never experienced the original versions of Kings Canyon or Worlds Edge. 

However, that will change before the end of the month. 

The Genesis Collection is a new event just unveiled for the battle royale that recently entered its ninth season. So to celebrate, developer Respawn has decided to look back. The Season 0 version of Kings Canyon and the Season 3 version of World's Edge will be the maps for duos and trios starting June 29, 2021, all the way through July 13, 2021. 

There will also be a brand new addition to the new arenas game mode, with Skull Town, an area from the original Kings Canyon being added as a new arenas map. This event will also come with a bevy of updates, bug fixes, and legend adjustments.

Some of the most notable being Octane's jump pad cooldown increased from 60 to 90 seconds, and Revenant's hitbox being shrunk slightly while his climbing ability is increased. If you want to check out the rest of the updates, you can look at the full patch notes here.
