Apex Legends’ next season, “Escape,” brings players to Storm Point, the game’s fourth and newest map. A world premiere trailer on Monday showed fans what they can expect from the island setting, as well as glimpses of gameplay involving the newest Legend, and the return of a favorite weapon from Titanfall 2.

Storm Point figures to be a huge map, not necessarily with discrete biomes, but with distinctive environments alternating between natural surroundings and building interiors. A Gravity Cannon helps players traverse it, and, of course, Respawn Entertainment developers want players to notice that they can fire weapons, chuck grenades, and use tacticals or ultimates while in transit. Players can slightly control their trajectory to avoid landing on anything dangerous.

Prowlers (they’re the lizard beasts), flyers (the, uh, flying ones), and spiders also will pop up to harass everyone, providing some PvE encounters for you and your squad. We also get a look at the C.A.R. SMG (at 1:30 of the trailer) and Ash’s abilities, including a tether that restrains her opponents — though they can still fire and use other capabilities.

Apex Legends: Escape is the hero-shooter’s 11th season, and it begins Nov. 2. This official blog post from Respawn has more about Storm Point.
