3 Things to Get Excited About in Apex Legends Season 11

1. New Wildlife

One of the headlining additions in Season 11 is the new map set to arrive, Storm Point. Although there are plenty of reasons to get hype for this new battleground, one aspect in particular sticks out: new AI-controlled wildlife. Apex's maps are always interesting, but they became all the more lively when wild animals get involved. Prowlers, Goliaths, giant spiders, and Flyers are all expected to show up on Storm Point, making it the host hostile map in Apex history.

2. The C.A.R. SMG

New toys are always a major draw for Apex Legends, and the C.A.R. SMG is no exception. Respawn describes the C.A.R. as a "the gun for when you're ready to make a stand and become the last Legend still standing," and says it will be a flexible weapon. Here's hoping it can shake up the meta and find a place in the new landscape.

3. Ash

As with so many of Apex Legends' best playable characters, Ash has long been rumored and hinted at. Now that she's finally coming to the game, the community already has a connection to her and is anxious to pilot her sword-swinging ultimate ability for itself. Ash manages to be an even cooler simulacrum than Revenant — a high bar to clear — and she does it with aplomb.
