Apex Legends screenshot of the original World's Edge map

[Update]: Apex Legends is adding Overflow as a brand new Arena map right after the Genesis event ends, on July 13, 2021!

A brand new Apex Legends update has just arrived, and if you're veteran player it's quite a nostalgic one! Not only does the Genesis update bring back the original World's Edge and Kings Canyon maps as a time limited event, but it has also added the chaotic Skull Town as a brand new Arena map!

Skull Town will be sticking around forever as a part of the Arena game mode, while the two retro maps will be rotating on an hourly basis in the normal Trios and Duos modes until the event's closure. Speaking of which, the Genesis event will only be running until July 13, so you might want to dive in as soon as you can.

You can get a pretty good idea of what the 'new' Skull Town map looks like, as well as what sort of cosmetics you can grab throughout the whole thing, in the event trailer below. Have a gander:

In terms of gameplay chances, the Genesis event has brought in yet another set of nerfs to Octane and Bloodhound, while also messing around with Revenant's kit in order to make him feel better to play as and against. There's also some small buffs to the P2020, 30-30 Repeater and Longbow, while the Spitfire has received a long-requested increase to its hip fire spread.

You can check out the full list of changes, as well as what sort of cosmetics you can grab on the free reward track, over at the Apex Legends website. Have fun!
