Respawn has continued to make bold storytelling decisions when it comes to Apex Legends and that trend has continued in Season 5: Fortune’s Favor as the battle royale game moves towards a true episodic experience. Apparently Season 5 is already hinting at upcoming content with the map changes made to Kings Canyon, like the addition of mysterious hatches that seemingly lead to bunker-looking areas that can’t yet be accessed.
“The hatches are a fun way to sprinkle changes throughout the map,” Apex Legends design director Jason McCord said, according to VG247. “We don’t have to make massive changes everywhere, we can sprinkle these things around. We’re doing something kind of new, where we have some stuff that is there, but is not unlocked yet. And we’re going to unlock it at a certain time, that lines up with some other stuff that we have coming.”
Some of this content could have already been teased in Season 5. McCord said he thinks there are still Easter eggs and secrets tied to the new content in Season 5 that fans haven’t yet discovered, which may or may not be hinting towards Season 5’s “pleasant surprise” for Titanfall fans.
