Going into Apex Legends Season 16, players will notice that maps now rotate on a 24-hour basis. Once a day, the playable map in both casual and ranked modes will change between one of three on the rotation list.

This differs from previous seasons in which the battle royale map would only change at the split mark of the season. Essentially, this change should result in more gameplay variety for players who log in on a daily basis.

At the start of Season 16, there will be three maps in rotation for Apex Legends. These are:

  • Broken Moon
  • Storm Point
  • Worlds Edge
