apex legends Players are no longer able to play on the Olympus map now that it has been removed from the current map rotation in response to some crashes that players were experiencing. In its place is World’s Edge, a fan-favorite map that was already part of Season 15 and will be seen more frequently now that Olympus is no longer there.He didn’t specify when or if the map will return to rotation this season, so for now, it looks like World’s Edge will be its replacement until Season 16 begins.
The map change was a response to a bug that players had encountered while playing this season, a bug that read “Engine Error: UI Images ran out of space.” The confusing bug with no apparent solution or cause usually also resulted in crashes, which have been occurring throughout the season.
Respawn previously said it was working on this issue, and while it wasn’t specified in the follow-up shared Thursday, it was apparently largely an Olympus-related issue. That’s not to say the bug isn’t happening in other places too, but it was a big enough problem on the smaller map that Respawn felt it was necessary to remove Olympus entirely for now.
Update: We’re moving forward with a playlist update that removes Olympus from the rotation and replaces it with World’s Edge. This will allow us to continue working on the issue without affecting gameplay.

With that change in mind, the current map rotation shifts players between World’s Edge and the newest map, Broken Moon, in normal public matches. More significant than that, World’s Edge has also taken over from Olympus in ranked mode. Since the first half of the season’s ranked mode was spent on Broken Mood and the second on Olympus, those who only play ranked may want to jump into some pub matches first to brush up on their World’s Edge strategies as apparently we’ll be sticking with that. map for the rest of the season.
As for the remainder of this season and the start of the next, Season 15 is currently projected to conclude in mid-February with Season 16 to follow immediately after.supposedly coming to the game, of course, they’ve been circulating online ahead of the new season, but we don’t know what the plans are for season 16 yet.
