The Finals Season 2 patch notes – New map, gadgets, weapons and game show event


The Finals Season 2 is live on Steam, Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5. The new season introduces a host of new gameplay features, including the Horizon map, which is described as a “glitchy, colourful cityscape that’s partially loaded with floating geometric shapes”. Elsewhere, fans can check out a new 5-v-5 game mode in which teams attempt to escort a physical platform through the arena. The twist, however, is that the platform rips through anything in its path. Elsewhere, the development studio has added a tutorial, three new weapons, new specialisations, and a Battle Pass complete with dozens of rewards.
