Apex Legends reveals Seer’s highly effective monitoring talents
There’s nowhere to cover from Apex Legends’ new character, the “stealth-oriented” tracker Seer. The following legend was totally unveiled in the present day through the EA Play 2021 reside stream as a part of Apex’s subsequent season, which is known as Emergence. Gameplay is coming Monday, however for now, we’ve a really flashy animated quick that introduces the brand new season, the brand new Rampage LMG, and a few upcoming adjustments to the World’s Edge map.
Seer is Apex’s first new tracker legend since Bloodhound, who’s been round since launch. With a military of monitoring drones embedded in his chest, Seer can ship out minions to search out and observe targets together with his tactical view, which sounds considerably much like Bloodhound’s area-of-effect movement tracker. Extra attention-grabbing to me is Seer’s passive, a heartbeat sensor that he makes use of by aiming-down-sights. I am pondering which means he can roughly inform the place enemies are hiding if he is aiming of their course, which sounds fairly darn neat.
Essentially the most intimidating a part of his equipment is well the final word, which sends out a whole lot of Seer’s microdrones to kind an enormous dome perimeter. Anybody that strikes into the perimeter must transfer slowly (unclear whether or not which means crouching or just not sprinting) or be revealed by means of partitions to Seer and his squad. The perimeter may even seize enemy footsteps, although it isn’t but clear if that info is broadcast to Seer.
We’ll know extra after the July 26 gameplay reveal (and much more as soon as we are able to really play Emergence), however based mostly on the outline, Seer feels like a really helpful addition to a squad.
In the present day’s EA play stream additionally consists of updates on Battlefield 2042, Knockout Metropolis, and a brand new Grid sport. This is watch EA Play and what else to anticipate.
