Apex Legends teases one thing ‘past battle royale’ in Season 9
Respawn has introduced much more Titanfall 2 leads again into Apex Legends forward of the sport’s subsequent season—although I am afraid there’s nonetheless nary a Titan in sight.
The launch trailer for Apex Legends: Legacy (Respawn has dropped the Season quantity this time spherical) reintroduced us to Ash, a scary robotic lass and one of many Apex Predator antagonists from 2016’s great wallrunner. She’s been maintaining a tally of the video games—proven off in an explosive montage of gunfights, night time golf equipment and shattered beers—earlier than teasing the introduction of one thing “past battle royale”.
We do not get a lot past the title “Arenas” within the trailer. Info scraped from dataminer shrugtal might present a bit extra perception, suggesting a 3v3 mode that’ll flip components of Apex’s maps into tiny arenas that shrink additional over time. The trailer’s montage of workforce vs workforce fights lends credence to smaller, tighter firefights, and I’m eager on the thought of a mode that cuts straight into Apex’ great shootouts.
We additionally get a really transient glimpse at Olympus’ new “Overgrown” variation, turning the pristine flying metropolis right into a snow-blasted wilderness. There’s additionally a very good bit of latest hero Valkyrie nipping about on her jetpack—although I do not count on we’ll be jetting proper out of the sector as proven right here.
Respawn will give us a greater image of the brand new mode, new hero and reworked map in a gameplay reveal trailer subsequent Monday, April twenty sixth. Legacy itself is ready to start on Might 4th.
