After months of waiting, we finally got our first look at Apex Legends’ Season 4. Dubbed “Assimilation,” this season introduces the playable legend Revenant along with new map changes and the Sentinel sniper rifle. While many originally believed that Forge would be the upcoming legend, developer Respawn Entertainment yanked the rug out from under the community by killing this character in a brief animated short. Now with Revenant confirmed to be the next character, we finally got to see what he’s like in-game, along with everything coming in Season 4.
Instantly, the most noticeable change comes to the World’s Edge map which has seen a number of alterations. The large city in the center has been split in half by a massive fissure, while the Planet Harvester has melted all the ice. Gone is the snow theme of Season 3, with the new map looking far more hellish.
We also got a glimpse at some of the new battle pass cosmetics which includes skins for Lifeline, Wattson, and Wraith. Revenant finally got his gameplay debut, showing that he can summon a crystal of some kind that buffs teammates and the ability to climb up walls. This should make him an intriguing assault option since he can sneak up on teams that believe they have a height advantage. He also fires a projectile that seems to stun and slow down the opponents, allowing him to get an easy kill.
Apex Legends Season 4 launches tomorrow for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
