Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment released, as expected, the game’s first trailer for the upcoming season of content for the popular Battle Royale shooter video game. Season 8: Mayhem includes an updated Kings Canyon map, a new weapon, and a new Legend in the form of Fuse, and the new trailer offers the best look yet of all the above. If you’re curious what to expect when the new season launches on February 2, this should put you off until then.
Interestingly, the trailer is cut as one might have been for a late ’80s movie trailer. While it does show some character and weapon aspects, it focuses primarily on Walter “Fuse” Fitzroy, the latest and greatest legend. While Respawn Entertainment has yet to release specific details about his abilities, it appears that based on the game trailer his Ultimate will allow him to drop a cluster bomb in a nearby area like a faster and more localized Bangalore Ultimate.
Apex Legends is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with a Nintendo Switch version in development. Apex Legends is in the middle of Season 7: Ascension. As noted above, Season 8 – Mayhem is expected to launch on February 2 with the new Legend, Fuse.
