The secrets out! After weeks of teasing and completing mysterious tasks for an unknown character, Respawn have dropped a new trailer for Apex Legends featuring the new Scottish character and a brand new map.
The trailer, titled ‘Promise’, sets up the tale of tragedy. Horizon, our new hero, travelled across space to find crystals which would fix her kingdom’s energy crisis, only to be betrayed by a jealous scientist. Holding onto the titular ‘promise’ made to her son, she seeks her return to her home planet to see him once again, but time has passed with unfavourable speed. 84 years later she manages to make it home and finds her home in what looks like a vortex – a black hole which has shattered across space wrecks havoc in the distance. “Don’t worry,” she whispers toward the skyline. “I’ll make that promise yet. It’s just a matter of time.”
Astrophysicist Horizon’s specific abilities are unknown, with hints towards being gravity-based and able to commander a new vehicle. Past weeks have seen anti-gravity beacons placed near towers, accessible after completing Horizon’s tasks in the current season. The trailer also highlights the new map called “Olympus”. The “beautiful, lush city in the clouds” is featured in concept art on loading screens and can be navigated with the new vehicle called Trident.
The trailer for Season 7 “Ascension” drops tomorrow at 3pm GMT. So, tighten your space boots and get ready to fly into the sky with the biggest Season update yet.
With World’s Edge on the verge of collapse, the Apex Games need to find a new home. Tune in tomorrow at 8 AM PT to watch the Apex Season 7 Launch Trailer. There’s a whole new world on the horizon…
