Launching on August 3, Emergence will introduce new Legend Seer, who was revealed via the lore trailer below.
“With microdrones and an artist’s eye, Seer spots opportunities that other Legends might miss, and seizes them in the most beautiful way he can,” according to the game’s official website.
Emergence will also include an updated World’s Edge map and the new Rampage LMG.
It will introduce ranked arenas too. “Prove yourself an Apex Predator in either Arenas or Battle Royale for the first time ever,” EA said.
Respawn is set to offer a closer look at Emergence during EA Play Live on July 22. The event will last for 40 minutes and focus on titles “coming out soon” including Battlefield 2042, Lost in Random and “a couple other games”.
Respawn recently outlined its ongoing efforts to combat cheating in Apex Legends, including hiring more staff dedicated to handing out manual bans and creating additional tools to fight distributed denial of service attacks.
The studio will launch Apex Legends Mobile during the six months ending on March 31, 2022. According to series game director Chad Grenier, the mobile title is “a new version of Apex Legends, but it’s true to the original”.
