Titled ‘Hunted’ and set to launch on August 9, it will introduce Apex Legend’s latest hero, Vantage, who’s primarily a ranged character with a sniper rifle.
EA said: “Born to a wrongfully convicted criminal who gave birth to her alone on the barren ice planet Págos, Vantage has grown into the ultimate survivalist.
“Accompanied only by her small winged companion Echo and forced to live off a hostile land, Vantage becomes unfathomably good with a scoped weapon.”
Vantage’s announcement is not a surprise as the character previously appeared in a couple of leaks.
In March, over two years’ worth of new Apex Legends content was reportedly leaked from a development build. It seemingly revealed nine new Legends, the ‘Divided Moon’ map, plus fresh weapons and heirlooms.
EA recently claimed Apex Legends has delivered over $2 billion in net bookings since its release in February 2019.
The publisher launched Apex Legends Mobile in May.
