The newest playable character en route to Apex Legends has quite completely crash-landed into King’s Canyon as part of the final reveal for the 8th Season. Fuse, an Australian-sounding gentleman first announced to players in the Good as Gold story trailer several days ago, is a violent champion carrying a massive rocket launcher as a finishing move.
He comes from Salvo, a borderline planet rumored to be centered on explosions. After undergoing political manipulation, the planet is siding with a more civilized society, and Fuse is joining the Apex Games as part of the ritual. He’s arriving in February along with Apex Legends Season 8 – Mayhem.
Apex Legend’s latest season coincides with Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale’s second anniversary, and the game has grown considerably since 2019. Constant season drops have broadened out the roster of characters to fifteen competitors, with Fuse soon to keep the number going.
There are three maps routinely on rotation alongside a few unique game modes that periodically pop up and favorite weapons added in from the Titanfall franchise. There aren’t any giant mechs to pilot, but the new map added a three-man vehicle to the game, which is one step towards that elusive goal.
As for what fans can anticipate with Season Eight and Fuse, they got a quick glimpse with the new Mayhem Launch Trailer posted this week. It features Fuse entering King’s Canyon only to be stopped by Maggie, his fellow warrior as depicted in the Good as Gold story trailer.
She turns the weapons of Fuse’s ship against him, firing into the crowd assembled to see his debut and compelling him to overwhelm the vessel and run for his life. The ship falls into the canyon, which should foretell changes coming to the map in Season 8.
Gameplay-wise, Fuse’s ultimate skill is a large area of effect rocket launcher, and his tactical choice is a projectile grenade, although the exact information of both skills are still under wraps for now. Aside from the new map and new hero, Season Eight will also introduce a new weapon to the game – the 30-30 Repeater.
This gun is a lever-action rifle, so it will be a perfect sniping option with the help of a good scope and other attachments. Season Eight will also bring a new battle pass as anyone can expect, so existing players are encouraged to get their games in before February to get those final levels and say goodbye to King’s Canyon as they know it.
