EA unveils first look at Apex Legends Season 4
Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment surprised fans today with the revelation that the fourth season of hit battle royale shooter Apex Legends, entitled Assimilation, is set to drop tomorrow, with a gameplay trailer showing off all of the new features. The trailer can be viewed in the player below!
Assimilation will include a Battle Pass that will allow players to take on both daily and weekly challenges to earn unique rewards with a robotic twist. The updated World’s Edge map, where Hammond Robotics resides, is being ravaged by chaos as the company is harvesting resources in the area that is tearing up the arena. Players can take aim at opponents with the new Sentinel, a bolt-action sniper rifle that shuts down enemies before they have a chance to spot their attacker.
The new season also includes Revenant, the greatest hitman the Mercenary Syndicate ever had, but after his programming failed, he realized that Hammond Robotics turned him into a walking nightmare of steel and flesh. The return of the company to the Outlands has driven his desire for revenge and he will kill all in his way until he sees everyone dead.
Set in the same realm as Respawn’s Titanfall franchise, Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royal where legendary characters battle for glory, fame, and fortune on the fringes of the Frontier and is available on Origin for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Originally released in February 2019, the game has received rave reviews from critics and players alike and is considered a viable contender to best-selling battle royale Fortnite.
Apex Legends Season 4 – Assimilation will debut for players on February 4, 2020!
