I will’t judge it’s been almost two years since Apex Legends launched. Abet then it had handiest one map and eight characters. Now the fight royale has three wintry maps that slice and alternate as the seasons fade by, and 15 (!) Legends. It’s now not lengthy now except we meet the 16th either. At this time, Respawn gave us all our first survey at Fuse, an explosive Aussie Memoir who’s arriving in Apex’s eighth season, which kicks off on February 2nd.
In an announcement, Respawn name Fuse “the laid-help explosives knowledgeable”. Win a load of his foundation story within the unique cinematic underneath.
Fuse seems to open out his explodey profession by discovering a really sparkling grenade along with his correct friend after they were formative years. They bond over this treasure while he turns into some invent of illegal combating legitimate, and after they’re all grown up, he decides to affix the Apex games. His buddy responds to this by trying to murder him. They spend a few moments throwing the aforementioned grenade at each and each various with the pin removed, then Fuse right… will get his arm blown off, and walks away as if they’ve right had a really usual dialog. I’d argue that this doesn’t compose him survey noteworthy of an explosives “knowledgeable”, however laid-help? Certain, that tracks.
Veritably, I love diving into the lore of these animations. Nonetheless, with this one, I don’t safe any idea what’s occurring. Does the special sparkling grenade they get safe magic/techy powers? Why did Fuse’s childhood buddy need him unimaginative (or, partially exploded)? Who even are these other folks? I even safe nothing however questions.
Fortuitously, it seems I received’t be ready too lengthy for answers. Fuse will come in some unspecified time in the future in Season 8, which begins in only two weeks on February 2nd. He’s bringing with him a brand unique gun, the 30-30 Repeater (a lever-action rifle) and a “main overhaul” to the Kings Canyon map as properly.
Have to you’ve been enjoying Apex lately, you will be succesful to wish seen a few teasers for the upcoming season already. Over the last few days, incendiary bombs safe been spotted on Kings Canyon which explode into mountainous puddles of fireplace when shot at. A hint at Fuse’s abilities perhaps? Or a taste of some explosive map adjustments to come?
The unique season is named Mayhem, so my money’s on both.
