Response Entertainment has given a new legend fuse and their abilities in action, as well as Kings Canyon’s oblivion at the Apes Legends Season 8 launch trailer.
Fuse, real name Walter FitzRoy is the eighth post-launch legend to appear in the Apex game, bringing the total to 16 – double what the game had during launch.
As his name implies, his ability is about explosives, and he is a jerk, be it first, ask questions later, write the character. Sailing from Salvo – a new planet that we have just come to know – he is also bringing a new weapon with him, 30-30 repeaters.
The launch trailer, released on January 21, gives us a first look at two major parts of the upcoming season: the Fuse’s Capability Kit, and the new look Kings Canyon.
Season 8 launch trailer
Fuse capabilities in apex legends
Although not fully explained, this trailer gives us a look at Fuse using his abilities, which he will be doing at Apex Games.
His ultimate, who was already teased in the game, is seen dropping a mortar-like bomb, which later damages anyone.
We can also see him launching grenades from his arm, which would be his tactical ability.
Salvo’s integration with the syndicate was a joyous occasion, but Fuse’s old friends are certainly not happy – and decided to crash the party.
This has left King Canyon in ruins – ready for a new season of massive map changes. Respna games have become experts at weaving game lore into actual gameplay and this is another example of this.
In the trailer, it appears that both the Artillery and Slum Lake have been destroyed, but we may have to wait for the gameplay trailer to see the full extent of the damage.
Season 8 launches on February 2 on consoles, PCs and possibly the Nintendo Switch.
