Apex Legends Season 8 gameplay trailer: new Legend, Battle Pass & more
The gameplay trailer for Apex Legends Season 8, titled Mayhem, has finally been released which showcases the new Legend Fuse, as well as significant changes to the Kings Canyon map.
Apex Legends Season 8, Mayhem, is set to be released on February 2, 2021. This comes just before February 4’s second anniversary of Apex Legends, so expect this season to be one of the most content-rich.
On January 26, Respawn Entertainment premiered the gameplay trailer for Season 8, which showcases new map changes, upcoming cosmetics, as well as new Legend Fuse’s abilities in-game.
Apex Legends Season 8 gameplay trailer
In this1980s action-movie themed trailer, we get a taste of what to expect from Apex Legends Season 8.
New Legend Fuse
This trailer introduces the new Legend, Fuse, who we have already seen through the ‘Stories from the Outlands’ trailer and the Season 8 launch trailer.
Now, we get a look at his abilities and finisher in action. As showcased by what we’ve seen of him so far, Fuse deals with explosives. He shoots what he calls a ‘knuckle cluster’ which appears to temporarily stun the enemies.
His abilities have previously been leaked, but we’ll know his kit for sure when Apex Legends Season 8 releases.
Kings Canyon Map Changes
Season 8 brings Apex Legends back to the classic Kings Canyon map, but with some significant changes.
Following Maggie’s attack on the Apex Games in the Season 8 launch trailer, Kings Canyon has been destroyed. In the new gameplay trailer, we see the obliterated remnants of the very first Apex Legends map. Explosions have created new areas, and many buildings you have come to know and love have been blown apart.
Season 8 Battle Pass
The trailer gave us a taste of the new items coming in the Season 8 Battle Pass. It’s confirmed that we’ll be getting new outfits for both Bangalore and Lifeline, as well as a new Legendary skin for the Longbow DMR.
Check out Charlie Intel when Season 8 drops for a rundown of the full Battle Pass.
New 30-30 Repeater Rifle
With Apex Legends Season 8 comes the new 30-30 Repeater Rifle. This single-action repeater appears to be capable of killing enemies in only a couple of shots and can be used at almost any range.
The trailer also showed the rifle being charged up for a more powerful shot, meaning it either has a secondary fire mode or can be fitted with a Hop-Up.
The trailer showcases the new Gold rarity magazines which come as part of Season 8. While you have these magazines equipped, your weapon will automatically reload while holstered. As they are Gold rarity, expect these magazines to be ultra-rare.
Once the new season releases on February 2, check back on Charlie Intel for everything new in Apex Legends Season 8.
