In preparation for the game's first anniversary since its launch, Respawn held a development livestream for Apex Legends. Aside from serving as a retrospective on the popular battle royale, we also got our first glimpse at Apex Legends Season 4, which is set to add a new character and much more.
Forge, the new Legend, is described as "confident yet humble. A man who uses his "size, strength, and heavy-duty Shatter Gauntlets to batter his opponents into submission." He's meant to act as a brawler who gets up close and personal. He is also set to be the first character that is corporate sponsored in the game, and his sponsor is none other than Hammond Robotics, the in-game company known for creating the Titans in Respawn's Titanfall series.
Players will be able to wield a new weapon as well. The Sentinel is a powerful bolt-action sniper rifle that's capable of cutting through enemy armor. The developers didn't want to give too much away, but they did say that this sniper rifle is a little different from others in the game because it has some sort of charge mechanic.
The Season 4 Battle Pass includes over 100 exclusive items like Legendary skins, Apex Packs, Loading Screens, Music Packs, and more.
