The anticipation for Revenant is at an all-time high with the new Apex Legends Season 4: Assimilation gameplay trailer giving fans a first look into the upcoming character’s abilities.

Respawn’s launch trailer for Season 4 showed the upcoming assassin in action on the new tattered World’s Edge. The moment Revenant appeared on screen, the tone of the Hammond Robotics ad turned to a nightmare hellscape view that World’s Edge will transform into for the upcoming season.

While there isn’t a confirmed list of the Legend’s abilities just yet, all three were put on display in the trailer, coinciding heavily with what had been previously leaked.

Revenant summons a totem that could shield a team from instant death.

In the trailer, Revenant can be seen throwing down an ominous-looking totem, most likely his Death Recall Ultimate Ability, which “protects anyone who uses it from death. Instead of getting killed or downed, you’ll return to the totem with 20 health,” according to leaks.

After passing through the totem, a virus-like effect covers the edge of the screen – similar to the one people saw when playing as the Shadow faction from the Shadowfall LTM in the October 2019 Fight or Fright event.

The ability is perfect for setting up a zone to attack.

Immediately after throwing down his Ult, Revenant follows it up with his Tactical Ability – projectile emanating from the top of his left forearm. This definitely looks like it could be the Poison Bomb, a lethal object that inflicts damage and a slowing effect on anyone in the area.

The final build-up to Revenant’s attack is his Passive Ability, called Infiltrator, which lets him “climb walls higher and crouch walk faster.” While we didn’t get to see the full climb, it seems like the nefarious Legend was easily making his way up the building’s side without nearby ledges to reset his climb.

Players also got a glimpse of this ability in action when he scaled the side of a glass-lined building during last week’s launch trailer.

Revenant can be seen scaling a large distance before getting to the top of the building.

So although Revenant’s abilities haven’t been technically announced or confirmed yet, it’s pretty evident that Respawn ended up sticking to what they had originally planned way back when the leaks about the Legend began to surface.

Players will be able to try Revenant for themselves once Season 4 launches on Tuesday, February 4.

Apex Legends Season 7 is almost here, and that means changes to characters. So, we’ve rounded up all the buffs that Respawn have confirmed so far.

With each new Apex Legends season, players are always looking forward to getting their hands on a new Legend as well as seeing what’s been changed to existing Legends, weapons, and items.

As Season 7 is on the horizon, Respawn have begun to roll out their teasers – with a familiar-looking UFO turning up on both Kings Canyon and World’s Edge.

Aside from that, the devs have also been planting seeds about what buffs and nerfs are coming in the new season. So, we’ve rounded up the buffs that we know about so far.

Mirage

As one of Apex’s most popular characters, players have been desperate for Respawn to give Mirage a power increase, even after his abilities rework.

Those changes have always been on the horizon, as devs have answered numerous questions with positives answers about buffs, and those promises will finally come to fruition with the start of Season 7.

Daniel Klein, a game designer for Respawn, confirmed that they’ve been testing changes to his Life of the Party ult, so that could be the main change that the Holographic Trickster receives next season.

Octane

Octane is also confirmed to be getting some positive treatment, but Respawn say it will only be a “tiny buff,” so no indication exactly what it will be yet. 

Rampart

As for Rampart, while a buff has been confirmed, there haven’t been any hints as to what it could entail. Since her introduction, players have made a number of suggestions – including being able to move around while firing her minigun. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see on that front.

Pathfinder

Pathfinder will also be receiving a change to the cooldown on his grapple ability. However, the last time this was labeled a buff, it actually turned out to be a nerf

Audio

Not a buff as such, but Respawn have also confirmed that lots of progress has been made on audio problems, which have been plaguing the game for months, and these fixes will be coming in Season 7.

As for what else is coming in Season 7, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know here. We’ll just have to wait until November 4, when the new season starts, to see it all in action.
