A new round of teasers for Apex Legends Season 7 has officially revealed a character named Horizon, as Respawn starts to wind up the hype for the next era in the battle royale.

The studio introduced a ‘monitor’ in the Firing Range which served as a terminal that played a video featuring someone talking off-screen. After completing all the challenges handed to you, the monitor officially introduces Dr. Mary Somers, also called Horizon.

That was a strong indication that Respawn could have Horizon queued up to be the Season 7 Legend, especially since she says “see ya real soon, darlins.” About a month out from the next season is about the time that the devs like to whet their fans’ appetites for new content.

Now we have a clear picture of who to expect to play in the Games soon. By how she introduced herself, it also sounds like Horizon and her crew will be making a major splash in Apex Legends whenever they finally debut.

“All that data you’ve provided us will come in handy… when we face ya in the Games,” Horizon said, after the player completed all of the challenges.

The same day as the teaser released in Apex, Respawn also announced the Championship Edition of the game that will be coming in Season 7. In that trailer, we see the silhouette of the next Legend for the game, which could very well be Horizon.

Earlier in October, dataminer ‘Biast’ found the challenges and the teaser that players are finding today. Horizon’s badge was also previewed in these leaks, with the image of her face and prominent goggles.

Horizon was also listed as an Offensive-type Legend in another slate of leaks that listed six other characters that were rumored for Apex.

It should be noted that the order of the characters in that leak suggested she was still four Legend releases away from coming to Apex, but that obviously wouldn’t be the case if she arrives in Season 7.

While the in-game teaser has made Horizon an official character in Apex, fans should still wait to see if she turns out to be an Offensive Legend.

These teasers usually leaves people with more questions than they answer, but everything should be more clear when Season 7 launches in Apex Legends.

As with each season of Apex Legends, a new character is set to be introduced to the roster in Season 8, but who will it be? There are a handful of unreleased Legends that have been rumored for a long time now, and all signs point to one of them: Fuse.

Season 8 of Apex Legends is expected to drop around the 2-year anniversary of the game’s launch, back in February 2019. In early February 2021, the eighth season will arrive – a year on from when Revenant joined the Apex Games in Season 4.

The next Legend will have a lot of expectations to live up to, as the most recent new Legend, Horizon, released in the strongest state of any post-launch character.

Whether this new recruit will instantly become part of the meta remains to be seen, but their leaked abilities might give us some indication. Here’s everything we know about the rumored Season 8 Legend, Fuse.

Who is the Season 8 Legend?

Nothing has been confirmed by Respawn, yet, and likely won’t be until we get much closer to the release of the new Season. But, we can expect some teasers to start appearing on the map throughout January, as they’ve done for previous Legends.

However, if you don’t mind the surprise being spoiled, data miners have been digging through the game files to uncover new content added in the Fight Night update, which gives us an indication of the new character and their abilities.

This new Legend is called Fuse (in the game files at least), and the name ties into their leaked abilities.

What are Fuse’s abilities?

Leakers have found various files in-game that indicate Fuse’s abilities will be focused on explosives. The official names of these abilities could change, but this is what we know currently.

  • Tactical: Projectile Grenade
  • Ultimate: Firebomb

Sound files for the abilities were also found and leaked by Biast12.

Interestingly, these abilities seem to line up with a Legend concept that was first posted back in May 2019 on Reddit – with the name of the concept also called ‘Fuse’.

This concept by a fan was also called an ‘explosives expert’, so it seems possible that Respawn could have taken inspiration from this character idea. This is what the concept looked like (note this is a fan-made concept – not the official Fuse Legend).

This fan-made concept for a Legend called Fuse was very popular back in 2019.

It must be reiterated that nothing is confirmed yet. After all, Respawn previously tricked everyone with the release of Forge – who was then killed and replaced by Revenant. This was actually a deliberate ploy to throw off the data miners.

However, the last three Legends have all been correctly leaked ahead of their release, so we can put some faith in these files being accurate. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Other Season 8 leaks have revealed an Anniversary Collection Event is planned, which will bring back recolors of some of the best Legend skins.
