With less than a week to go before the official launch of Apex Legends Mobile, all eyes are certainly on the game's first exclusive Legend set to make its debut in Season 1.
Respawn Entertainment has just given players a first look at the new character, throwing them in at the end of the Apex Legends Mobile: Season 1 Launch Trailer.
The trailer itself is about par for the course of what to expect from Respawn, showing off the hectic action that comes with the franchise's signature Apex Games.
At launch, Apex Legends Mobile is set to have a roster of 10 characters, with nine coming directly from the original title — Bloodhound, Bangalore, Mirage, Octane, Gibraltar, Lifeline, Pathfinder, Wraith and Caustic — all of whom, make prominent appearances in the video.
After Mirage seizes the glory for himself in the one-off match, however, Titanfall’s own Kuben Blisk can be seen looking at the TV screen when the announcers tease that "he has some new competition in the next match."
At that point, players can see the new character that, according to an eXputer report made by prominent gaming insider Tom Henderson on Tuesday, will be known as "Fade."
Nicknamed the "Phasing Punisher," Fade will reportedly be the 10th and final Legend playable in Apex Legends Mobile at launch with the following kit:
- Slipstream (Passive): You can gain a short movement speed boost at the end of the slide
- Flash Back (Tactical): Go back to where you were a while ago from the Void
- Phase Chamber (Ultimate): Release a phase cage to send all Legends within range into the Void
According to Henderson, Fade is "almost definitely human" and dons red and silver armor with gold highlights and a mask that resembles "a skull to some degree."
This appears to match up perfectly with the teaser, but players thankfully won't have to wait too long to confirm for themselves.
Apex Legends Mobile is set to release for Android and iOS on Tuesday, May 17.
