Apex Legends Horizon, classified as a Gravitational Disruptor, is the 15th character to be added to the game's lineup and debut's in Apex Legends Season 7.

With the new Olympus map coming in Season 7, Horizon will have home-city advantage. As detailed in the latest episode of Respawn's "Stories from the Outlands" series, the Apex Games are heading to the site of the astrophysicist's scientific research station at the perfect time.

Apex Legends Horizon Introduced in Season 7

After being betrayed by her apprentice during a black hole mission, an event that desynced Dr. Mary Somers with the outside world by 87 years, Horizon enters the Apex Games determined to fund her research to turn back time and be reunited with her young son.

Horizon's connections to Olympus doesn't just stop with her backstory however, as her kit is tailor-made for the new sky city arena.

Starting with her passive ability, Spacewalk, Horizon is the best legend in the game for mid-air movement and reducing fall impacts from great heights. Her tactical ability enables her to drop Gravity Lifts, which boosts players upwards and outwards, giving her team major vertical play.

Lastly, a crowd control mechanic that's been reimagined and well-utilized before in other titles, perhaps most notably by Overwatch's Zarya, Horizon's Black Hole ultimate ability pulls nearby opponents into a focused area before hitting them with a graviton blast finish.

In addition to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC players on Origin, Apex Legends Season 7: Ascension drops Nov. 4 on Steam at 11 p.m. ET.
