In an Ask Me Anything (AMA) post on the Apex Legends Reddit, Respawn Entertainment developers answered questions on a wide variety of topics from the player base. One very interesting question that was being asked of the developer team quite a bit during this session was about the launch of Seer, the game's new legend. Many players feel the character launched a bit too strong, and asked for clarity on when the game may see some balancing changes come to Seer.

There was a lot of conversation back and forth about Seer with the team at Respawn, and one employee, Travis Nordin, was able to give the community the information most were looking for.

"Seer has launched strong, which was the hope," Nordin wrote. "He's also brought a lot of new gameplay elements to the game (HP bars, interrupt) which has driven a lot of discussion with players, which is great to see. With that being said [he] is probably a bit too strong at the moment and will [be] receiving some balance updates in an upcoming patch."

Nordin was upfront with players, saying Respawn had underestimated the impact Seer would have on launch and would be making changes to rectify that. That change is not very far off — Nordin said it would arrive before the midseason patch.

Seer's kit won't be seeing any overwhelming changes, but there are changes needed to put his kit abilities in line with the rest of the legends. Seer is a part of the 10 season of Apex Legends, Emergence. Along with Seer the new season comes with new weapons, and new map changes, which is out now on all platforms.
