Apex Legends Season 18: Revenant Update
There won't be a new featured legend for the release of season 18, but Respawn Entertainment has confirmed that Revenant will be receiving a huge rework. The studio has revealed all of the details on Revenant's changes in a new blog post, which can you can check out below:
For years, Revenant has been mired in feelings of rage, self-hatred, and a lack of autonomy. He spent almost 300 years under the Syndicate’s thumb with the help of Hammond, and all he wanted was to escape it.
Suddenly, Revenant experiences a change—he starts to glitch. Everything is out of his control. In the middle of a match, he loses his abilities only to discover they've been replaced with new ones. Someone, somewhere, has launched a new protocol. He finds that he’s able to see enemies low on health, unleash a powerful leap forward, and forge a shroud of shadows around him that blocks incoming damage. But he also knows how to hold a grudge. Revenant’s angry, confused, and now he'll find and get revenge on whoever is messing with him.
PASSIVE: Assassin’s Instinct
- Highlight nearby visible enemies who are low on health. You crouch walk faster and have improved wall climbing.
TACTICAL: Shadow Pounce
- Unleash a powerful pounce forwards. Hold to charge for farther distances.
ULTIMATE: Forged Shadows
- Forge a shroud of hardened shadows around you that blocks direct damage and regenerates after breaking. Your shadows and tactical are refreshed on knockdowns.
Revenant will be unlocked for all players, all-season long. Players can complete challenges by using Revenant throughout the season in order to unlock him permanently.
