Apex Legends’ new hero is Horizon, a Scottish astrophysicist with a “mastery of gravity”

Plus new Olympus map and Trident vehicle teased.

Apex Legends‘ seventh season, also known as Ascension, will soon be upon us, and developer Respawn has now revealed a little more of what players can expect – including new playable character Horizon – when it launches on 4th November.

Over on its newly launched Season 7 page, Respawn describes Horizon as a “brilliant astrophysicist who escaped a black hole and aims to use her newfound mastery of gravity to keep a promise”. There’s rather more to her backstory than that, however, and Horizon is more thoroughly introduced in a four-minute animated lore trailer, full of space travel and betrayal, that ends up being a little more moving than you might expect.

There’s no word yet on how Horizon will function in game play terms, other than that initial nod to her “mastery of gravity”, of course, but expect Respawn to flesh out those details – along with news on “beautiful, lush city in the clouds” new map Olympus and the new Trident vehicle – closer to launch.

Apex Legends‘ seventh season will also introduce a new Ranked Season and Battle Pass – the latter featuring over 100 new rewards, including Legendary Skins, Apex Packs, and Holo-Sprays – as well as a new Clubs feature, described as a place to “find like-minded players, building a community, and rise together”.

Season 7 of Apex Legends heads to Origin, Xbox One, and PS4 on 4th November, and the long-awaited Steam version arrives the same day. Switch players will, however, need to wait a little longer to get in on the Apex Legends actions, with Respawn having recently confirmed that its port to Nintendo’s platform has been delayed into next year.
