game news Apex Legends Season 14: Full details on Vantage, Battle Royale’s first sniper hero!

For Apex Legends, it’s time to start a new chapter. For the past few days, the Respawn studio and Electronic Arts have been gradually lifting the veil on “Predation”, the next content addition for the Battle Royale. Between new heroes and revised and corrected maps, the developers tell us more about what will land. We attended an exclusive presentation to the press!

It’s not easy to stand up in the battle royale arena, but Apex Legends is doing it without bruises and even with honors. For Respawn and Electronic Arts’ online action game, the 2021-2022 fiscal year has proven to be particularly lucrative, thanks to a 40% increase in revenue. A success that probably won’t stop anytime soon. Apart from a recent mobile version, Apex Legends continues its long way from updates with new playable characters, the famous “Legends”, and new combat zones. Starting August 9, Predation Season 14 will take over, with the heroine “Vantage” headlining!

Legend and sniper, a first

Evan Nikolich, Design Director for Apex Legends, points it out bluntly in front of the press. “The star of the show (in season 14, editor’s note) is Vantage.” It’s a game habit from Electronic Arts and Respawn: each content addition rhymes with a new playable character, which players will then need to unlock by playing “normally” or spending real money. Along with the other new features, Legends represent a special problem for Apex Legends. The one to breathe new life into the games themselves, as well as the involvement of the fans.

So for the first time in Apex Legends history, Vantage marks the arrival of a hero designed around the sniper and ranged combat. Something that Respawn had always had in mind, according to designer Chris Winder. “The challenge (with this character, editor’s note) was to respect what we’re entitled to expect from a sniper and the importance of loot in Apex (…) without relying too heavily on high-damage abilities,” he says. The problem with long-range fights is that you can quickly get separated from your team.” Wilder clarifies that the Vantage’s arsenal will be less effective than the Kraber, one of the other long-range weapons in the game.

If we look at the power of the Vantage, we notice a more tactical approach than it seems. The heroine has three skills: precision viewwhich allows you to learn valuable information about an enemy (shield, rank, class) as well as the very composition of a team, by zooming in on the play area. It is possible to share this data with your squad thanks to a ping. ; winged redistributioncalling your bat friend “Echo” to quickly fly to your position; sniper mark, Vantage’s ultimate technique, where his signature weapon appears. If you hit an opponent with it, a mark will affect the target and be visible to your allies. From then on, the damage on this target will be higher.

Some details about Vantage:

Regarding Vantage’s ultimate, Respawn explains that it works differently than other “superpowers” in Legends. In fact, to call the Mark of the Sniper (and thus the heroine’s signature sniper), he won’t have to wait for the technique to fully charge. It regenerates in five levels, each of which represents ammo for the weapon. As soon as an ammo appears, you can equip the sniper and shoot from Vantage. Finally, if you’re wondering, the Echo Bat is invulnerable.

An answer for every obstacle

Vantage is sure to offer new strategic latitudes in Apex Legends and be a member of choice in a squad. “For (this Legend, editor’s note) every obstacle is something that can be solved,” explains Kevin Lee, one of the main authors of Respawn. “She was raised by a really determined mother.” Because yes, like studios like Riot Games (League of Legends) or Blizzard (World of Warcraft | Overwatch), the creators of Apex systematically contextualize the arrival of a character through a new scenario. We learn that Vantage enters the arena to draw attention to the innocence of his mother – Wrongfully accused of a crime they did not commit. The heroine, therefore, will bet on the knowledge of survival learned on the frozen planet of Pagos, where she grew up. It was there that she met Eco.

Xiomara Contreras, also known as Mara (or Vantage, editor’s note) was born and raised in the icy, desert-like environment of the planet Págos, with only her surviving mother, Xenia, for company. As soon as she was old enough to handle both the sights and the trigger of a sniper rifle, she showed an amazing predilection for this weapon. For her taciturn mother, the only way to interrupt Mara’s endless stream of questions was to give her the Desert Encyclopedia, which the girl memorized from A to Z. – Apex Official Site

Other novelties to highlight

All in all, Apex Legends Season 14 promises to bring some welcome new things. As we explained in a recent article, Respawn is also preparing for redesign a good part of Kings Canyon, the first Battle Royale card, now deemed “too small” by the studio. “This often meant squads were too close together early and mid-game, making it difficult for players to get into fights without being interrupted by a third party,” Respawn explains. This is why Kings Canyon is hosting a new point of interest, called the Relic, and is receiving an overhaul for other areas known to players (Cage, Hillside). Season 14 will be available starting August 9.
