New Apex Legends character Vantage announced

Apex Legends

Respawn recently leaked their new upcoming Apex Legends character – only to quickly officially reveal the new combatant.

Respawn accidently uploaded a new episode of their “Stories from the Outlands” series to the Apex Legends client. Soon after this the developer realized the cat was out of the bag and officially announced Vantage, the new hero coming to their battle royale shooter.

“There’s a new instalment of Stories from the Outlands!,” reads the accompanying text. “Watch Survive and meet the new Legend joining the Games in Apex Legends: Hunted, coming August 9,” the announcement teases.

A previous leak (via VGC) noted the character will have a winged companion and will be built around the primary use of sniper rifles and other long ranged weapons – all of which makes me think they may function like Mordecai from Borderlands.

Vantage will launch for the game on July 28th, 2022. Apex Legends has been available for Windows PC (via Origin and Steam), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, and PS5.
