With the reveal of Apex Legends‘ season four, many fans are already looking to the battle royale’s next features, including the game’s newest playable legend: Revenant—but who is this mysterious character, anyways?
Players got their first official glimpse of Revenant with the launch of the Halloween-themed Fight or Fright Collection event in October. He appeared in the event’s trailer after Pathfinder takes a Wraith portal to an alternate dimension and invited the recon legend to partake in “[his] games”, or Apex’s Halloween-themed limited-time game mode named Shadowfall.
Data miners first discovered Revenant in August shortly after the Iron Crown Collection event launched. With the update came new files, which contained a short description of the character and a list of abilities.
Revenant’s passive ability, which is named Stalker, allows him to walk faster while crouched and climb walls higher. The legend’s Q, named Silence, throws out a grenade that deals damage and silences any opponents hit by its range.
For his ultimate ability, Revenant drops a totem. Allies can interact with the totem to enter a shadow mode, which prevents them from dying or being downed. Those in shadow mode ignore shield damage, and if their health is depleted, they respawn at Revenant’s totem with a sliver of health.
When does Revenant launch on live servers?
Revenant is set to launch with Apex Legends‘ season four, which arrives on live servers Feb. 4 in celebration of the battle royale’s one-year anniversary. Included with the season is a new sniper rifle, named the Sentinel, changes to World’s Edge, and a new battle pass.
