Apex Legends Season 18: Resurrection is almost here, and the recent release of the upcoming season’s gameplay trailer confirms that rather than adding a new legend to the game, Respawn developers have decided to instead give a head-to-toe makeover to a fan-favorite legend: Revenant. The undead assassin will also be unlocked for all players for the entirety of Season 18, allowing those who haven’t unlocked him yet to get a taste of his new skill set.
Known as “Revenant Reborn,” the rework sees Apex’s unfriendly neighborhood murderbot get a whole new set of abilities, a new default skin, and an updated voice. His iconic “crying” skull-shaped faceplate has been replaced with one that sports a sinister smile, and the heavy voice filter used to make him sound menacing and robotic has been significantly dialed back. In-game, the change is revealed to be the work of Octane’s grandfather, Torres “Duardo” Silva, who wishes to gain control of Revenant for some unknown (but undoubtedly nefarious) purpose.
According to the new trailer, Revenant’s current kit will be replaced with the following abilities when Season 18 goes live:
Passive: Assassin’s Instinct
Revenant is keeping his ability to crouch-walk more quickly and quietly than other legends. He’s also keeping his ability to climb faster and farther than them. But starting in Season 18, Revenant will also be able to climb horizontally.
His passive also includes another ability–Revenant will be able to see enemies who are under 40 health.
