Apex Legends devs detail new Legend Horizon's abilities

By Brittany Vincent,
Respawn Entertainment shared additional information about Apex Legends' newest character, Horizon, as well as some of her gravity-focused abilities.

Horizon is headed to the game just in time for Season 7, and players were afforded an eyeful of everything she's capable of with a first look at gameplay.



The new legend, who first showed up in-game in early October, is finally coming into her own. She can use a special Gravity Lift to reach higher ground in each map, or her passive ability Spacewalk to float around from area to area. Her ultimate ability, however, is Black Hole. She'll send out her robotic pal Newt to create a miniature singularity, which will trap those unfortunate enough to be caught in its gravitational pull. It's also pretty terrifying to watch. Space is scary.

Horizon's background is just as impressive as her moves. She's an astrophysicist who escaped a black hole, which may or may not actually be impossible in the real world, but we aren't asking questions. Using her absolute mastery of gravity, she's got a promise to keep, and some butts to kick.

Apex Legends Season 7 is set to kick off on November 7th. That means there isn't much time left to wait to get our hands on Horizon and her tiny black holes. It looks like, from what we can ascertain, it won't take long for players to end up falling into her gravitational pull.
