The latest Stories from the Outlands trailer introduces Seer, Apex Legends’ most stylish hero yet, in an animation style that may look familiar…
Apex Legends introduces Seer in its latest trailer Stories from the Outlands – Metamorphosis.
Metamorphosis focuses on upcoming legend Seer, as it chronicles his life from birth through to adulthood. According to the trailer, Seer is cursed with some form of terrible power. While the world turns its back on the small boy with glowing blue eyes, his parents train him to survive. This results in Seer joining what appears to be an underground fight club, where he uses his mysterious abilities to best his opponents.
While the trailer gives away little on how Seer will play in Apex Legends, it does provide both a stylish introduction to the character and a date for the Season 10: Emergence reveal trailer. The upcoming trailer will debut during EA Play Live on July 22.
Animation fans will no doubt recognize the style used in Metamorphosis. The trailer is a collaboration between Respawn Entertainment and Passion Pictures, perhaps best known for its work on Netflix’s highly acclaimed Love, Death + Robots. Passion Pictures created Zima Blue for the anthology series’ first season and Ice for the second season. Robert Valley, director of both of the aforementioned animated shorts, also directed Metamorphosis.
Respawn Entertainment remains tight-lipped on any specific information regarding Seer’s play style. While several brief videos were released on the developer’s Twitter account, they were largely cryptic teases on the origins of the character. Several voice lines recently added to the game further hint at Seer’s abilities; Caustic describes Seer as a coward due to his use of “subterfuge and misdirection.”
If you want to check out Seer when Season 10: Emergence eventually launches, then you should grab Apex Legends. It’s free-to-play on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. It’s also available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S via backwards compatibility.
