Apex Legends’ latest hero Seer is a stealthier Bloodhound

At today’s EA Play Live event, EA and Respawn revealed the trailer for Apex Legends season 10, known as Emergence. The two companies provided new information about the playable character Seer, a recon hero who uses small drones and a heartbeat sensor to reveal enemies’ movements within a given area.

Apex Legends: Emergence Launch Trailer

Beyond Seer, Apex game director Chad Grenier discussed the next year of the Apex Legends Global Series and announced that Xbox and PlayStation players will be invited to compete alongside PC players.

Grenier describes Seer as a tracker, similar to existing character Bloodhound but with a different play style. While Bloodhound is fairly aggressive, Seer is designed to be played more stealthily. His passive ability is a heartbeat sensor that can be used while aiming down sights. The sensor will give players hints as to enemies’ locations. His tactical sends out a multitude of small drones that will reveal and track enemies as they move.

Seer, Bloodhound, and Rampart face off on World's Edge.

His ultimate ability creates a sphere around an area of the battlefield that reveals and tracks all enemies moving through it. In order to remain hidden while in the area, enemies are forced to move more slowly. All of these abilities can be seen in the new Emergence cinematic trailer, which premiered at the show. A full gameplay reveal trailer is coming on Monday, July 26.

Grenier also touched on the upcoming additions to Arenas. The team wants to expand Apex Legends beyond battle royale gameplay and plans to do so with the new ranked Arenas mode. Beyond the ranked mode, Grenier revealed that there are new Arenas maps in the works and even more new aspects that have yet to be revealed.

The Apex Legends Global Series is returning in September with a $5 million prize pool and a new competition ecosystem. Xbox and PlayStation players will be allowed to compete with and against PC players in the professional and amateur circuits.

Grenier did not mention any of the upcoming changes to the World’s Edge map, nor did he mention anything about the new Rampage gun, both of which were announced earlier this week. However, the cinematic trailer did show the Rampage, which appears to use grenades as ammo. More will be explained in the gameplay reveal and when the season launches on August 3.

Apex Legends Mobile Perks guide: How do Perks work?
Wraith steps out of a portal in Apex Legends.

While it once was a novel concept, it's now become the standard for FPS games to come with at least a few RPG elements in them. Usually, they come in the form of XP progression systems that gradually unlock new items, cosmetics, and things of that nature. Apex Legends took those ideas and expanded them to incorporate unique heroes called Legends that have their own classes and set of abilities. While it is by no means a full-on RPG -- the better shooter will win the day almost every time -- this extra layer of complexity helped make the game have an even higher skill ceiling to explore.

Apex Legends Mobile, rather than dumb down the core experience, actually adds even more RPG elements. Perks are a new system that adds a new way to further tweak and customize your favorite Legends. This system is brand new to the mobile version, so even those who have been playing the console and PC versions will need to learn how this system works. To get you caught up fast, here's our guide on how Perks work in Apex Legends Mobile.

The best settings for Apex Legends Mobile
One legend kicks another in the face.

Apex Legends Mobile is a fully-fledged and featured version of the hit battle royale game built for playing on the go. Aside from the game being of great quality, the developers also wanted to make sure that this version was just as accessible and customizable as the console and PC versions.

Apex Legends Mobile offers a suite of settings that make most mobile games' settings menus look like a joke. You have way more options here than just adjusting volume settings, and in fact, you can do a ton to make this version of the game just as comfortable and fun to play as it would be on a console or PC. But unless you're comfortable tweaking these settings and you know what you're doing under the hood, it can also be a challenge to get the game running the best that it can. If you're a little lost but want to get the most out of Apex Legends Mobile, here are the best settings to change.

League of Legends’ latest champion is a void slayer
league of legends belveth reveal bel veth

Riot Games has fully unveiled everything League of Legends players need to know about the next Champion: Bel'Veth the Void Empress.
As her gaudy name suggests, Bel'veth is an all-powerful being from the Void dimension and a brand-new threat to Runeterra. Last week, she got a delightfully eerie cinematic trailer where she spars with Kai'Sa before revealing her true form. How she plays in League of Legends matters just as much as her lore, however. Thankfully, Riot Games released a trailer showing her in action on Monday.
Bel’Veth: The Empress of the Void | Champion Trailer - League of Legends
Today, Riot Games unveiled what all of Bel'Veth's abilities are. Her passive ability is called Death in Lavender, which increases her attack speed temporarily after using an ability and permanently after defeating a monster or Champion. Her Q-key ability is called Void Surge and makes Bel'Veth dash forward, damaging everyone she hits. Bel'Veth's W-key ability is Above and Below, where she slams her tail on the ground to damage and slow any enemies while reducing Void Surge's cooldown. The E-key ability is Royal Maelstrom, where Bel'Veth lets out a flurry of quick slashes that deal more damage to those with low health and increase her damage reduction and life steal. 
Finally, Bel'Veth has an ultimate ability called Endless Banquet, which she'll need Void Coral from killing monsters and champions to be able to use. With Endless Banquet, Bel'Veth explodes while transforming into her True Form, damaging and slowing the enemies around her. True Form Bel'Veth will turn enemies she kills into Voidlings that fight alongside her, and she gains increased health, move speed, attack range, and attack speed. Overall, Bel'Veth seems like a ferocious attacker that you won't want to take on alone at low health. 
Bel'Veth the Void Empress will be added to League of Legends on June 9.
