Apex Legends announces new legend Seer, more season 10 updates

EA and Respawn Entertainment have revealed more details about Apex Legends’ next season. Titled Emergence, the season features a variety of new and updated content. The biggest reveal was a Seer, a brand-new playable character who received his own trailer earlier today. While the new season doesn’t start until August 3, more details will be revealed at the EA Play event on July 22.

Apex Legends | Stories from the Outlands – “Metamorphosis”

Seer’s trailer featured his origin story, titled Metamorphosis. It tells the tale of a young boy who was said to be cursed. Based on the description on EA’s website, it appears as though Seer will be a recon hero, following in the footsteps of Valkyrie, last season’s new character.

It’s still unclear what his exact abilities are, but Respawn says he “spots opportunities that other Legends might miss, and seizes them in the most beautiful way possible.” The season will feature the usual battle pass, with new character and weapon skins alongside other unlockables.

Beyond the new character, the EA website highlights a new weapon, the Rampage LMG. Developed by in-game character Rampart, the Rampage LMG is said to use “a surprising source of firepower.” Based on the gun’s visual flair, it seems as though it may fall into the “light” category of weapons. No new light weapons have been released since the game’s launch.

The website also promises “major changes” to the World’s Edge map, which players were able to experience in its original version during season 9’s throwback event.

Finally, EA and Respawn are adding a ranked version of the game’s Arenas mode, which allows players to rank up similarly to the way they do in Apex‘s Battle Royale ranked mode. More information about all of these updates will be available at EA Play, so fans won’t have to wait long to see more.

Crash Team Rumble is coming out sooner than you think
Other players attack Crash Bandicoot in Crash Team Rumble.

The release date for Crash Bandicoot's competitive multiplayer game Crash Team Rumble has been revealed, and it is not that far away. The game will launch in just three months, on June 20, and a Closed Beta for it will be held in April.
Video Games Chronicle confirmed this date and additional launch details following years of leaks surrounding the game and its official announcement at The Game Awards 2022. Crash Team Rumble is a 4v4 multiplayer game where players fight to get more Wumpa Fruit than their opponents, clashing with each other in the process. Ultimately, it looks like Crash Team Rumble is trying to spice up Crash Bandicoot's trademark collectible-driven 3D platforming with elements that would not be out of place in a competitive hero shooter. Not much of the game has been seen since its announcement, but we have a clear idea of when and how we'll see it in action now.

VGC's report also confirms that Crash Team Rumble will support cross-play, have at least two seasons with premium battle passes, and let players who preorder play a Closed Beta featuring Crash, Coco, Tawna, Neo Cortex, and Dingodile between April 20 and April 24. The Standard Edition of the game will cost $30 and comes with the first season's battle pass. There will also be a $40 Deluxe Edition, which instantly unlocks 25 tiers of that Season 1 battle pass, comes with Season 2's battle pass, and gives players "Blocky skins and items from the Digital Proto Pack DLC. 
Crash Team Rumble will be released for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on June 30.
