New content is dropping with a bang!

Our latest look at the upcoming Apex Legends Season 8 is, well, pretty chaotic.

The 1980s-styled trailer for the new content – dubbed Mayhem – showcases the new playable character entering the fray, Fuse, whose whole thing seems to be that he’s Australian, a bit mental, and really into explosions. Like, he’s basically Apex Legends’ version of Junkrat, right? Oh and – spoilers – but the trailer ends up with him straight up bottling Mirage, which I can get behind to be honest because Mirage is annoying as hell.

The trailer also detailed the wealth of content coming to the battle royale title’s battle pass. There are new Legendary skins for Lifeline and Bangalore, as well as a new skin for the DMR X-1. That’s on top of a new weapon in the 30-30 Repeater and the introduction of gold magazines. It seems that these deal out more damage.

Meanwhile, King’s Canyon has been, erm, “obliterated,” which is certainly a change of pace.

Season 8: Mayhem is dropping on February 2.

Between its launch in February 2019 and October of that year, Apex Legends attracted more than 70 million players.
