Apex Legends Mobile Season 1 Prime Time update: New Character, Map, and more

The wait is over legends!

Apex Legends Mobile is a battle royale shooter developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts. Right from its inception on PC, Console, and Nintendo Switch, the game has been immensely popular across the world because of the fast-paced matches, extremely realistic graphics, and immersive gameplay. Now, Apex Legends has finally made its way to Mobile for both Android and iOS platforms, the game was globally launched on 17th May 2022. And now Apex Legends Mobile Season 1 named Prime Time is finally here after months of anticipation and hype for players to enjoy.

New Legend: Fade

Apex Legends Mobile brings a brand-new mobile-exclusive Legend — Fade to its Apex franchise. As his story goes, Ignacio Huaman was the youngest in a military-tech hunting family. They earned a living “recovering” weapons and selling them to the highest bidder by working together. He was on the lookout as the youngest, keen to show he could take more.

So he signed a contract with an unknown client and bought the suit for him. But it was all a set-up: his family had died, and the suit had teleported him to another world. He’s finally returned, ready to seek justice and redemption in the Apex Games after a lengthy trip. He may not be able to turn back the clock for his family, but on the battlefield, he is in charge of not just his own fate, but also the fate of others caught in his crosshairs. Fade primarily has three skills under his belt:

Passive: Slipstream

Fade gains a short movement speed boost at the end of his slide.

Tactical: Flashback

Fade’s suit rips him backward through another dimension, phasing him to his previous location.

Phase Chamber

Fade throws an activator core from his suit. The resulting explosion phases everyone within the radius for a few seconds making them unable to deal with or receive damage.
