Alter has a few devious tricks of her sleeve

Apex Legends’ new character is ready to send herself — and everyone around her — into an apocalyptic spiral. Respawn Entertainment introduced its newest fighter to join the roster of playable characters to its popular online shooter on Friday. Her name is Alter, and the Harley Quinn-esque legend will bring a set of void-based powers to the the popular online shooter, as shown in her trailer.

She is just one of several new additions coming to Apex Legends as part of the shooter’s forthcoming Season 21, Upheaval. The Solos mode will be coming back at the start of the season and will replace Duos through late June. Meanwhile, the Broken Moon map is getting a significant overhaul, complete with new visuals and the devastating renovation of several POIs. Respawn Entertainment shared more details about all the changes coming to the game in a blog on EA’s website.

Alter seems like she’ll inject her fair share of commotion into matches. She looks like if you combined Harley Quinn the technological savvy of infamous Spider-Man villain Doc Ock. Her main gimmick revolves around void-based powers that allow her to create rifts in the map and use them to her advantage in skirmishes. It looks pretty cool if you ask me — and it’s looking like she’ll use them to inspire as much chaos as possible.

Apex Legends next Upheaval season will be available on May 7, 2024.
