With the release of Apex Legends‘ newest season, Emergence, the meta has been shaken up significantly with the introduction of Seer. The tracker is incredibly potent, capable of seeing through walls and detecting other players by their heartbeats. If that weren’t enough, he can also interrupt actions.
In a recent Reddit AMA, developers at Respawn Entertainment fielded questions about Seer and whether he would be balanced appropriately. Gameplay engineer Travis Nordin responded, “Seer has launched strong, which was the hope. He’s also brought a lot of new gameplay elements to the game (HP bars, interrupt) which has driven a lot of discussion with players, which is great to see.”
That being said, he’s a bit “too strong” and the developer is looking to deploy some balance updates for him in an “upcoming patch.” When asked if this patch would be deployed mid-season, Nordin said that it would be “sooner than that.” Until then, the Seer meta will reign supreme so enjoy it while it lasts.
Aside from balance changes, Respawn is also working on key features like cross-progression and an update for Xbox Series X/S and PS5. While no ETA was provided for the latter, the former is slated to go live in 2022. For more details on the same, head here.
