Not like the opposite playable characters in Apex, Fade is the one legend to debut with out showing in a launch trailer, an episode of Tales from the Outlands, or an introductory talents trailer. He would not actually have a bio on EA’s official Apex Legends web site. So who precisely is that this man? He does get a really quick in-game bio, however uncovering the thriller behind Fade’s historical past is as much as the gamers themselves.

Fade fears the highly effective Section know-how generated by his swimsuit and “appears like a prisoner” in it, based on his bio. Revenant resents his lot in life (nicely, loss of life) as nicely, feeling trapped in a simulacrum swimsuit he can by no means take off. Given the truth that there was an enormous simulacrum manufacturing unit hidden beneath Cranium City earlier than Loba blew it to bits, it is not a lot of a stretch to think about Fade and Revenant could also be linked in a roundabout way. Wraith additionally escaped from a secret underground lab on Solace, the place she gained her Phasing talents. As Respawn has confirmed that Apex Legends Cell lore is certainly canon, Fade’s presence within the Video games is bound to pique the curiosity of Ash, Revenant, and Wraith.
