The launch trailer is actually a continuation of the recent video that Respawn Entertainment released yesterday. After seemingly rescuing Mara and her mother Xenia from the ice planet of Págos, it seems they went straight into jail for Xenia’s criminal status. Mara is now being taken away and wants to get her mother out of jail. She finds out there is a big competition going on, the Apex Games, where the winner gets rewarded with riches and if she does win it, she could get her mother out of there.
Join Apex Games, Win Lots of Money
Mara joins the competition and teams up with certain Legends like Fuse and Horizon. At first, it seems she does not know how to use her pistol as it does not work as intended to be and complains to her teammates. She later finds out she has a certain affinity to another type of gun, the sniper rifle. After using that, she is quite the sharpshooter and becomes the winner of a round.
Mother Has Other Plans
Mara, now known as Vantage, gets to speak out on the live camera saying she is doing this for her mother, but it seems her mother actually has other plans for her.
Apex Legends Hunted launches on August 9, 2022. The game is already available on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
