New Legend : Fade

The latest Legend in the game comes in the form of Fade.

With an amazing backstory revolving around his family who used to ‘recover’ special weapons and sell them to the highest bidders who later got killed after Fade took a contract with a mysterious client, Fade is the latest Legend being dropped into World’s Edge. Here are his abilities :

Passive : Slipstream

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

Tactical : Flashback

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

Phase Chamber

When activated, Fade throws and activator core from his suit. The resulting explosion makes everyone in it’s radius phase out and unable to deal or receive damage.

New GameMode : Advance Training Level

New Arena Map : Overflow

A new arena map is also being brought into the fix in the form of Overflow which is said to have tight corners, lanes and amazing flanking opportunities. You would also be dead if you jump into the lava so be careful where you press your spacebar or you might get burnt!

New Feature : Team Fill

You’ve been there, you’ve had one of those teammates who simply quits in the middle of a game and you are left feeling frustrated. Well Ea is going to take care of that now by adding a new player in case one disconnects. This will however, only work in the Team Deathmatch mode.
