Revenant is the newest character to join the Apex Legends roster
Respawn Entertainment has finally confirmed that cyborg assassin, Revenant, will be Season 4’s new character, replacing James “The Forge” McCormick
According to his bio, Revenant was once the greatest hitman for the Syndicate. But when his programming failed, he saw what Hammond Robotics had turned him into and became obsessed with revenge.
Apex Legends Season 4 kicks off on February 4.
Valve’s TI9 True Sight documentary reveals a new side of OG and Team Liquid
True Sight, Valve’s new behind the scenes documentary of The International 2019 Finals between OG and Team Liquid, is now available on YouTube.
The short movie brings fans up close and personal with their favorite Dota 2 players and offers a rare glimpse at the communication and strategy required at the highest level of pro Dota.
Although the documentary highlights OG’s remarkable victory in a broad sense, it also puts runner-ups Team Liquid in the spotlight as well.
Dendi reveals new esports organization
Former Natus Vincere mid laner, Danil “Dendi” Ishutin, has revealed that his new esports organization will be called B8 (pronounced Bait).
The name was revealed in a heartwarming video showing an elderly Dendi reminiscing over his glory days as a member of Na’Vi — who he won The International (TI1) with.
The name of Dendi’s organization also references his love for fishing, an aspect of his personality that was explored in Valve’s 2014 ‘Free to Play‘ documentary movie.
OG add Sumail, MidOne, and Saksa to the roster
They join returning OG members, Topias “Topson” Taavitsainen and Johan “N0tail” Sundstein.
SumaiL is a former TI champion, winning in 2015 with Evil Geniuses. He will be replacing Anathan “ana” Pham, who is taking an extended break from Dota, as OG’s Position 1 player.
Prior to joining OG, MidOne was Team Secret’s midlaner since 2016. He will take over the Offlaner position from Sébastien “Ceb” Debs, who is stepping back from play to focus on coaching the team.
Saksa first burst onto the scene in 2016 as a member of Digital Chaos during their Cinderella run to a 2nd place finish at TI6 in 2016. He last played with Ninjas in Pyjamas. Saksa will be OG’s new Position 4 support, replacing Jesse “JerAx” Vainikka, who announced his retirement last week.
