Apex Legends has just announced a new character will join in season 10, the stylish and elusive Seer. Fans are excited for the new gameplay that drops in a matter of weeks. However, some have noticed a striking similarity between Seer and Montero singer Lil Nas X. We meet Lil Nas’ doppelgänger.

Who is Seer from Apex Legends?

Seer is the newest playable character announced for season 10 of Apex Legends.

He was born of a woman who bore the Mark Of The Moth, and was also born just as an asteroid hit the planet’s moon. This meant he was cursed with ethereal, glowing blue eyes.

The trailer states his eyes are “drawing us all to the flame” and that “everything he touches will be changed”. If you try to look away, or refuse his gaze, you could be reduced to dust.

Seer is an agent of chaos and prizes metamorphosis above all. While all of his powers have yet to be revealed, it seems he does command an army of microdrones.

Twitter thinks Seer is Lil Nas X’s Apex doppelgänger

Fans of the game are convinced Seer has been modelled off Old Town Road singer Lil Nas X.

There are definite similarities with Lil Nas’ cowboy phase. The Panini singer famously wore a fluorescent pink cowboy suit, complete with studded leather jacket and matching hat, to the Grammys.

In the Seer artwork the character is seen wearing a wide-brimmed hat, a leather crop top adorned with gold embellishments, as well as two lip rings.

This is reminiscent of Lil Nas’ gold and black cowboy look from the CMA awards in 2019. He is also well known for wearing crop tops, leather and contacts to create a striking look.

Fans are going crazy for a potential Lil Nas X and Apex Legends collab.

When can you play season 10?

Season 10 of Apex Legends is titled Emergence and is set to drop on 3 August 2021.

The new season of the battle royale game is set to introduce map updates, as well as a new weapon and battle pass. This weapon is called Rampage LMG and fans can access this when the new season launches.
