First thoughts after seeing Bloodhound story. Training/attitude towards technology(i.redd.it)
Both died trying to save their little one
I’ve completed Horizon Zero Dawn, but why the fuck are you spoilering it?
Because it's a 4 year old game. It's no different than saying Link defeats Ganondorf.
(Voiced by caustic's VA)
Yoo shit I had no idea
F stands for “For Artur”
Well i meant the letter F because he died lel.
I nearly experienced death...so much to notate.
A young kid with a father figure, part of (or..kinda part of) a tribe that is afraid of technology, goes into a bunker and finds a piece of tech that helps them out in a fight and makes them realise that technology can and should be used... Yeah there were plenty of similarities between the two and I loved it!
Speaking of similarities, how freaking epic would it be if they added a bow class of weapons to the game, or even tested something like it out during this new event?! It could be tested like the Evo Shields, fit the event, and possibly be an addition. If this happened, I’m gonna be a Bloodhound main. The trailer brought me some certain vibes, but this is what I was thinking EXACTLY!
They should add a kind of bow or crossbow, I would also like to see an RPG but maybe that is too much
RPG is a terrible idea for Apex.
A bow/crossbow could work if done correctly.
Tell that to the Archer from Titanfall, apex did say they would add a surprise for Titanfall fans in Season 5, so it could be a classic weapon or a map or some thing else...
I think it could be balanced as a one shot only supply drop weapon
A bow with like 50 body damage and 100 headshot with a reload time slightly faster than the sentinel. Shit would be dope.
Or have the damage/range curve be based on how long you hold it, so close range you can pop some legolas-fast low damage shots and mid-long range try to snipe people with it.
Couldn’t have said it better myself. Think about the possibility for some badass weapon skins too.
There’s gonna be a new event? Or are you saying they should make a new event for it?
There is a new event coming April 7 called “The Old Ways.” It’s Bloodhounds’ new event. Just Google “apex new event” and you’ll find all the info you need. Hope this answered your question.
It did thank you
Even better, it’s can be a new legendary weapon!
Hanzo mains have entered the chat
I assumed there will be a bow because Caustic has bows on his back on several skins
Horizon Zero Dawn is such a masterpiece oh my gosh!
Rost is also voiced by the same voice actor as Caustic! Which is cool.
That is freaking cool!!
I KNEW I RECOGNIZED ROST
He's also the Cartel doctor on Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.
I mean, it's fitting
Finally...I had to scroll this far to find out what game this is.
i really wish we get another one, or at least a spinoff, it is really one of my favorite games
We do, they're working on a second one! It's "around the corner".
Truly amazing game!
100% agree. One of my favorite story games
I'm so excited to finally be able to aim when it comes to PC!
I'm terrible with a controller
I literally bought a PS4 just to play HZD after getting 10 hrs in on a friend's. Sometimes I wonder if I messed up (OW and Apex have definitely lowered my GPA a couple percent haha) but it was worth it for the HZD story
Same dude ! The game was the only reason for me to purchase a PS4
Easily one of my favorite games of all time. It only took me about a week to explore the whole map and get all the collectibles because I straight up could not stop playing. I got like 38 hours of playtime done in that week.
Plus it is one of my platinum trophy games. Edit: Just checked and I almost had platinum after 10 days, I was just missing 2 trophies which I got a bit later. There aren't many games that can get me to grind like that... I wish there was a way to experience games again just like the first time you played it
From the whole "technology bad" to "fucking badass dad with an awesome beard" yeah. They HAD to have drawn some inspiration.
That’s Bloodhound’s uncle tho
And that's Aloy's "legal guardian"
Fatherly figure doesnt roll off the toung as much as "dad"
Ohh I see!
happy father's day, mom
Was I the only one getting god of war vibes from watching this?
dad of boi
Hunder of Bluds
Bathe in tha blooth
uncle of child
Fuck that made me laugh hard
Probably because you saw an axe and snow.
no youre the only one......
Sure, you are the only one, the chosen one, our magnificent snowflake. :)
this post shows that you clearly aren’t
I mean this post is Horizon, not God of War... but it definitely has vibes from both
Clearly you didn't play Horizon
Got that vibe nearly the entire time. Loved it.
Apex Zero Dawn
God of Apex Zero Dawn
Same here. Instantly I thought horizon zero dawn
Stop killing dilfs
This gave me a genuine lol but I definitely agree.
My thoughts exactly but I love both games so I’m not upset
Fun fact: Rost's voice actor is the same voice actor for Caustic!
And that caustic is kinda like a father figure to wattson too! r/hmm?
and everyone thought Artur was the bird
I got that impression from this video, he is reincarnated into the bird, hence helping by pointing out the gas pipe and coming back to land on Bloodhound's arm at the end.
Or it could just be Huginn or Munin
Makes so much sense why pathfinder and Artur never got along since artur despises technology
Omg you're right! This is my head cannon now thank you
Love me some Nordic mythos.
That could explain why it doesn’t like Pathfinder
Artur is still the bird, just named after the uncle.
Yeah I just wanted to say that
Also reincarnation of uncle (allegedly)
the raven charm is literally called Artur. it's named in honor of the uncle.
Ayyy horizon zero dawn, one of my all time favorite games
“It’s the same picture”
If we see it almost the same some how.... With some twist at the last... Though love it , the story was a masterpiece ????
This seemed heavily inspired by horizon zero dawn which is nothing bad! Respawn really delivered!!!
Yep. I thought the same thing. Definitely feels a bit like a rip on Horizon’s concept.
First thoughts are: "For artur" is pretty sad, but so hearthwarming that he still honors his their uncle.
Imagine a new intro quip: “I will win for you artur”
And the epic beards.
People are fawning over this cinematic and rightfully so, it's a good cinematic. But this is literally the Plot of Horizon: Zero Dawn. Kudos for giving credit where it's due because Horizon is an amazing game with an amazing story and respawn is essentially just borrowing it.
But also keep in mind that Respawn had these stories and characters fully fleshed out months before they ever even released the game to the public. The game launch trailer even had octane and wattson waiting in the wings at the end, which means they had already planned out the entire series of events - everything that happened lore-wise so far and will happen for the foreseeable future - over two years ago.
It's entirely possible that the backstory for Bloodhound came from a dev who knew a dev who knew a dev who previously worked on HZD - and the game developer community is a pretty damn tightly knit one. But it doesn't mean that Respawn straight up borrowed from HZD, either.
What? The gimmick of guardian and prodigy kid and nordic mythos has been before HDZ. Its not some breakthrough idea.
I absolutely love the story. And I really hope one day they make a full story line game or some type of show or movie about each legend
Also interesting fact Bloodhound is non-binary
Yep, and not be rude (I love that they are non-binary and that they don't reveal their gender or sex) other legend voice lines have revealed their birth sex. Lifeline's "just us girls" comment that is supposed to trigger when the team is all female will trigger with Bloodhound in the group. Which might be lore that Lifeline isn't respectful.
It was a super neat story but but Aloy >>> Bloodhound still
Yep aloy way better then blood hound
Here to start a fight. Horizon ZD was better than Zelda BOTY that year
Glad I wasn't the only one that made this comparison
Yeah it was almost identical
That is exactly what I thought
That’s what I thought no lie
Exactly what I thought to. The way he said come
So basically what I got from this is that I really need to play HZD again
I'm legit so happy I'm not the only who thought that
my thoughts exactly
An I the only one who thinks Bloodhounds goggles should have been put into the respirator cause I think that the goggles make Bloodhound look super goofy with them on by themselves.
"i'Ts NoNbInArY nOt a GiRl" people these days
Bloodhounds a girl heheheheh
Bloodhound is a girl what ( women are awsome do not get me wrong)
And now we know Blood is a girl.
Finally my suspicions have been confirmed
Low effort post, but mods will let it slide because it made one of them giggle. The mods here are truly fuckin' terrible at picking and choosing what the consider low effort, and this is 100% low effort.
what game is it? (cause it isn't god of war)
Horizon Zero Dawn
Glad I’m not the only one
I thought of god of war with atrues and kratos
Bloodhound why hate pathfinder? it has not been revealed since then
Pathfinder is constantly punching the bird that belonged to Bloodhounds father figure.
The bird isnt bloodhounds death brother?
No. The bird is "just" a bird.
What is this Bloodhound stuff about? Someone fill me in?
Background story video on the official Apex youtube channel, leading up to the Bloodhound town-takeover event starting next week.
Two of my most favorite games of all time. I really love the similarities.
I knew that looked familiar!
i thought of god of war
OMG YES !
I got the vibe of Monster Hunter during that attack to the monster.
I felt like it was god of war (ps4) but remade to look more cartoony
Who was the person who died in the cryo blast at the begining?
I was thinking while watching it that I was getting hella horizon vibes
Blatant rip off
Can I have a link for the story?
An axe is technically considered technology.
I thought I was the only one
Wait is that a vid that just came out? I have no idea what’s goin on here
Here, watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCXOnxM8sdY
after? this was my first thought during, lol
Is this the God of War sequel?
I was like , A L O Y
and when he fell into the beast's lair all I could think of was horizon
I did think that too ngl
They should change bloodhounds ult to just give you a bow and arrow for 30 seconds and if you hit an enemy it goes straight to the knee and staggers for like 3-5 seconds. Oh and like no shield damage just 50% health damage or something.
Thought the sane thing.
This makes me wanna play bloodhound again
Ik I'm pre sure the voice actor is a female
I WANT A NETFLIX SERIES!
Thank god it wasn’t just me who thought that
This was a Bloodhound story?
is bloodhound a girl or guy?
Non-Binary but biologically a girl I think
Glad it wasn't just me haha
Corporate needs you to find the differences between these pictures
This exactly what I thought when I first seen this and big f’s in the chat
It's kinda interesting as rost is voiced by the same voice of caustic and we've known that caustics kinda like a father figure if wattson.
Lol yeah. I was expecting Artur to say "follow"
Thought the same thing
Artur is the Apex Grandad ??
I made this same exact connection!
My exact first thought when I saw those 2
That’s what I thought too!
I thought of Rost immediately
Bloodhound do be slaughtering tho ????
Is that Ellie and Joel I keep hearing about?
Thats an plot twist... Pathfinder is Kratos's son!
I couldn’t have been the only one who got god of war 4 vibes
Yeah the video was pretty cool, but how about all those plot holes?
Literally just took a break from multiplayer games and Apex to play Horizon.
Can we take a moment of silence to respect this fricking animation?
if I get a reply in the next 5 minute I am going to be very fucking disappointed
And they both die. Spoilers if you don't own a PS but you really should by now TF
Am I the only one that thought of god of war
