Being a fanatical Lifeline main, this one really hit home - Apex Legends' healer is getting a rework and her, ahem, necromancy capacity will get a major boost.

Needless to say, we've been anxiously waiting for any news on a potential Lifeline rework ever since Respawn mentioned that her and Octane are the next logical candidates for reworks. Granted, they didn't give any promises, but hey - they'll deliver without giving any - fine with us. 

It just so happens that Apex Legends fans watching EA Play saw Lifeline leave her drone to revive a teammate, while she kept fending off enemies. 

And it didn't take long for the fantasy of simultaneous dual-revives to pop up, which the community ran with until it was confirmed by the game's design director Jason McCord. 

Replying to a fan on Twitter who wanted a clear answer, McCord simply replied with "Yup". Again, we don't mind because Apex's healer is finally becoming a true healer and to our ears - McCord's response is poetry. 

That's not to say that Lifeline is lacking per se, because she isn't. However, being the only dedicated Apex Legends healer, it's a shame to keep her talents all to herself. 

There's no shortage of great news from Respawn these days, and the Apex Legends team is on fire. From becoming EA's main shooter in 2020 and a dedicated studio in Vancouver, to the cross-play endowed launch on Steam and Nintendo Switch that's due this fall - Respawn really seem to be everywhere.

That said, we're yet to see how popular cross-play becomes between consoles and PC. Finding middle ground that would help gamepad users compete against Apex Legends' keyboard & mice players has been a difficult task, but hey - who else better than Respawn to try and tackle it.
