Like her predecessors, Horizon has three core abilities: a passive, a tactical, and an Ultimate. Here's how each of them work:

Passive Ability: Spacewalk

Horizon avoids fall stuns and upon landing. It also appears that you can maneuver with increased air control while falling.

Tactical Ability: Gravity Lift

Horizon is able to elevate or displace players (friend or foe) who make contact with a large spiral of blue light she creates by throwing a device.

Ultimate Ability: Black Hole

Horizon sends out a black hole that sucks in and damages nearby enemies. It looks like grenades can also be thrown into the black hole for additional damage. 

You can check out all of those abilities at the start of the first gameplay trailer of Horizon in action in Apex Legends Season 7:

Horizon lore

Almost 100 years ago, astrophysicist Dr. Mary Summers went on an expedition to find a set of crystals on the other side of the universe that would prove to be the key to solving the mounting climate crisis on Earth she had been researching. Before leaving, she promised her young son that she would return to him. In the official lore video for Horizon, we see that become complicated when her companion on the expedition betrays her and leaves her to die in space after obtaining the crystals they searched for. But Dr. Summers' story doesn't end there. Using another set of crystals she kept on her, she's able to use them in combination with her ship to make it back home, 87 years after her original departure. Her son is long gone, and it looks like the world has gone to hell in her absence, but Dr. Summers has a plan to change that. It's only a matter of time.
