Proper on cue, with Apex Legends’ present season quickly racing in the direction of its conclusion, developer Respawn Leisure has began cranking the hype deal with for the free-to-play battle royale shooter’s imminent thirteenth instalment – confirming that Newcastle will play a serious position when it launches on tenth Could.
Newcastle, who’ll be Season 13’s newest playable hero (sorry to disappoint in case you had different concepts), is described because the Hero of Harris Valley, however, extra importantly in lore phrases, has a direct connection to a different Apex Legends character – with Respawn confirming Newcastle to be none aside from Jackson Williams, the long-missing brother of Bangalore.
Newcastle’s arrival in Apex Legends is not an excessive amount of of a shock, in fact; again in March, an enormous Apex Legends leak seemingly revealed, precisely it now seems, the sport’s subsequent 9 seasons’ value of unannounced heroes – with Newcastle being the most certainly candidate for Season 13 on the time, given his superior levels of improvement.
Past Newcastle, who’ll be getting a correct reveal this Thursday, twenty eighth April, Respawn has teased a number of other new features coming as a part of Season 13, which is formally titled Saviors. These will embody a Ranked system overhaul that is mentioned to reward teamwork and talent, a brand new Battle Move, and, seemingly, the addition of the downed large lobster thingy seen within the trailer above as a brand new inclusion on the Storm Level map.
Anticipate loads extra on all the above as Apex Legends’ present season, Defiance, winds down in preparation for Season 13’s launch on tenth Could.
