EA and Respawn have unveiled the first details of the next Apex Legends season, entitled Saviors.
The companies dropped a launch trailer for the new season, which should be arriving on May 10. Joining the ever-growing roster this time around is new hero Newcastle. The new Legend appears to be Bangalore’s brother, presumed dead during her search for him last Season. Be sure to check out our up-to-date APEX Legends tier list right here.
To the contrary, he’s very much alive, and appears to be a defence based Legend. As usual, Respawn is drip-feeding information over the next few weeks so we’ll have to wait for the full breakdown. However, from the story trailer, we can presume he’ll probably have a small shield for close encounters, which can be deployed into a larger variant to defend the whole squad.
Elsewhere, the chapter page promises some changes to the Storm Front map centred around ‘The Downed Beast’. We’re gonna guess they mean the one taken down in the trailer. The season also promises a rework to Ranked mode entitled Ranked Reloaded. Again, there’ll be more info on this in the future, but we’re told it’ll reward teamwork and skill.
You’ve still got a couple of weeks left of the game’s previous Season, Defiance, to go. Expect more details on Apex Legends Season 13 Saviors then over the next couple of weeks, with a focus on Newcastle promised on April 28. Until then, check out the trailer for yourself below.
