Newcastle is a "Mobile Defender" legend expected to release with Apex Legends Season 13. In a recent, massive leak, Newcastle's abilities were revealed.

Since the leak, the developers have also started teasing the legend in-game, with a silhouette image that looks very much like Newcastle from the leak, effectively all but confirming he will be part of Apex Legends Season 13.

From the leaked info about Newcastle's abilities, including its Passive, Tactical and Ultimate, it is very clear that the rumoured Apex Legends Season 13 character will be a defensive legend.

Check out the leaked abilities list for Newcastle below.

  • Retrieve the Wounded (Passive) - Drag downed allies as you revive and protect them with your Revive Shield.
  • Mobile Shield (Tactical) - Throw a controllable drone that creates a moving energy shield.
  • Castle Wall (Ultimate) - Leap and slam to a target, ally, or area and create a fortified stronghold.

Of particular interest is Newcastle's Ultimate ability, which appears to make this new character quite the mobile defender.

What is Newcastle's Apex Legends S13 release date?

Apex Legends Season 13 is expected to release on or close to Tuesday, 3rd May 2022. At the time of writing, however, the developer has not officially confirmed this release date, which should bring Newcastle as a new legend to play with.

Watch the video from YouTuber Thordan Smash below for more rumoured info about Apex Legends Season 13, who seems convinced Newcastle will be the next legend.

So there you have it, the expected release date of the upcoming Apex Legends legend, Newcastle, as well as a list of the leaked abilities for this new character.

As always, remember to take information from leaks such as this with a grain of salt until such time as developer Respawn Entertainment or publisher Electronic Arts officially confirms the abilities and release date of Newcastle.
