Apex Legends Legacy teaser hints at big changes coming

After several weeks of teasers and leaks, the new Apex Legends season has been officially revealed.

The new season is called Legacy and it is set to come in two weeks, with the release date being scheduled for 4th May 2021.

As usual, the new season comes with a brand new weapon, a new Legend, and the new battle pass with over 100 tiers to grind, full of shiny new cosmetic items.

The new Legend is called Valkyrie. Her real name is Kairi Imahara, and she is the daughter of the notorious Titan Pilot Viper and her main tool is a jetpack which will let her dominate the sky and surprise the enemies from the above when they least expect that.

Valkyrie abilities 

  • VTOL Jets (passive) - hold jump to initiate VTOL Jets, hovers in the air
  • Cluster Missile (tactical) - fire a rocket that explodes multiple times
  • Skyward (ultimate) - Press once to prepare for launch. Teammates can interact with Valk to join the launch. Press again to launch into the air and skydive. 

The new weapon is called Bocek Bow. It is a high-precision bow, with the potential to deal an enormous amount of damage at medium range, but it is very slow so you will need to be precise, or you are doomed.

Finally, there is also a mysterious change coming to the Olympus map. Olympus is being "mysteriously transformed" with some kind of infestation, but we don't currently know much about it, and how will that influence the map in terms of gameplay.

Of course, these are just some highlights from the new season, as there will be a huge amount of other improvements, like balance updates, quality of life changes, and bug fixes.

More details will be revealed over the next two weeks. In the meantime, enjoy the Season Legacy trailer:
