Apex Legends “Defiance” Season and Mad Maggie Teased, Characters to be Given Away Free


Apex Legends’ next season, entitled “Defiance,” will drop early next month, and Respawn Entertainment/Respawn Vancouver have revealed early details about what players can expect. This season’s new Legend is Mad Maggie – essentially a female version of Mad Max – a badass rebel fighting for her planet Salvo. For her, fighting in the Apex Games is actually supposed to be her death sentence. You can check out a quick animated short featuring Mad Maggie, below.

In addition to Mad Maggie, it seems Defiance will also offer an update to the Olympus map, a new limited-time mode, and more. Get early details, below.

  • New Legend: Mad Maggie - For all her crimes, Mad Maggie's been condemned to fight to the death in the Games. But just who's being punished here?
  • New LTM: Control - For the first 3 weeks of Defiance, see whether you can handle the madness in the new Control mode. Select your loadout and drop in to a 9v9 experience where teams battle to hold control points with infinite respawn.
  • A New View From Olympus - Something's different about the floating city...but what?
