Apex Legends “Saviors” Season and Next Character Teased, Ranked Play Being Revamped


Apex Legends’ next season, entitled “Saviors,” is slated to drop next month and Respawn Entertainment/Respawn Vancouver have revealed early details about what players can expect. This season’s new Legend is Newcastle – aka Jackson Williams, aka Bangalore’s brother. The addition of Newcastle was already teased in an animated short earlier this year, so his appearance is welcome, but not hugely surprising (honestly, Bangalore should have known it was her bro despite the mask).

In addition to the introduction of Newcastle, we see the Legends go up against some sort of large beast on the Storm Point map, which players will likely be able to take on themselves. Ranked play is also getting a revamp, with more of a focus on “teamwork and skill.” You can check out the first teaser trailer for the Saviors season and Newcastle, below.
