New Character – Newcastle

The new character for this season of Apex Legends is Newcastle, a defence-first battler with a powerful recovery shield. As ever, the new character is dripping in lore, with a fully-fledged backstory that points to Newcastle being Bangalore’s brother. You’ll have to wait to face them on the battlefield to see if blood truly is thicker than water. 

Storm Point update

There’s no brand new map with this Apex Legends update. Instead, Storm Point has seen something of a makeover with lots of natural architecture, slightly different routes, and a giant sea creature known as the Downed Beast at its centre. It’s certainly a change from the man-mad madness of other Apex maps, and we’re hoping to see more Kaiju-like creatures make an appearance in the future. 

Map Rotation

This season’s map rotation consists of Storm Point, Olympus, and World’s Edge, with Storm Point newly updated from previous versions.
