Apex Legends artwork for Newcastle, the Season 13 legend

[Update]: Season 13 - Saviors has now arrived alongside a whole host of balance changes.

I hope you're ready for a bit of a shake-up, because Apex Legends' chunky Season 13 update is coming this May 10th, 2022. It'll bring with it Bangalore's brother Newcastle as a brand new and defense-focused legend, a couple of fun new locations to spice up the Storm Point map, the usual assortment of new skins and cosmetics to collect, as well as yet another rebalance of how ranked play progression works.

Unfortunately, the rumors about the Nemesis assault rifle being a part of Season 13 have ended up not being true. Whether the weapon will arrive in a subsequent update, or if the whole thing was scrapped entirely somewhere along the way, I suppose we'll just have to wait and see.

For now, however, allow me to share with you two of the recent previews. The first one is all about Newcastle and his shield-based abilities, while the second is a more general overview of the new content coming with Season 13. Have a gander, they're quite informative:

Once Season 13 goes live I'll make sure to let you know. For now, however, you can read all of the details about the ranked play rework, as well as the changes to Storm Point, over at the Apex Legends website. Enjoy!
