Apex Legends artwork for the new defensive legend Newcastle

After a brief round of teasers and previews, Apex Legends' Season 13 - Saviors has now finally been released. It brings with it Bangalore's brother Newcastle as a brand new and defense-focused legend, a couple of fun locations to mess up on the Storm Point map, as well as a whole bunch of new cosmetics to collect.

Most importantly, ranked play has received yet another rework. This time around the goal behind the tweaks is to incentivize teamwork and playing for the win, and the various sources of RP have been shuffled around in order to make that happen. The topic's a bit too complicated to easily summarize, so if you're looking for all of the details you can find what you seek over at the recent developer update.

As for what exactly you can expect to see from Newcastle, as well as the new points of interest in Storm Point, that you can find out through two of the recent trailers. Have a gander, starting with Newcastle's overview:

The good news doesn't end there, however, as the Season 13 - Saviors update has also brought with it a whole bunch of balance changes. The highlights are the greatly improved blue and purple helmets, the fact that Fortified legends no longer take reduced headshot damage, as well as the sudden and massive nerf to Kraber's damage and headshot multiplier. You can find all of the details over at the official patch notes.

Have fun with all of the new changes, and here's to hoping we won't have to go through yet another ranked rework in the near future!
