New Legend: Newcastle

    • Drag allies as you revive and protect them with your Revive Shield.
    • Throw a controllable drone that creates a moving energy shield.
    • Leap to an ally or target area and slam down, creating a fortified stronghold.

You can find out more about Newcastle, his abilities, and a general guide here. We also got a recent leak of his Retrieve the Wounded passive a few days ago.

Storm Point Map Update

The main change to Storm Point is the introduction of a washed-up sea creature called the Downed Beast, as well as a brand new PvE feature called IMC Factories.

There are four of these IMC Factories across Storm Point, which could change the outcome of any game.

Map Rotation

The map rotation for Apex Legends Season 13 is Storm Point, Olympus, and World’s Edge. EA and Respawn are also removing the 2-hour rotation block.

Ranked Changes

The latest season of Apex Legends brings some major changes to Ranked, so much so that Respawn is calling it Ranked Reloaded.

The new Ranked mode includes Tier Demotions, Entry Cost Adjustments, and a reworking of the Ranked Points system to better promote teamplay.
