APEX LEGENDS: SEASON 5
Apex Legends has been Respawn Entertainment and EA’s vital title in the genre of Battle Royale since it’s release on 4th February 2019. It has faced a lot of UPS and DOWNS throughout its a journey of one year being live. Even though it faced a little controversy back in August 2019, it somehow managed to live up to player’s expectations still in 2020.
Last Season’s Summary
Season 4 “ASSIMILATION” update of the game was live on 4th Feb 2020 which brought a bunch of new features along with a new Legend ‘Revenant’, a new powerful weapon ‘Sentinel’ and major map changes. In summary, the update was well received.
What’s new in Season 5?
As far as the story went, we saw that Revenant killed Forge (who was said to be a new playable character in season 4) and his wife in the trailer (that you could watch here). But Forge was able to save his daughter from the wraith of Revenant’s cruelty. And in the upcoming Season 5 “Fortune’s Favor” we find the comeback of Forge’s daughter Loba Andrade as a new playable Legend in the game. Who came backtracking her parent’s murderer back in King’s Canyon to sought revenge.
New Legend: Loba Andrade
It’s not 100% confirmed what the actual abilities of Loba will be but according to Developers, she will be resourceful. The sneak peeks of abilities that we got to see in the trailer we might have an idea what they’ll be.
Passive Ability: Her story has been described as ‘Legacy of a Thief’, so her passive ability will be somewhat related to low profile and great agility.
Tactical Ability: As seen in the trailer at 1:33 minute mark, we can see Loba putting a cane-like structure on the ground with a statement ‘Shop’s open for business’ and players were seen holding their weapon around it. This may have something to do with weapon upgrade? Well, this is just a theory until we have actual information about it we can’t be certain.
Ultimate Ability: And as seen on the 1:42 minute mark in the trailer, we can see her using her ultimate ability that is close to ‘Teleportation’. This will allow her to teleport from one place to another mid-range area in split seconds.
PvE Season Quest
There will be a hunt again mysterious creatures that the player has to complete within a specific time frame. On completion, the player will receive some rewards.
Every new season of Apex brought along major map changes. This time with Loba’s explosive entrance, King’s Canyon took a huge makeover. Skulltown and Thunderdome sank into the ocean while a new area named ‘Salvage’ has emerged surrounding great risks and rewards. Salvage resides by the newly formed bay on the map.
Battle Pass and Legend Skin
New battle pass will let players have instant access to over 100 exclusive items like the newly included Legendary Hemlock Retrofitted skin along with the three new rare legends skin for Mirage, Bangalore, and Revenant and much more battle pass content making Season 5 debut!
Ranked Series 4
If you think you got what it needs to be the Apex Champion then drop in Ranked games with your squad to take a competitive approach and take the victory.
We personally have enjoyed Apex Legends from its launch to the current date and are excited about the new Season update. We also hope there will be few updates regarding some minor bugs in the game. Overall we are very positive about “Fortune’s Favor”. According to our calculations, we can expect the new season to arrive on 12th May 2020.
