Apex Legends Reveals Loba Through New Character Trailer
Get a load of Loba.
If you check the site enough, you’ll have noticed me waffling about Respawn Entertainment teasing the arrival of a new legend heading to Apex Legends when Season 5 drops next month. Today, we’ve been given an actual reveal so we no longer have to speculate on who it is.
The new legend is revealed through a “Stories from the Outlands” trailer. We’ve previously seen Crypto, Wattson, and others have their own backstories explained through these series of videos that also have a really nice art style to them. Loba’s arrival has been foreshadowed since the end of Revenant’s launch trailer back when Season 4 started.
In the video, we’re introduced to Loba, who after witnessing her father’s assassination at the hands of Revenant, the last legend to arrive in the game, turns to a life of crime as a thief. It looks like she also makes some friends who are on the same path as she battles people with melee combat. While nothing seems concrete, it looks as if Loba may have a staff that allows her to…jump further? There also looks to be a device that seems to explode into an electronic blast of sorts.
It seems that she passes the time with stealing while also tracking down Revenant on the side. When she announces that she’s off to bed, a member of her…gang? says, “I found him”. Shortly after Revenant’s face appears on a large screen in front of Loba. Alongside his face are Hammond Industries files and her father’s assassination contract.
Apex Legends is free-to-play on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It’s currently going through a new Battle Armor event as it leads up to Season 5 which is due to arrive on May 12.
