Apex Legends reveals new character Valkyrie
Respawn Leisure have revealed that the following character leaping into the Apex Legends area is Valkyrie. She’s the daughter of Viper, a villainous Titan pilot you would possibly recognise from Titanfall 2. In a brand new Tales From The Outlands video, we get a glimpse of Valkyrie as a child, taking a pleasure journey in papa’s massive Northstar mech. Unfortunatley, it appears Apex nonetheless is not getting correct mechs, however Valkyrie shall be bringing a number of elements of Northstar into the battle royale together with her when the brand new season begins on Might 4th.
The animation kicks off with Kairi “Valkyrie” Imahara recovering what’s left of her dad’s mech, and utilizing it to get an viewers with Kuben Blisk (one other antagonist in Titanfall 2, and the man that began the Apex Video games). Valkyrie blames him for Viper’s loss of life and desires to get revenge, although (spoilers!) it is you who murders him in Titanfall 2, however uh, possibly do not inform her that.
As an alternative of homicide she settles for an invitation to change into an Apex Legend, then heads off to Rampart’s workshop to cut up her dad’s mech – presumably to show it into one thing she will take together with her into the Apex Video games. Judging from the artwork of her within the header of this submit, that’ll be an enormous rocket-firing jetpack of kinds. She appears a bit like Pharah from Overwatch.
That is about all we all know of Valk up to now, although the Apex web site alludes to some adjustments we’ll see within the area subsequent season. For starters, the Olympus map shall be “infested” with “roots and pure growths” strangling town. We’ll additionally be capable to get our fingers on the Boeck Bow, which is, nicely, a giant mechanical bow. It feels like Season 9 might be going for a little bit of a wilderness survival theme, I am excited.
