The new season of the game, Apex Legends Season 13 Saviours, is just around the corner. It will be bringing a lot of unique content to the game, including a new legend.
Apart from the new legend, rank reset, and events, Season 13 will also bring some changes to the ranked mode. However, Respawn has not yet spared us any details of the changes coming to the rank system.
Apex Legends Season 13 Release Date
Season 13 of Apex Legends is set to release on the 10th of May, after the end of Season 12. Season 13 will last for a full 12 weeks (three months). Like always, the new season will bring a new battle pass, rank reset, new events, and much more throughout 12 weeks.
Apex Legends Season 13 New Legend
Respawn recently released the trailer of New Castle and confirmed its launch with season 13. The trailer features the backstory of the new legend and how he joined Apex Games.
The original New Castle was killed, and Bangalore’s brother, Jackson Williams, took his place as New Castle. Both the siblings finally united after three years in the Apex Games.
Apex Legends Season 13 New Castle Abilities
Passive: Retrieve the Wounded
New Castle can drag his downed teammates to safety using his passive ability, and this will save his teammates from taking any further damage when downed.
Tactical: Mobile Shield
New Castle’s tactical ability allows him to deploy a small shield protecting him and his teammates from incoming damage. However, the shield is small and can only protect one to two players at a time. Moreover, this shield does not take any damage, and it only expires after some time.
Ultimate: Castle Wall
New Castle’s ultimate ability builds a giant wall that protects all the players from enemies. This wall has small gaps, which players can use to peek and shoot enemies.
Changes in Rank System
Since the release of the game, the game’s rank system is changing entirely for the first time. Due to the request by the community, Respawn is implementing this change to the system. The main motive of this change is to lower the skill difference between Master players and Predator players.
Respawn has not spared any details about the changes. It will be exciting to see what the new rank system offers.
The new season will also bring other changes, such as storm point changes, a new battle pass, and new events. Moreover, the new battle pass will also feature a new heirloom.
Apex Legends Season 13 surely packs a bunch of treats for all the players. The new legend also looks quite impressive. Moreover, the new legend is on par with the recently leaked data on overall 27 months of game development.
