Discover all the novelties of season 13


If the number 13 is never very reassuring, there is no superstition on the Respawn Entertainment side that invites us to discover all the novelties of the 13th season of Apex Legends.

[Mis à jour le 26 avril 2022 à 11h26] After an emotional 12th season that notably presents us with a new game mode with 18 players and Mad Maggie, Respawn continues its momentum with the announcement of the 13th season of Apex Legends. At the same time, we must continue to make this battle royale the most balanced, highest quality and most popular in its category. This new period of play and competition for lovers of ranked games offers us many new things, at least that’s what the stunning trailer (below) suggests. We can see some key elements and in particular the arrival of a new legend, Newcastle, with very special abilities. Release date, content, we take stock of Season 13 of Apex Legends.

Apex Legends Season 13, admirably aptly named Rescue, begins May 10th, preceded by several story and gameplay trailers so we can gauge the extent of what’s new. In particular, we continue to find the introduction of the new Newcastle legend next 28.04not.

new legend

We told you in the introduction that a new legend is about to enter the Apex games, it’s Newcastle who is none other than Jackson, the lost and then found brother of Bangalore. Newcastle is a legend who specializes in supporting his team, with defensive skills we could see some elements of in the trailer above. He has a shield that allows him to protect part of his hitbox, provides the ability to move while protecting injured allies, and can set up a huge defensive wall, likely his ultimate.

New card

Storm Zone will be profoundly transformed with the arrival of the Rescue Season in Apex Legends. The tropical map returns to the forefront with new facilities and bunkers full of loot and likely enemies, but also disfigured by various gigantic creatures that have since been crushed by unknown forces. We imagine that the beaches of the map will therefore be made more attractive by the presence of these gigantic carcasses, which undoubtedly need to be explored in depth. Also note that Respawn has stated that it wants to review the ranked play system to “reward teamwork”. A system that was already modified in Season 11 and that will probably be changed in depth.

It was already requested when the game was released in 2019, crossplay was finally implemented on Apex Legends in October 2020 and has been active on all platforms by default ever since. It doesn’t affect your solo games, but rather defines the type of players you encounter when playing in squads with your friends. If you’re all playing on the same platform, most of the time the players in front of you should be using the same console. If you’re on different consoles, your lobbies will be populated by a mix of players from different platforms. Console players can optionally disable crossplay in the game options.
