Apex Legends players will be excited to know that Respawn Entertainment has finally announced the fifth season for the game. The announcement was made through an official blog post in which EA shared some important details about it.
Apex Legends Season 5 Confirmed
During the past few weeks, many rumors and speculations surfaced about what Apex Legends season 5 is going to feature. Some claimed that it will feature multiple legends, some thought that Ash will be the next legend, while others simply pointed towards a new map. However, the official blog post has cleared all these rumors.
As per the blog post, Apex Legends season 5 is called Fortune’s Favor. Just like the previous seasons, this one is also going to bring a new legend to the game along with a new battle pass, ranked series, and much more.
Loba Confirmed As New Legend
To begin with, it has been finally confirmed that Loba will join the game’s list of legends in season 5. This was expected considering many leaks pointed towards her arrival. In addition to this, Respawn was also teasing her arrival through different in-game teasers. The developers have also a profile video for her in which we can see that she is now a professional thief. However, aside from stealing things, her main goal is to take revenge from the Revenant.
The blog post failed to talk about the abilities of Loba. However, previous leaks suggested that her abilities are going to focus around stealing and seeing nearby loot. While she hasn’t made her way to the game yet as a playable character, Loba has made her debut as she can be seen walking behind characters in the Lobby.
New Season Quests
Apex Legends season 5 is bringing something new to the game. The devs have confirmed the addition of Season Quests. The official description of these quests asks players to hunt for treasures and answers, and those who will find them will get “richly rewarded.” This means that you can expect to get your hands on some amazing skins through these quests. Who knows, maybe Respawn might get generous and even present an Heirloom set as the final reward.
Ranked Series 4 And Battle Pass
Season 5 is going to introduce Ranked Series 4, and it will feature new rewards. Players will once again start from the bottom to become the best Apex Legends player in the world. There is also going to be a brand new battle pass which will feature over 100 items such as Legendary Skins, Apex Coins, and much more.
Apex Legends season 5 will begin on May 12, 2020. The new season will also bring the Reconnect Feature to the game.
