We are less than two weeks away from the release of Apex Legends Season 9, which was officially called “Legacy”. We already know that the new season will feature a new playable character called Valkyrie, and after seeing its origin story in a video earlier this week, today we are seeing it face to face with some of the other Legends. It looks like this launch trailer also reveals a new game mode, but of course, specific details are being kept secret for now.
This is not surprising, because Respawn Entertainment likes to present these new seasons of Apex Legends in a piecemeal fashion, first revealing the new legend and then publishing these launch trailers before revealing all the specific details in the patch notes for each update.
In any case, although Valkyrie is a significant part of this trailer, we can actually see all the Legends in combat here. We also take a look at Ash from the Titanfall universe, which features a new 3v3 game mode called Arenas. Ash’s appearance makes a lot of sense, as this season seems to be geared to revisiting the Apex Legends Titanfall roots.
We don’t know much about the update, other than the fact that it will have Titanfall callbacks and that Valkyrie will be the star, but that information will come soon. Respawn usually publishes patch notes for new seasons just before they air, and that’s when we’ll learn exactly what Legacy will entail.
One thing to note is that Respawn will be revealing the Arenas gameplay on April 26th, so it will start next week for us. Apex Legends Season 9 “Legacy” will be released on May 4 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Nintendo Switch, and we’ll let you know when the Arenas is revealed and the patch notes for the Legacy drop
