Today, Apex Legends revealed their newest Legend to join the arena, the shield-toting Newcastle. For its new season, Savior, Apex Legends released a trailer on YouTube that showed many of his shielding abilities and revealed Legends fighting a gnarly-looking sea monster toward the end of the video.
With a release date set for April 28, you don't have to wait long to play Newcastle. The guy's lugging around a shield that can protect other Legends and himself. In fact, you mostly see him doing just that throughout the trailer against a sea monster with other familiar Legends. From the trailer alone, we can speculate that Newcastle will bring defensive versatility to team composition, but we'll have to wait and see how it plays out in-game.
Besides how he plays, the scoop on Newcastle is that he's the long-lost brother of Bangalore, another Legend on the field from the trailer. Fans might remember when he was revealed as Jackson back in the earlier Stories from the Outlands cinematic. However, he was practically confirmed from Apex Legends' latest leak, so it's safe to say fans were waiting for this day and are likely still excited for future characters and goodies on the horizon!
Do you usually play defensive characters in Battle Arena PvP games? Let us know! Also, don't forget to watch the trailer below!
