Apex Legends’ excellent new 3v3 Arenas mode has arrived

Today, Respawn adds some of the most exciting stuff to Apex Legends that I think they’ve added yet. Call me over-excited if you will, but I’ve tried the new 3v3 Arenas game mode and it’s well good. I’ve also had a go at the new walking Titanfall reference, Valkyrie, and she has a delightfully satisfying jetpack. A jetpack! All the best games have jetpacks. Both of these excellent additions arrived today in Apex’s ninth season, Legacy, alongside a new weapon, new maps, and a whole lot of balance changes. Read more

Apex Legends new character is the daughter of a Titanfall 2 boss

Respawn Entertainment have revealed that the next character jumping into the Apex Legends arena is Valkyrie. She’s the daughter of Viper, a villainous Titan pilot you might recognise from Titanfall 2. In a new Stories From The Outlands video, we get a glimpse of Valkyrie as a kid, taking a joy ride in papa’s big Northstar mech. Unfortunatley, it seems Apex still isn’t getting proper mechs, but Valkyrie will be bringing a few parts of Northstar into the battle royale with her when the new season starts on May 4th. Read more
