‘Apex Legends’ Introduces New Legend And Weapon During E3 2019 EA Play

Apex Legends Season 2 includes Titanfall 2’s L-Star weapon, Wattson the new Legend, ranked mode – out July 2

The next playable character coming to Apex Legends is not, contrary to what that image ↑ might suggest, the Prince of All Cosmos from some gritty reboot of Katamari Damacy. As previously detailed, the new season will bring more Legendary rewards to unlock; there will now be a Legendary item available every 25 Battle Pass levels, with the level 100 reward being an evolving weapon skin with a special recolored version for players who make it to level 110.

A scientific genius and electrical engineer, Wattson is a defensive-focused character created to counter the aggressive third-party meta in Apex Legends.

EA Play, EA's press event for E3 2019 happened Saturday morning, and the company devoted 30 minutes to Apex Legends season 2. It is fully automatic and doesn't use ammo gathered on the ground, but comes with all it can take.

One of the biggest additions to this season is the new weapon, the L-Star.

Developers Respawn Entertainment gabbed plenty about Wattson during today's livestream, showing how her pylon abilities work.

Her ultimate is the Interception Pylon which shoots down bombardments and incoming grenades, while also charging your teams' shield. However, not only will you be up against some of the best players, but the Ring will also shrink faster.

Wattson is the beginning of Respawn's attempt to establish some more in-depth lore behind the concepts of Apex Legends.

Fans attending EA Play in Los Angeles will be able to go hands-on with new content coming in Season 2, including Wattson and the L-STAR.

Wattson's story is that she and her father helped build the Apex Arena, and she's considered the "kid sister" of the other Legends. Players will gain rewards based on what tier they are at the end of each season.

Rank Mode will have players progress through six tiers, from Bronze to Apex Predator.

Thankfully, we did find out that the Season 2 Battle Pass will include more skins and cosmetics, crafting medals which will enable players to craft a legendary cosmetic of their choosing by the time you reach level 100.
