The new character added is called Valkyrie, the daughter of the famous Titan Titan Viper pilot, known to Titanfall 2 players. Its main mechanic is a jet pack that allows the player to reach higher places with greater ease as well as being able to observe the map. above, giving a certain strategic advantage.
But it was very well balanced by the development team. Her equipment makes an extremely loud noise, delivering her position and possibly the entire team, while having no way to shoot with her weapons while flying, only using a set of missiles (which is no small thing).

It does not stop there
In addition, the game brings two other interesting news. The first is the new weapon, which is nothing less than a bow!

The second is updates on maps that have new areas and drop points, which can change the dynamics of the matches and the locomotion of the teams.
The Legacy Season of Apex Legends will be available on May 4th completely free of charge for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Nintendo Switch and PC.
