Guess who's joining the party? A new Apex Legends character, and possible playable Legend, has been revealed in the newest Stories from the Outlands short, Northstar.
LATEST - New Apex Legends Character
There's been a lot of leaks about Apex Legends Season 9, but they couldn't prepare us for this one.
We all knew that the "Northstar" subtitle for this entry into the Stories of the Outlands series was a reference to the Titanfall Titan of the same name... Now we know why.
The Northstar short plays through a conversation between Kuben Blisk, the founder of the Apex Games, and Kairi, the daughter of a Titan Pilot known as Viper.

The next season of Apex Legends is going to be a big one, either way. The promise of Titanfall content seems to be coming to fruition and there's a lot of new stuff to look forward to with new in-game events, Battle Pass content, and a continually growing arsenal of deadly weapons.
Apex Legends Season 9 is due to start on May 4th, after Season 8 ends. We're still waiting for confirmation about the other details, but we know it'll be worth the wait.
