Apex Legends Season 2 details: Battle Charge, Wattson and L-Star revealed

Apex Legends

"Apex Legends" is getting its 10th Legend, a new weapon, a new mode, and an improved battlepass, as detailed during EA Play on Saturday.

The weapon will only be attainable from care packages.

A scientific genius and electrical engineer, Wattson is a defensive-focused character created to counter the aggressive third-party meta in Apex Legends. Running throughout June 2019, the Apex Legends Legendary Hunt event offers players a chance to earn special skins, bonus XP, and badges. It is fully automatic and doesn't use ammo gathered on the ground, but comes with all it can take.

The new gun: it's the L-Star. Her tactical ability involves electric fences for building defensive perimeters that damage and slow other players, while her ultimate ability, Interception Pylon, places an electrified pylon that destroys incoming ordnance and refills her teammates' shields. Natalie "Wattson" Paquette is considered to be a genius engineer, at least according to her father who narrates her introduction. If any enemies pass through the fence, it'll ping your team of their location.

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

A ranked mode is coming to the game which lets you progress through six tiers, but you will also cap out.

Of course, Apex Legends Season 2 will have more content that you can unlock as you work your way through the ladder.

The battle pass is now challenge based, not timed based as the first season.

There's also a couple "big things" coming to Kings Canyon during Season 2.

EA forecast in May that net bookings, or the game publisher's adjusted revenue, from Apex Legends will be in the range of $300 million to $400 million in fiscal year 2020, adding that the forecast did not assume any contribution this year from future mobile versions or games in the Chinese market. Players can also join a new Apex Elite Queue, where they compete against Apex Legends top competitors and prove they're the best of the best.
