Only a week ago, we had our chance to peek at Apex Legends Season 5 and its new legend with a short trailer. Now, with less than a week remaining until the launch of Season 5, Respawn and EA have brought us a gameplay trailer. In this trailer, we see Loba’s abilities shown off as well as the changes coming to the King’s Canyon map.
Loba’s abilities have a wide range of uses. She can use one of her devices and steal all the loot in a nearby location in addition to another ability which allows her to spot loot behind walls. She also has a disc that she can throw and teleport to, giving her an edge in flanking enemies. You can check out the new Apex Legends Season 5 gameplay trailer below.
New PVE Challenge
Aside from all the usual changes and additions, which you can find here, Apex Legends Season 5 includes the game’s first-ever PVE challenge mission. Here is what we know so far about this challenge:
New Legend Loba has arrived to hunt for answers — and revenge. Discover hidden secrets and rewards as you take on waves of prowlers in the all-new PvE Season Quest. Explore a Kings Canyon that has been transformed by Loba’s explosive entrance. Skulltown and Thunderdome have fallen into the ocean, while a dangerous new area, Salvage, sits in the newly formed bay. Season 5 introduces our first Quest to Apex Legends – a season-long search to find nine pieces of a mysterious artifact.
- Collect daily Treasure Packs in competitive matches of Apex Legends – max one per day – to unlock Rewards and new Hunts for the missing pieces.
- Go on weekly Hunts into Kings Canyon at Night to retrieve pieces of the artifact. Brave the dangers solo or with your squad and make it back alive. While you can always join in on Hunts, you’ll only get the Rewards if you’ve unlocked the mission yourself.
- Succeed in each hunt to earn more Rewards and unlock serial chapters that tell the Story of “The Broken Ghost”. What is this artifact, and why does everybody from the Apex Legends to Hammond Robotics want to get their hands on it?
- Recover all nine pieces of the relic to unlock even more rewards, dive into the past, and uncover a secret that the Outlands might not be ready for.
Apex Legend is available on Playstation 4, Xbox, and PC. Season 5 begins May 12. Stay tuned for more gaming news and contact us at [email protected] for suggestions.
