With leaks pointing towards Newcastle arriving on the roster and a map update for Storm Point that includes dead Leviathan, it’s safe to say that excitement is at an all-time high for the upcoming season.

As always, Respawn is dropping breadcrumbs for the playerbase ahead of time, with clips on Twitter and now a teaser that players can check out in-game.

Season 13 teasers confirm Newcastle as new Legend

As reported by reliable dataminers Shrugtal and HYPERMYST, the April 7 update introduced a set of Season 13 teasers to the game.

These included a set of banners that appeared near Barometer on Storm Point, Hammond Labs on Olympus, and Caustic’s Town Takeover on Kings Canyon.

These banners offered clues for the upcoming season. By far, the most interesting of the bunch was the banner that read: “The wait is over, he’s here”.

Next to this statement was a silhouette of the now leaked Legend Newcastle, giving the community confirmation that they will be the new face arriving on the roster in Season 13.


On April 19 with the Unshackled thematic event update, another set of teasers arrived in-game and this time they involved the screens in the Command Center POI.

Showcasing the leaked smart loot bins and a set of weapon facilities that appear to have guns for players to choose from, it’s looking more and more likely that the leaks from March are coming to the Outlands.

Finally, a noise seems to be triggering pre-match that seems to be coming from a giant sea creature in the water surrounding Storm Point.

While it hasn’t been confirmed, it’s possible this monster is going to wash up in Season 13 and become a new POI as a dead leviathan has already been showcased in the leaks from March.

This is just the first of many teasers expected for the new Apex Legend, as Respawn ramps up the hype toward a full reveal

So, while you’re battling in the Outlands across the month of April, keep your eyes peeled, as Respawn has got a lot planned ahead of the new season.
