A new Apex Legends Stories from the Outlands, titled “Northstar,” has given fans our first official look at the new Legend, Valkyrie.
Stories from the Outlands is the official Apex Legends video series, which dives into the lore of the game’s characters.
It’s often used as promotional material to hype up new launches like Horizon, or dive deep into characters before events like Pathfinder’s Fight Night.
Now, the latest episode, an eight-minute-long feast, has revealed the new Legend for Season 9.
Who is Valkyrie?
While we won’t know more about how Valkyrie plays until the gameplay trailer and Season 9 launch in May, we do get an insight into the lore.
It turns out that Valkyrie is the daughter of Viper, an Apex Predator killed by Jack Cooper in Titanfall 2. Valkyrie meets with Blisk, appearing to plan revenge for her father’s death, but either changes her mind, or was only planning to impress Blisk in the first place.
“Bold, brash, fiery and fierce, Kairi Imahara grew up in the shadow of her father’s legacy. But now she’s ready to launch her own.” – the short bio from Respawn reads.
Northstar, Titanfall players will know, was a Titan in Titanfall 2, most famously used by Viper, an Apex Predator, in the campaign.
We see the Northstar in Rampart’s shop, near the end of the episode.
We can expect that Valk’s abilities will have some ties to this – such as the much-rumored VTOL hover, just like Northstar.
