Season 13 of Apex Legends or Saviors is finally on the horizon and it’s set to bring the new legend Newcastle, Ranked Reloaded, Storm Point map changes, and of course, a new Battle Pass.

While Season 12 of Apex Legends kept the playerbase busy for three months, the community’s attention is now firmly fixed on Season 13.

Well, after weeks of waiting, Respawn has finally revealed all of the content that’s arriving in Apex Legends Saviors and it’s safe to say it’s got the community on the edge of their seats.

With Newcastle set to join the roster, a new and menacing POI being added to Storm Point, and a heavily requested rework to Ranked, Respawn is certainly looking to knock it out of the park with Season 13.

The devs finally gave players their first look at the map changes coming to Storm Point and Newcastle’s abilities in the latest trailer.

Season 13 new Legend: Newcastle

As expected, the new Legend arriving in the Outlands in Saviors will be Bangalore’s brother, Newcastle.

Although there were some suspicions surrounding the major leak back in March, they turned out to be true and the teasers in mid-April more or less confirmed he would be the latest addition to the roster.

While Respawn hasn’t outlined his exact kit just yet, during the gameplay trailer Newcastle uses all of the abilities from the leak, so it’s safe to say they are relatively accurate and match his playstyle as a Defensive Legend.

Season 13 Ranked Reloaded

In their blog confirming the launch of Apex Legends Saviors, Respawn has revealed that Ranked Reloaded will be introduced in Season 13.

This will likely be a full rework of the Ranked system that will add a set of heavily-requested features. However, as of yet, no details have been shared about the overhaul, so it’s impossible to know the dev’s exact plans.

All they’ve revealed is that the new mode will be focusing more on rewarding players for teamwork and skill: “Rise and fall through the Ranks together in a reworked Ranked system that rewards teamwork and skill.”

Season 13 Storm Point map changes

Season 13 is set to introduce a brand new POI to Storm Point in the form of the Downed Beast. This incredibly unique POI is set inside the carcass of the dead sea creature from the Saviors launch trailer and is packed with loot.

Not only that, IMC Armories have resurfaced on the tropical map and include a mini-event where players will need to eliminate as many Spectres as possible in a 60-second period.

In return, competitors will receive Smart Loot bins that reward them with tailored upgrades that suit their current loadout.

For now, that’s everything we know about Apex Legends Season 13, but with the update just weeks away, we’ll definitely receive a lot more information from Respawn in the near future.

Rest assured, we’ll keep this hub updated with all the latest information as soon as it’s rolled out by the devs.
