In terms of lore, we know that Newcastle is Bangalore’s (thought dead) brother. Since it’s Jackson, we already know a lot about his past thanks to the Gridiron Story from the Outlands that arrived in January.
However, a group called the Forgotten Families is threatening to destroy his home unless a certain amount of money is paid. So, Jackson or Newcastle, is joining the Apex Games to pay them back and keep his home safe.

Respawn has finally unveiled all of Newcastle’s abilities in his official character trailer and it’s clear the mighty shield-bearer is going to be a force to be reckoned with in the Outlands.
With a kit that’s centered around protecting allies from gunfire and dragging them out of danger, Newcastle is unlike any other Legend on the roster.
You can check out each of his abilities below:
- Passive: Retrieve The Wounded – Newcastle can use his knockdown shield to drag downed allies to safety.
- Tactical: Mobile Shield – Newcastle can throw a controllable drone shield that can be redirected once it’s deployed.
- Ultimate: Castle Wall – Leap and slam to a target ally or area and create a fortified stronghold that provides cover for allies.
We can see Jackson use all of these abilities in the trailer.
Newcastle will be added to Apex Legends on May 10, 2022, which is the release date of Season 13. For everything we know about Season 13: Saviors so far, check out our season hub here.
