Today sees the release of Season 5 of Apex Legends. With it comes a slew of new content including map changes, a new battle pass and a new legend; Loba. We’re going to start with the new legend, as that’s what is probably most exciting to players of Apex Legends.

Loba is a thief, in fact the best thief in the Outlands. Out to kill Revenant after he murdered her family, she comes with some impressive abilities. Being able to teleport and steal loot from other players, Loba is definitely not someone who should be underestimated.

There is more to season five of Apex Legends though. Players can now access a brand new quest. This nine-week series of PvE quests has players hunting treasure and rewards them with bragging rights, riches and even additional story.

The introduction of Loba also changes up the map of King’s Canyon. Much loved drop sites such as Skull Town have been “shaken-up”, so you may find that your usual drop site is a little different. There’s also a new battle pass with over 100 items such as skins and apex packs.

A nice feature also being introduced is the “reconnect” feature. Ranked League Series 4 will allow players to reconnect to a match should they get kicked.

Are you happy about the introduction of Loba? Her abilities are very powerful, but given her backstory do actually make sense. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, or tweet us @games_bulletin!
