Respawn Announces New Legend Valkyrie for Apex Legends

Respawn has announced a new legend, Valkyrie, will be joining the roster for Season 9.

Developer Respawn has announced a new legend will be joining the roster of their hit battle-royale Apex Legends. Valkyrie is the latest to be added to the retinue of heroes and has an origin story closely tied to the world of Titanfall. Respawn revealed Valkyrie and her background in Northstar, a new animated short in the Stories from the Outlands series.

Valkyrie, also known as Viper as a child, is shown to be connected Kubin Blisk through her father. 

The lore trailer also seems to confirm what we've been hearing of late regarding more of Titanfall being added into Apex Legends. Though the video doesn't confirm any connections outright, it does imply that Valkyrie could potentially be the first Legend we see with the ability to call on a Titan, something that could greatly affect Apex Legends' gameplay. 

Either way, we'll have to wait and see, as we should expect more official news to be just around the corner. May 4 is when Season 9 of Apex Legends will launch, and it will also bring the Bockek Bow into the fray.
