In a brand-new Stories from the Outlands, Legacy of a Thief, Apex Legends developer Respawn confirmed that the young girl that Revenant orphaned in the Season 4: Assimilation launch trailer is Loba Andrade. The talented thief will be added as Apex Legends’ next playable character in Season 5: Fortune’s Favor alongside a new Quests mode.
Like Octane, Wattson, Crypto, and Revenant before her, Loba was datamined prior to her official reveal–leading to fan speculation that she would ultimately become a playable legend in Respawn’s battle royale game. However, there always was a nugget of doubt, given that Respawn included character files for Forge as a smokescreen to trick dataminers into thinking he would be Season 4’s new character.
Loba’s abilities haven’t been detailed yet. However, on the Apex Legends website, Respawn describes the legend as, “Stylish, sophisticated, and resourceful, whatever Loba wants, she takes. Good luck stopping her.” So her passive, tactical, and ultimate abilities could have something to do with finding and/or stealing loot–which would probably be a powerful addition to a battle royale game. In the trailer, we also see her use a device to quickly teleport, much like Wraith, which could be one of her abilities as well. That’s all conjecture though as, again, there’s no official word on what her abilities are.
Loba and Quests won’t be the only new additions in Apex Legends Season 5. The upcoming season will see the implementation of a new battle pass, which will include the traditional collection of items like legendary skins and Apex Packs, but also have brand-new rewards.
