The next season of content for Apex Legends does not start for another week but developer Respawn has released a trailer showing season five’s newest legend.
The trailer doesn’t give much away in terms of map changes or battle pass content but it does give us a pretty good look at Loba, the game’s newest hero.
First introduced within Revenant Season 4 trailer, Loba is the young girl who has the misfortune of seeing the robot assassin gun down her father and mother. This new trailer reintroduces us to the now adult Loba as she sneaks into what looks like a research lab that manufactures simulacra similar to Revenant. When she tries to destroy one of them she sets off an alarm, causing dozens of robots to filter in to try and stop her. She takes down a few of them with her staff, and even sets off a massive explosion that destroys the factory.
When she emerges from the explosion, Loba reveals that she had a barrier of some kind protecting her, and she even seems to teleport to safety. After the factory is destroyed, some of Apex’s other heroes stand around the wreckage, making it clear that Loba is ready to join their ranks.

Whilst its not clear which of the displayed abilities will filter through to Apex Legends its a sure bet that Loba will be put through her paces when Season 5 launches in a few days.
