We kind of knew it was coming, but Apex Legends’ next hero, Loba, has been officially confirmed and will be joining in Season 5.
Apex Legends’ next season is right around the corner, which means it’s time for us to see a new character added to the roster, namely master thief Loba.
We don’t have any gameplay footage of her yet but Respawn uploaded a new entry in its Stories From The Outlands video series, which are animated shorts used to flesh out the world of Apex Legends.
It was one of these videos that Respawn used to trick everyone that the character Forge would be made playable before suddenly killing him off.
The trailer confirms what theorists and dataminers had already figured out: Loba is the little girl that we saw in the last character trailer that introduced Revenant.
We learn that following her parents’ murder at Revenant’s hands, she was adopted but still scarred by the events, growing up to become a stylish and sophisticated master thief (though she can’t be that good if we all saw her coming).
Come the end of the video, a friend of Loba’s reveals that he has found Revenant, showing that Loba hasn’t forgotten what happened and is clearly out for revenge, something that the Apex Legends Twitter account was teasing leading up to her announcement.

Season 5 sounds like it could be thematically appropriate for a thief, having been dubbed Fortune’s Favour. Although details on the official website are very limited at the moment.
Aside from Loba’s inclusion, there will be a new battle pass that will come with the usual new items, like skins, but the most intriguing part is the inclusion of quests.
‘Hunt for treasure and answers in the new Season Quest. Those who complete the journey will be richly rewarded,’ reads the site.

We can only speculate, but it’s clear that completing this will earn you more content. Maybe the Season Quest will have a heavy focus on story, allowing players to experience Loba’s quest for revenge first-hand?
We will have to wait until Season 5 begins to find out, which is fortunately not that long as it’s set to begin in only a couple of weeks on 12 May.
Apex Legends is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
