Apex Legends Season 13 Patch Notes Out: Brings New Legend Newcastle, Map Update and More

Season 13: Saviors will introduce several new POIs as well as the games' newest Legend.

Apex Legends Saviors Patch Notes

Apex Legends Season 13 Launches later tonight, May 10, and Respawn has just released the patch notes for the new update. The spotlight in this new update has been, of course, on Newcastle – the newest Legend joining the games.

Newcastle is a Defensive legend that can drag downed allies to safety and protect them with his Revive Shield. The rest of his kit revolves around the use of a variety of his shields, including a Mobile Shield, a controllable drone that creates a moving energy shield.

Other major changes in Apex Legends Season 13 include a “monstrous” update to Storm Point. The new POI features a washed-up creature known as the Downed Beast and makes for a pretty interesting combat zone for players.

ULTIMATE: CASTLE WALL

Leap to an ally or target area and slam down, creating a fortified stronghold.

The new update includes a number of other QOL and bug fixes such as one where players inside Bangalore’s smoke would unintentionally get aim assist on targets outside of the smoke. World’s Edge gets a bit of makeover love too as certain parts of the map will now have minor adjustments that could potentially make a lot of difference.

These include redesigned windows at Lava Siphon’s Lava Pit. Gondola loot has also been tweaked with chances of finding high-tier armour in them notably reduced. Climatizer and Lava Siphon will still remain as High Tier Loot POIs.
