Apex Legends Season 5 Adds Quests, A New Game Mode
Just like Season 2: Battle Charge, Season 5: Fortune's Favor will add a brand-new game mode to Apex Legends.
Apex Legends is getting a new mode, Quests, when Season 5: Fortune's Favor starts in May and adds Loba as a playable character. Respawn hasn't provided many details about Quests, but it sounds like it could be a single-player or multiplayer PvE game mode.
"When Apex Legends Season 5: Fortune's Favor arrives on May 12, players will find a new game mode, Quests, that will have players hunting for treasure and answers each season," Respawn writes in a press release. "Those who complete the journey will be richly rewarded."
Though Respawn hasn't confirmed it, Quests could be the "pleasant surprise" for Titanfall fans that the developer teased would be coming to Apex Legends in Season 5. A recent tweet, embedded below, that hinted at upcoming content for Apex Legends included images of what looks like a BRD-01 Automated Infantry Spectre, a robotic enemy found in the campaigns and multiplayer modes for Titanfall and Titanfall 2. If Quests does happen to be a PvPvE or PvE mode, then Spectres could be one of the enemy types.

This is the fastest that Respawn has added a new permanent mode to Apex Legends, as Quests is coming mere weeks after Duos became a permanent mode. The battle royale game launched with only one mode, Play Apex, which became the casual playlist when Ranked released alongside the launch of Season 2: Battle Charge. Duos was the next permanent mode added, implemented during the latter half of Season 4: Assimilation.
