Apex Legends Teases Possible Season 6 Character Ash And New Map
Ash may be coming to the game alongside a new map set in Olympus on Psamathe in Season 6.
Apex Legends Season 5 has seen developer Respawn try to tell the ongoing story of the game in a new way, with weekly single-player Quests and accompanying lore drops revealing more about the world. The final Season 5 single-player Quest is live, and if you have 45 Treasure Packs collected this season, you can play it right now. And if you're excited to see what Season 6 might have in store, you'll want to check out this final quest, which teases the possibility of a brand-new map, as well as the arrival of a new playable character, Ash. If you aren't caught up, here's what to expect.
During a mission that unlocks after completing the final Quest, you'll walk into a vault and see the character below, who's believed to be Ash, a simulacrum pilot and antagonist from Titanfall 2. She first appeared in Apex Legends during the Season 4 cinematic launch trailer. You'll find her headless, but you'll be able to approach and replace her head, seemingly bringing her back to life. By showing up in the flesh (such as it is), this may tease her arrival as a playable character.
Alongside this, players are treated to a dialogue exchange between Lifeline and Octane, which you can read below. Toward the end, Lifeline mentions, "If we go to Olympus." Olympus is the name of a city on Psamathe, which was first teased as a future map in Apex Legends just prior to the start of Season 4.
These remain simple hints for the time being, but with Season 6 on the way fairly soon--Season 5 has only a few weeks of challenges left, and no more Quests--we should begin to get a clearer picture of what's coming soon.
