Apex Legends’ new Stories from the Outlands has revealed Ash as the Season 11 Legend, as well as Respawns latest giving fans more details on her lore, as well as the theme for the new season.

Apex Legends Season 11 has officially been revealed under the name “Escape.” The new season promises loads of new content for the ever-growing player base, including a brand new map, weapon, and Legend.

Although there has been loads of speculation concerning the new Legend, Respawn has officially confirmed it will be Ash, the host of the Arenas game mode.

Their latest trailer revealed some great lore behind the Legend so let’s get into it.

In the latest Stories from the Outlands video on Apex Legends’ YouTube, Ash is officially revealed as the Season 11 Legend, providing more details on the lore of her character.

Although players are already familiar with the simulacrum version of Ash, there is still a lot about Dr. Ashleigh Reid that we don’t know about, apart from the fact that she threw Horizon into a black hole.

Apex Legends Ash lore

Ash tried to sabotage Horizon and the team of scientists that were solving the energy crisis in the Outlands but was ultimately stabbed in the back by Dr. Amelie (Pathfinder’s creator) when Pathfinder interrupted the process.

This leads straight into the latest Stories from the Outlands entitled “Ashes to Ash,” It picks up with Ash in critical condition with doctors suggesting that her mind can be salvaged. Ash is then turned into a simulacrum, a robot with the mind of a previously living human.

Ash then fights in the Frontier Wars with Kuban Blisk, but once she is defeated, Blisk throws her head into some sort of blue energy mass that seemingly causes her head to split into nine pieces that are then scattered across King’s Canyon.

After being rebuilt through the Season 5 questline, she is reunited with Blisk and begins getting flashbacks of her previous life. This coincides with the trailer, which presents the internal conflict that starts after she is rebuilt.

The simulacrum version of Ash sees the mind of Dr. Ashleigh Reid as weak and the reason she was destroyed during the Frontier War and chucked away by Blisk. Horizon seems to have woken up Ash’s mind through a series of codes, believing she was someone else.

This internal battle will continue throughout the seasons, as well as her history with Horizon. We’ll have to see what happens with the Apex Legends character Ash in the future. Still, Respawn has done an unbelievable job so far to give the character so much lore and connection to the developing story of Apex Legends.

We don’t know much about her abilities, apart from some previous leaks. However, we’ll be covering it all on Charlie INTEL, so stay tuned.

Apex Legends devs respond to criticism by adding cheaper Apex Coins option

Respawn Entertainment have responded to player feedback by introducing a cheaper Apex Coins option in the game.



Apex coins in Apex Legends

In response to complaints from Apex Legends players about the high cost of Apex Coins, Respawn Entertainment have added a cheaper currency pack option to the game.

Apex Coins are the premium currency in Apex Legends that can you purchase with real money and then spend in order to get your hands on new cosmetic items for your Legends and weapons.

You may have to purchase bigger currency packs in order to get yourself certain items, and the Apex Legends community has been frustrated with the high cost of these. Now, the devs have responded to this issue.

Apex Legends Coin pack options

Apex Legends players that don’t have enough currency to unlock a specific item end up having to spend a lot on bigger currency packs.The cheapest bundle that you could get contained 1,000 Apex Coins and would set you back $9.99.

This can be particularly frustrating if you only need to use a small portion of the Apex Coins in the pack. Now, Respawn and EA have addressed this problem by adding the option to purchase currency packs with a 500 coin bundle for $4.99.

Now, you’ll be able to get yourself a decent number of Apex Coins without having to spend an extremely large amount of cash. Players that only need 400 Apex Coins to buy something, and no longer need to spend a whole $10 to do so.

The addition of this option will come as a huge relief to players that were tired of paying for currency that they didn’t need for an insanely high cost.

At the time of writing, the Apex Legends developers haven’t officially announced this change, but the arrival of this cheaper currency pack shows that they were listening to community feedback.

Apex Legends characters fighting

Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royales in the world, but when did it come out? Here’s everything you need to know about the game’s original release date.

From PUBG to Fortnite, Apex Legends to Warzone, the battle royale genre has truly dominated the gaming scene for the last five years. In fact, the mode has become so important to shooters that games that launch without one are viewed as missing a vital component.

Each battle royale brings its own spin to the genre, capturing the imagination of players looking for new experiences. For Fortnite, building set it apart from its opponents, while Warzone’s use of class loadouts made it different from anything else on the market.

For Apex Legends, the use of characters with special and unique abilities meant that nothing else on the market could match its high-octane action, and unsurprisingly, thousands still jump on and play years after its launch. But when did Apex Legends actually release?

Respawn Entertainment have dropped a new patch for Apex Legends Season 13, which includes a variety of changes and even interactive objects for Lifeline’s Town Takeover.

In addition to the ranked split which occurred on June 28, Apex Legends has received a brand-new patch for Season 13, bringing a variety of bug fixes and updates to the game.

The Apex Legends 1.99 patch is small, but for those who are interested, here are the patch notes for the update.

Lifeline’s Clinic Easter Egg

This patch is very small, and Respawn Entertainment haven’t actually revealed patch notes for what the update actually brought to the game. However, thanks to dataminer Kralindo, we have information on what the update has done.

One of the most interesting changes in the patch is the addition of interactive objects in Lifeline’s Town Takeover.

In Lifeline’s Clinic, players can now play the drums, guitar, and more. Interacting with these objects will play audio, which is a little Easter Egg for Lifeline’s previous occupation as a punk band drummer, hence her drum sticks Heirloom.

Apex Legends 1.99 patch notes

Although there are no official patch notes for the Apex Legends 1.99 patch, luckily Kralindo has gone through the game’s code and figured out some of the changes.

There may be more changes server-side, but here are all the changes Kralindo managed to see:

  • Some small Newcastle tactical changes, most likely bug fixes
  • Lifeline town takeover interactive objects activated
  • 500 Apex Coins enabled in the store (via playlist)
  • Really small change for the Replicator

That’s all for the Apex Legends Season 13 1.99 patch. For more, check out how the ranked reset works.
