New Apex Legends Hero Is a Titanfall Pilot’s Daughter – IGN
As you can see in the Northstar story trailer, Valkyrie comes face to face with Kuben Blisk and we even learn more about about her relation to Viper, who players might recognize as an antagonist from Titanfall 2. As if that connection to the Titanfall series isn’t enough, the story trailer ends with Valkyrie using pieces of Viper’s Northstar Titan — the Northstar Titan is a type of Titan in Titanfall 2 multiplayer — to create what appears to be a titan for herself.
Perhaps this titan has something to do with Valkyrie’s ultimate ability in Apex Legends. For those eager to learn more about how this hero will play, the Northstar story trailer doesn’t reveal much about that unfortunately. Respawn says more Apex Legends news is coming this week, though, so perhaps we’ll learn more then.Valkyrie will join Apex Legends’ hero roster on May 4. Check out this story about a recent record milestone for the game, where Respawn might have teased Valkyrie in a short clip of video, and then read about what Respawn has to say about Season 9 of Apex Legends, including how it will feature “a ton” of Titanfall content.
