After the release of Apex Legends Season 13, players discover that there is an interaction in the lobby between Bangalore and its brother, Newcastle.
While it may be hard to believe, a new season of Apex Legends already arrived. Season 13, known as Saviors, brought a bunch of new content to the Outlands. For example, the Storm Point tropical map has received significant changes, including Downed Beast, a new location on the island. However, perhaps the most notable addition is the new legend called Newcastle.
While Apex Legends has seen its fair share of exciting legends added to the roster over the past couple of years, Newcastle still manages to stand out. As Bangalore’s long-lost brother, the character brings his own powerful kit to the battle royale. With a defensive focus, he is designed to support his teammates through fortifications and shields. Even as players continue to familiarize themselves with Newcastle and how to use its abilities in battle, some fans have recently caught a glimpse of the lighter side of this legend.
In a post on Reddit, a user known as itslik2002 shared a clip of his time playing season 13 of Apex Legends. Specifically, the video captured a conversation between Newcastle and her sister Bangalore. The interaction began with Bangalore heading out to meet Newcastle in the game lobby. She promptly points to the new Legend and mocks his heroic stance. She then makes fun of the visor he wears in combat. As if that wasn’t enough, she then points to his big belly, suggesting he’s gained a few pounds since the last time they saw each other.
Unsurprisingly, several members of the Apex Legends The community on Reddit took notice of this good-natured interaction between Bangalore and Newcastle. With over 16,300 upvotes in less than a day, many appreciated the small details added to the game’s lobby. Several players liked the interaction so much that they wished the developers would add even more in the future. “This is great LOL, we need more lobby interactions between legends like this,” Penta-Dunk said on Reddit.
In addition to the positive responses from fans, one of the developers who worked on the design of Newcastle commented on the interaction. “Glad you all are enjoying this little roast of brothers,” said the developer known as moyparra on Reddit. They then added that they enjoyed working on the character during development.
It’s probably exciting for many fans to discover these types of character interactions in Apex Legends. Given the pleasure the developers seemed to get from designing Newcastle, it will be interesting to see if players are able to find other hidden interactions between Bangalore and the New Legend. Regardless, season 13 appears to be shaping up to be an exciting time for fans of the popular battle royale.
