Apex Legends' next hero is master thief Loba Andrade and she's out for revenge

Arriving next month as part of Season 5.

Respawn has rolled out its Apex Legends reveal box once more, this time flinging the doors open to unveil the game's next playable hero: Loba Andrade, a thief who's out for revenge.

Those with relatively decent memories might recall an intriguing tease that came toward the end of Apex Legends' previous character reveal, when - after some cheeky sleight of hand by Respawn - robot hitman Revenant stepped into the spotlight. Revenant's reveal video concluded with a young girl weeping over the body of her father, the assassin's latest target, leaving many to speculate that she might soon return.

The name Loba, meanwhile, has been connected to Apex Legends for some time, thanks to the efforts of dataminers, but now all the pieces have finally snapped together, with Respawn confirming that, yes, Apex Legends' latest playable character is a grown-up version of the girl we saw mourning her father 25 years previously, and yes, her name is Loba.

Respawn describes Loba as "stylish, sophisticated, and resourceful", and there are glimpses of Loba's life after the assassination in Respawn's latest Stories from the Outlands video above, which sees her grow from traumatised child to renowned thief, ready to take her revenge.

Loba Andrade will be making her Apex Legends playable debut (assuming there isn't another bait-and-switch in store) as part of the game's fifth season - subtitled Fortune's Favour - which is due to begin on Tuesday, 12th May. Details on Season 5's additions are still relatively limited, but it'll bring the inevitable new Battle Pass, Ranked Series 4, plus a new Season Quests system, sending players on a "hunt for treasure and answers".

"Those who complete the journey," teases Respawn," will be richly rewarded."
