‘Apex Legends’ Reveals New Hero Rampart, Season 6 Release Date – Forbes
Apex Legends has been teasing a new announcement for a few days now, and it was pretty clear what it was going to be. We now have the first details about season 6, including its new hero, Rampart, and its start date, which is August 18, 2020, just two weeks away.
Rampart, seen above, appears to be some sort of weaponsmith, which plays into the focus of this season, which is the introduction of crafting into the game. Materials mean you can actually make your own gear, though exactly what you can make and how remains to be seen. Here’s the trailer, which as ever, is a very good one:
Rampart appears to be Indian, following up Latina hero Loba last season, reinforcing how committed Apex is to its diverse cast of characters. Her default skin appears to be some sort of soccer jersey with some plating and harnesses around it. She has some sort of companion named “Sheila” which I will assume is either a robot or a very large gun. Or both.
