Who is Newcastle in Apex Legends? Leaked skills and rumors of the legend

Unreleased Apex Legends character Newcastle was revealed in a huge leak back in March, but what are their abilities and are they the Legend of Season 13?

Although Respawn releases a new Legend every three months with the seasonal update, the community is always looking in advance for clues about upcoming characters.

This information usually comes from dataminers sifting through the game files looking for clues as to who will arrive next in the Outlands.

Occasionally, larger leaks emerge from insiders who manage to capture gameplay from the development version of Apex. Well, that’s exactly what happened in March, when the leak revealed nine unreleased Legends, several new weapons, and even heirlooms.

Of all the legends that have been uncovered, Newcastle have received the most attention as their kit seemed to be the most complete and sophisticated.

Newcastle are a defensive legend.

Lore wise, we know very little about Newcastle in the Apex Legends universe other than that he was the runner up behind Forge to join the Apex games in Season 4.

However, after Forge was murdered by Revenant during a newscast, the Syndicate decided to list the Synthetic Nightmare instead.

Although Newcastle hasn’t been mentioned by Respawn since those events, it at least shows that he wanted to compete in the Apex Games, so it would make sense that he would try again in the future.

Newcastle skills in Apex Legends

When it comes to gameplay, the big leak that has been released is on the ApexUncovered subreddit in March showed all the skills of Newcastle.

It’s worth noting that the skills and animations in the clip may have changed since it was shot, it’s even possible some of them were scrapped, so take the leak with a pinch of salt.

Although KralRindo’s watermark can be seen in the bottom right of the clip, the dataminer eventually denied they were the source of the leaks.

Newcastle’s gear, which falls under the Defensive category, revolves around protecting allies from gunfire and reviving teammates in safe positions. Check out the skill descriptions below:

  • Passive: Recover the wounded – Pull downed allies while reviving them and protect them with your revive shield.
  • Tactical: Deployable Shield – Throw a controllable drone that creates a moving shield of energy.
  • Ultimate: Castle Wall – Leap and slam to a target ally or area, creating a fortified fortress.

Will Newcastle be added in Season 13 of Apex Legends?

With Respawn still giving no indication of Season 13, it’s impossible to know if Newcastle will appear in the upcoming seasonal update.

However, with May fast approaching, it’s likely that the developers will start dropping breadcrumbs for the next character in the near future.
