Apex Legends season 13 lets you duke it out in the body of a giant dead monster

Apex Legends has shown off some gameplay for season 13, giving us a look at Newcastle in action, and revealing a new part of the map that’s literally the dead body of a giant creature.

Respawn Entertainment released a cinematic trailer last week officially revealing the newest character Newcastle, but the developer has now given us a look at the man in action, as well as a big change that’s coming to Storm Point. In the cinematic trailer, we saw the Legends taking down a giant, kaiju-like creature. Well, it turns out that part of Storm Point is now that thing’s carcass, just to spice things up a bit.

According to Polygon who attended a media preview last week, lead level designer Jeff Shaw said it was designed to be “a big, stuff, loot piñata.” As well as something to make it more of a competitive map. “We really wanted to do this additively, without removing anything that we felt was important,” added Shaw. While it wasn’t clear if the creature would be some kind of player vs environment task in the first trailer, it’s now confirmed to definitely just be a map change.
