Apex Legends’ Newest Character Was First Introduced In Titanfall 2

A character originally introduced in Titanfall 2 is coming to Apex Legends as its newest playable character.

Ash is a Simulacrum Pilot from Titanfall 2. Her other identity is Dr. Ashleigh Reid, who was turned into a Simulacrum after betraying her fellow scientists and getting stabbed in the process. Reid has also already appeared in Apex Legends as the announcer for the Arenas mode. Along with the new champion, there will be new weapons like the C.A.R. SMG, which is also a callback to the Titanfall series.

You can check out Ash's full reveal trailer below.

The new playable character is coming as part of Apex Legends' newest season, called Escape. We don't yet know how Ash will control, as Respawn said it will reveal more details for the season in the coming days. The end of today's trailer announced a launch trailer for the new season coming this Thursday, October 21.

While the Titanfall franchise is living on through Apex Legends, it seems a sequel to Titanfall 2 may not happen any time soon. Last year, we learned that no new Titanfall games were in development. Then, despite Titanfall 3 popping up in the GeForce Now leak, Titanfall's community coordinator said Respawn was working on "too many other games" to make a new Titanfall.
