Apex Legends’ latest season has added the defensive character Newcastle, and a new trailer highlights his launch bundle. It will include a brand-new character skin, Rampage weapon skin, and holospray that all match.
Here’s the tweet from Apex’s official feed, which reveals that the launch bundle will only be available through May 24th:
Although Apex Legends is free to play, some fans enjoy investing in specialized character packs when they join the games.
However, keep in mind that nothing is truly exclusive in Apex. Some fans have been irritated in the past, when the devs used promises, fine print and recolors to create a sense of urgency for skins that later resurface.
Fortunately, things have been more honest lately. But you should still expect that the items in this launch bundle will probably reappear in some way in the future.
Newcastle bundle details
The promo begins with showing off a legendary Newcastle outfit, the “Heroic Command”. It’s more tactical and less showy than his original skin, and the accent colors are neat.
But it looks like more of an epic skin. It isn’t nearly as intricate or personalized as some previous launch bundles. For example, Loba’s spy-themed outfit completely transformed the character, and the skins didn’t resemble anything else in-game.
Curiously enough, the “Military Made” Rampage skin would match better with Newcastle’s default look. But the Rampage looks nice, and the military theme fits with the Bangalore plot.
Finally, there’s a holospray that players can toss in game. This is usually for taunting or boredom, but it also marks territory and makes it harder to see through some windows or doors.
Newcastle’s launch spray is “Duty. Fidelity. Honor.”, which is appropriate but pretty straightforward. The background and overall design are fun enough.
Ultimately, this launch bundle is best for die-hard fans of the new character, who are more interested in celebrating Newcastle or collecting absolutely everything.
