When will she be playable?
It’s unlikely that the Legend will be a part of Apex Legends on June eight. She actually shouldn’t be within the sport earlier than Season 2 begins a while across the finish of the month. Respawn has beforehand indicated every season will solely embody one new Legend. What we’ll doubtless get is a hype-inducing video preview of Wattson in motion, at greatest.
Then if Respawn stays true to type, random little clues could start showing round Kings Canyon to sign her arrival. After all, that’s how they teased Octane, a lot to the Apex Legends group’s confusion. Wattson — or Natalie Paquette — will by all likelihood be a part of in the beginning of Season 2.
What we all know to date
From earlier leaks we all know kind of what Paquette will seem like in Apex Legends. The picture at prime is courtesy of knowledge-miner Shrugtal, who posted it on Twitter on June four.
Paquette is the daughter of engineer concerned with the Apex video games. She appears to have one thing to do with weapon manufacturing for the championship, evidenced by a number of the weapon skins. The Galvanizer Alternator seen under is likely one of the weapons bearing the identify “Wattson.”
We even have some concept of her play type. Wattson will doubtless be a defensive Legend, due to the character of her skills. From earlier leaks — and from Shroud inadvertently evaluating her to trapper Legend Caustic — we all know her major potential will embody putting down Tesla Traps. Area lockdown techniques like this are the bread and butter of a defensive Legend. I’m personally very excited to add one other member to the bunker squad.
Below you’ll be able to see the leaked placeholder icons for her skills:
