Apex Legends debuted in February 2019 with a cast of 8 different characters, or Legends, to choose between. Each with their own, unique abilities, the purpose of the game is to compile a team of three different Legends to beat out the rest and win the game. Since then, Respawn Entertainment has introduced one other Legend, making the current total nine \u2013 but there\u2019s a new one on the horizon.\r\n\r\nApex just released the Legendary Hunt Event which includes tons of new challenges, an upcoming double XP weekend, and even a special gaming queue for the best players on the game. Shortly following this, the official Apex Legends twitter page reminded their followers about the live event taking place with EA Play on June 8th, adding, \u201cDon\u2019t forget to mark your calendars. It\u2019s sure to be\u2026electrifying.\u201d\r\n\r\n[embed]https:\/\/twitter.com\/PlayApex\/status\/1136679185634680832[\/embed]\r\n\r\nAccompanying the tweet is a GIF that flashes to a character\u2019s gloved hands generating electricity between them. While this is the first time Apex has officially teased anything about a new Legend, it\u2019s not the first time we\u2019ve heard about this shocking character.\r\n\r\nFor months, the name \u201cWattson\u201d has been buzzing around the Apex Legends community, initially supported by data that players were pulling from the game hinting at the character. A month ago, a Reddit post by the Respawn Community Manager gave players confirmation that Season 2 would introduce several things, including a new Legend.\r\n\r\nSince then, there has been a multitude of leaks surrounding Wattson, primarily focused on the abilities that she will bring to King\u2019s Canyon. Based on what has been released directly from Apex Legends and the data discovered through various sources around the Internet, Wattson is gearing up to electrify gameplay with lightning-based skills. While not everything about her abilities is completely clear, by filing through game coding, it was leaked that her ultimate is called \u201ctesla trap,\u201d which would make her the second Legend with a trapping ability.\r\n\r\nOn May 12th, professional gamer and Twitch streamer, Michael Grzesiek, better known online as Shroud, shared his thoughts on Wattson. Early in the year, Shroud was asked by Apex Legends to test out some new features and characters before they were released to the public. When asked if he liked playing as Wattson by a viewer, Shroud responded with, \u201cNo, I hated it\u2026I didn\u2019t hate it. I just didn\u2019t like it, that\u2019s all. It\u2019s like me playing Caustic. I don\u2019t hate him, I just don\u2019t like him.\u201d\r\n\r\nWhile Shroud might not be a huge fan of the 10th Legend coming to Apex Legends, the electrifying character has continued to generate a lot of excitement, and it shouldn\u2019t be too long before players can test Wattson out for themselves.
