In a brand new “Stories from the Outlands,” Respawn Entertainment confirmed several aspects for Apex Legends Season 11. For starters, the season is named “Escape” and it seemingly centers around Horizon, her son and the game’s newest legend Ash — the main villain in Titanfall 2, who has been running the Arenas mode for the past two seasons.
Fans who played Titanfall 2 will remember that Ash was actually impaled by everyone’s favorite mech BT-7274. However, now she’s now awake and looking to wreak havoc on those who have wronged her. Ash has seemingly regained her existence, transforming from Dr. Reid into her current robotic form.

In the video, Ash is seen transforming from Dr. Reid into her current form. Her history with Horizon and her son Newton is also showcased. Additionally, problems have surfaced with Ash taking her new form, as she and Dr. Reid are struggling for total control of the mind and body.
While the story elements are interesting on their own, fans are curious to know whether Ash’s abilities are public yet. Unfortunately, it seems like Respawn will wait until Oct. 21 to reveal those, along with the official trailer for Apex Legends Season 11. If leaks are any indication, though, Ash will likely have a Tactical Ability to phase-dash through surfaces, like she was able to do with her Titan in Titanfall 2. As for the rest of her characteristics, fans will have to wait and see what Respawn has up their sleeves.
Apex Legends Season 11 will arrive on Nov. 2, as indicated by the Season 10 Battle Pass end date.
