Watson is the name and defending is their game.
Apex Legends Season 2

The second season, called Battle Charge, for Apex Legends was detailed today at EA Play. Respawn announced a number of new additions coming to their still fairly popular battle royale game, including the addition of a new playable character, Watson.

This all kicks off on July 2. This is when the new season will begin in addition to the new Battle Pass release, and the addition of Watson to the roster. Watson was introduced today via an animated short.

Natalie “Wattson” Paquette is a familiar face in the Apex Games: daughter of the Games’ lead electrical engineer, she devoured every book she could on the subject, and grew into a skilled engineer herself. Eventually, she was commissioned to build the Apex Games’ Modified Containment Ring. Her father tragically died the day it was revealed, but at her lowest moment, a group of competitors invited her to return to the arena with them. They became her new family.

She now fights in the arena she helped build, destroying incoming missiles, recharging shields, creating fences, and using her pylon to silence fights that get too loud. Nobody knows the arena better than Wattson, and she’s able to change the game.
The new season also adds in the L-STAR energy machine gun, a weapon that Titanfall 2 players are probably quite familiar with.

The "improved" Battle Pass experience for Season 2 includes:

  • Daily and Weekly Challenges
  • A reduction in time to Battle Pass level 100
  • Three additional Legendary skins added to the rewards track
  • Three entirely new content categories replacing badge and stat tracker rewards
  • Enough Crafting Metal rewards from the full reward track to craft a Legendary item
Right now, there is a "Legendary Hunt" event going on in the game. This will run through to June 18 and include limited-time rewards, double XP events, and more.
