Valkyrie has close ties to the Titanfall universe, with her being the daughter of a rather popular Titanfall 2 character - Viper. Her story trailer included a flashback where she took her father's Titan out for a spin, as well as a rather intense meeting with the infamous Kuben Blisk.
A closer look at Valkyrie's kit in Apex Legends is likely to be showcased in some capacity in the launch trailer. Rumors of new weapons and alterations to Olympus have been making the rounds of the internet, but they are to be taken with a grain of salt.
Apex Legends data miner Shrugtal had previously mentioned Valkyrie's kit in the game due to a 2020 data mine. As of 2020, her abilities were:
- Passive: VTOL - Can hover in the air for a short time.
- Tactical: Cluster Missile - Self-explanatory.
- Ultimate: Skyward - Valk and nearby teammates redeploy, launching into the air and skydiving.
By the looks of things, it seems that Valkyrie will very much be a mobile legend, very much in the vein of Horizon, Octane, and Pathfinder.
