Her kit will comprise of the following abilities:

  • Passive: VTOL - Can hover in the air for a short time.

  • Ultimate: Skyward - Valkyrie and nearby teammates redeploy, launching into the air and skydiving.

This kit is definitely going to change the meta in Apex Legends Season 9, as the trailer featured a unique team composition around Valkyrie.

Pairing her up with Lifeline and Bloodhound will make an excellent tactical team.

The latest trailer also revealed that Ash from Titanfall 2 will come to Apex Legends Season 9 as a non-playable character.

The trailer heavily indicates that Ash will be directly related to the new Arena Mode. For Titanfall fans, this is a throwback moment, as Ash is one of the most popular antagonists of the series.

Ash said, "Legacy of a champion cannot be measured by simple victory, it is measured by resolve, by commitment for a single focus. Absolution, Conviction, Vengeance! It is time to return the legends to where it started. A little underground brutality."

Apex Legends' Season 9 teaser also featured a winter biome that indicates upcoming map changes in-game. This comes after the Infested Olympus announcement and the leaked locations on the World's Edge map.

The new trailer has definitely charged up fans to play Apex Legends Season 9, which begins on 4th May 2021.
