Apex Legends’ Catalyst is a terraformer coming for Gibraltar’s crown

Catalyst has been confirmed as Apex Legends' Season 15 character with a brand new Stories from the Outlands trailer that highlights the real cost of revolution

Apex Legends Catalyst Stories from the Outlands reveal: an image of a person with black hair and black makeup

Hold up, battle royale fans. Apex Legends‘ next playable character has been revealed and her name is Catalyst. We know Respawn Entertainment has created one of the best battle royale games out there, but it feels as though it is continually raising the bar with each new addition to the roster. Catalyst is Apex Legends’ first trans character and she’s coming for Gibraltar’s crown as king of the defensive legends. No disrespect to Newcastle, of course.

Described as an “experienced terraformer and defensive conjurer” by Respawn Entertainment here, Catalyst was a hero long before she found herself with the ability to “manipulate the battlefield” with ferrofluid. However, an explosive accident caused by her over-zealous anti-Hammond Robotics activist friend has left her with a strange new power that we can’t wait to see in action.

In the latest Stories from the Outlands short, titled Last Hope, we see Catalyst trying to find out what happened to the aforementioned friend in a conversation with Rampart. While it is a wonderfully emotive way to introduce the character to Apex Legends’ rich universe, we still don’t know what exactly she’s capable of in-game.

However, it won’t be long until we find out. Respawn Entertainment confirms that the Season 15 Launch Trailer will be airing on October 20. The season itself is titled Eclipse, will feature a new map, and is asking players to conjure their inner strength – undoubtedly a reference to the immense inner strength shown by Catalyst and LGBTQ+ people everywhere.
