Apex Legends Season 5 – Fortune's Favor - introduces the new Female Legend: Loba, Season Quests of PvE flavour, a bountiful new Battle Pass, and more!
Thats right, were headed back to Kings Canyon for another season, but this times a little different. Say Goodbye to SkullTown & Thunderdome, and hello to a few new locations, loot changes, skins, modes and Loba - The new Master Thief Legend.
LOBA - MASTER THIEF, SEEKING REVENGE
Loba had the to watch her father die by the hand of Revenant - The Legend introduced in Season 4. Since then she has carved her path as a take-what-i-want master thief, with the ultimate goal of finding Revenant, and killing him. What she brings to the table are new abilities sure to tickle the pickle of long time Apex Lovers and in particular the Loot Goblins among us. From what we've seen so far we assume:
Her Staff is her Ultimate, giving her the ability to grab any loot from a limited surrounding area - this may also apply to player boxes too!
She has the continually charging trans-locate ability to blink around the map similar to Pathfinders quick Zipline.
possibly a passive ability to find loot through walls - (rumour)

“The Broken Ghost”
Season 5 introduces our first Quest to Apex Legends - a season-long search to find nine pieces of a mysterious artifact.
Collect daily Treasure Packs in competitive* matches of Apex Legends - max one per day - to unlock Rewards and new Hunts for the missing pieces.
Go on weekly Hunts into Kings Canyon at Night to retrieve pieces of the artifact. Brave the dangers solo or with your squad and make it back alive. While you can always join in on Hunts, you’ll only get the Rewards if you’ve unlocked the mission yourself.
Succeed in each hunt to earn more Rewards and unlock serial chapters that tell the Story of “The Broken Ghost”. What is this artifact, and why does everybody from the Apex Legends to Hammond Robotics want to get their hands on it?
Recover all nine pieces of the relic to unlock even more rewards, dive into the past, and uncover a secret that the Outlands might not be ready for.
* Includes Duos, Trios, Limited-Time Modes and Ranked.
With a new season obviously comes a new Battlepass, chock full with new skins, poses, cards and of course loot boxes and Apex Coins.
We dont know alot about how this seasons Battlepass looks right now, but the Trailer gave a glimpse at some of the new skins we will have on offer
