APEX Legends has unveiled a new heroine in a cinematic trailer, and she’s the first transgender woman to make the list.
Her backstory, naming Catalyst, was revealed in the trailer as she shares her past with other Legend Ramparts.
Her story briefly touches on her transition into a woman, but mainly follows her story of where she lost her friend.
Catalyst, real name Tressa, has taken on a mission with a close friend to rescue another character, Cleo.
Tressa’s friend was in an accident and she hasn’t heard from her since, not knowing if she’s still alive.
Catalyst’s skills and abilities are still unknown as we don’t see any weapon in the trailer.
This is the first time a transgender woman has been featured as a Legend in Apex.
Bloodhound is the first transgender legend introduced at the game’s release.
They identify as non-binary, and this is how a trans-binary legend was introduced to the game for the first time.
Catalyst is voiced by Meli Grant, a transgender woman and voice actress.
Transgender women were also brought into the game’s development team to give the new character an authentic portrayal.
Despite the announcement and trailer, the official list of legends hasn’t been updated, so we don’t know when Catalyst will be introduced in the game.
Vantage was the final Legend added to the game in Season 14, with Season 15 beginning November 1st.
She is a sniper with multiple options for quick movement around the arena.
Vantage was introduced to the game with a number of map changes to improve her usability as a Legend.
Season 14 encouraged more melee combat, so Catalyst’s abilities could favor melee combat.
We’ll have to wait for more news before we know how strong the new legend is.
