Following last week’s video introducing changes to the map, the new trailer for Apex Legends‘ second season, titled “Battle Charge,” showcases all the fine details of its all-new Battle Pass and its new character Wattson.

Natalie “Wattson” Paquette is the daughter of the lead electrical engineer responsible for the title’s battle royale setting. “Wattson fights in the arena she helped build,” according to the press release. “Destroying incoming missiles, recharging shields, creating fences, and using her pylon to silence fights that get too loud.”

Ranked Leagues have been introduced to the game, allowing players to compete with one another to climb six new tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, and Apex Predator. Each tier has exclusive cosmetics and rewards to collect at the season’s end, and there are now Daily and Weekly Challenges that accelerates the gain of XP in Battle Pass. Battle Pass has over 100 levels of content to unlock, such as newly introduced skydive emotes, more Legendary skins, and the ability to earn crafting materials that unlock additional Legendary items.

Purchase Apex Legends Season 2 Battle Pass now for 950 Apex Coins (roughly $9.50 USD) or purchase the bundle for 2800 Apex Coins ($28 USD), which unlocks 25 levels instantly.

In other gaming news, Steam players who bought Shenmue III can now receive a refund following a recent controversy.
