One thing all gamers know about the developers at Respawn Entertainment is that they don't do anything by accident. They are consistently creative, especially when it comes to bringing characters from different games together.
Devs at Respawn have been hinting for some time now that fans of the popular title Titanfall 2 would be getting a pleasant surprise in the company's battle royale, Apex Legends. Now, a new clue from the Broken Ghost quest in Apex has given even more credence to these hints.
A cinematic trailer that went live as a part of the Broken Ghost quest showed the newest villain in the Apex world, a murderous robot called Revenant, watching the news. About 10 seconds into the trailer, Ash, the simulacrum assassin from Titanfall 2, makes an appearance.
Titanfall 2 Villain Ash Teased in Apex Legends
For those unfamiliar with the storyline, Apex Legends takes place about two decades after the end of Titanfall 2. Ash was killed during the Titanfall storyline, so some sort of resurrection would have to take place for her to return.
That resurrection might be taking place right now, during the Broken Ghost quest in Apex. On top of the newsreel, the word "Ash" was marked on the reward for completing the latest part of the quest.
It is currently unknown how Ash will fit into the Apex universe, or whether she will eventually become a playable character or not. When asked about how the end of the quest will turn out, Respawn writer Tom Cosiello was tight-lipped on the subject.
The only revelation he would make is that the end of Apex Season 5, which will likely culminate with the completion of the Broken Ghost quest, will set up the storyline for Season 6. This means that players likely won't see Ash in the game until Season 6 at the earliest.
Whatever role Ash will play, it's always cool to see games combining to form one long storyline. Season 6 of Apex is certainly poised to be one of the best yet.
