Apex Legends’ new hero is five-time Hyperfighting Federation champion Forge

Apex Legends is almost a year old, and developer Respawn will be celebrating its free-to-play battle royale game’s first birthday on 4th February by ushering in a new season. And now, in preparation for the big day, it’s outlined a few of the additions coming to Season 4 – subtitled Assimilation – including a brand-new Legend going by the name of Forge.
