Apex Legends upcoming Season 9 Legacy update is releasing on May 4 and it's bringing exciting new content to the game. Apart from the new 3v3 game mode and the new weapon, developer Respawn Entertainment is adding a new playable legend in the game called Valkyrie.
Born to a titan pilot, Kairi Imahara aka Valkyrie is the upcoming recon character coming to Apex Legends. She uses her jets to soar high up in the sky and they are also helpful in making quick getaways from duels. Valkyrie's character is voiced by Erika Ishii who is also the voice behind Ana Bray in Destiny 2.
