Newcastle – original character with interesting history
What we know about Apex Legends Season 13 Newcastle – the new character? There is an interesting story behind him.
Jackson Williams was one of the best soldiers in IMC during the war. But in fact, he recognized that he is that “bad guy” on the dark side of the conflict. That’s why he just deserted, left his sister and took the new name: Lamont Craig.
He got married, had kids, and was a good, normal father that lives in peace in Harris Valley. Everything was calm and safe – thanks to local knight Newcastle.
However, Newcastle did a bad thing – he sold the town to pay off his debts. Merchants came, but Newcastle died, killed by the members of Forgotten Families. Lamont Craig saw it by chance. He defeats them, but there are many more to come.
