Respawn Entertainment released another Apex Legends: Stories from the Outlands short today called Judgment, and it’s all about Mad Maggie, who is also the new Legend joining the battle royale.
The story begins with what appears to be a court case for Mad Maggie. Of course, she wasn’t really doing anything wrong, she just did some things that don’t make the Syndicate happy, like bringing food to the hungry and more.
We then see Maggie outside, handcuffed and surrounded by security. Within seconds of dying via firing squad, Maggie is saved from the Apex Games, which is where she will compete as a form of punishment. However, Maggie is pretty cool with this, and it will be up to the players to determine how she plays in battle royale.
The official launch trailer for Mad Maggie and the Defiance season that begins when she joins the game will drop on January 27. Respawn also revealed a new limited time mode called Control that will launch with the start of the Defiance season.
“During the first three weeks of Defiance, see if you can handle the madness in the new Control mode,” reads the Apex Legends website. “Select your loadout and immerse yourself in a 9v9 experience where teams battle to hold control points with infinite respawn.”
We’ll find out more about Control and Mad Maggie later this week when Defiance’s season trailer drops on January 27.
