Stories From the Outlands: Northstar
New Legend: Valkyrie
As some know, during the 100m Unique Players Thank You video, there were some teasers for the upcoming season. Many have guessed new legend “Valk” and an update to Olympus. Those have officially been confirmed. Here’s what we know about Valkyrie:
Bold, brash, fiery and fierce, Kairi Imahara grew up in the shadow of her father’s legacy. But now she’s ready to launch her own.
Valkyrie happens to be the daughter of Viper (an Apex Predator killed by Jack Cooper in Titanfall 2). Valkyrie meets with Blisk, appearing to plan revenge for her father’s death, but either changes her mind, or was only planning to impress Blisk in the first place.
For those not aware, Northstar, was a Titan in Titanfall 2, most famously used by Viper, an Apex Predator, in the campaign. While we don’t know much about the Legend yet, with Legacy around the corner, we will know more soon enough.
