Apex Legends Season 4 will be with us in a few days, and long-time players know what that means: a new legend soon graces the arena to shake things up.
The reveal of the new character for Season 4 has been pretty chaotic compared to previous seasons, we had a shortlist of THREE possible characters Revenant, Forge and Rosie, which was recently whittled down to two thanks to Revenant murdering Forge in a recent video release.
Rosie has been a known entity since concept artwork for unreleased characters were leaked last year. Although it would seem that the new Assimilation launch trailer confirmed Revenant as the new character, there were also subtle hints towards a possible origin story for Rosie.

Who is Rosie in Apex Legends Season 4?
Rosie was supposedly Wattson’s tutor during the time she grew up in Kings Canyon.
She also goes by a separate name sometimes being referred to as Loba. As to which name we will use in-game, only time will tell.
She was on the list of suspected characters that was leaked back in February and is referenced as the ‘translocating thief’.
Rosie/Loba and her list of abilities
Here’s a list of her supposed abilities:
- Eye for quality: Loba (Rosie) can see through walls and can open up hidden compartments in loot bins.
- Supply for demand: Hold (button) to choose a type of loot. Reveal that type of loot in the area through walls
- Burglar's best friend: Throw a disc and teleport to that location.
- Black Market Boutique: Place a device that can steal all nearby loot.
I think it’s fair to assume that this character sounds like it's been built for those who think of themselves as very unlucky when it comes to their loot.

We've all been in a situation whereby we land with multiple teams, run into a building in the hopes of getting a weapon only to find a bandage and getting killed straight away by someone with a fully decked out R-301 carbine and gold shields.
It will be interesting to see whether a loot based legend will alleviate some of those problems.
When will Apex Legends Season 4 release?
Apex Legends Season 4 will be released on Tuesday 4th February, 2020. The original plan was to have it released in December however it looks like its been pushed back until after the holiday season no doubt to give the Apex team a well deserved break.
