Fans of both Apex Legends and the Titanfall series are having a field day this week. So much connective tissue is showing between the two franchises, and it seems like the new Apex Legends Legacy Arena mode is going to keep those connections growing with the reintroduction of Ash from Titanfall 2.
As more and more lore continues to be revealed for Apex Legends, it’s starting to become just how clear the connection is between it and Titanfall. With the “Stories from the Outlands – Northstar” being the most recent large-scale tie in.
Today changes all that with the trailer for Apex Legends Legacy, the next chapter in the Apex Games. The trailer put Ash at the head with her hosting a new game mode titled “Arena.”
Here’s everything you need to know about who Ash is from Titanfall and how she connects to Apex Legends.

Who is Ash from Titanfall?
Ash has quite the backstory and is already an established character in both Titanfall 2 and Apex Legends so it makes sense that she would be one of the new important characters for Apex Legacy.
She served as one of Titanfall 2‘s antagonists with her participation in the mercenary group the Apex Predators. However, she lived after her defeat by protagonist Jack Cooper and BT and continued to work on and off with Apex leader Kuben Blisk. After having her mind transferred into a robotic body, Blisk threw her head into the interdimensional portal featured prominently in the Apex map Kings Canyon. After being reassembled by the Legends, she’s contacted once again by Blisk who invites her to go meet an “old friend,” a reference to the now playable Horizon.
She’s certainly had her ups and downs both on and off screen, but now she seems to be tapping into her more sadistic side by hosting the bloodsport spinoff of the Apex Games, the Apex Arena.
While not much is known about the Apex Arena other than what’s in the teaser trailer, it seems like we’re going to be getting a whole lot of Ash in the upcoming season.
