Hm... Son, you think you've got what it takes? They call us Apex Legends. But not all legends are heroes. Each fight for their own reasons. From the ashes of war, legends are born. They are icons of strength, power. Outside the ring, they're champions. Inside, they're equals. But the goal remains the same, become an Apex Legend. I say it's a sport of survival. You ask me? It's simple, eh. They kill you, they're better. You kill them, you're better.
