Datamine Apex Legends Leak Teases 9 Upcoming Legends, Weapons, Heirlooms, Maps, and Other Things
These could be the game's plans for the next few seasons, according to the studio.
When it comes to Apex Legends, data mines and leaks are fairly common, but the most recent one is possibly one of the most significant yet. This latest leak comes from Reddit user u/Legitimate Chapter82 on the r/ApexUncovered subreddit, and it reveals about 9 future Legends as well as a slew of new weapons, heirlooms, and even a map.
The user was able to learn not only the names of the allegedly upcoming Legends but also their special abilities and gameplay animations. While plans are subject to change, the following 9 Legends may be added to the game in the future, according to the leak:
- Conduit (Support)
- Scryer (Recon)
- Newcastle (Defensive)
- Uplink (Defensive)
- Vantage (Recon)
- Catalyst (Defensive)
- Phantom (Support)
- Jester (Unclear)
- Caliber (Support)
Massive Apex Legends Leak Reveals 9 Potential Legends and More
The user was also able to record gameplay of the legends demonstrating their abilities. Similar datamines and leaks have occurred in the past, prematurely revealing legends, but there is a strong possibility that they are just placeholders or works in progress.
Respawn has previously cheated players, most notably with the Legend, Forge, and there is a strong possibility that the studio will change its plans on the fly. If these Legends do not fit the meta in a way that seems appropriate, they may be re-tooled, re-skinned, or removed entirely.
In addition, the user was able to learn about upcoming weapons, game modes, and much more. A new map, titled 'Divided Moon,' was discovered, which could be the location for the upcoming Season or a couple of seasons down the road.
Apex Legends Season 12 was recently released by Respawn, and Mad Maggie was added to the mix. The studio is currently working on porting the game to mobile devices, with a global release planned for later this year.
