UPDATE ONE: Fans believe that Respawn Entertainment may have already dropped hints regarding the new Legends characters coming to Apex Legends next month.
A new post on Reddit looks to offer a theory on what could be coming next to the free-to-play Battle Royale game on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Having zoomed in on a recent trailer that shows two silhouettes, and done some other digging, it appears that more unused Titanfall 2 concepts could be added to the game in the future.
The Reddit theory explains: “What you’re looking at is a robot-pilot looking silhouette on the left and a human with jet-pack or tech-based stuff on their back, if you’ve followed this subreddit daily then you might know Bloodhound was in the Titanfall artbook and then was re-used for the Apex Legends game years later.
“Our character in the left is a Simulacrum red-hooded pilot from the concept art that was never used, and our character on the right is Talchum, the Korean legend found hidden in Pathfinder’s official art.
“Judging by Titanfall 2 classes being re-used for this game, we might be getting a stim based legend and a double jump/jet pack.”
ORIGINAL: Apex Legends is getting new Legends in the future, and they may be released with some other more surprising content.
Data miners have already found evidence of some potentially big changes coming to the game and they will be focusing on today’s update to see if they can find more.
As many fans will already know, Respawn Entertainment’s new Battle Royale game will see its first Season go live in March.
And Season 1 of Apex Legends will be a big one, adding new loot, weapons and characters to unlock.
Each season will run for approximately three months, with four announced for PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2019.
The Battle Pass will be a big part of the new seasonal system and will reward players with exclusive cosmetic items.
These rewards are a mix of exclusive seasonal cosmetics and Apex Packs.
The good news is that every player can unlock some of these items each season through normal play; those who choose to purchase the Battle Pass can earn everything available that season, around 100 different rewards.
You can unlock new characters in the store by collecting 12,000 Legend Tokens and more will look set to be added next March.
From what has been shared by Respawn so far, these new Legends will be unlockable through normal pay and will not be paywalled by the seasonal pass.
But could we see more than just what has been confirmed by Respawn arrive in March too?
Data miners believe they have found information connected to new vehicles being added to the game.
A new Hoverbike has been found for Apex Legends, complete with files that suggest it isn’t far from release completion.
There’s currently no way of knowing if this new item will be released during Season 1, or if it something that is being saved for later.
A new Apex Legends update went live today and will no doubt be a focal point for data miners wanting to find more clues.
There’s no mention of a Hoverbike in the new patch notes, so we can rule out its launch in the immediate future.
The new Apex Legends update may not include new characters or the Hoverbike, but it does add some new cosmetic items.
Apex fans can now unlock a “Live Die Live” Banner Badge, which is earned by reviving a member of your squad between 2/13 and 2/19.
There is also new Valentines Day cosmetic items in the store which will be live and available until February 19.
