New Apex Legends leaks have surfaced, pointing towards a whole host of new Legends being added to the game at some point in the future. 

Data miners have been scouring the game’s files since the recent March 6 update, discovering a a wide range of new things. Two weapons, a Flamethrower and a Remote Turret, were uncovered on March 8 before leakers also stumbled on to a potential Night Mode for the Kings Canyon map.

Now, it looks like they may have uncovered a whole host of new Legends – in addition to the previously leaked new Legend, Octane.

Respawn EntertainmentNew Legends look set to join the current selection – which could alter the game’s meta in a big way.

Twitter user ApexLeaksNews tweeted out screenshots of legends that are alledgedly a work-in-progress that have been discovered in new texture files for the game.

The screenshots show these new Legends spliced in-between current Legends like Bloodhound and Caustic. While the photo can be difficult to see, one character that stands out looks to wear a skull-mask while being kitted out with a helmet and armor plating up to its neck. 

There is currently no official confirmation on a release date for these additions, or even what their names may be in-game. We already know a number of details about Octane – with some details about a Legend named ‘Wattson’ also surfacing recently.

As with any leak of game information, there’s a chance that plans could change – meaning these characters may not be released in their previously leaked form or, perhaps, with a different name.

Apex Legends Season 8 event, Chaos Theory, is expected to release in March, and will launch alongside the release of Apex on Nintendo Switch. Here’s everything we know about the event so far, including release date, leaks, rumors and even an heirloom to be expected.

When is Chaos Theory event in Apex Legends?

The event is expected to start on March 11, just a couple days after the Switch release for Apex Legends, on March 9. This will follow the conclusion of the Anniversary Collection event on March 3, after it was extended by a week.

Events typically last between two and three weeks, so expect a similar time frame for Chaos Theory.

Despite no official announcement yet, we know it will be called Chaos Theory after Target revealed it early on their Nintendo Switch Champion Edition listing.

Caustic Town Takeover

Respawn have been teasing the next Town Takeover, expected to be for Caustic, in-game. The first teaser dropped on February 23.

The Town Takeover will be at Water Treatment on Kings Canyon, but we will have to wait until Respawn do a full reveal to see what it looks like.

Bangalore Heirloom

Bangalore is the only original launch Legend who hasn’t received an heirloom yet, and all signs point to her being next up.

Numerous leaks from data miners have found what Bangalore’s heirloom will be, so you can check it out here if you don’t mind the spoiler.

The Anniversary Collection event provides the opportunity to get 150 heirloom shards, so if you’re a Bangalore main, you might want to hold on to those shards for a bit.

Chaos Theory event skins

We don’t yet have any images of the skins coming in the event, but data miners have narrowed down which Legends we can expect some new cosmetics for specifically.

Thanks to reliable leaker Biast12, the expected event skins are for the following characters:

Legendary:

  • Caustic
  • Crypto
  • Gibraltar
  • Loba
  • Rampart
  • Revenant
  • Wattson

Epic:

  • Octane
  • Caustic
  • Wattson

There are also files for numerous recolors for past event skins, but we’re not sure yet if these will be available during the Chaos Theory event, or separately.


That’s everything we know so far about the Chaos Theory event, though there are still a lot of details unknown. We’ll keep you updated on everything right here, and on Twitter @TitanfallBlog.
