An Apex Legends developer has given fans a few more hints about Season 4, hinting that there could be another trailer in the works.

With Apex Legends approaching its first year anniversary, the popular battle royale title is gearing up for its fourth installment of seasonal content. Season four, which is going by the name Assimilation, is set to shake up Respawn Entertainment’s game yet again.

It has already been confirmed that players will finally be able to use Revenant as a brand-new legend, and that they’ll also be whisked back to King’s Canyon – the battle royale’s original map – in the second split. Yet, it appears as if there are plenty of more details that are being kept under wraps that the game’s developers are pretty psyched to finally reveal.

The biggest piece of new information appears to be that players will get another trailer on top of the action-packed videos that have already leaked and been subsequently released by Respawn.

Responding to a jokey post about another ‘leaked’ trailer on the game’s subreddit, Apex developer lowkeydbjosh said: “I was like noooooooooooooo not again lol. See y’all soon for the real one though. Fingers crossed, no spoilers.”

Presumably, this will be a gameplay trailer, as so far we’ve only had cinematics. Typically, gameplay trailers are the last videos posted before the season starts.

Season 4 bringing “things the community will be hyped about”

Of course, seemingly confirming another trailer sent some Apex Legends fans into incredible levels of excitement, with the developer being asked to rate the excitement levels that fans can expect. 

“I’m pretty hyped for the entirety of season 4,” the developer posted. “I think we are doing things the community will be hyped about during this season so I’m hyped for you guys to digg in sooon.”

With the developer being pretty teasing about things and not revealing any additional details, it’s hard to say what they’re so excited about – but fans will be hoping that lingering annoyances with things like bugs and skill-based matchmaking are addressed.

They don’t have long to wait, however, with Apex Legends Season 4 being released on Tuesday, February 4.

Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends was an overnight sensation and it’s barely slowed down. In its two years of success, there’s been map changes galore, new legends joining the fight, and an ever-evolving meta – but we’re here to test your knowledge with a quiz.

Kings Canyon was the original map we all dropped into on that fine day of February 4, 2019. Fast forward 24 months, Apex Legends is still one of the most popular battle royale’s – but a lot has changed.

As we approach Season 8, there’s 15 characters to play with, two maps to drop into, and a weapons list containing 24 different guns. On top of that, each seasonal update has delivered different tweaks to gameplay and snippets of Legend lore for various fighters – which means the scope for our quiz questions is quite broad.

By now, you will have been named Champions of the Arena on numerous occasions. But, do you have what it takes to get a perfect score on our ultimate Apex Legends quiz?

Take our Apex Legends quiz!

Your test score will determine just how well you know the Outlands in the Apex world.

The world, of course, is connected to that of the Titanfall series, which was also developed by Respawn Entertainment. Many weapons and features have crossed over between planets, presumably with even more of that to come in the future.

Fuse is the latest to join Apex Legends as a playable character, with a new 30-30 Repeater rifle being added too. For more details on that, check out some of the stories we’ve covered for the game’s next major update:

Don’t be too downhearted if you don’t receive a perfect score this time, but if you are named a Champion, be sure to tweet us @TitanfallBlog on Twitter.
