A fresh Apex Legends leak has seemingly revealed that a further crossover with Titanfall could be in the works for player vs environment event – but could the actual Titans be involved?

With Apex Legends and Titanfall co-existing in the same universe, fans who have played both of Respawn Entertainment’s titles have been begging for more and more crossovers between them. 

We’ve seen pretty neat ideas from players for a Pilot legend and even incorporating Titanfall features like wall-running. However, Respawn has really only used select weapons, the Prowlers, and parts of the lore from their other popular game inside the battle royale. Though, a new leak might be pointing at even more happening in the future.

Reliable Apex Legends data miner that1miningguy pointed out that there are strings in the current game files that point to a player vs environment (PvE) event where Titanfall characters are being used.

In the data miner’s findings, you can see labels for the Spectre, Stalker, Frag Drone, and Titan being accompanied by the ‘_outlands’ tag. “This is interesting to me because I cannot remember seeing the specific strings for these NPCs that included the _outlands tag,” he tweeted, noting that nothing is confirmed however.

Of course, the references to Titans and different Titanfall character in the game’s files are nothing incredibly new. Many weapons and other items have been uncovered before, but only the Prowlers have been used in a prominent way so far.

Respawn have said previously that they experimented with using Titans in Apex, however, they didn’t seem to fit and ruined the balance of things.

Though, the Outlands tag attached to this sighting of the characters is interesting, as it might be in reference to an event coming down the line. 

Apex Legends season five currently has weekly hunts that are PvE based, with players taking on the Prowlers in week one, but it remains to be seen if Respawn has something bigger in mind involving the other Titanfall names.

The era of ‘red dots’ littered across Apex Legends’ menu tabs will finally come to an end after Respawn confirmed they’re implementing a ‘mark all as seen’ button to the game.

Apex’s bustling community is rejoicing after the developers indicated the long-awaited quality of life update that is scheduled for the next patch, if everything goes to plan.

While fans of the game have known for a while that the feature was pending, there hasn’t been much news of it since seeing it on Respawn’s Trello board a while ago. Since the conversation’s gone dark, it’s been a waiting game to see if the developers would follow-up on the organizational feature.

Well, an inquiring fan created a mock-up of what the ‘mark all as seen’ button could look like within the character-select screen. But fiction turned into reality once Respawn Senior Game Designer, Daniel Z. Klein, chimed into the discussion.

The red dots on tabs have cursed the Apex Legends menu screen for a while.

“Could we get a ‘Mark all as seen’ button? Would be useful instead of going through all the menus to clear the icons,” user ‘TigerTankSniper’ suggested, before Klein was happy to oblige.

“Good news! That’s probably coming in the next patch! John Hodgson put that one in not too long ago,” Klein was happy to report. Hodgson is another Senior Game Designer at Respawn, who’s about to make a lot of the Apex fans really happy.

Since the launch of Apex Legends back in February 2019, there’s been a ton of content regularly injected into the battle royale. This stretches from Legends, weapon cosmetics, sky trails, holo sprays, voice lines, banners, and a lot more.

As much as the fans have loved adding troves of content to their personal libraries, every time something new gets added a small red dot appears to notify players of the change.

“I have an army of them because all the useless blue and white items I get, not really motivated enough to click on all them so now it just keeps growing bigger and bigger,” one person wrote.

The thing is, those little indicators can be persistent and a bit of a bother; hence, the quality of life update that’s coming into the game very soon.

But the community can let out a collective sigh of relief seeing as they shouldn’t be a problem in Apex Legends after the next update.
