Apex Legends leak reveals new aliens coming to World’s Edge

Over the last year, Apex Legends players have seen two different alien species from the Titanfall universe added to the game and another could be on the way soon.

Apex is set in the same universe as the Titanfall games, which makes sense since they all have the same developer in Respawn Entertainment. 

While Apex seems to take place several years after the events of both Titanfall games, it’s already featured the loot-dropping Flyers along with the massive Leviathans, and now new leaks point to another alien species from the series called “Prowlers” being added soon as well.

The animation for the little alien pups, which shares the name Prowler with a weapon in Apex, was posted by prominent data miner iLootGames on Twitter. In the leaked animations, the Prowlers just seem to be spazzing out a bit at first but if you pay attention they seem to be howling as if they’ve just spotted some prey, which very well could be players themselves.

Another leak from Apex data miner Biast12 seems to confirm that the Prowlers will indeed be hostile to players, with animation file names like “pr_death_run_wipeout” and “pr_diebackward” for when they’re taken out.

It’s not known how the little guys will behave when/if they’re added to Apex, but based on their name alone it’s a good guess they’ll be prowling randomly around the map.

Biast12’s leak also includes another nugget of information aside from the Prowlers, in the highlighted file the name “desertlands” appears.

In Apex Legends files World’s Edge is coded as “desertlands”, which is just another confirmation that the Prowlers will be showing up on the map sometime soon.

It must be noted, however, that the critters could also show up on Kings Canyon as well, since there are plenty of files that don’t specify one map or the other.

Respawn Entertainment - Apex LegendsWorld’s Edge has been in effect since the major Season 3 update on October 1.

Exactly when the Prowler pups will arrive is still unknown, but if the files are already in Apex, there’s a good chance we’ll see them sooner, rather than later during Season 4.

With the recent arrival of Season 7, Apex Legends fans are jumping into Olympus with all of their favorite Legends. One voice actor of the non-binary Bloodhound recently shared what they sound like prior to vocal edits.

Arriving alongside the launch of Apex Legends back in 2019, Bloodhound was one of the first Legends available for players to utilize in matches. Billed as a legendary hunter, this Technological Tracker is the first non-binary character in the hit battle royale.

As the Apex seasons have progressed, the character has become increasingly powerful and seen their popularity grown.

So, in a peek behind the scenes, the voice actor behind Bloodhound has revealed how they sound before Respawn adds a few tweaks to make it sound as it does now.

Bloodhound is, quite simply, one of Apex’s most popular legends.

The voice behind the mask

In a recent post to their TikTok account, voice actor Allegra Clark shared a clip of what the voice lines she records sound like prior to editing.

Stating that “what I do is only part of the vocal performance,” Clark details that a cool gas-mask vocal effect also pitches down her voice about two steps.

While the direction Allegra was originally given was that of an “androgynous, badass place,” she then goes on to share what Bloodhound’s iconic voice sounds like pre-editing. With a stark contrast to her regular voice, Clark’s vocal modulation and Icelandic/Old Norse accent instantly show off that recognizable cadence they have with their iconic lines.

The fans react

Shared on Reddit by IIIlandist, fans have been reacting to the non-binary character’s lines being heard without the filter.

One commenter stated: “when she said Mozambique here I felt that,” with another adding, “when she said Mozambique here I died.” Fans of the character were excited to hear how their vocal performance came about and seeing the effort of production that goes into creating the Legend.

It’s incredibly interesting seeing behind the scenes information regarding voice work and the like. This clip shared by Clark is no exception.
