Apex Legends leak reveals possible new ‘town takeover’ event

The Apex Legends devs are planning big things for their battle royale, which could include a new Town Takeover, according to leaks.

Respawn Entertainment’s Town Takeovers have been a popular fixture with the Apex fan base since the inaugural edition on Kings Canyon when Octane came into the game. Since then, the devs experimented with Takeovers featuring original Legends from the roster with great effect.

Seeing as the community love the character-specific Town Takeovers or in-game events like Pathfinder’s Shadowfall LTM, it’s no surprise that the devs would want to bring it back for another Legend of their roster.

Respawn EntertainmentIt would be interesting to see an LTM or Town Takeover centered around the game’s Holographic Trickster.

A deep dive into the game’s latest files by known leaker ‘That1MiningGuy’ explored a possible upcoming event that will task players to “Capture the Train” on World’s Edge.

That1MiningGuy found evidence for an upcoming points-based King-of-the-Hill mode on the map’s moving train.

It seems like players will have to “capture the train to earn points,” with new “spawn regions” to get back into the game.

“So you are not going to have to go and respawn your allies in an actual beacon in this mode,” That1MiningGuy said. “It looks like there’s going to be like a designated area or a set of designated areas where you will go respawn your teammates.”

If it’s an official Town Takeover, it will be the first one to be mobile, seeing as a popular feature of the World’s Edge train is its constant movement around the map.

Although nothing is conclusive, the language for voice line texts makes it seem like Mirage will have a heavy influence on an in-game event soon.

The leak has various “announcements” which strongly links this LTM or Town Takeover to Mirage simply going by the Legend’s classic humor.

“The other squads better be a-freight. BADUM-TSSS,” one line says with another one indicating a draw by saying “that really went off the rails.”

No other character in Apex is as comfortable with puns and quips like that other than Octane, but he’s already had a turn in the spotlight, as That1MiningGuy pointed out.

In either case, it seems like development into another in-game mode for Apex Legends is getting worked on and with any luck it’ll be arriving soon, possibly in times for another holiday event.

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.
