In a video posted by Apex Legends leaker iLootGames, players are able to get their first glimpse at what could be the upcoming character Loba’s tactical ability animation.
Season 4 may have only just recently kicked off and introduced Revenant, but fans always have their eyes set towards the future and early signs are beginning to point at Loba as the next addition to the battle royale.
She has been in the files for months now, but with her ability animation just now being discovered, it looks like she’s getting closer to an official release.
In fact, this Legend was first introduced to players as Rosie but has now become to be known as Loba. While she hasn’t officially been unveiled by Respawn as of yet, fans caught what is believed to be a glimpse of her origin story in Revenant’s cinematic trailer.
Whether or not it’s actually her remains to be seen, but there’s no denying that whenever she does join the cast, she’ll be one to definitely keep your eyes on.
The leaker’s video shows what it’ll look like from a first-person perspective when Loba throws her teleportation disc. This ability is presumed to allow her to teleport to wherever she throws her projectile, so it sounds like it’ll be something that can break into the meta in a big way.
She will have more abilities to help her stand out from the rest of the pack, but for now, this remains the only leak we’ve seen on that front.
Keep in mind that she’s just one of many characters that have been leaked and datamined, so there’s no guarantee she’ll even be the next character to be released.
Remember that the developers like to be tricky as everybody thought Forge was going to be the Season 4 legend, only to have unceremoniously killed off and replaced with Revenant.
In fact, we still don’t know with absolute certainty whether or not the bulky character is even gone for good, so perhaps a resurrection could be in the cards going forward.
In terms of when we might see Loba, Forge, or whoever the next new Legend turns out get added to the game, the new midseason split format could be a good opportunity for Respawn to add in a second character in Season 4, which obviously wasn’t the case for the first three seasons.
As with everything the devs do nowadays, we’ll just have to wait and see how this all develops.
