Data miners have leaked that a new “Clubs” feature could soon be on its way to Apex Legends ahead of the long-awaited addition of cross-platform play this fall.

There are plenty of online multiplayer titles that feature some sort of clan or guild feature, allowing players to invite like-minded people to teams and equip the same clan tag in-game.

It appears as if Respawn is now working on a similar feature called “Clubs” for Apex Legends after more game files were leaked following the Lost Treasures event update.

Apex Legends players might soon be able to join in-game teams with their friends.

Prominent data miner shrugtal was among the first to share this new feature, explaining that these clubs are possibly being added to cut down the number of solo queue players.

“The intent of the system seems to support the fact that Apex is a team game by making it easy to find similar players to party with and reduce the amount of solo queuing,” he added.

The data miner also claimed that these clubs would likely be accessible from the main menu and come with its own “club-only chat channel” to organize parties and more.

Shrugtal revealed more info about this new feature in his latest YouTube video, highlighting some of the files that have been added in support of this new system.

The leak contained files for choosing club IDs, accepting member requests, privacy settings, and much more. He also claimed it is unlikely that these clubs will be forced to have unique names once it is added, meaning there could be multiple clubs with the same name.

There are also expected to be different member tiers and higher-ranked members should be given more permissions for tasks like adding or kicking players from the clubs.

While there is no release date for this new feature, shrugtal explained that they would likely be looking to introduce it ahead of the crossplay feature in fall, but added that it could come to Apex Legends as early as Season 6.

As with all leaks, many of the details shared are still subject to change until it’s officially confirmed.

The Apex Legends Champion Edition bundle is bringing a slew of skins, exclusive weapon charms, and more in Season 7. Here’s everything you need to know from the price to the release date.

Previous Apex Legends editions have included skins and cosmetics, plus Apex Coins. The Champion Edition goes a step further however, as it will unlock all the post-launch Legends leading up to Season 7.

This is perfect if you’re just starting out in Apex Legends and want to get caught up, and it will also fit in nicely with the game’s release on new platforms like Switch and Steam later in the year.

Apex Legends Champion Edition price

The appropriately-titled Champion Edition, includes eight items, including some awesome skins, a weapon charm, and more, all for $39.99. While that is a pretty steep price compared to previous bundle editions, EA says what is included is worth $100, so relatively, this is a great deal.
