More Apex Legends leaks have surfaced following the Wednesday, March 6 update, with the latest leak suggesting that NPC characters could be added to the game in the near future.

Data miners have already been hard at work scouring through the game’s files searching for hints and clues as to what will likely be added to the massively popular battle royale title.


In the game’s files, two new weapons have been found in the form of a Flamethrower and a Remote Turret, while links to a night mode and a ‘Community Happy Hour’ have also been released by leakers.


NPCs might soon be joining the Legends.

Now, it seems that Apex Legends players can expect to see non-playable characters enter the game, as a huge number of files related to NPCs have been discovered inside the game’s files.

Not a whole lot is known about what these NPCs will do, but thanks to @RealApexLeaks we do know that NPCs will be able to use weapons and melee opponents, and can be set to be hostile or friendly to players inside the game.


It also appears that some of the names of the NPC characters have been released, with another image showing files labelled with names like Sarah, Marvin and Soldier all discovered in the files.


It’s currently unknown if these NPC characters will be used in the proper battle royale portion of Apex Legends, or if they will be included as part of the training that takes place at the start of the game. 


There is also no information regarding when these NPC characters will release, although it’s possible they could be introduced as part of the Apex Legends Season 1 update.

As with any leak, there’s a chance we may never see them make an appearance inside the game at all.
