Apex Legends players have noticed that the giant Leviathans that stand in the seas outside Kings Canyon appear to be moving.
While there has always been curiosity about the purpose of the Leviathans, so far the creatures have done nothing since the game’s launch, and for most players they’re now simply part of the scenery.
As the game’s first season comes to a close and Season Two approaches, however, it seems the Leviathans are on the move, with eagle-eyed players noticing that they appear to have wandered closer to the island.
For those that struggle to see the difference in the locations by sight alone, u/FrozenFroh also offered a top-down look at how their positioning has changed on the map.
So far, all that’s really known for sure about the game’s second season, which is due to kick off on July 2, is some of the new content arriving, such as new Legend Wattson, a new ranked mode, and the new L-Star SMG.
It seems, however, that Respawn might be ramping up to make some more drastic changes to the game, with construction materials found around the map since the Legendary Hunt Limited Time Mode suggesting a Kings Canyon update is on the way.
It also appears that the developers might be looking to introduce an evolving narrative to the game in a similar manner to Fortnite Battle Royale’s seasonal story, with hints that dragons could be appearing in Season Two.
Exactly where the Leviathans might fit into whatever grand schemes Respawn have for the game remains unknown at this time. Perhaps they could be responsible for destruction that will force certain areas to be rebuilt, or maybe their purpose will fit in with whatever the dragons are set to do.
The developers posted on the Apex Legends Instagram page that one of the Leviathans, named Rosie, is moving southbound at a rate of ten klicks per hour. It's hard to tell what the final intent of the Leviathans will be but we will find out in Season 2.
