Apex Legends is already one of the most successful games of 2019, and it looks like there could be plenty of new legends headed to the title very soon.
Update 2/24: Additional evidence of the new Legends has been found in the form of player card names.
Original story as follows.
Several Twitter users posted screenshots of purported leaks that may have been data mined from Apex’s source code, which appear to show a number of new legends and abilities.
Two possible future legends found by data miners seem to have the names “Octane” and “Wattson”.
Besides the names, leakers were able to find potential abilities for each character. Octane appears to have a “Stimpack” ability, while Wattson has a Tesla Trap - probably some kind of trap that damages players as they’re trapped, or stops them from moving for a certain amount of time.
Octane’s “Stimpack” is more vague, it could be a boost to health of ultimate charge, or something else entirely. There’s just not enough information yet to know for sure.
Besides Wattson and Octane, leakers also found a number of possible new characters, but whether or not they’re all legit is still unknown:
Besides naming the potential new legends, there’s no information on when any of the new characters will be available - or if they ever will.
Still, data mined leaks have proven to be somewhat accurate in the past, so fans will just have to wait and see if this one is legit or not.
Respawn has made it clear they want to provide plenty of content for players, so new legends coming to the battlefield might not be too far off.
