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. 

List of 8 new legends names from r/apexlegends

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:

  • Crypto
  • Husaria
  • Jericho
  • Nomad
  • Prophet
  • Rampart
  • Rosie
  • Skunner

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.

With the recent arrival of Season 7, Apex Legends fans are jumping into Olympus with all of their favorite Legends. One voice actor of the non-binary Bloodhound recently shared what they sound like prior to vocal edits.

Arriving alongside the launch of Apex Legends back in 2019, Bloodhound was one of the first Legends available for players to utilize in matches. Billed as a legendary hunter, this Technological Tracker is the first non-binary character in the hit battle royale.

As the Apex seasons have progressed, the character has become increasingly powerful and seen their popularity grown.

So, in a peek behind the scenes, the voice actor behind Bloodhound has revealed how they sound before Respawn adds a few tweaks to make it sound as it does now.

Bloodhound is, quite simply, one of Apex’s most popular legends.

The voice behind the mask

In a recent post to their TikTok account, voice actor Allegra Clark shared a clip of what the voice lines she records sound like prior to editing.

Stating that “what I do is only part of the vocal performance,” Clark details that a cool gas-mask vocal effect also pitches down her voice about two steps.

While the direction Allegra was originally given was that of an “androgynous, badass place,” she then goes on to share what Bloodhound’s iconic voice sounds like pre-editing. With a stark contrast to her regular voice, Clark’s vocal modulation and Icelandic/Old Norse accent instantly show off that recognizable cadence they have with their iconic lines.

The fans react

Shared on Reddit by IIIlandist, fans have been reacting to the non-binary character’s lines being heard without the filter.

One commenter stated: “when she said Mozambique here I felt that,” with another adding, “when she said Mozambique here I died.” Fans of the character were excited to hear how their vocal performance came about and seeing the effort of production that goes into creating the Legend.

It’s incredibly interesting seeing behind the scenes information regarding voice work and the like. This clip shared by Clark is no exception.
