Apex Legends Season 4 Launch Trailer reveals Revenant’s evil backstory
Respawn Entertainment have finally unveiled the full trailer for Apex Legends Season 4, revealing the full backstory of Revenant, has his hunt for revenge.
In the build-up to the new season, which starts on the one-year anniversary of the game’s release, Respawn have been creating expansive lore. Most of it has centered around two unreleased Legends: Forge and Revenant.
Back on January 23, they revealed Forge as the new legend, which came as a surprise to many, who were expecting Revenant. But, Forge’s time was short-lived, as Revenant took revenge and killed him in cold blood.
This sparked confusion, and some even pointed out differences in Forge that could mean a body-double was killed instead. All was set to be revealed and explained in the official launch trailer, released on January 30.

The trailer also appears to reveal one of Revenant’s abilities. Like the Shadowfall LTM, it looks like he can dip into this mode and unleash havoc. Leakers already have a full list of his abilities, but this is the first time we’ve seen it in action.
Whether Forge is still set to make a comeback is unknown, but for now, it looks like he’s out of the picture. Fans who are convinced it was just a body double, may be out of luck. But, there could easily be another twist in this story yet.
What’s coming in Apex Legends Season 4?
In addition to the new legend, Respawn have confirmed a new weapon is also on the way, the Sentinel Sniper Rifle. It’s a bolt action rifle, and although some players were disappointed not to get a new SMG, a new sniper is a welcome addition.

New Battle Pass
No surprises here, but a fresh new battle pass will also launch with Season 4. Early seasons’ passes were criticized for their contents, but Respawn has seriously stepped up their game since.
Season 4’s battle pass is “packed with 100 exclusive items including Legendary skins, Apex packs, Loading Screens, Music Packs, and more!”
Also, to celebrate the game’s one-year anniversary, logging in between February 4-11 will grant players with a Year 1 Origami Flyer charm, a Year 1 Loyalty badge, and 10k XP for your first match of the day (available each day).
Map changes and Kings Canyon coming back
We can also expect some map changes to World’s Edge, which will still be the main map when the season launches. However, Respawn have confirmed that Kings Canyon will be making a comeback too.
Unfortunately, for Kings Canyon fans, it’s only been confirmed as coming back in ranked mode, and only for the second split, starting March 24.
Apex Legends Season 4 starts on February 4, on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
