The events that will kick off Apex Legends Season 4 seem to be drawing near with updated in-game teasers that brings the mysterious ship above World’s Edge ever closer to landfall.

Respawn Entertainment has a reputation of lacing their battle royale’s map with multiple teasers that range from cryptic messages to interactable objects like Octane’s Launch Pad at the turn of Season 2.

This time it’s no different with the surprise events from Forge’s “Up Close and Personal” interview strongly indicating that Revenant will be coming into the Apex Games for the next chapter.

The new teaser sits right on top of a site perfect for a new makeover in Season 4.

Though that remains to be seen, players are finding new easter eggs in Apex linked to the major corporations in the Outlands, namely Hammond Robotics.

Above the Fuel Depot near where the first Hammond Robotics signage appeared there’s a new projector that players can interact with which lights up the sky with the company’s logo.

The giant power button with an ‘H’ in the middle appears and rotates above the main building located nearby. After a little while the projection disappears and players can reactivate the object to light it up again.

Community members already figured that one of the map updates in line for the new season would be located at the Fuel Depot, but it seems like the introduction of the sign could have something to do with the mysterious object in the sky.

People like Reddit user ‘BigBuluga’ noticed that the unidentified flying object above World’s Edge now has a noticeable blue halo around its three rockets and is significantly brighter than before.

It looks like the vessel is getting much closer to landfall, and if it’s a Harvester like some believe it to be, then it would make sense if it landed near a place that stores something like fuel.

Just in front of the Fuel Depot, there’s a clear-blue body of water with nothing much else around it, making it the perfect location for an industrial mining site to harvest the planet’s minerals.

Though it remains to be seen what Respawn are cooking up for their next chapter, players won’t have long to wait until Season 4’s February 4 launch.

Apex Legends drops first teaser for Season 8 Legend and new planet

Apex Legends is in the final stretch of Season 7, now gearing up for Season 8. That means Respawn are starting to roll out teasers for the next Legend, possible new modes, and even another planet.

On January 15, Apex Legends released a new version of the classic Kings Canyon map out of the blue. On it, Mirage Voyage was back, but there was also some interesting teasers in the sky.

Then, later that same day, they posted on social media what looks to be our first clue about what’s coming in Season 8.

This new teaser mentions Salvo, which we’ve heard about before in Apex Legends. It also features a handshake – and the hands are potentially our first look at the Season 8 Legend.

Season 8 teaser

This teaser wasn’t in-game, but instead posted on the official Apex Legends Twitter and Instagram accounts. It was captioned ‘New Blood’ – possibly a hint at ‘new blood’ joining the Apex games.

In the teaser, we see a handshake between someone representing the planet Salvo, and someone representing the Syndicate. If you’re unaware, the Syndicate are the people behind the Apex Games.

The text reads “The Syndicate and Salvo… Unified at Last. Approved by the Committee of Unification Board.” If you’re confused about what this means we’ll explain below. The image is then stamped with the logo of Salvo M.C. (presumably Salvo Motorcycle Club).

What is Salvo in Apex Legends?

Salvo is another planet in the Outlands, and one that has been independent of the Syndicate, up until now. The most important information we have about Salvo comes from a letter that was on Wattson’s desk. The letter read:

“I am writing to inform you that Salvo – which rejected the Mercenary Syndicate’s position to join Syndicate Space in 2722 – is now being guided by new leadership sympathizers to the cause of peace within the Outlands.

Talks with this new administration was prolonged, but ultimately fruitful; as of today, the Mercenary Syndicate Treaty has been amended, and Salvo will become the seventh world to join Syndicate Space.

Salvo brings with it [redacted]. In the coming [redacted] Office of Public Relations will be rolling out a social [redacted] to dispel inaccuracies about [redacted] to create an appropriate [redacted] for their integration into the Syndicate, [redacted] including exciting new developments within the Apex Games.

At this time do not correspond with the Legends regarding this matter. Expect further instructions [redacted] our office in the days to come.”

The letter on Wattson’s desk told us about Salvo and the Syndicate.

Is Salvo a new map?

This is unlikely, at least for the time being. We just got a new map for Season 7 after all. Salvo is a planet too, rather than a singular location (e.g. Olympus is a city on the planet Psamathe).

Season 8 Legend

More likely, Salvo is the home planet of the new Legend, who data miners believe will be called Fuse, and whose abilities will be about explosives (which would actually tie into the name ‘salvo’.)

Another hint is the spaceship we can now see above the map on Kings Canyon and Olympus. The ship has a message which reads simply ‘Salvo Joins Syndicate.’

Expect to see more teasers about Season 8, Salvo and the new Legend in the coming weeks. Season 8 is due to begin in early February, to tie in with the two-year anniversary of Apex Legends.
