One Apex Legends fan has come up with a clever, potentially game-changing idea that could easily be implemented at any point.

How popular is Apex Legends?

Over 50 million players have tried their hand at Respawn Entertainment’s take on the battle royale genre – including their own seasonal content release, Wild Frontier. However, fans have been left wanting more and more from the popular title.

Concept ideas for the game have flooded social media, as fans try to put their own spin on things. We’ve already seen ideas based on new characters, new finisher abilities and end-of-game rewards for Apex Champions.

Yet, another idea may shake up how the popular battle royale is played altogether.

Posted to the Apex Legends subreddit, the idea from user FrozenFroh, would allow players buy in-game sponsors user their Apex Tokens – allowing fans of the title to represent a certain faction or group. Rough ideas for the concept including being able to unlock a ton of new badges – adding on to the 169 that already available and unlockable in-game for various different reasons.

The factions and sponsors could also play a role in getting players into the game, be it returning for another session and being greeted with a new welcome message, or waiting for that all-important respawn from a teammate inside a dropship instead of watching a live feed of the game.

What new plans does Respawn have for Apex Legends?

It remains to be seen if Respawn adds any of these interesting concept ideas moving forward in a similar fashion to how Fortnite.

While the developer could be touted as stealing content from elsewhere, if fans have a real demand for change then the developer could be missing out by not following through on the demand.

It could just be a matter of wait and see for fans as Respawn has already committed the game for the long-term, laying out a full year one road map upon the title’s release. While what they have lined up is still under wraps, the Titanfall developer could well have plans of their own for similar sort of content that could be released in the future.

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.
