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.

A fresh Apex Legends leak has pointed at more game modes coming in Season 8 and beyond, including ranked Solos mode and another iteration of Kings Canyon. 

As the Apex Legends seasons have gone on, Respawn Entertainment have added a number of different game modes to the battle royale. For the most part, these limited-time modes have either been slight or major tweaks on the typical last man standing formula of a battle royale.

With Season 8 on the horizon, some leaks have started to filter out about Apex’s second anniversary season – including who we might see as a new legend, current legend tweaks, and of course, limited-time modes. 

These leaks have revealed a team deathmatch-like game mode, that would be played on Kings Canyon, coming to Apex at some point, but a fresh set of leaks have revealed that the devs have more than just that up their sleeve.

Apex has been awash with LTMs, just like the Winter Express mode.

Apex Legends leaker SomeoneWhoLeaks posted the new images on January 14, showing the activity feed from somebody testing out new game modes ahead of Season 8. 

Them team deathmatch style mode – known as Arenas – makes an appearance, as does something called Anniversary Event Kings Canyon, as well as game modes called Locked and Loaded and Death Trigger.

However, what is the most interesting part of it all, is that there a reference to a Ranked Solos mode. It does look a little different from the rest as its listed as “#PL_Ranked_Leagues_solo!”

Its inclusion is incredibly interesting as, whenever fans have asked for a solos mode, Respawn has been against it – stating that they have data that points to solos not being “healthy” for the battle royale.

They reiterated their position on January 8, saying that a solos mode would not be coming to Apex. It could be a case that the mode is being tested to assess more data, so, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens here.
