Lifeline mains might soon have something to celebrate as both her voice actor and an Apex Legends writer have teased some “juicy” lore, possibly on the way in Season 6. 

The biggest thing that set Apex Legends apart from its battle royale competitors is the use of unique, story-based characters. These ‘Legends’ have their own different abilities to suit various playstyles, but they’ve also got interesting backstories as well.

All of the Legends have had some of their past explained, but not all of them have been in great detail. The most detailed explanations have come in the form of events, cinematic trailers, and other clues from Respawn themselves. 

Even though there have been hints at Bangalore being the star of the show when season six comes around, it appears as if Lifeline will getting some love as well.

Lifeline’s voice actor, Mela Lee, responded to a few fan questions on Twitter about her character before noting that one writer, Tom Casiello, has given her some insight into what’s coming next. 

“Some very juicy Lifeline Lore is coming courtesy of @tommiecas,” she tweeted. “I literally cried when I got a sneak peek.”

The writer responded himself, noting that his previous teasers about Lifeline lore were not in vain and that Lee’s tears were “good tears” – adding fuel to the fire that something pretty big regarding the Combat Medic is in the works.

Now, some fans quickly pointed out that they’re hoping that the teasers lead to a lifeline-themed event, just like how Wraith, Octane, Crypto, and Bloodhound have had Town Takeover events in previous seasons. 

Casiello was also the same writer who confirmed we’d be learning a lot more about Bangalore in Season 6, which led to speculation about an event for her as well. How exactly Lifeline and Bangalore will both get their time in the spotlight is unclear.

Neither the voice actor nor the writer offered anymore insight beyond their tweets, so it’s purely speculation from interested fans. Lifeline does, however, have an Heirloom set, so it would make sense for her to have an event as well, given that Wraith, Octane, and Bloodhound have all had the same treatment.

Ahead of the game’s Season 7 update, set to start on November 7, one of the Apex Legends developers has provided a small but meaningful update on the audio issues that have been plaguing the game for a while now. 

Of course, the new season will bring a slew of new content, including a new Legend, but just as important are buffs, nerfs, and bug fixes.

One of the most pressing problems in the game right now is the audio. While a number of different issues are plaguing the sound, the most notable is that sometimes there’s a lack of audio for enemy footsteps.

Understandably, this is causing some major frustrations for players, as that can lead to easy deaths. Luckily, it seems like the solution is just around the corner.

One of the biggest problems with Apex Legend’s audio right now, is the lack of enemy footsteps in certain situations.

According to Apex Legends Game Director Chad Grenier in a Reddit post, the audio team has made “lots of progress” when it comes to the audio issues. Unfortunately, however, he didn’t go into any specific detail about the actual “progress” that has been made.

In addition, he also hinted that at least some of the audio issues should be fixed during the game’s Season 7 update, although some of the others will have to wait until “just after Season 7”. Grenier didn’t provide an update as to when that second update will come, meaning it could be anywhere from a week after the first patch to a month after.

Chad Grenier, Apex Legend’s game director, posted this reply on Reddit in regards to the audio issues in the game.

That last part is sure to disappoint some players who were hoping that all of them would be fixed at the same time but at least some progress is better than no progress.

Either way, fans won’t have to wait too long for the first round of fixes, as Apex Legends Season 7 is set to drop on November 10, 2020.
