Apex Legends writer drops clues about Forge’s ‘death’ ahead of Season 4

For a while, fans thought Forge as going to be the next character added for Apex Legends Season 4, but he was subsequently killed off – or was he?

Respawn decided to channel their inner Mirage and deploy a bamboozle on the whole community by having Forge assassinated in a teaser video, which revealed Revenant to be the true new character.

Just as players finally started coming around to Forge and liking him as a legend, the rug was pulled out from under them.

Nobody is denying Revenant isn’t a cool character, but it does seem a bit strange to start fleshing out a new one, who has their own datamined abilities, just to have them unceremoniously killed off.

Hold your ziplines though – Forge might not be dead according to some new evidence.

Forge might not be gone for good.

Apex Legends writer Tom Casiello, who has already dropped hints about Forge’s fate, welcomed actor Darin De Paul to the team, revealing that he voices both Revenant and Forge. He then goes on a tangent hinting that Forge might not have been murdered in cold blood like players first thought.

“Hmmmm…guess that means we have the voice of Forge available to us anytime we want, doesn’t it,” he said before going back and forth about the new character being deceased. He ended up leaving the door open to a return by saying he’s “maybe” dead, which definitely has fans asking questions.

This revelation comes after a Respawn developer explicitly said the character was dead, so now we really don’t know what to expect with Forge.

With each of the previous seasons, we’ve only seen one new character each time, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we can’t receive two in Season 4.

Season 4 is fast approaching.

Revenant could still show up at the beginning and then maybe midway through, we could see Forge somehow pop up looking for revenge on this murderous robot.

The possibilities are near endless and considering how much of a narrative the developers are spinning out of this incident, we’re sure we haven’t seen the end of the short-lived character.

Apex Legends Season 4 kicks off February 4 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Apex Legends Season 7 is almost here, and that means changes to characters. So, we’ve rounded up all the buffs that Respawn have confirmed so far.

With each new Apex Legends season, players are always looking forward to getting their hands on a new Legend as well as seeing what’s been changed to existing Legends, weapons, and items.

As Season 7 is on the horizon, Respawn have begun to roll out their teasers – with a familiar-looking UFO turning up on both Kings Canyon and World’s Edge.

Aside from that, the devs have also been planting seeds about what buffs and nerfs are coming in the new season. So, we’ve rounded up the buffs that we know about so far.

Mirage

As one of Apex’s most popular characters, players have been desperate for Respawn to give Mirage a power increase, even after his abilities rework.

Those changes have always been on the horizon, as devs have answered numerous questions with positives answers about buffs, and those promises will finally come to fruition with the start of Season 7.

Daniel Klein, a game designer for Respawn, confirmed that they’ve been testing changes to his Life of the Party ult, so that could be the main change that the Holographic Trickster receives next season.

Octane

Octane is also confirmed to be getting some positive treatment, but Respawn say it will only be a “tiny buff,” so no indication exactly what it will be yet. 

Rampart

As for Rampart, while a buff has been confirmed, there haven’t been any hints as to what it could entail. Since her introduction, players have made a number of suggestions – including being able to move around while firing her minigun. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see on that front.

Pathfinder

Pathfinder will also be receiving a change to the cooldown on his grapple ability. However, the last time this was labeled a buff, it actually turned out to be a nerf

Audio

Not a buff as such, but Respawn have also confirmed that lots of progress has been made on audio problems, which have been plaguing the game for months, and these fixes will be coming in Season 7.

As for what else is coming in Season 7, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know here. We’ll just have to wait until November 4, when the new season starts, to see it all in action.
