Respawn Entertainment are ramping up towards the release of a brand new legend in Apex Legends Season 4, but will it be Forge or Revenant? One of the writers working on the game has dropped some more clues.

It was first announced that Forge would be the new legend coming in Season 4, but a surprise twist saw Revenant (another leaked legend) literally stab him in the back.

With Forge now (seemingly) dead, Revenant is set to take his place in the Apex Games. However, Tom Casiello, one of the writers working on Apex Legends, has hinted there is more twist to come in the story yet.

As fans speculate about the fate of Forge, with some suggesting Revenant actually killed a body-double, the writer his given some cryptic hints.

On January 27, Casiello tweeted “there’s another whole week until Season Four. Wonder what will happen between now and then…” leaving fans seeking with more questions than answers.

In a follow-up tweet, Casiello responded directly to speculation about Forge having a body-double. Fans noticed that the Forge who was stabbed had a scar on his eye, but Forge in the official teasers does not.

There is a distinctive difference between the Forge that was killed, and the one in teasers.

When a fan asked about the peculiar missing scar, the writer simply responded “Good question. Only time will tell…” This could mean that the scar is nothing at all, but it seems the writer was aware of the difference already.

Finally, as fans are still waiting patiently on official confirmation of the new legend, Casiello teased that the “story’s just getting started…”

As he says, there is still time before Season 4 begins for yet another twist in the story. Some have even speculated that Rosie, another leaked legend, could come back to help Forge.

Considering the developers have spent so much time making Forge’s backstory, and a full set of abilities, it seems unlikely that they would completely delete the character at this point.

The exact start date for the new season is February 4, and Respawn no doubt have some more tricks up their sleeve.

If you saw the new Apex Legends map called Olympus and thought to yourself “I’d like to explore that without having to deal with annoying enemies”, then Respawn Entertainment has the perfect solution: a no-weapon LTM called Olympus Preview.

With the start of Season 7, Respawn Entertainment is adding a brand new map to Apex Legends called Olympus. After being rumored for quite a while now, the developers finally confirmed the news during the Season 7 trailer, and gave fans an even deeper dive into the map during the gameplay reveal.

While that’s all well and good, being forced to jump into a map that you don’t know and immediately fight other players trying to experience the same thing is always a bit annoying in battle royale games. Luckily, the developers seem to have a solution, and it’s a cool concept.

New Olympus Preview LTM

With the start of Season 7, Respawn will be including a new limited-time mode called Olympus Preview, which will allow players to explore and experience everything the new map has to offer without having to deal with other opponents that immediately try to kill you.

The new 30-player mode will give fans an opportunity to jump into the map and test it out to their heart’s content. They’ll even be able to test the circles.

When a new map gets added to a battle royale game, not just Apex Legends, a lot of players just want a few matches to explore and experience it before having to fight others, so this helps solve that problem.

Soon players will be able to jump into the new Apex map thanks to a weapon-free mode called Olympus Preview.

It also helps fans familiarize themselves with it so that they aren’t jumping in completely blind. The first Ranked split will be on Olympus too, so if you’re a competitive player, this new LTM comes highly recommended.

It’ll be interesting to see Apex continues this trend as time goes on. Obviously, that would require them to keep adding new maps but, nevertheless, it’s a fun concept to say the least.
