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.

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.
