Season one of Apex Legends has only just gotten underway, but it might already be set to see a fresh new face – if PlayStation is to be believed. 

The first load of seasonal content, named Wild Frontier, launched on March 19, adding plenty of fresh new content to the game. 

Octane, the first new legend, is a high-speed Adrenaline Junkie with the ability to go soaring through the skies with his launch pad and was added with the start of Wild Frontier after weeks of speculation.

Respawn EntertainmentOctane has freshened things up around Kings Canyon since joining the party.

Yet, the next installment of content during Wild Frontier, which is set to run until around June 5, may have already been hinted at on a number of official PlayStation websites – one from the United States and another from Hungary.

A description on the Hungarian PlayStation store website reads: “Two new legends will be introduced during the season, using the new weapon sets you can access as the season progresses. Plus, with every new Legend and weapon, you can get a whole new set of accessories.”

While the American website states that season one will see “new legends” dropping into the arena known as King’s Canyon.

Whether or not new legends are added during season one remains to be seen, however, there have been hints and leaks towards plenty of new legends being available to use in the battle royale.

One in particular, Wattson, appeared in leaks not long after information about Octane began popping up – and the character, who looks set to be centered around electrical abilities, is quite possibly the next to be added considering we know more about her than any of the other new Legends.

Respawn EntertainmentOver 50 million players have tried their hand at becoming an Apex Champion.

As with any leak of game information, there’s a chance that plans could change and also that wires could have been crossed, with the PlayStation stores having the wrong information out there.

However, considering the details are still live on the respective websites, it’s quite possible that PlayStation has just dropped subtle hints earlier than planned.

Apex Legends is in the backlog of Valve co-founder Gabe Newell, popularly known as Gaben, as the game industry legend thinks he can get a ton of inspiration from the unique battle royale.

Counter-Strike, Dota, Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, and many more. Gaben not only gave life to the most popular digital games marketplace, but also created some of the most beloved titles in their respective genres.

The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences Hall of Famer has had a major influence in the world of games, and he might have just identified where his next dose of game development inspiration will be coming from.

“The one game that I really want to start playing, I have no excuse, but I want to play Apex Legends,” Newell told New Zealand’s 1 NEWS. That’s one title in his games backlog that he’s really been itching to play, saying that a “bunch of people at Valve” have been grinding away in the Arena.

But always more than a gamer, Newell is keen to dive into Respawn’s battle royale since he thinks it’ll have plenty for him to learn about as he plays.

“I think I’ll enjoy playing [Apex Legends], which is always good, but I also think there’s things I’ll learn as a videogame developer from playing it,” he said. Newell mentioned that games from prolific designers like Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto are always fun, but they also seem to give insights in the craft.

The Valve boss said that he’s been trying to court more traveling companions onto Dota 2, but can’t wait to join the hordes at Valve who are entrenched in the Apex Games.

Overall, Newell’s comments are immense praise to the people at Respawn, who recently brought Apex to the Steam marketplace. A bunch of Respawn personnel also reacted to Newell’s comments with as much glee as you might expect.

“Dear Gaben if you’re out there, you bearded god: If you and your squad wanna play a few games with Respawn’s design leads and directors, hit us up! We’re big fans,” Director of Community and Communications Ryan K. Rigney said.

Even more interesting is to see what Newell could do with the inspiration he gets from Apex Legends. Valve has industry-leading titles across the FPS and MOBA genres, so it’ll be interesting to see how much he takes from Respawn’s battle royale.
