Respawn Entertainment has confirmed when the Apex Legends community will get a first look at the upcoming Season 4 update and here’s everything you need to know about the reveal.

Apex Legends Season 4 is closely approaching and the developers at Respawn Entertainment have been mostly tight-lipped until today. While a few key features may have slipped through the cracks already, a full unveiling is set to reveal a plethora of information regarding the upcoming content drop.

What to expect

While in-game teases have already made their mark, and various aspects of the new content drop have seemingly leaked early, there’s no telling exactly what the developers will focus on throughout the reveal stream.

January 21 introduced the very first tease as what appears to be a ship, can be seen floating in the sky. Players have been debating whether this could mean the end of World’s Edge and the start of a new map, or if it might be a new Legend making their presence known before dropping into the game in Season 4.

Potential leaks have indicated a wide array of fresh content that could be made available with the upcoming season. From private lobbies to evolving armor and even datamined looks at an upcoming Legend in Forge, there are plenty of topics for the developers to cover throughout the reveal stream.

When does Season 4 start?

While the upcoming broadcast is likely to lock in an exact time that the update will go live, we already know that Season 4 is set to begin on February 4.

With plenty of new content supposedly on the way, the update could be quite significant in size, similar to the Season 2 and Season 3 updates which weighed in at 20GB and 7.7GB respectively on console.

One dedicated Apex Legends fan and filmmaker has shared an incredible CGI short video, introducing the Technological Tracker Bloodhound. 

Community creations have become a common sight in the Apex Legends fan base, with players of Respawn’s Titanfall battle royale regularly sharing their cosplays, artwork and more.

This video falls into the ‘more’ category, and takes the form of an introductory video for Bloodhound, one of the game’s original legends. Bloodhound has never hit the heights of a Wraith or Gibraltar, but has been a fairly solid option throughout Apex Legends’ six seasons.

Bloodhound has been a staple of Apex Legends since its release back in February of 2019.

The incredible video creation comes by way of CGI animator at GoldenLane Studios. Their Reddit username is ‘DPotatoManiac‘, and they shared their work to the game’s subreddit on October 10. It has since garnered insane praise, amassing nearly 50,000 upvotes in less than 12 hours.

A cinematic introduction to the Technological Tracker, the video sweeps over Apex Legends’ plush environment and shows Bloodhound taking out enemies with their trademark stealth. Hidden in the bushes, stalking their prey, the video provides a terrifying look at what makes Bloodhound such a formidable legend.

The creation blew the minds of many Redditors, and even garnered praise from Respawn Entertainment. Like us, they appeared stunned at what one fan was able to produce purely out of love of the game.

Principal animator Moy Parra said: “That was outstanding!!! Thank you so much for sharing this. I can appreciate the amount of work that went into creating this piece, it turned out GREAT!” Similarly, Ryan Rigney, Respawn’s Director of Communications, commented: “You’re insane. Actually mind-blown by how sick this is.”

The video’s creator, whose real name is Slava Alekseev, said: “Thank you so much for your support guys! I never expected to see even a fraction of the attention the previous post got. The Apex community is the best.” Videos like this are one of the main reasons it is.
