A recent Apex Legends leaks offered the first look at some of the future Legends that may be joining the game soon, and now there are much clearer images of each one made available. 

UPDATE – March 14

Reddit user ‘FrozenFroh’ has taken the time to upscale and edit the leaked datamined game files containing images and information about upcoming Legends.

Here is the high resolution image, along the user’s own speculation as to how these Legends may work once added.

Original Story

Apex Legends fans might finally be able to put faces to the names of future Legends that were leaked in February after a list of player cards was discovered including eight new names alongside the Legends currently in the game.

Of those, only two – Octane and Wattson – had any further details revealed until a recent leak showed the first images of five additional Legends. Now, however, a clearer look at all of the unreleased Legends – a total of 10, including the ones already known about – is available thanks to leaker @Shrugtal.

Sargent179 also created a concept of the Legend select screen using these leaked images to offer a look at how they could appear in-game.

The roster of Apex Legends characters is set to grow significantly.

It’s currently unclear what the release schedule might look like for new Legends in Apex. Respawn Entertainment have confirmed that each Season – of which there will be four in 2019 – will include new Legends, but how many may release in each remains unknown.

With how much information has been leaked about Octane compared to the other Legends, it seems likely that he will feature in Season One, which is expected to kick off on March 12 – although again, Respawn have yet to officially confirm this.

With so many Legends apparently already in development, however, it seems increasingly possible that each Season could introduce two or even three new Legends. Behind Octane, Wattson appears closest to a potential release, with details such as abilities also leaked.

As with all leaks, it’s possible that the information could be inaccurate, or that Respawn could change direction between now and the actual releases. With Season One expected to kick off on March 12, however, it’s likely that fans will soon have a much clearer picture of what new content to expect over the next three months at least.

Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage make surprise return to Apex Legends

In an impromptu update, Respawn Entertainment have delighted Apex Legends fans by bringing back both the Kings Canyon map and the Mirage Voyage point of interest for a limited time.

The Apex community lit up with a blend of surprise and joy when users logged onto the popular battle royale and found out that Kings Canyon was reintroduced to the game’s playlist options. As an added bonus, the game’s most infamous party boat, the Mirage Voyage, also spontaneously re-emerged as a landing spot.

A common emotional accompaniment to surprise is confusion and this geographical return was not lacking in either, according to Twitter reactions. The option to play on Kings Row was originally speculated to be a mistake because the playlist choice was only showing up for some players and mysteriously appearing then disappearing for others. 

But, following an official announcement from the Apex Legends Twitter account, it’s confirmed that the returns of Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage are no mistake. In fact, they will be around for a full week.

Echoing the enthusiasm of their fans, Apex’s social media account delivered the news with a simple nod to jubilations: “It’s party time.”

And, as fans have been discovering in the brief time the map’s been made available, there are some tweaks to Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage this time around — including some notable teasers and easter eggs. 

In one such piece of subtle content, there is a voicemail left to Mirage by his mother, Evelyn Witt, which can be found on a phone or tablet device that’s been left on one of the boat’s green couches. While it’s not a groundbreaking piece of lore, it does add to the game’s longrunning storylines.

This marks the first time since August 2020 that Mirage Voyage is available to contest in Apex Legends and the first time ever that it has sailed into Kings Canyon instead of World’s Edge. This blend of returns is both a chance for nostalgia and for content overlap.

Although the new playlist option will only be available until January 21, fans will be curious to know if this means Respawn intends on continuing to spontaneously bring back limited playlist offerings in the future.
