Data miners have been doing their best to dig through the game’s files since the recent update – trying to find what’s coming next to the hugely popular free-to-play battle royale title.
Multiple new things have already been found. Two new weapons, a Flamethrower and Remote Turret, were uncovered on March 8, while hints at an in-game ‘night mode’ plus a ‘Community Happy Hour’ were also revealed later in the day.
Now, there have been more hints at the possible additions of wallrunning and superjumping.
Wallrunning is a key gameplay element from Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall series and has been rumored for Apex Legends since its launch on February 4.
Thanks to @RealApexLeaks, it looks like there have been more files added to the game for wallrunning – which could completely change how the game plays and open up a whole new level of verticality for players.
Code has also been uncovered regarding superjumping, which was also a part of the Titanfall series – allowing players to reach great heights with ease.
However, these files could simply be leftovers from the Titanfall series, as Apex Legends had originally started life as the third installment in the popular franchise.
A number of leaks, that surfaced shortly after the arrival of Apex Legends, have already been dismissed as files from the original Titanfall 3 development.
There is also no official word on if these movement elements will be released into the game. However, if they are added, it’s possible that it could be implemented with the start of Apex Legends’ Season One update – which is expected at some point in March.
Respawn have already noted that a number of characters will see major tuning with the release of season one – which means additional changes to the game are not out of the question.
As with any leak, there’s a chance we may never see these aspects added at all due to one reason or another.
