After Revenant’s blockbuster entrance into the Apex Games in Season 4, all eyes are looking forward to the next Legend – and it appears Loba is next to make her debut.

Ever since Apex Legends’ Season 4 cinematic trailer hit the big screen, fans everywhere have been dissecting every millisecond of footage to learn more about the mysterious young girl that was left in the wake of Revenant’s destructive rampage.

All clues point towards that young girl being Loba; a previously leaked character, also known as Rosie, that has been on Respawn’s radar for some time.

Revenant’s actions in the Assimilation trailer left Loba mourning for her family.

While we already have a pretty comprehensive character profile for Loba – including a leak of her Tactical Ability animation – we have very little information on when she will be added to the roster of Legends.

Given how much of the Assimilation narrative revolved around her character prologue, it would be logical to assume that Loba will be the next Legend to be introduced to the Apex Games.

However, a supposed image of the in-game files that was posted to the Apex Legends subreddit, appears to hint towards Loba most definitely being the next character.

Cross-reference the above list with a previously leaked list from Respawn and there is a much more solid case for Loba being the next Legend.

Combine all of the above with the fact that there have been some in-game teasers of a wolf running around the Plant Harvester in World’s Edge, and this paints a pretty vivid picture of who Respawn are looking to cast into Apex Legends ever-expanding roster.

Alongside Loba being added next, the list also confirms that Rampart and Blisk’s entrance into the Apex Games is imminent.

Leakers previously posted an image of upcoming Legends which allegedly surfaced from Respawn’s studio.

Although a date isn’t specified from the leaks, many have hypothesized the upcoming mid-season split to be the perfect opportunity to introduce Loba — as we look set to return to Kings Canyon for an extended period of time. If not, we may have to wait until Season 5.

While all of the aforementioned information certainly does look promising, it is important to take any leak with a pinch of salt — after all, Respawn might just be throwing a spanner in the works?

Apex Legends Season 8 launch trailer reveals Fuse abilities and destroyed Kings Canyon

Respawn Entertainment have given a first look at the new Legend Fuse and his abilities in action, plus the obliteration of Kings Canyon, in the Apex Legends Season 8 Launch trailer.

Fuse, real name Walter Fitzroy is the eighth post-launch Legend to join the Apex games, bringing the total to 16 – double what the game had at launch.

As his name implies, his abilities are all about explosives, and he’s a blow-it-up-first, ask questions later, type character. Hailing from Salvo – a new planet we’ve only just found out about – he’s also bringing a new weapon with him, the 30-30 repeater.

The launch trailer, released on January 21, gives us our first look at two key parts of the upcoming season: Fuse’s ability kit, and the new-look Kings Canyon.

Fuse abilities in Apex Legends

Although not completely explained, this trailer gives us a look at Fuse using his abilities, which he’ll have in the Apex games.

His ultimate, which was already teased in-game, sees him drop a mortar-like bomb, which then explodes into flames, damaging anyone nearby.

We can also see him launch grenades from his arm, which will be his tactical ability.

Kings Canyon

Salvo’s unification with the Syndicate was meant to be a joyous occasion, but Fuse’s old friends are certainly not happy about – and decided to crash the party.

This has left Kings Canyon in ruins – ready for a new Season of massive map changes. Respawn have become experts at weaving the game’s lore into actual gameplay, and this is just another example of that.

In the trailer, it appears that Artillery and Slum Lakes have both been destroyed, but we may have to wait until the gameplay trailer to see the full extent of the damage.

Season 8 launches on consoles, PC, and possibly Nintendo Switch, on February 2.
