Prominent Apex Legends dataminer ‘That1MiningGuy’ has found and leaked new audio files for the yet-to-be-announced Revenant Legend.

With Season 3: Meltdown winding down in Apex Legends, fans are starting to look at all of the new content that Season 4 will bring, specifically the next Legend.

While no one knows for sure who or what the next Legends will be, there is overwhelming speculation based on leaks and rumors that it will be Revenant, a mysterious robotic character with human consciousness.

There have been a good amount of information and visuals leaked regarding Revenant, and most recently, That1MiningGuy discovered some audio files to add to the list.

There are six audio files in total and it appears that they’re all for one of the Legend’s supposed abilities, called ‘Mark for Death.’

What is Mark for Death?

Mark for Death was initially leaked as one of Revenant’s six total abilities. No, that’s not a type. Apparently, unlike any of the other Legends that currently exist in the game, Revenant was supposed to have two sets of abilities – one for his Regular Stance and one for his Shadow Stance.

However, following the massive v3.1 update, Revenant’s game files were updated to no longer include the Shadow Stance, consolidating the two sets into a single set of four abilities, including Mark for Death.

Respawn Entertainment / Alex Graner - TwitterA picture of what appears to include Revenant was tweeted out by a Respawn dev during Octane’s Town Takeover earlier in 2019.

The way it will supposedly work is that Revenant will be able to fire a poison dagger at any enemy player, allowing the Legend to track the enemy’s location for up to 60 seconds.

The discovery of the audio files is further evidence that this ability will be in the game at some point. That1MiningGuy also uploaded all of the new sounds to a SoundCloud page for everyone to access.

When is Revenant coming to Apex Legends?

With there being so much information leaked about so many unreleased Legends, it’s hard to tell which one will be next to make its debut, especially since Respawn Entertainment always remains silent until the official announcement.

However, there’s no doubt that Revenant is far along in its development, especially since a developer even tweeted this image, making it one of the likely candidates for Season 4.

At this point, it’s more of a wait-and-see game more than anything else. That said, you can catch up on all of the leaked details, abilities, lore, and visuals by checking out our ‘Who is Revenant’ info hub.

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.
