A new leak from Apex Legends dataminer ‘That1MiningGuy’ gave fans a full look at Revenant, after the Legend was noticeably absent from the Season 4 dev stream on January 23.

After the events of Season 3, mainly the Shadowfall LTM co-starring the mysterious mech and the mounting leaks, fans of the battle royale were sure that Revenant was next in line to be released into the Apex Games.

But players were surprised when the biggest reveal was that Forge would actually be headlining the launch of Season 4 – that is until new clues surfaced pointing towards a double-release including Revenant.

While Forge is confirmed to be coming in Season 4, new evidence suggests there could be a total of two Legends dropping soon.

It seems like That1MiningGuy stumbled onto a featured image showcasing the Legend by changing a single character in the web address for an image asset on EA’s site.

The clerical leak resulted in a clear view of the red robot holding a metal skull in front of a backdrop with skyscrapers and a volcano.

This qualifies as a leak since it wasn’t officially unveiled by the devs, but the image is sourced directly from the EA site.

Now, evidence is piling up that Respawn might be planning a two-Legend release either on Season 4’s launch or throughout the events of the game’s new chapter.

Eagle-eyed Apex Legends fans spotted Revenant in the Season 4 web page, after people noticed that the Legend was noticeably absent from the new content coming to the game.

Fans noticed a distortion in the background image of Season 4’s official site, and a quick outline for the glitched portion of the image revealed a silhouette that’s unmistakably linked to the character.

The way Respawn has handled Legend releases so far has a few members of the community paranoid that the devs could be up to something.

“I’ll probably end up being wrong but Forge came out of nowhere,” Apex loremaster ‘FrozenFroh’ said. “On the devstream, they use black and white for Forge’s Season 4, but in the end it changes to RED… Revenant had the Halloween tease and other datamines I won’t mention… I’m sure Forge is coming, but Revenant might be sooner than expected, and this might just be a double bamboozle.”

The community was thrilled to see that Respawn slipped in a cheeky reference to a character previously introduced in the Apex cannon, but it’s starting to look like players could get two Legends in the new season.

Apex Legends developer Daniel Klein has revealed the five most popular legends from Season 7 – and it should come as no surprise that Horizon is right up there already.

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, it’s been easy for players to chop and change the legends they use seeing as a new character is introduced which each major, season starting update. 

The new character always receives huge attention as players want to test out the new content, but sometimes, they don’t stick around and can immediately fall to the bottom of the pile once fans are seemingly bored with them. 

In the case of Horizon and Apex Legends Season 7, she has been able to stick around as one of the most played legends – even cementing her spot amongst some of the battle royale’s long-term favorites.

Speaking on The Third Party: An Apex Legends podcast, Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Klein revealed how the list of most played legends in the new season had started to shape up.

“Wraith, Bloodhound, Horizon, Octane, and then Lifeline, that’s the pick order right now,” Klein told the podcast hosts in relation to the top five, noting that Horizon had started to settle in the top five after her initial explosion in use. 

Octane being so high might surprise a few players, and as Klein points out, he doesn’t “win a lot of games,” but he’s so fun to play because of his speedy abilities. Klein also noted that there is an “interesting situation” with Bloodhound because they have a high pick rate, but they don’t win a lot of games.

Additionally, the Apex developer revealed that Loba has also seen a rise in her trios win rate after her Ultimate received a bit of a shake up at the start of Season 7. Though, he didn’t note just how popular and used that she has become. 

As the season unfolds, some currently lesser-played legends might see a boost in usage after Respawn rolls out patches, so, we’ll have to wait and see as to whether or not the top five is shaken up or if it stays the same moving forward.
