With Apex Legends Season 3 drawing to a close, players are getting hyped in preparation for what’s next, and are predicting what’s in-store as we look ahead to Season 4.

Apex Legends’ third season brought a ton of changes to the battle royale. From the brand new map World’s Edge, to a new Legend in the form of Crypto, it was the biggest update to date.

While Respawn’s bold move left many players yearning for Kings Canyon’s return, the third installment titled ‘Meltdown’ has been an unprecedented success, since October was the game’s top grossing month since launch.

Fans predict Apex Legends Season 4

Given Respawn’s Season 3 efforts thus far, fans are eagerly looking forward to the next installment. Scheduled to start on February 4 (the one-year anniversary of the release date), Season 4 will likely change up the meta yet again. 

In terms of what we’ve seen so far, each season has introduced one new Legend to their now diverse list of characters. However, beyond that, Respawn has introduced various elements to their battle royale.

That hasn’t stopped one fan from posting a ‘Bingo Card’ to the Apex Legends subreddit, which attempts to predict what will be added in February.

While the Reddit user chimed in with various inevitable character buffs/nerfs, they also probed a bunch of features which fans have been longing for in Apex Legends, such as post-match replays and a dedicated spectator mode.

From the addition of a PvE mode to the return of Kings Canyon. If the original Apex Games arena is set to make a comeback, where better to introduce a brand new PvE mode to celebrate Apex Legends’ one year anniversary. 

Indeed, the Redditor aptly predicts that an anniversary event will be bundled into Season 4, which is pretty much a given.

Right at the top of the user’s prediction list is a plea for Respawn to remove skill-based matchmaking — a topic that has caused quite the stir among the Apex Legends pros and faithful fans alike.

The fan also anticipates that two Legends will be added (breaking the usual trend of one per season). This is perhaps a tad overzealous, considering that the season will likely be littered with a shed load of fresh content in the form of limited-time events. 

Given that a complete Legend profile has essentially surfaced for Revenant from in-game leaks, it is highly likely that we will see the character during Season 4, after their brief appearance in the Fight or Fright LTM.

Apex Legends hidden message reveals Mirage is related to Titanfall 2 characters

A secret lore drop found on the Mirage Voyage – brought back by Respawn in the lead-up to Season 8 – has revealed a close connection between the Holographic Trickster and two characters from Titanfall 2.

In a surprise move on January 15, Respawn threw the original Apex Legends’ map – Kings Canyon – back into the rotation for the first time in Season 7. This version of Kings Canyon features the Mirage Voyage airship, hovering over the remains of Skulltown.

While pro players and content creators largely criticized Kings Canyon in Season 6 – leading to its absence from the rotation in Season 7 – the announcement was met with support from the community, including praise for bringing the Mirage Voyage to Kings Canyon for the first time.

The airship is not the only new addition in Kings Canyon. A hidden voice message on a phone revealed a connection between the game’s loveable jokester Mirage and two characters from Respawn’s previous franchise: Titanfall 2.

A hidden voice message has revealed that Mirage is the nephew of two Titanfall 2 characters: Davis and Droz.

The message from Evelyn Witt – Mirage’s mother – begins with an imitation of Kuben Blisk (another Titanfall 2 character with ties to Apex Legends), then switches to a more personal tone. Evelyn covers a range of topics, including her on-going struggle with what appears to be dementia.

Halfway through the message, she drops a bombshell when mentioning two of Mirage’s uncles, Droz and Davis. Titanfall 2 fans will already be familiar with those characters: both were members of ‘The 6-4’ mercenary group and helped Jack Cooper defeat Titanfall 2’s antagonists, the IMC.

Evelyn also says that her brothers would “always make me laugh, like Elliot.” Fans of Droz and Davis will certainly remember their funny banter during Titanfall 2’s mission ‘The Ark’, and it appears the two mercs passed their sense of humor down to their nephew Elliot.

Some Apex Legends players have already gone back and found other connections between the pair and Mirage. In a short clip posted to Reddit by ‘u/R0NiR’, Davis and Droz can be seen taking a selfie during a Titanfall 2 scene, something Mirage fans will be very familiar with seeing.

This is far from the first tangible connection between Apex Legends and Titanfall 2, which share the same in-game universe. Previous hints from Respawn include a Jack Cooper crossover, Bloodhound concept art, and appearances from Titanfall 2 characters like the simulacrum Ash.

Respawn has previously shut down rumors regarding the development of a Titanfall 3, to the disappointment of many fans. Despite no confirmed plans for a new Titanfall installment, the Apex Legends developer continues to tease fans with new tie-ins between the two franchises.
