Random duo in Apex Legends are now getting married and go viral

The social power of online gaming is on fine display once again, as a YouTuber who goes by ‘First Spoken Gaming’ has told the incredible story of how he found the love of his life through playing Apex Legends.

Apex is a team-oriented battle royale, that players can either run as a trio or a duo. Of course, if you don’t have a friend or two to play with, you can simply queue up with other random players.

This obviously has a mixed bag of results — sometimes you’ll get a cooperative team, who work together as a unit to win the match. Other times, you’ll get rather useless teammates who would prefer to simply play for themselves.

Apex Legends has only been out for just over a year – but it was enough time for this couple to get meet each other and get married.

But, for two lucky players, their random matchmaking experience went far better than anyone ever could have imagined.

Queueing up for a game of duos, First Spoken Gaming matched with ‘irispixels’, and says that they instantly hit it off.

“[We] became best friends,” he says in his video chronicling their relationship. “I introduced her to my family, the thing is… she lived in another state, but I knew she was all I ever wanted, and that wasn’t going to stop me.

The pair filmed their first time meeting in real-life, and that same day went back and played some Apex Legends together, this time right next to each other.

A year later, First Spoken asked her to be his wife, and she said yes.

Incredibly, the couple went viral on TikTok after he shared their story. His usual Apex Legends videos on TikTok would get a few thousand views, but the story of meeting his now-wife has already reached over half a million views, and 147,000 likes.

The couple thanked Respawn and EA for making and releasing Apex Legends, as it has essentially changed both of their lives forever.

This isn’t the first story of people meeting their significant others in-game either, although it’s maybe a sign that Apex Legends’ random matchmaking system isn’t always that toxic after all…

Apex Legends leaks reveal Pathfinder Town Takeover coming in Season 7

Pathfinder will be the next Apex Legends character to get a Town Takeover, and the first to have their own personalized POI on new map Olympus, according to playtester images that have leaked ahead of the Season 7 update.

Town Takeovers are one of the most exciting events in Apex Legends. Not only do they bring new lore and backstories for their focal legend, but they also add special points of interest to the battle royale map as well, branded in unique ways.

Octane, Wraith, and Crypto have already enjoyed Town Takeovers on Kings Canyon, while Apex Legends’ second map, World’s Edge, hosted Mirage and Bloodhound events over the past few seasons. Now it looks like it’s finally Pathfinders turn.

Pathfinder looks set to become the first Apex Legends character with a Town Takeover on Olympus.

According to leaked playtester images shared by dataminer Biast12, the loveable robot will be getting a huge POI when Apex Legends shifts to new map Olympus in Season 7. 

The new Pathfinder point of interest will be a massive boxing arena.

In the leaked POI image, which is slightly blurry and back-and-white, Pathfinder can be seen wearing his heirloom gloves, and posing on a poster emblazoned with his name. The circle building behind it certainly looks like a sports stadium too.

Biast12 also said the leaked image only shows “part of [the whole] Pathfinder’s Town Takeover.” There is also allegedly a stadium “on the other side of the wall.”

Considering it’s just a single image that’s leaked so far, it’s tough to get a good picture of what the Town Takeover may actually look like. Biast12 did tease it could have “a bunch of zip lines everywhere” after replying to one fan’s comment.

When will Pathfinder’s Town Takeover start?

The Pathfinder Town Takeover will be in Season 7, and appears to be hosted on Olympus. Beyond that, however, a possible start date for the event is a little hazy.

The Mirage Voyage point of interest is the closest Town Takeover date-wise that we have to go off. It was released on Dec. 12, 2019, two months into Season 3. If Respawn sticks to the same formula, we could see Pathfinder’s arena at a similar time of year.

In fact, it could basically be bang on the same week. Season 7 arrives on Nov. 4 ⁠— yes, it’s still set for then, despite a little update scare this week ⁠— and eight weeks after that lands on Tuesday, December 8. That’s about as close as you can get!

Town Takeover teasers usually start earlier too. We may start to see Pathfinder teasers for the arena in mid-November, once we’ve settled into life on Olympus.

Pathfinder fans will be loving Apex Legends Season 7, from the sounds of it.

For now, we’ll just have to wait for official confirmation from Respawn about the exciting new takeover. The developers have never commented on Town Takeover leaks before, so the first time we see anything new could be in-game on Dec. 8.

Whether they comment or not, however, it looks like there’s a lot of exciting new content on the way at the start of next month. Season 7 will finally arrive, along with a new Legend, a brand-new map, vehicles, clubs, and more.
