Respawn Entertainment have released a cryptic clue that suggests the Leviathans that roam around the outside of the Apex Legends map may cause huge problems for players in the near future.

Since Apex Legends launched, players have noticed the massive creatures in the water that surrounds Kings Canyon, and while they originally stood in one place, they have started to move inland towards the play area.

Now, developers Respawn appear to have addressed the animals movement, and give a stark warning that they may not be friendly when they reach dry land.

In an Instagram post on June 12 from the official Apex Legends account, a message titled “L001 > DATA LOG AZ71P” is shown, with the “L001” portion of the caption apparently referring to one of the Leviathans.

The message reads: “L001 is moving southbound at a rate of ten klicks per hour after a sixteen-hour rest interval. This is yet another significant rest-time reduction. We suspect L001 is exhibiting signs of territorial behavior or distress. We will continue gathering data and attempt to determine the issue.”

Stuck to the top of a screen is a post-it note, which reads “What’s wrong with Rosie?”, which could be referring to one of the beasts, or to a possible new Legend who was mentioned in the game’s files at launch.

It appears that the Leviathans are keen to get back on land, with an image from the Origin login page showing the creatures standing on the island beside The Repulser, which was used to keep them at bay but appears to be broken.

The Apex Legends Season 2 trailer also appears to show players zooming past the eye of one of these monstrous creatures, so it seems certain that they will invade Kings Canyon imminently.

With Season 2 set to kick off on July 2, players should keep an eye on the creatures to see if their invasion is the final act of Season 1, or used to kick off the new season.

With the recent arrival of Season 7, Apex Legends fans are jumping into Olympus with all of their favorite Legends. One voice actor of the non-binary Bloodhound recently shared what they sound like prior to vocal edits.

Arriving alongside the launch of Apex Legends back in 2019, Bloodhound was one of the first Legends available for players to utilize in matches. Billed as a legendary hunter, this Technological Tracker is the first non-binary character in the hit battle royale.

As the Apex seasons have progressed, the character has become increasingly powerful and seen their popularity grown.

So, in a peek behind the scenes, the voice actor behind Bloodhound has revealed how they sound before Respawn adds a few tweaks to make it sound as it does now.

Bloodhound is, quite simply, one of Apex’s most popular legends.

The voice behind the mask

In a recent post to their TikTok account, voice actor Allegra Clark shared a clip of what the voice lines she records sound like prior to editing.

Stating that “what I do is only part of the vocal performance,” Clark details that a cool gas-mask vocal effect also pitches down her voice about two steps.

While the direction Allegra was originally given was that of an “androgynous, badass place,” she then goes on to share what Bloodhound’s iconic voice sounds like pre-editing. With a stark contrast to her regular voice, Clark’s vocal modulation and Icelandic/Old Norse accent instantly show off that recognizable cadence they have with their iconic lines.

The fans react

Shared on Reddit by IIIlandist, fans have been reacting to the non-binary character’s lines being heard without the filter.

One commenter stated: “when she said Mozambique here I felt that,” with another adding, “when she said Mozambique here I died.” Fans of the character were excited to hear how their vocal performance came about and seeing the effort of production that goes into creating the Legend.

It’s incredibly interesting seeing behind the scenes information regarding voice work and the like. This clip shared by Clark is no exception.
