‘Apex Legends’ leak: Videos and datamine texts reveal design and ability details on nine unannounced Legends
“Defiance,” the 12th and latest season of “Apex Legends,” has yet to conclude, but players might already have enough details about the next Legends Respawn will introduce. A massive leak containing videos and datamine texts is circulating online, revealing detailed descriptions of nine unannounced characters.
The original folder containing the massive “Apex Legends” leak was uploaded on a file hosting site early Tuesday. While that has been taken down as of this writing, fans can still view the leaked gameplay videos and round-up posts on Reddit to read through the supposedly upcoming Legends’ descriptions.
In this round-up post on Reddit, a user who has perused the leaked videos and datamine files suspect the Legend named Newcastle could be introduced in “Apex Legends” after Mad Maggie. The same user noted that Newcastle’s character model appears to be the most finished out of the nine Legends shown in the leaks.
If that turns out to be the case in “Apex Legends” season 13, the game would be getting a new defense specialist as Newcastle is described as a “mobile defender.” The character reportedly has an ability to protect his teammates while they are being revived by using a “revive shield.” The leaks also indicate Newcastle can jump to a certain location and create a barricade to protect allies.
There are a number of support Legends listed in the leak, including Conduct described as an “empathetic shielder.” The character’s passive ability is reportedly called Capacitance, which allows for a faster shield recharge whenever allies are nearby. Caliber is another unannounced “Apex Legends” character seen in the leaks described as an arms dealer, who can wield a third weapon. It also appears that Respawn is working on a sniper specialist appropriately named Vantage, who can use a custom rifle with a scanner and can activate a damage boost for the team.
Meanwhile, there is also a leaked video that may have shown new Arena maps coming to “Apex Legends.” Another media file reportedly showed a preview of Crypto and Valkyrie’s heirlooms as well.
It should be noted, though, that most assets revealed in the leak are still unfinished. That means Respawn could still apply major changes before these features are officially launched in the upcoming seasons of “Apex Legends.”
