A huge Apex Legends leak happened overnight with Nine upcoming characters, skins, new maps, and more are making their way online visible for everybody. If legit, these leaks appear to be spoiling Apex Legends updates for the next year or two.
Originally uploaded to R/ApexUncovered, a subreddit dedicated to leaks and datamines of the popular battle royale, and originally reported by CharlieIntel, these leaks came in the form of a folder containing files detailing many upcoming additions to the game. This folder has since been removed, however the content has been archived and republished meaning these leaks are here to stay for anyone who takes the time to seek them out.
The most notable of these leaks is a character select screen, featuring nine currently unreleased characters and their abilities. The most detailed of these comes in the form of Newcastle, a new Legend with a unique model indicating she’s the character to be released next, as the other eight are currently training dummies.
Next come the new maps. The spotlight is primarily on a full-fledged battle royale map called Divided Moon, but there are also a number of new arena maps in varying degrees of completion.
Then there are heirlooms! The leaks show both Crypto and Valkyries heirlooms. The former and electrified sword comes closest with full idle animations and color, while Valkyries is a spear with no texture work or many finished animations.
The latest major leaks are new weapons, two of which have been revealed. The first is a burst assault rifle called the Nemesis that uses energy ammo. There’s also a new laser sight attachment that appears to reduce the spread of hipfire, although the exact details of how it works aren’t known at this time.
What we’ve mentioned here is just part of the full leak to surprise a few things for those who don’t want to get the full shock of future updates. But it’s not like you have to do a lot of digging to find this stuff online. Much of this will surely change before it is officially revealed, as is to be expected with any unfinished content that appears online ahead of its time, this will surely impact community expectations and the morale of those working on the game .
We reached out to a Respawn Entertainment representative for comment and have not yet received a response.
