Christmas got here actual early for the Apex Legends leak and datamining neighborhood, with a Google Drive folder full of screenshots and photographs of unreleased maps, legends, weapons and cosmetics appeared on the ApexUncovered subreddit yesterday morning.
Whereas the folder has since been taken down, the recordsdata contained inside had been shortly archived, and the speculative subreddit is presently awash with screenshots and video from what seems to be a improvement construct of the sport. The spotlight of the dump are 9 new characters on the roster—and whereas most are utilizing placeholder coaching dummy fashions, no less than one (dubbed “Newcastle”) seems near completion, elevating hypothesis that he’ll be the following to reach.
The leak additionally consists of particulars of a brand new battle royale map, “Divided Moon”, presently utilizing blockout textures and property. A number of new enviornment maps have additionally been leaked, together with map adjustments for Storm Level and King’s Canyon. The leak additionally consists of new coaching floor challenges and choices, unreleased heirlooms for 2 current Legends, and a wealth of Legendary character skins in various states of completion, amongst extra miscellaneous adjustments.
This is not the primary time Apex content material has been slipped prematurely. A season 6 leak revealed a number of new characters forward of schedule—and whereas Fuse, Ash, Horizon and Valk would find yourself popping out, it is price noting that others have both didn’t materialise (Blisk) or had been massively reworked forward of launch (Mad Maggie). It’s totally possible that most of the 9 Legends leaked this week will arrive in dramatically completely different kind, in the event that they even arrive in any respect.
Nonetheless, contemplating the breadth of recent characters and maps, the neighborhood is looking this the largest leak in Apex Legends’ historical past, supposedly spoiling two complete years of releases. However the leak has additionally stirred up drama within the ApexUncovered scene, because the leaker whose title is watermarked on most of the pictures claims he’s been framed by one other prolific leaker.
I’ve reached out to a Respawn consultant for remark.
