Apex Legends – a free-to-play battle royal shooter created by Response Entertainment – is currently in its 12th season, dubbed “Defense”, with new hero Mad Maggie. But a huge leak on Reddit has complained that undeclared and unpublished content has been found for future seasons until the 21st season. Apex Legends includes leaked gameplay videos and many text files pointing to new heroes, maps, weapons, cosmetics and more. All of the initially leaked files have since been removed, but copies continue to be shared in the subreddit where they were first posted.
The alleged Apex Legends leak was shared by an anonymous Reddit user – u / 5849373-throwway – on the Apex Uncovered subreddit, which was initially spotted by Charlentel. It included 15 videos from the leaked Apex Legends gameplay that appeared to be the game’s internal developer build. It should be noted that the final build may deviate significantly from the leaked content.
The highlight of the alleged leak was a 10-minute video showing the gameplay of nine undeclared heroes. Mentioned footage included Conduit, Scriar, Newcastle, Uplink, Vantage, Catalyst, Phantom, Jester and Caliber. Although all featured heroes seemed far from a finished product, they still had a complete set of abilities. The most flash-out character on this list is Newcastle, who is expected to be the next hero to be released with the 13th season of Apex Legends.
In addition to the heroes, the videos also feature new weapons, including the Nemesis B-AR and the Fanatic Energy pistol. There is also talk of a new map called the ‘split moon’, which is said to be far from a finished product. The map may have a monorail system similar to the existing Apex Legends map World’s Edge. In addition, the leaked videos feature new emotions and potential upcoming character Newcastle for existing protagonist Ash.
Respon has not yet commented on the veracity of the alleged leak but was quick to point out the videos. It may be a while before we hear from the developers that the current 12th season of Apex Legends is two months away.
