A Reddit post, on the official subreddit of Apex Legends, leaked details about the upcoming nine legends and three maps. This leak includes an overall 27 months of game development.
Nine new legends, a new battle royale map, two new arena maps, heirlooms, bundles, and emotes, which will be released over a span of 27 months, have been leaked. Like all the other Legends, all the upcoming leaked agents seem promising with unique sets of abilities.
Apex Legends to release nine Legends in upcoming 27 months
Apex Legends has set nine Legends to release in the upcoming 27 months, one agent in three months. All of the nine agents are already under development. Following is the list of all the nine agents.
The first agent on the list is Newcastle, a new defender, dubbed as ‘Mobile Defender.’
Tactical Ability: ‘Mobile Shield,’ deploys a drone that creates a movable shield in the direction Newcastle is facing.
Passive Ability: ‘Retrieve the Wounded,’ allows him to drag downed teammates and protects them with a revive shield while they are being resurrected.
Ultimate Ability: ‘Castlewall,’ makes him jump and slam onto the ground, creating a huge strong shield.
We presume Newcastle will come to the game in Season 13.
- Vantage (previously known as Hawk):
Vantage is a ‘Survivalist Sniper.’
Tactical Ability: ‘Echo Launch,’ quite similar to Crypto’s drone. Players can use it by pressing ‘Q’ to control it and launch Vantage towards a certain spot at any time.
Passive Ability: ‘Sniper Kit,’ provides her with tactical information in ADS or any long-range scope. This ability reveals Legend’s name, shield stats, squad size, and distance from Vantage.
Ultimate Ability: ‘Mark To Kill,’ equips a modified rifle with a scanner and a damage increase for her entire team. On successful hits, the damage is doubled if Vantage tags them with it.
We presume Vantage will come to the game in Season 14.
