Years of potential Apex Legends content including nine new heroes has seemingly been leaked online.
As reported by Charlie INTEL, an anonymous Reddit user published a now-deleted file of Apex Legends content that included gameplay footage detailing a number of previously unseen heroes.
As publisher EA has yet to reveal or confirm any of the supposed leaks, all of the new characters and abilities must be taken with a pinch of salt, but Apex Legends does have an infamous leaking issue with dataminers often revealing new content ahead of official sources.
The 15 leaked videos showed off new maps for arena mode, weapons (including something called the Nemesis B-AR and the Fanatic energy pistol), and cosmetics, alongside actual gameplay of the new Legends in action. Those new playable characters have names and are listed as Caliber, Catalyst, Conduit, Jester, Newcastle, Phantom, Scryer, Uplink, and Vantage.
The new Legends can be seen in the roster screenshot (above) and all seem to have a full set of abilities. Newcastle was featured extensively in one video, who’s described as a mobile defender that can create cover and revive teammates.
The footage even outlines his abilities: Retrieve the Wounded, which lets the player drag downed allies while you revive and protect them with a shield, Mobile Shield, a throwable drone that creates a moving energy shield, and his ultimate ability Castle Wall, where Newcastle leaps in the air, slamming down to create a fortified stronghold.
IGN has reached out to EA for comment on the supposed leaks but has not yet responded.
In our 9/10 review, IGN said: “Apex Legends’ mix of exciting characters, excellent gunplay, and unmatched FPS movement keep it a consistently fresh thrill.”
