Get an early sneak peek at Apex Legends’ next character

Respawn Entertainment has accidentally revealed the next character that’ll be joining the roster in Apex Legends.

The self-inflicted leak comes ahead of the newest episode of Stories from the Outlands, a series of animated shorts before each season that introduces the next Legend, which will be released at 4pm today.

Players who logged into the Apex Legends client on 23rd July may have spotted the preview image uploaded by Respawn. It’s since been removed from the client, but not before it could be immortalised on the internet.

Reddit user TheKzX uploaded a screenshot of the preview for Stories from the Outlands: Survive, which also had a greyed out button to watch the video. The caption names the new season as Apex Legends: Hunted, beginning on 9th August.

No one that spotted the preview was able to watch Survive but the new Legend is shown close-up, giving players more than enough information to start piecing things together.

The new character shown has dark hair and wears a headset, with dark smudges along their cheekbones. They look distinctly like Vantage, a character that was a part of the huge Apex Legends leak back in March.

Later in the day, the Apex Legends Twitter account posted a new video captioned “Distress transmission incoming…” to tease the announcement of a new character, with Survive being announced the next day.

Players are now anticipating Vantage to be announced as the next playable Legend later today, revealed to be a sniper in the March leak.
