Last week, Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment introduced the world to Forge, the newest Legend to enter the Apex Games. But within the game’s newest trailer, which Respawn launched on Monday morning, Forge was murdered throughout a “live” interview. The wrongdoer? The mysterious — and frequently leaked — robotic, most likely, generally known as Revenant.
The trailer begins out like a normal introduction. The championship-winning MMA fighter Forge introduces himself and talks a giant game about how effectively he’ll do in Apex Legends’ fictional fight sport, the Apex Games. Suddenly, the lights flicker and a robotic determine seems behind Forge. The new robotic morphs its hand right into a blade and stabs Forge, ending the champion’s run, and doubtless his probability at becoming a member of the Apex Games.
This reveal is concurrently surprising, and a bit of anticipated. On the one hand, when Respawn introduced Forge can be the following character added to Apex Legends, there wasn’t a lot cause to doubt the developer, and no cause to suppose he’d be murdered in a trailer. What isn’t stunning, nonetheless, is the murderer in query.
While we haven’t been formally launched to this new robotic, frequent leaks, which began showing in October, have led a lot of the neighborhood to imagine that that is Revenant. The description of the trailer on the Apex Legends web site additionally says that it introduces us to a mysterious new champion, so this robotic getting into the game looks as if a fairly secure guess.
While Respawn hasn’t formally confirmed that Revenant can be taking Forge’s spot within the Apex Games, it’s value noting that Forge’s image is now grayed out on the Apex Legends’ season 4 website. His title has additionally been modified to “RIP Jimmie ‘Forge’ McCormick,” with an outline that reads “Never defeated (except that one time.)” Which isn’t a great signal.
For extra info on Apex’s latest Legend, we’ll have to attend for official phrase from Respawn Entertainment. Thankfully, information is bound to return quickly as a result of Apex Legends season Four begins on Feb. 4.
