Season 1 – Wild Frontier launched last week, bringing a new character to the battle royale shooter in the form of the thrill-seeking Octane. The speedster has been an instant hit with fans, but now it looks like he won’t be the only new legend to hop into Kings Canyon this season.
The post on PlayStation website states: “Two new characters will launch over the course of the season but in the meantime, look out for a new weapon set to launch as the season progresses. Best of all, each new Legend and weapon will launch with a full set of cosmetics to unlock.”
Intriguingly, this post also mentions a new weapon coming to the game, seemingly in between the launch of Octane and this previously unannounced character. The only weapon added since launch has been the Havoc rifle, so it looks like we’ll all be searching for this new firearm in the coming weeks. We’ve got our fingers crossed for a new shotgun…
Apex Legends has been a huge phenomenon since launching in February, with over 50 million players downloading the frantic battle royale shooter.
