Apex Legends reveals its next Legend by murdering another Legend

Respawn Entertainment bamboozled us. 

Earlier on, the Apex Legends developer revealed the newest Legend to join the Apex Games: Forge. Fans assumed that this would be the newest playable character to join the game - but that was before Forge was brutally murdered in a new trailer. 

The MMA fighter was in the midst of getting interviewed during a talk show, before getting stabbed in the back by a new robotic-looking character - Revenant. Just like that, Forge’s big shot at being an Apex Legend is over before it began. However, the question remains: who is Revenant, and why did they kill Forge?

This isn’t actually Revenant’s first appearance in Apex Legends. They appeared in the game’s Halloween-themed event - Fight or Fright. Players would respawn into Kings Canyon as zombies after they were killed, while Revenant played host to the whole affair. It’s basically a sure thing at this point that Revenant will be the next playable character to hit Apex Legends when Season 4: Assimilation debuts.

For those still hoping to play as Forge, I have some bad news for you. On Apex Legends Season 4’s website, Forge’s picture is now a memorial instead of an exciting character tease. Under, “RIP Jimmie ‘Forge’ McCormick,” it says, “Never defeated (except that one time).” Forge is long gone, folks. It’s Revenant’s time to shine. 

A new season for Apex Legends begins on February 4, and that means lots of new content is coming to the game; a new Legend, battle pass, weapon, cosmetics and big map changes, among others. Respawn hasn’t given us a full reveal on all of the game’s upcoming changes yet - but check back for more news when it comes.
