Is it a Character or NPC?
A new Apex Legends character has potentially leaked online.
Twitter user @shrugtal found the image on EA’s servers, where the main background of it is still live as of time of writing.
Initially, the image apparently included text that included details of the character – named Octane – and reported that it was taken down after 10 minutes. However, we cannot confirm this ourselves at the current time.
The URL for the image also mentions the Season 1 Battle Pass for Apex Legends, which has a rumored launch date of March 12.
One month after the release of Apex Legends, the free-to-play battle royale hit 50 million players worldwide, which is not surprising considering it had 25 million players after only one week.
So far, Apex Legends has one quarter of the players that Fortnite had after an entire year following its release.
