A data mine has revealed that there will be 10 new characters to add to Apex Legends’ roster of Legends — including the previously leaked Octane and Wattson.
Data miners FrozenFroh and Shrugtal seem to have struck gold while data mining the new smash-hit battle royale game, as they uncovered icons, concept art, and names for eight new characters. FrozenFroh later posted the findings on the Apex Legends subreddit and created a mock-up of the game’s character selection screen featuring the new legends.

While the abilities of the new characters — and whether they will end up actually appearing in Apex Legends — are still unclear, the reveal is not something that can be easily dismissed. The data miners pointed out that one of the uncovered characters, Talchum, has been featured in concept art of the game.
anyone remember talchum from the concept art? he has a ingame icon too, along with two other people pic.twitter.com/BlAudSdXam— Shrugtal (@shrugtal) March 11, 2019
We may see one of the characters from the reveal, Octane, go live very soon. Octane has long been rumored to arrive with Apex Legends’ first battle pass — which could be released as soon as today, March 12.
