Season 3’s character makes a quick cameo.
Apex Legends continues on with its dinosaur-filled second season. It’s managed to give the game a much needed shot in the arm, revitalizing it to some degree (even if it’s not quite where it was when it launched). But like all live service games, it’s always about that next step, and it seems Respawn has decided to tease the game’s next Legend.
Several users on Reddit have reported seeing the new character (who people are dubbing Crypto based on datamined descriptions) in the east part of the Labs. He’s behind some glass doing some computer hacking. If you break into the room, he scurries off. It’s worth noting that Crypto has not been officially revealed to be the character’s name as of now.
The character was officially revealed at a GameStop conference last month. There’s no word on when he’ll be available, but the current season ends October 1st with a Halloween event scheduled for the month, so odds are it should be soon. Apex Legends is available to download now with a physical release slated for October 18th.
