New Apex Legends Animated Trailer Ends With a Surprise

Apex Legends Animated Trailer Revenant

A new animated trailer for Apex Legends’ fourth season dropped today and it revolved around introducing the newest upcoming legend, Forge. Or is it? You’ll see what we mean shortly. Previously revealed during the Season 4 announcement live stream, Forge is described as the complete opposite of Octane.

Unfortunately, they would not disclose any further information about these two characters. But the future of Forge isn’t looking so hot, especially since he has a huge hole in his chest.
