The latest Apex Legends update brought Season 3: Meltdown and the arrival of the long-teased and much-leaked new hero Crypto. Now that Season 3 is well underway, we're looking ahead to the end of the year and the eventual Season 4 of Apex Legends. As with other seasons, the original Apex Legends roadmap plans for another new Legend in the fourth season. Thanks to the backlog of leaks, we're pretty sure that this new legend will be named Revenant. 

Below you'll find all the scraps of info that have been leaked and teased on Revenant, including their first in-game appearance as the villain of the Halloween-themed Fight or Fright event that launched on October 15th.

Referred to back in the earliest Apex Legends leaks as "Blackout," Revenant's concept art seems to have been in the game's files since launch. In August, a leaked set of skills for Revenant came out with the Iron Crown event. We've got those skills listed below for you to check out. On August 6th, a leaked image of a character testing document shows Revenant under a section titled "production" suggesting that they are in the final stages of development unlike the characters listed in "Design Alpha."

Level designer's tweet shows Revenant

On October 8th, level designer Kevin Bragg posted screenshots of Octane's Gauntlet. The first image in the tweet shows a banner with a character that appears similar to the originally leaked Revenant concept art. It also matches the image of Revenant from the leaked character sheet two days prior.

Here's Revenant in the Fight or Fright trailer
