Forge is Dead, But Revenant Lives
Players who were excited to get their hands on Apex Legends new Legend will be shocked to hear that Forge is dead. A trailer released on Monday depicted Forge being interviewed about joining the Apex games. During the interview, a red ninja-robot appears behind the character and stabs him in the back.
The Apex Legends Season 4 webpage has been updated with a faded out picture of Forge and an epitaph below his portrait.
“RIP Jimmie “Forge” McCormick. Never defeated (except for that one time).”
The twist of Monday’s trailer did not come as a surprise to everyone though. Apex Legends’ data miner, Shrugtal, found files referring to a character named Revenant back in October 2019. There have been several other leaks that have pointed to the existence of Revenant as well. If these images and files are to be believed, Revenant is indeed the red robo-murderer shown in the trailer.
Beyond the trailer, there is no official word from Respawn on what this trailer means for the upcoming fourth season of Apex Legends. Season 4 is set to begin on Feb, 4, so players won’t have to wait long to find out what’s in store.
