World’s Edge has only just been graced by the moody presence of new legend Revenant, but a new hero could be inbound fairly soon, as players have spotted a rather obvious hint running about the map.
Shared by the appropriately-named Sheepless Wolf on Reddit, a shadowy canine has been spotted running through the new Harvester area. A slow-mo shot reveals this probably isn’t a rogue Wraith – although the hitbox is probably just as small.
Backing up the mystery sighting, a number of players have also reported hearing distant howling noises in the area. Perhaps they’re not just crying wolf.
So, why is everyone connecting the wolf sightings to a new legend? If you cast your mind back to the season 4 trailer, you may remember a guy in a suit – described as a “conman and thief for hire” – getting absolutely eviscerated by the robot legend as part of a contract killing. Before he dies, however, he gives a wolf statue to his daughter, and we later see her looking up from his corpse with vengeance in her eyes.
A datamine from six months ago revealed the name of an upcoming legend called Loba, which in Portugese translates to “female wolf”. She’s supposed to be a thief-themed legend, and given all these hints, it’s a fair bet she’ll be the second legend added in season 4 – perhaps to seek revenge on Revenant for killing her father. Unless Respawn just kills her off like it did with Forge, anyway.
If you want to run around the Apex map to discover these noises yourself, you’ll soon be able to do so in pairs – as the Valentine’s day duos event is starting at some point later today. Spotting it in person would certainly throw me for a lupus.
