For months data miners and fans of Apex Legends were looking for clues for the upcoming season. Updated game files lead many to believe that either Revenant or Loba were set to make their debut. However, all of that was put aside in the latest Apex Legends dev stream. In the latest announcement video, we now know Season 4 of Apex Legends will be called ‘Assimilation‘.

Respawn has announced with the upcoming season we are getting a new legend and weapon. The newest legend is Forge who was previously data mined out of nowhere. He is a 5x fighting federation champion sponsored by Hammond Robotics. The latest weapon is the Sentinel which is a bolt action sniper.
