The 8 current characters (Respawn / EA.com)

Earlier this week, we reported that Respawn Entertainment’s wildly popular battle royale title Apex Legends had quietly made a reference to blockchain technology via a skin for one of the characters.

Now, a recent report by Forbes suggests 11 new characters could be joining the 8 that are currently available, including one named “Crypto.” This is based on leaked data grabs — since removed from Imgur — that also reveal new character “Octane” boasts a stimpack-based ability and “Wattson” has some form of electric trap.

Here’s the full list of leaked characters:

  • Nomad
  • Octane
  • Prophet
  • Husaria
  • Jericho
  • Rampart
  • Blackout
  • Rosie
  • Skunner
  • Wattson
  • Crypto

While the abilities for Crypto have not been released, as Forbes points out, the names in Apex Legends usually indicate the character’s abilities, so the character will likely have some has some type of tech-based ability or hacking skill. Who knows, maybe Crypto will huck random exploding shitcoins at the enemy.

There is currently no indication as to when the new characters will be released. Based on the introduction of the Havoc as a standalone gun addition, it’s certainly possible Respawn plans to slowly add new characters over time, rather than dumping 11 new characters into the game at once.
