Apex Legends launched in 2019 with a dozen playable characters, and with the a number of extra it’s added within the time since then, that quantity presently stands at 20. Soon, that roster will see one other addition when a new Legend arrives within the type of Newcastle with the upcoming Season 13: Saviors. But there would possibly come a time when developer Respawn Entertainment decides to sluggish the tempo at which that roster grows.
Speaking not too long ago with Dextero, senior character designer Devan McGuire mentioned that as time goes on and the developer continues to develop Apex Legends’ roster, it will get tougher and tougher to return up Legends which can be “distinctive, with out being overpowered, or too area of interest.” According to McGuire, the sport would possibly ultimately attain a “breaking level” the place including a new character with each new season will merely not be possible, particularly with the sport’s steadiness and the standard of recent additions saved in thoughts.
“Whether or not that sample continues is an ongoing dialogue, and it may not be modified, however we don’t need to saturate the pool,” he mentioned.
For now, it doesn’t appear like we’re fairly at that time but. The twenty first Legend, Newcastle, can be added to the sport when Season 13: Saviors goes stay on May 10.
Apex Legends is accessible on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
