Get ready to jump.
A small gray and green jumping pillow has appeared in Apex Legends & Kings 39. Based on a simple answer from a Respawn developer, it seems like this is a tease for the upcoming new legend.
Reddit users jetblacklab discovered the mysterious object just outside Market. As you walk on the platform, the player is thrown into the air. You can see this item in action in the video below:
The colors of the jump plate match those of the supposed next Apex Legends character, Octane. An image of the character was found earlier this week in EA Origins servers. Although Respawn warned the players to be cautious about the truth behind data-mediated information, they did not directly discredit the possibility that the next legend could be octane. Instead, a Respawn developer responded to Jetblacklab's thread with a smirking emoji that made us believe that this new object could really be Octan's ultimate ability or at least related to Octane in some way.
Respawn said more information about the new Apex Legends character and Season 1 Battle Pass comes "soon". For more on Apex Legends, be sure to check out the interactive Kings Canyon map and the Apex Legends community weapons lists.
