Apex Legends Night Mode Hinted at in Data Mine

Apex Legends Night Mode Hinted at in Data Mine

Night time map and NPCs might be coming soon to Apex Legends.

If a new data mine for Apex Legends is to be believed, Respawn's game could be getting a new Night mode, which plays out exactly like it sounds. That's going to be lethal for Bloodhound mains.

Apex Legends - News and Leaks Twitter account has cataloged a new wave of data mines that took place over the past weekend. Night mode was one of the more noticeable leaks, which is set to plunge the King's Canyon map into complete darkness.

Elsewhere in the leaks, Spider, Goliath, and Prowler are all mentioned under the 'NPC' notes. There's code in the leaks for NPC directions, behaviour and more, but what's unclear is whether the NPC will be featured in the King's Canyon map, or restricted to a training mode only.

Of course, all this information is unconfirmed by Respawn at the time of writing. But one thing that has been confirmed for the future of Apex Legends is a Battle Pass, with complete seasonal events running over the course of 2019.

There's a ton to get to grip with in the early goings of Apex Legends. You can check out our main Apex Legends tips page, or there's our Apex Legends weapons page, which details every single gun in the game.
