Apex Legends' New Trailer Has a Nod to the Game's Earliest Easter Egg

Apex Legends' New Trailer Has a Nod to the Game's Earliest Easter Egg

Welcome back, Nessy.

When Apex Legends first launched in February of 2019, the original King's Canyon map featured several small dinosaur plushes for players to find and activate. In the newly-releasing trailer for new Apex Games participant Loba last night, this dinosaur made a small return.

Check out the screenshot from the Loba introduction trailer below, where you can see Nessy clearly on the desk. Nessy is the name of the small dinosaurs that were hidden all around the King's Canyon map when Apex Legends first launched in early 2019.

These small dinosaurs all rolled together into one big treasure hunt. You'd have to go around the map with your team, finding and activating the Nessy plushes in a certain order, for the final, gigantic Nessy to appear out of nowhere and pay a visit to the King's Canyon map. There wasn't really much to this easter egg hunt outside of seeing a giant dinosaur just off the edge of the map, but it was still a neat little treasure hunt nonetheless.

You can watch the flashy introductory trailer for Loba in full just above, and as usual it features some top notch animation from Respawn Entertainment. Loba will be introduced to Apex Legends alongside Season 5 on May 12, and it looks like she'll be out for revenge on Revenant, who you might remember murdered her entire family in his introductory cinematic back when the current season launched earlier this year.
