Apex Legends may gain killcams in the near future, according to data mined from the game's files Monday.

Apex Legends saves player positions and camera angles during matches, according to an image of its files posted to the Apex Legends subreddit by Reddit user u/nev3rafail. The file also refers to 'Player 1' and 'Player 2,' making killcams more likely than a full replay system.

Apex Legends publisher Electronic Arts did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Apex Legends' primary competitors in the battle royale space, PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS and Fortnite, both sport robust replay systems. Players can watch entire matches from start to finish, from any perspective. Apex Legends offers no similar feature.

Apex Legends kicked off its Grand Soirée in-game event Tuesday, bringing several new cosmetics and game modes, the latter of which will rotate over the course of the event. Grand Soirée will likely be Apex Legends' last event before Season 4 begins Feb. 4.
