One credible Apex Legends leaker has revealed that a level cap increase may be coming to the game "in the near future" alongside another cosmetic feature.
SomeoneWhoLeaks (@SomeoneWhoLeaks), a credible "publisher of unreleased content" for Apex Legends, has revealed that the developers are planning on adding another 200 levels to the game, bringing the maximum level cap up from 501 to 700. Additionally, they explained, certain legends will be getting "themed frames," and posted images of the ones allegedly for Octane and Lifeline.
"Levels 501-700 being added in the near future. Respective legends themed frames are Octane & Lifeline," they wrote in a tweet published to their profile on Tuesday, June 21.
Apex Legends Leaker Reveals New Level Cap Increase to 700
While this is something players have been asking for, the news wasn't taken as enthusiastically as Respawn might have hoped — as many have already progressed beyond this, according to the game's stats.
Several expressed confusion over whether their progress beyond the cap will simply be erased to grind 200 more levels. Others seemed upset that it was only 200, and that the leveling system could be much improved in other ways.
"'700,'" wrote Twitter user @stylesgamingacc, "Why can't they make it 1000 and add a prestige system."
"The sad thing is they aren’t adding more than 200 bc that’d mean more free packs for people and they would lose revenue from people buying packs/ BP," wrote Iris (@QueenofEclipses), echoing a common complaint about the company.
DBLTAP cannot confirm a date for when this cap will go into effect.
