It appears the first of three phases of teaser dates has wasted no time prepping players for a destructive climax that's soon to take place in World's Edge for Apex Legends Season 10.
A pair of in-game teasers have emerged, corroborating leaks from last week that first gave the community signs that World's Edge is now back in the destructive crosshairs of Respawn Entertainment for the battle royale's upcoming season.
On July 6, Apex Legends dataminer KralRindo tweeted a thread full of new World's Edge Season 10 content, including teaser logs, teaser dates and even new sounds of haunting tremors and emergency interface warnings of what appears to be even more major tectonic activity going down in Talos.
The Twitter thread also mentioned that three phases of teaser dates were set to officially reveal this information in the coming weeks:
- Phase 1: "2021-07-15 10:00:00 -08:00"
- Phase 2: "2021-07-18 10:00:00 -08:00"
- Phase 3: "2021-07-20 10:00:00 -08:00"
With July 15 just now in the rear view, it seems the leaks were on the money.
Players have begun to run into the leaked memos from a character named Bilal at the Countdown POI in-game, confirming that the situation in World's Edge is starting to look pretty dire.
Whole world's shaking. Finally got Hammond to run tests. Why is no one else freaking out?- Bilal, Apex Legends (2021)
Within the past 24 hours, the ApexLegends subreddit has also been filled with new threads from players reporting that the terrain of World's Edge has begun shaking pretty violently.
Before the character selection screen, players have been randomly greeted by a brief clip showing a tunnel that leads to the Vault in the Train Yard quaking and rumbling — using the aforementioned sound effects leaked by KralRindo on June 30.
There are also some other hints that strongly hint more chaos is set to unfold in the beloved map beset by lava and volcanic ash.
One is a Bloodhound voiceline triggered in-game when players walk through the tunnels near the Harvester POI.
“The ground shifts below our feet," Bloodhound says. "I fear we are not prepared for change."
On June 16, Respawn design director Jason McCord had this to say when a meteor fell into a volcano in Indonesia.
If KralRindo's leaks continue to prove true, players can expect the next phase of teasers to come out this Sunday, July 18.
