Rumor has it, Apex Legends may soon find its way on Steam soon!
This seems like good news to all BR enthusiasts who prefer Valve’s leading digital distribution service.
A few recent leaks uncovered by data miners in Season 5 could hint that the game is finally making its way towards a Steam debut.
After a year of being exclusive to Origin’s game launcher, the popular BR Game could potentially expand its reach to new audiences.
Thanks, data miners
Dataminers continue to look through latest update files for any leaks or hints towards the game’s future.
The most recent discovery,and perhaps a significant one, involved two separate miners finding a weapon charm of GLaDOS from Valve’s Portal series.
The addition of a Valve IP in an Electronic Arts game can suggest that the BR title may soon be entering Steam, the leading digital storefront.
Biast12 and Shrugtal posted their findings on Twitter, which shortly garnered the interest of players and Apex Legends enthusiasts.
“So this got added in the files, name: “v_charm_valve_potato” this could hint to something with valve or maybe steam”
“There’s also this Portal potato charm.”
The particular file is known as “v_charm_valve_potato,” which appears to be a callback to the middle of the Portal 2 campaign when GLaDOS (an AI companion) is ridiculously transformed into a potato battery.
This is a stark contrast to her powerful presence in the early series. Now, she has become a small attachment on your gun where she complains about her unfortunate situation during your journey.
The said leaked Apex weapon charm is a close-to-perfect replica of her famed potato design.
The leaked files may likely conclude Apex Legends’ Steam debut soon.
Around October of last year, EA already confirmed that the majority of its library would be sold on Steam at some point.
However, Origin will still be needed as a secondary launcher to run these games.
Apex Legends was one of the name-dropped titles destined to head over Valve’s dominating marketplace.
“The partnership kicks off with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order launching on November 15—and available for pre-order today. In the coming months, players on Steam will also be able to play other major titles like The Sims 4 and Unravel Two. Multiplayer games—like Apex Legends, FIFA 20, and Battlefield V—will become available next year, and players on both Origin and Steam will have the ability to play together,”
With the initially confirmed Steam release of Apex Legends, the GLaDOS charm leak makes a lot of sense to excited players.
Fans speculate the cosmetic might turn out to be an appropriate login reward when the title officially launches on Steam for the next few months.
However, nothing is confirmed yet— in terms of reward and a release date for the Apex Legends Steam version.
The popular BR title Apex Legends is available to play on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
