New Apex Legends Crypto Teaser Hints At Off-World Location

- Advertisement -

Respawn has posted a tweet of a strange message between Apex Legends‘ new character, Crypto, and his mom ahead of the battle royale game’s Season 3 launch. It’s seemingly a letter from the hacker thanking his mother for her advice in regards to asking out a cute girl. Wait a bit though and it’s revealed the message has been carefully encrypted and is actually about Crypto’s plans.

“As I’m sure you’ve heard I took your advice and I went to the Games,” the real message reads. “It’s the only way I can get close to the people who framed me. All I had to do was distract the Syndicate long enough to get ‘Crypto’s’ credentials into the system. You were right about the qualifying matches. I looked into it and there’s no way I could have gotten in. So I went with Plan B: I took down the Repulsor tower. I had no idea it would be so insane. I’m hoping the damage was enough to close King’s Canyon so I can hitch a ride on the dropship off Solace, and find the evidence I need somewhere in New Dawn.”

In the letter, Crypto is referencing the events that transpired in the cinematic trailer for Apex Legends Season 2, which saw the flyers and leviathans invade King’s Canyon after the destruction of the repulsor tower. Unfortunately for Crypto, we know his actions didn’t stop the Apex Games. The Syndicate continued the blood sport, utilizing a reworked battlefield. This might explain the subsequent hacking attempts during the final weeks of Season 2, though, as well as Crypto’s attempts to access the Singh Labs to find a space elevator. He needs a new way off-world since his previous plan failed.

“I just hope this isn’t like last time, and I don’t get blown up before I go off-planet. (Sorry. Rejection leads to gallows humor.),” the message continues. “Thank you for always being the mom I needed. I’ll be in touch. Try not to worry too much. What’s that you always say? It’s hard to be scared when you’re prepared.”

Respawn could just be releasing this message as a teaser to create more hype for Crypto, who’s believed to be coming to Apex Legends alongside the launch of Season 3 on October 1. However, it does continue to support the speculation that Apex Legends might be getting a brand-new map at some point. New Dawn could be a reference to Dawn–a multiplayer map in Titanfall Online, a canceled free-to-play game. Dawn was set in a massive desert environment that was filled with downed warships and makeshift buildings following the devastating space battle between the IMC and Frontier Militia in the planet’s upper atmosphere. Sounds like an ideal location for a new battle royale map. We’ll have to wait and see though.
