'Apex Legends' Night Mode Leaked, Possibly Coming for Season 1

Apex Legends fans continue to leak more details about the popular battle royale game. Data strings uncovered by Twitter's Austin Schriver and RealApexLeaks suggest a full-fledged Night Mode may be in development over at Respawn.

The evidence, shown below, relates to recently uncovered scripts labeled as "SetTimeshiftTimeOfDay_Night." There are also secondary scripts for SetTimeshiftTimeOfDay_Day" as well. The main implication here is, of course, that Respawn is presumably working on a day-night cycle for King's Canyon. The word "shift" implies that the status could change via a real-world clock or in-game timer.

LEAK: Also there's a Night Mode is development. That's one of the most requested features after a reddditor showed how the map would like in the Night.

Talk of a possible Night Mode for King's Canyon has been a fan-focused discussion since the game launched last month. In fact, reddit user saxonn posted a few concept images of a nighttime King's Canyon just a few weeks ago. While it was largely comprised of official screenshots run through a darkened filter, the pictures offer a solid preview of what the feature's official implementation might look like. Other battle royale titles like Fortnite and PUBG have had day-night cycles for quite some time. It's only natural that Apex would join the party eventually.

This most recent leak is just the latest in what seems like a never-ending stream of possible feature reveals. Over the past few days alone, dataminers have also uncovered evidence of a new Legend called Octane, upcoming weapons and even a Hoverboard vehicle. It's unclear if all these features will work their way into a final release, but the addition of a Night Mode seems like a guarantee. With the imminent arrival of the game's Season 1 Battle Pass, we expect many big changes are coming soon.

Apex Legends is available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
