Apex Legends has officially hit 100 million players, developer Respawn announced Wednesday. Respawn also appears to be teasing a new character, and potentially some sort of new location for players to compete in.

The character in question appears at the 43-second mark, flying over the sky as Mirage exclaims “somebody got the party started.” The figure, shrouded in darkness, appears to be flying upward, or at least in a gentle arc. Aside from Horizon, who can use a jetpack while falling, no other character in Apex Legends really has that kind of maneuverability.
We also see what looks like a new or modified location in Kings Canyon, although it only appears for literally half a second after the new character appears in the sky. Here’s a quick screenshot.
Unfortunately, there’s not much more to go on, but we do know that Apex Legends season 9 will feature Titanfall, Respawn’s original shooter franchise, in some capacity. Don’t forget that you can play Apex Legends on the Switch now, so read our review to see if it holds up.
