The best moments in Apex Legends lore in 2020

Apex Legends has had a busy 2020 down to the very end. During the last week of the year, Respawn released an episode of Stories from the Outlands and revealed that Loba didn’t destroy Revenant’s source code—two critical pieces of information for the road ahead.

The past year was a rich one for lore in Apex, not just for the narratives themselves but also in the media used to tell the stories. This year saw the adoption of season quests, from the text-based format of The Broken Ghost to full-fledged comics during seasons six and seven. The latest development in Loba and Revenant’s storyline also flirted with a nearly audio-only model that drafted voice actors Fryda Wolff and Darin DePaul to advance the storyline between the simulacrum and the thief.

With so much happening in one year, we’ve selected our favorite moments in Apex lore in 2020, in no particular order. From Pathfinder’s unwavering kindness to Revenant’s unbridled aggression, here are some of the best moments that took place this year.

The latest episode of Stories from the Outlands is proof that 2020 keeps on giving for Apex fans—even in the last week of the year. The Fight Night short shed some light on one of the battle royale’s oldest mysteries: the identity of Pathfinder’s creator.

The cinematic doesn’t just give out all the answers and makes sure to save some for the upcoming developments (including a lore book that will detail Pathfinder’s quest to find his creator), but gives fans a direction to look in—and it may be toward Olympus.

The noir-inspired animated short shows that Pathfinder’s creator (or one of his creators) is Dr. Amelie P., who designed him in 2658—75 years before the events of Apex. He has a “great purpose” critical to the fate of the Outlands, according to her. Although Pathfinder lost the actual video files of Dr. Amelie’s message, the recording drove him to find his creator—certainly a story hook that Respawn intends to explore in the coming year.

Loba finds the facility in Kings Canyon (season five)

Apex‘s Assimilation launch trailer formally introduced Revenant and showed the murder of Marcos and Alanza Andrade by the killer simulacrum. The season five launch trailer, on the other hand, showed us Loba Andrade’s search for revenge against Revenant—and how she almost got what she wanted.

Loba’s quest to destroy the simulacrum led her to an underground facility below Kings Canyon where she found Revenant’s only weakness: his source code. She shot at the glass that protected Revenant’s former head and triggered the facility’s self-destruct protocol—and took down a chunk of Kings Canyon with it.

Loba’s arrival had significant repercussions for the greater narrative in Apex. In addition to generating an unparalleled rivalry…
