A mysterious fleet of abandoned ships...a city under siege by nature itself...the people they love, so only hours left to live... Follow the Legends as they hunt for the cure every Tuesday, here in Quests...and the stories of their loved ones fighting for survival a few days later, by following @PlayApex on Twitter!
Players can find Treasure Packs in-game, once per day (players can also purchase all the available Treasure Packs for 25).
Treasure Pack rewards vary with the only constant being that every four packs give out an EpicCharm. 2 are given out usually after every other pack while 15 or an Apex Pack are usually four packs apart.
All of the rewards need a total of 60 Treasure Packs to unlock.
After all the Treasure Packs are collected, the player gets two rewards: an Waves of ChangeR-99 SMG Skin and an Apex Pack.
Last night, with no warning, Olympus’ computerized terraformation systems initialized the shift of multiple sectors of the floating city to allow a fleet of fifteen ships to dock, starting with the Icarus. Within minutes, impossibly large Medusa Vines broke through the ships' hulls and overtook the city... destroying power grids, water mains, and even buildings by sunrise.
It shouldn’t matter. The city’s been uninhabited for years and has only been used as an arena for the Apex Games… until this week.
The Syndicate has opened Olympus to the public for a dedication ceremony to honor the Legend, Pathfinder, for his heroism upon learning he saved the Outlands. Thousands of innocent people have come from all over to attend this celebration of life... just in time for death to come calling.
My name is Angela Fazia… and today, I make history....
Fazia: "Angela Fazia, Investigative Journalist"
Rasheed: "Grace Rasheed. Director of Security, Ms. Fazia. The Icarus is this way."
Fazia: "These aren't your average Medusa Vines."
Rasheed: "Fire, bullets, even liquid nitrogen - don't do a damn thing. They're indestructible and they just keep growing."
Rasheed: "Follow me..."
Fazia: "Who's the owner?"
Rasheed: "Don't know. Serial numbers were scratched off."
Rasheed: "Does my badge say Lead Mortician?"
Rasheed: "I'm out. If the floor starts to give, I'd run."
Fazia: "You're leaving me?!"
Fazia: "What's more important than this?"
Rasheed: "My job. Lock up when you leave"
Fazia: "C'mon, Ang. It's just a tree, that's all."
Fazia: "And this is just a flower"
Fazia: "And this is... this is..."
Fazia: "New paint job, scratched off serial numbers, no cams... someone's covering up the identity of the fleet's owner!"
What's so important about today? Isn't it obvious?
Today's the day I die.
Today I stop being Angela, and I get a new name...
Fazia: "Why can't--"
I'm just the first of many.
A fatal allergen infects an empty city the same week thousands of people are allowed in?
That's no accident. I'd stake my life on it. If I had one left...
They'll give it their all. Attempt to stop this thing. If they succeed, they'll be more than heroes...
...that's the stuff that legends are made of...
The prologue is actually a community-drawn comic that was broken down to fit the in-game comic style. The "director's cut" of the prologue was released on Twitter.
"He murdered my parents, and threw my father’s corpse down an elevator shaft where it landed at my feet. I was nine years old."
"Not exactly your kind of bedtime story."
"You’d be surprised."
"Really. Think you “get” me, Ky?"
"I know I got you..."
"Underneath all that lipstick and bravado is a little girl who had her heart ripped out of her chest. And you won’t stop until somebody pays for what that girl lost."
"All the trinkets, the power plays… it’s all a practice run. For HIM. And when you found HIM, you were relentless. Unflinching. Fearless. But here’s the kicker: You got your revenge… but that little girl still doesn’t have her heart."
"Valk, stop it--"
"“I don’t know you”? I WAS you. Always looking over my shoulder, obsessed with the boogeyman, but that toxicity will sneak up behind you and eat you alive before you even know--"
"KAIRI, GET THE @$#& OUT OF THE WAY!"
Carthage spider: "SKREEEEEEEEEEEE!!!"
"It’s still alive... kinda."
"Bag it and let’s get back to-- What the...?!"
"What was that about always having to look over your shoulder...?"
Throughout the entire quest's run, a community-drawn comic was released every week as a supplementary to the in-game comics. Each week had a different artist (1,2,3,4,5,6,7, 8, 9, 10). The following comics were released on Twitter.
The prologue of this quest was done by a community artist instead of Dark Horse Comics, making it the first community-drawn comic to make it into the game.
This quest is the swan song of Tom Casiello, a former senior writer at Respawn and one of the original writers of Apex Legends. After writing for more than 2 years, Casiello came across a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and made the difficult decision to leave. He started writing "The Legacy Antigen" during September of 2020 and decided to pour everything he had into this one final quest so he could go out with a bang. It is his love letter to Apex Legends.
According to Tom Casiello, the writers have a rule to not "threepio" anything. (This is a reference to C-3PO from Star Wars where George Lucas sacrificed logic to insert a nonsense Easter egg into the prequel trilogy.) When the Bangalore-Wraith section of the community comics came out, Casiello admitted he might have stepped over that line: Bangalore met Crypto and then she, Voidwalker Wraith, and former IMC soldiers all decided to go to the same abandoned island (Kings Canyon), in the exact same secret underground lab, on the exact same day, and at the exact same time. However, he believed that it was worth it in the end because that section of the comics was not about those coincidences. It was about Bangalore's emotional reaction upon seeing Jackson again; it was about Wraith finally being able to provide answers for a change. Casiello pushed the boundaries of believability so that these characters' stories can move forward.
The crossbow seen in chapter 5 is supposed to be the Bocek Compound Bow. The comic was completed before the Bocek's design was finalized.
