Are data miners ruining the surprise element in Apex’s Quests?
Data miners usually go through the game files after every major update to figure out what Respawn or any game devs are currently working on to give players a taste of what to expect in future events. In the process of digging through these files, sometimes they accidentally reveal something that the writers were actually trying to keep a secret from players until the very last minute.
When the story leaks out, players unwillingly get caught in the crossfire of these spoilers. Consequently, these story spoilers might affect their enjoyment of the game.
