Battle Royale gamers, get ready to celebrate — the Apex Legends Anniversary Collection Event arrives next week and will reward players with 22 new items
Apex Legends has been around for two years now after a sudden and surprising launch. While it doesn't quite have the same level of popularity as Fortnite, it carved out a respectable niche in the Battle Royale gaming world. Now, the developers are celebrating the game's second anniversary with a cool new event alongside an opportunity to buy some stylish new skins.
Get hyped up for the new content by checking out the Apex Legends Anniversary Collection Event Trailer!
What's Coming in the Apex Legends Anniversary Collection Event?
The Apex Legends Anniversary Collection Event will give players the opportunity to unlock a bunch of new goodies. The new Anniversary Rewards Track has 10 Apex Packs and a bunch of other cool rewards available for players to unlock.
As part of this event, the "Locked and Loaded" Takeover is arriving on the Play Apex playlist. You'll touch down with a full suite of Level 1 gear, including:
- White Shotgun Bolt
- HCOG Classic Scope
- White Evo Shield
- White Helmet
- White Backpack
- White Knockdown Shield
- 2 Syringes
- 2 Shield Cells
- 1 Stack of Shotgun Ammo
That's not all, though — logging in for the first time during the event will also get you the following rewards:
- 1 Apex Pack
- 1 Event Badge
- 3 matching Stat Trackers for Bangalore
If you happen to earn any Apex Packs on the Reward Track after you've already unlocked everything, you'll be given their purchase cost of 700 Apex Coins instead. The Apex Legends Anniversary Collection Event also gives players the opportunity to purchase 24 items that have been given a fresh look with red and gold accents. There are, of course, bundles available for those of you that don't mind dropping a few bucks.
Finally, Respawn Entertainment has mixed up the Heirloom Rewards in a cool way. Unlocking all of the items on the Anniversary Rewards Track will give you 150 Heirloom Shards; this will allow you to unlock any Heirloom item that you might want.
When is the Apex Legends Anniversary Collection Event Start Date?
The Apex Legends Anniversary Collection Event start date will be February 9, 2021. The event will last until February 23, 2021. A specific start and end time have not been announced at the time of writing.
Also Announced: Apex Legends Nintendo Switch Release Date
This cool new anniversary event wasn't the only recent announcement — the Apex Legends Nintendo Switch release date has been locked in for March 9, 2021.
Earlier reporting indicated that Apex Legends might launch on the same day as Season 8, owing in part to a blurb contained in the YouTube description of the Season's trailers in some languages. Unfortunately, that didn't prove to be the case, but we now know the release date for certain.
You'll be able to play the Apex Legends Anniversary Collection Event starting on February 9, 2021. If you haven't yet jumped into this great game, you can play it for free on PC and Consoles via its official website.
