A leak has uncovered five new legend skins, as well as a new Wraith animation, which are currently unreleased in Apex Legends.

Apex Legends developers Respawn Entertainment have stepped up their game in recent months, first with the launch of Season 2, then the Iron Crown event, and most recently, the Voidwalker event.

Unlike Fortnite, these skins don’t introduce new character models, but instead, give a makeover to one of the ten existing legends.

The leak has revealed detailed looks at new skins for Bloodhound, Lifeline, Bangalore, Mirage, and Wattson, all with incredible new styles – although Bangalore and Mirage’s skins are fairly plain by comparison.

There is also a new character select animation for Wraith, which appears to tie in with the Voidwalker event, seeing her strike the pose from the event’s cover image.

When will leaked Apex Skins release?

According to leakers, these skins will all be added to the game for different reasons and at different times. Per u/IndigoOzir.

  • Bangalore: For Voidwalker event: Will cost 500 AC, “available next week”
  • Mirage: Twitch Prime skin
  • Lifeline: Available with physical Edition of Apex Legends – Lifeline version
  • Bloodhound: Available with physical Edition of Apex Legends – Bloodhound version
  • Wattson: A recolor for black legendary skin

The good news is that Respawn are continuing to up their game when it comes to cosmetic items, becoming more frequent and more creative as the game progresses.

There’s no doubt that Apex Legends took a hit in popularity throughout Season 1, where players were left bereft of new content, but Respawn are finally finding the balance.

If you saw the new Apex Legends map called Olympus and thought to yourself “I’d like to explore that without having to deal with annoying enemies”, then Respawn Entertainment has the perfect solution: a no-weapon LTM called Olympus Preview.

With the start of Season 7, Respawn Entertainment is adding a brand new map to Apex Legends called Olympus. After being rumored for quite a while now, the developers finally confirmed the news during the Season 7 trailer, and gave fans an even deeper dive into the map during the gameplay reveal.

While that’s all well and good, being forced to jump into a map that you don’t know and immediately fight other players trying to experience the same thing is always a bit annoying in battle royale games. Luckily, the developers seem to have a solution, and it’s a cool concept.

New Olympus Preview LTM

With the start of Season 7, Respawn will be including a new limited-time mode called Olympus Preview, which will allow players to explore and experience everything the new map has to offer without having to deal with other opponents that immediately try to kill you.

The new 30-player mode will give fans an opportunity to jump into the map and test it out to their heart’s content. They’ll even be able to test the circles.

When a new map gets added to a battle royale game, not just Apex Legends, a lot of players just want a few matches to explore and experience it before having to fight others, so this helps solve that problem.

Soon players will be able to jump into the new Apex map thanks to a weapon-free mode called Olympus Preview.

It also helps fans familiarize themselves with it so that they aren’t jumping in completely blind. The first Ranked split will be on Olympus too, so if you’re a competitive player, this new LTM comes highly recommended.

It’ll be interesting to see Apex continues this trend as time goes on. Obviously, that would require them to keep adding new maps but, nevertheless, it’s a fun concept to say the least.
