A handful of skins and cosmetics have been leaked for an upcoming holiday-themed event in Apex Legends, believed to be the next ‘collection’ event.

With Season 3 of Apex Legends extended beyond the normal end date, all the way until February, it’s important for Respawn Entertainment to keep players engaged for longer, without a new season launch to look forward to.

With the first-ever holiday period coming up for Apex Legends, which launched in February 2019, it’s no surprise that there will be some Christmas-themed content on the way – after all, we already have snow on the new Season 3 map.

As data miners often scavenge through the game files after new updates though, the secrets of what is planned for the event have been leaked, with a host of skins and cosmetics revealed early.

So far, Christmas skins have been leaked for a number of the legends, and presumably, there is one for all eleven of them. Thanks to leakers @iLootGames and @That1MiningGuy, we have an up-close look at these leaked skins.

Mirage is actually rumored to be the centerpiece of this event, with a new location just for him, and he’s getting a nutcracker skin too.

Wattson and Pathfinder haven’t been forgotten about either, as they can be seen in their winter skins alongside Mirage and Octane in this leaked promotional image for the event.

This is the best image leakers have shared so far of the Banglore event skin, and it’s finally one that Bangalore mains can get excited about.

Apex Legends winter cosmetics

This holiday cosmetic drop won’t just be skins either, as weapon charms and new character quips with winter themes have also been leaked.

Prolific data miner That1MiningGuy even leaked a complete look at upcoming cosmetics, as well as the ‘Winter Express’ train LTM mode that looks like it’ll be themed around Mirage.

Also confirmed from the game code was the name of the collection event, and how the items will be acquired.

There’s no date for the start of the event or when the cosmetics will be added, but we can safely presume it will be here in time for December 25 at the very latest.

Apex Legends Holo-Day Bash 2020: Start date, skins, Winter Express LTM

It’s almost that time of year again, and Apex Legends’ second holiday season is about to get into full swing. Holo-Day Bash is set to return for 2020, with all new skins, and a rerun of the Winter Express LTM.

To keep up with the yearly festivities, the first event of Apex Legends Season 7 will be holiday-themed – this we know thanks to some badges that have already confirmed the 2020 Holo-day bash ahead of an official announcement from Respawn.

The exact same thing happened with this year’s Fight or Fright event, for Halloween, which was also revealed early due to in-game badges that couldn’t be unlocked yet.

So, if you’re wondering when Holo-day Bash 2020 starts and ends, what kind of cosmetics will be available, and what mode to expect, here’s everything we know so far.

When is Holo-Day Bash 2020 in Apex Legends?

The Holo-Day bash will start on December 1, and run through until January 4. These dates haven’t been confirmed by Respawn yet, but reliable data-miner Shrugtal has provided the early schedule.

Badges for Holo-Day Bash 2020 are already visible in Apex Legends.

Unlike last year though, this is not a Collection event. Instead, like Fight or Fright, Holo-Day Bash 2020 is just a Themed event. That means there won’t be a new Heirloom to unlock, whereas last year,  Pathfinder’s boxing gloves could be unlocked by completing the collection.

Holo-Day Bash 2020 skins

Just because it’s not a collection event though, doesn’t mean there won’t be new skins and cosmetics to get your hands on.

These skins will be available in bundles in the Item Shop, which have already been leaked by data miners. For a complete look at all the bundles and skins, check out our full post here.

Thanks to Biast12, we can see an early showcase of all the bundles that will be dropping during the Holo-Day Bash 2020 event.

There’s also an event prize tracker, which you will be able to complete through challenges.

Winter Express LTM

Speaking of challenges, you’ll want to complete these in the “new-and-improved” Winter Express LTM.

Winter Express will return in the Holo-Day Bash 2020 event.

For those who didn’t play last year, Winter Express takes place on World’s Edge, with Mirage as the game announcer. The objective is to win control of the train over three rounds. And there’s no loot – instead, Legends are given preset loadouts.

How the mode will change for 2020’s version isn’t known yet, but there’s set to be “improvements.”
