Apex Legends 2022 Anniversary event: Skins, release date, & free rewards

Apex Legends Anniversary EventRespawn Entertainment

Apex Legends is approaching its third anniversary and as always, Respawn is celebrating in style with three weeks of free rewards.

Since Apex Legends launched back in 2019, players have been receiving four major seasonal updates every year, alongside a variety of Collection Events and Town Takeovers.

However, there’s one limited-time event that always stands out from the crowd, and that’s the incredible anniversary celebration Respawn hosts every February.

However, with Season 12 or Defiance set to go live on February 8, the devs have decided to celebrate in a different way this year. Instead of hosting a specific event, players will be receiving three weeks of rewards just for logging in.
