Another St Patricks Day-themed Apex Legends skin has been revealed by a leaker as, this time, Crypto joins the brigade of green cosmetics.

Like plenty of other popular titles, Apex Legends has been tying into real-world events and holidays with their own in-game events and cosmetics for the celebrations. 

With St Patricks Day on the horizon, coming on March 16 to be exact, it seems as if Respawn Entertainment will be joining the party and tapping into the all green colored celebrations. A ‘Leprechaun’ skin for Mirage was revealed on 5, with that supposedly being the next Twitch Prime cosmetic, but Crypto also appears to be getting some shine.

Crypto joined the Apex Legends roster back in Season 3.

The skin was revealed by Apex Legends leaker iLootGames, who also showed off the new Mirage look, after he got his hands on some other recolors for different legends. 

Focusing on Crypto, though, the St Patrick’s Day themed skin is a rework of his legendary ‘The Hired Gun’ skin which pretty much resembles movie character John Wick’s black suit. 

As you can probably guess, with the leaked skin, the Surveillance Expert legend ditched the all-black suit in favor of an all-green look – though his apparent new cosmetic lacks the repeated use of Shamrocks like the earlier leaked Mirage Twitch Prime skin.

In his video, iLootGames also showcased a recolor for Wraith and Lifeline that should be available in the future – though they didn’t exactly tie into the St Patrick’s Day theme like Crypto and Mirage.

With the skins still yet to be released by Respawn, the developers could still re-tweak the new cosmetics, though that seems unlikely as they’re already in the game files.Whether or not there will be any bigger celebrations for St Patrick’s Day – including possible event and other content – remains to be seen as well. Though, there is a Town Takeover for Bloodhound coming in the future.

Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage make surprise return to Apex Legends

In an impromptu update, Respawn Entertainment have delighted Apex Legends fans by bringing back both the Kings Canyon map and the Mirage Voyage point of interest for a limited time.

The Apex community lit up with a blend of surprise and joy when users logged onto the popular battle royale and found out that Kings Canyon was reintroduced to the game’s playlist options. As an added bonus, the game’s most infamous party boat, the Mirage Voyage, also spontaneously re-emerged as a landing spot.

A common emotional accompaniment to surprise is confusion and this geographical return was not lacking in either, according to Twitter reactions. The option to play on Kings Row was originally speculated to be a mistake because the playlist choice was only showing up for some players and mysteriously appearing then disappearing for others. 

But, following an official announcement from the Apex Legends Twitter account, it’s confirmed that the returns of Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage are no mistake. In fact, they will be around for a full week.

Echoing the enthusiasm of their fans, Apex’s social media account delivered the news with a simple nod to jubilations: “It’s party time.”

And, as fans have been discovering in the brief time the map’s been made available, there are some tweaks to Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage this time around — including some notable teasers and easter eggs. 

In one such piece of subtle content, there is a voicemail left to Mirage by his mother, Evelyn Witt, which can be found on a phone or tablet device that’s been left on one of the boat’s green couches. While it’s not a groundbreaking piece of lore, it does add to the game’s longrunning storylines.

This marks the first time since August 2020 that Mirage Voyage is available to contest in Apex Legends and the first time ever that it has sailed into Kings Canyon instead of World’s Edge. This blend of returns is both a chance for nostalgia and for content overlap.

Although the new playlist option will only be available until January 21, fans will be curious to know if this means Respawn intends on continuing to spontaneously bring back limited playlist offerings in the future.
