New Legendary skins for Apex Legends have been revealed as part of the upcoming “Legendary Hunt” Limited Time Mode.

Apex Legends developers Respawn Entertainment announced on May 30 that the game is getting its first ever Limited-Time Mode (LTM), titled “Legendary Hunt”, which is expected to kick off some time in the week beginning June 3, most likely on Tuesday, June 4.

After an underwhelming start to Apex’s first Season, the Legendary Hunt LTM offers an injection of new content to keep players engaged until the revamped Season Two arrives, which is expected to be later in June.

How to earn new Legendary Hunt loot

By taking part in the Legendary Hunt LTM, players will have the chance to earn brand-new Legend and weapon skins.

While not all of the new skins have been revealed, those that have been shown off already look like some of the most interesting cosmetics in the game – and Apex Community Manager “Jayfresh” confirmed that the “skin quality [is] improving” heading into Season Two.

By completing a set of limited-time challenges, players will be able to earn the new “Master of the Hunt” Epic skin for Bloodhound, along with other as-yet unknown skins.

Two themed Legendary skins have also been revealed, the “Legendary Honored Prey” skin for the R-301, and the “Night Terror” skin for Wraith, on which the eyes will apparently glow and “pulse actively”.

All players with the Season One Wild Frontier Battle Pass will automatically receive the R-301 skin, while the Wraith skin will be unlocked by players who have ranked their Battle Pass to level 15 or above before the end of the LTM.

Details of the Legendary Hunt challenges have yet to be fully revealed, but the LTM will include an “Elite Queue” which players can join by finishing in the top 5 of their matches, but in order to stay in the queue must continue to finish in the top 5.

The LTM will also help to alleviate some of the frustrations players have had with the amount of time it takes to level up the Season One Battle Pass. During the Legendary Hunt LTM, finishing in the top 5 of a game will grant an entire Battle Pass level once per day.

In addition, there will also be a double XP weekend from Friday, June 7 at 10 AM PST to Monday, June 10 at 10 AM PST. During this time, players will earn double XP on both their standard and Battle Pass progression.

Apex Legends YouTuber leaks Season 7 lobby & Horizon skin on accident

An Italian Youtuber seems to have accidentally shared embargoed footage of the upcoming Apex Legends Season 7’s lobby, challenges, and even a brand new skin for the yet-to-be-released Horizon character.

Apex Legends Season 7 is set to kick off on November 4, and with everyone itching to get a look at all of the new content headed our way, some of it may have been unveiled a tad bit too early.

As is the case before pretty much every new season, some of the game’s more prominent content creators are given early access to try out and record the new content for their YouTube channels, which can’t be released before a specified date.

For S7, that date was Monday, November 2, but, on October 31, YouTuber Mox600 inadvertently uploaded a shot of Horizon with her new outfit skin standing in the revamped lobby, before he quickly made the video private.

In the leaked video, we see a mohawked, neon Horizon who’s also rocking some goggles and what seems to be body armor as well. Let’s just say it’s a good thing Olympus seems to have plenty of color going on because this one might stick out like a sore thumb on maps like Kings Canyon and World’s Edge.

Because Respawn won’t start selling new items for her until the season gets going, this cosmetic is most likely a Battle Pass skin, maybe even the one players unlock in the final Tier.

Apex’s pre-game lobby has a fresh new look as well, as it seems to actually be outside in the streets of Olympus, with the brand new Season 7 map serving as a backdrop for player banners.

Along with these we also got a look at the new STARS system. Combined with match XP, the STARS will contribute to a repeatable weekly challenge that grants a full Battle Pass level with each completion. This XP is specific to Battle Pass, meaning it won’t impact Account Level progression.

While this definitely appears to be a legit leak of upcoming Season 7 content, in the grand scheme of things there’s still a lot of actual gameplay to see as we get ready to head into Olympus, so we wouldn’t really consider this that massive of a spoiler.

Exactly what will be included in the upcoming Battle Pass should be soon revealed as well, but at least we got a look at one of the skins that’ll likely be featured, and if it’s anything to go by, Season 7 might be a doozy.
