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 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.

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.

On November 24, Respawn Entertainment revealed a brand new trailer for the event.

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. The trailer showed off nine in total, from what we could see.

These skins will be available in bundles in the Item Shop from December 1, seen below.

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

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

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.

On the event, they said in a blog post: “This year, when your squad respawns after a round has finished, you will spawn on your own supply ship as it follows the train. From here, your squad will be able to survey the battlefield and skydive into combat as the train arrives at its next station and the objective unlocks. The squad that won the previous round will respawn directly on the train.

Respawn Hover Tanks

In the trailer, new Respawn Hover Tanks could also be seen, seen below.

The way these will work in Apex Legends was not broken down as much as the other features, though it seems fairly obvious that they will be incorporated alongside the Respawn Beacon system we’ve come to know.
