The Apex Legends community are getting hyped over the August 6 announcement that revealed, among other things, brand new skins dropping for various characters in the game.

Respawn Entertainment have been on a tear with delivering content that their player base have been vigorously requesting. One such idea is the inclusion of a solo mode, which will be coming to the battle royale for a small stint.

Though players might have been too hyped on the solo mode announcement to notice that the devs also gave a peak into the first of what could be many new skins in the upcoming in-game event.

Respawn EntertainmentThe next Apex Legends event is bringing loads of new content.

In their Twitter announcement, the Apex Legends devs gave a look at a myriad of upcoming designs that are perfectly suited for the Iron Crown Collection Event which will take place on August 13.

“Next week, only one can reign,” the announcement read. “The Iron Crown Collection Event featuring an all-new Solos limited time mode begins 8/13.”

It looks like Mirage, Bloodhound, Lifeline and Bangalore are all getting new designs for the upcoming event in the game.

Though some of the characters only briefly appear, it was just enough for players to get a great view to build up the anticipation for their release.

Mirage’s skin looks similar to a previous red-vested design, but this time he’s got a shiny new set of customized holo devices glittering in gold.

Bloodhound has suited up for their incursions in the Apex Games. The Technological Tracker can be seen in a medieval-style suit of armor complete with bold red feathers peering from their helmet.

Meanwhile, Lifeline is getting an incredible skin that shows her covered in a black outfit with majestic gold trimming, highlighted by what appears to be a mask of some sort.

Finally, Bangalore is looking like a stunner with a new active skin that shows a glimmering chainmail design from the future.

Season 2 has already delivered on similarly epic skins for Caustic as well as Octane, and it looks like the collection is going to grow even further in the Iron Crown Collection Event which will run from August 13 to August 27.

With the recent arrival of Season 7, Apex Legends fans are jumping into Olympus with all of their favorite Legends. One voice actor of the non-binary Bloodhound recently shared what they sound like prior to vocal edits.

Arriving alongside the launch of Apex Legends back in 2019, Bloodhound was one of the first Legends available for players to utilize in matches. Billed as a legendary hunter, this Technological Tracker is the first non-binary character in the hit battle royale.

As the Apex seasons have progressed, the character has become increasingly powerful and seen their popularity grown.

So, in a peek behind the scenes, the voice actor behind Bloodhound has revealed how they sound before Respawn adds a few tweaks to make it sound as it does now.

Bloodhound is, quite simply, one of Apex’s most popular legends.

The voice behind the mask

In a recent post to their TikTok account, voice actor Allegra Clark shared a clip of what the voice lines she records sound like prior to editing.

Stating that “what I do is only part of the vocal performance,” Clark details that a cool gas-mask vocal effect also pitches down her voice about two steps.

While the direction Allegra was originally given was that of an “androgynous, badass place,” she then goes on to share what Bloodhound’s iconic voice sounds like pre-editing. With a stark contrast to her regular voice, Clark’s vocal modulation and Icelandic/Old Norse accent instantly show off that recognizable cadence they have with their iconic lines.

The fans react

Shared on Reddit by IIIlandist, fans have been reacting to the non-binary character’s lines being heard without the filter.

One commenter stated: “when she said Mozambique here I felt that,” with another adding, “when she said Mozambique here I died.” Fans of the character were excited to hear how their vocal performance came about and seeing the effort of production that goes into creating the Legend.

It’s incredibly interesting seeing behind the scenes information regarding voice work and the like. This clip shared by Clark is no exception.
