Apex Legends players could soon be given the option to gift or transfer items to teammates, if new leaked information is to be believed. 

The popular battle royale game, which has attracted a player base of over 50 million people since its shock release on February 4, has already launched its first Battle Pass with a whole host of new content for fans to dig into. 

Yet, Respawn Entertainment could be about to go one step further and add a gifting feature to the game that could set it apart from rival titles Fortnite and PUBG. 

Respawn EntertainmentIs a money sharing option coming soon to Apex Legends?

The new leak, which has been posted to Twitter by @RealApexLeaks, shows files named ‘team_money_transfer’ and ‘team_money_transfer_hidden’, which has left data miners scratching their heads about what it could be eluding to. 

While it might be pure speculation, this could be a gifting tool for teams to send each other different content or perhaps even some of the different types of Apex Legends currencies. 

Whether or not this turns out to be a major feature or something of particular use for players in the future remains to be seen, but it’s just one of many interesting leaks uncovered by the account so far. 

Other leaked information hints at the developer working on a new map, as well as dragons swarming into King’s Canyon in the near future. 

However, we’ll have to wait and see if any of these come to fruition.

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. These dates haven’t been confirmed by Respawn yet, but reliable data-miner Shrugtal has provided the early schedule.

Badges for Holo-Day Bash 2020 are already visible in Apex Legends.

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.

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.

These skins will be available in bundles in the Item Shop, which have already been leaked by data miners. For a complete look at all the bundles and skins, check out our full post here.

Thanks to Biast12, we can see an early showcase of all the bundles that will be dropping during the Holo-Day Bash 2020 event.

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

Winter Express LTM

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.

How the mode will change for 2020’s version isn’t known yet, but there’s set to be “improvements.”
