The hype is building for Apex Legends’ all-new collection event – Lost Treasures – and a bunch of new cosmetics have been revealed alongside the event prize track.

During EA Play 2020, Respawn Entertainment dropped a slew of Apex Legends news, including the confirmation of crossplay, a rework for Lifeline, a cosmetic for Mirage, and the upcoming collection event – Lost Treasures.

The event, was which leaked with the initial name of ‘Treasure Hunter’ back on June 5, is set to give Crypto a town takeover and add a new limited-time mode. On top of that, there are going to be 24 themed cosmetics with Respawn revealing a few already. 

In their post about the new event, the developers revealed that the collection event Prize Track – which proved pretty popular in the System Override event – will be making its return. Just like daily challenges, you score points and rank up your track for free rewards.

Included in the track are two weapons skins, a gun charm, and a new skin for Pathfinder. There are also plenty of XP bonuses, and trackers that can be used on your card for the different legends.

All of the event cosmetics will be available to be purchased from the store via event themed Apex Packs or directly in the legends tab for Apex Coins or Crafting Metals.

On top of that, there will also be a Special Offers tab for seven other cosmetics that will each cost 500 Apex Coins. These include skins for Octane and Bloodhound, skins for the Devotion and RE-45, and three charms.

Crypto, Loba, and Revenant were all put into the spotlight with the announcement of the event with their brand-new, gold-themed skins being highlighted.

Lost Treasures will get underway on Tuesday, June 23, which also marks the start of the loot vaults opening, and run through July 7.

Once it launches, there should be a few legends changes on top of the Lifeline rework, so be sure to keep an eye out for some patch notes.

How to watch Apex Legends Stories from the Outlands: Good as Gold

Respawn Entertainment has announced that Good as Gold, a brand new entry in the Apex Legends: Stories from the Outlands series of shorts will premiere on Monday, January 18, 2021. 

Apex Legends is only weeks away from its eighth season, scheduled to launch in early February, which means it’s time for the developers to tease the new Legend who will join the roster.

Respawn Entertainment have confirmed the next entry in the Stories from the Outlands, titled Good as Gold. All we have so far is a small teaser of what will be included, thanks to the image shared on the official Apex Legends Twitter account.

Good as Gold time and official stream

The Good as Gold episode will go live on January 18 at 8AM PT. You can watch the stream embedded below.

For international timezones, the video will go live at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET / 4 PM GMT / 5pm CEST / 1AM JST.

We know that the video will be 4:19 long, which isn’t quite as long as some previous episodes, but still leaves plenty time for a lot of lore to be revealed. Horizon’s Promise episode was very similar in length, at 4:13.

The thumbnail teases an unknown figure holding a gold grenade, with a skeleton in the background. Beyond that, there’s not much to break down and interpret from this small tease.

More than likely, the short will give a sort of teaser for some new content coming to the game soon. These lore focused videos have revealed a new Legend in the past, such as ‘The Promise’ episode, which told Horizon’s backstory ahead of Season 7.

Over the past few days, teases for the Season 8 Legend have been cropping up in both the actual game and on Apex’s official Twitter account, so it wouldn’t be surprising if this new short confirmed who they are and what exactly their abilities will be. Still, that’s purely speculation and it remains to be seen exactly what will be shown.

All in all, it’ll be interesting to see what comes out of the short itself. Will we have official confirmation of the Season 8 Legend by the time the video’s done? Only time will tell.
