The next Twitch Prime exclusive skin for Apex Legends will feature Season 4’s newest character, Revenant, and data miners have already revealed what the new style is going to look like.

There was a period of uncertainty for the game’s online community in the buildup to the new season, with promotional material first showing Forge as the next character to be added, before he was brutally killed by the Mercenary Syndicate and Hammond Robotics’ deadly machine.

As we’ve seen with other characters introduced to the Apex Games, it’s always just a matter of time before Respawn Entertainment release new skins for them, and Revenant appears to be next based on leaked information from the usually accurate That1MiningGuy.

The data miner has been hard at work since the Season 4 patch went live on February 4, with lots of new content expected, and one of the discoveries is the next Twitch Prime skin.

If you thought the hype surrounding Revenant was already insane, take a look at the new outfit that’s apparently coming out soon.

The merciless character completely obliterated enemies during promotional trailers for Season 4, running riot in an office, and this new skin looks to be a continuation of that same mean streak with a handprint of blood seen on its left shoulder.


When will Revenant’s Twitch Prime skin be released?

Twitch Prime have already confirmed on their official website that a new Revenant skin is going to be released on February 7 and will be free for members to claim at that time.

This means that, at the time of writing, this new skin is just days away from being released.

Once the new skin style has been confirmed and released, we’ll be sure to let you know not only what it looks like, but how to get it as well.

If you still haven’t got your hands on the original character, it can be bought from the Apex Legends online store in-game. It costs 750 Apex Coins or can be unlocked by spending 12,000 Legend Tokens.

Respawn have revealed what’s to come for Ranked play in Apex Legends Season 7 Ascension, which is going to have two splits across different maps, including the new Olympus arena, and crossplay progression between PC, Xbox, and PlayStation.

The studio’s long term plans of merging their communities into one playlist has finally been realized. But progression towards your rank could play out differently depending on who you squad up with in the Apex Arena.

The Season 7 reveal held its fair share of twists and surprises, like a closer look at Olympus and the new Legend named Horizon, the devs also told us how the Ranked season will be split up.

Players grinding up to Predator will want to know when the mid-season reset will land as well as how rank progression will apply to teams with platters on multiple platforms.

Apex Ranked split dates and maps

The Ranked season in Apex is going to be broken into two different splits. One that takes place on Olympus, and the other moving to World’s Edge before the Ascension ends.

The Apex Legends community will be playing on the new map from the start of Season 7 on November 4 to December 15. After that, not only will ranks reset for everyone but teams will be switching over to World’s Edge for the rest of the way until Season 8.

For those keeping track, this means that Kings Canyon won’t be featured in Ascension’s Ranked playlists, though the devs said it would “return in a later season.”

Crossplay in Apex Legends will have ranked implications for people on multiple platforms.

Ranked Leagues and Crossplay

Console players who opt into crossplay will be able to play with anyone else on Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch. But we warned, if you have one PC player on your team, that means you’ll also be pooled with anyone else on Origin or Steam.

Even though this should dramatically expand the pool of players to matchmake, just know that having someone on PC will invite other players using mouse and keyboard.

Other than that, matchmaking will be the same as normal and lobbies will still be sorted by RP count. For people in Master or Apex Predator ranks, Ranked matches will only earn RP on the platform you’re on.

So if you’re in those particular rank leagues and want to climb higher on PS4, then it won’t carry over to your progress on Xbox or PC.

Season 6 Rank Rewards

Before the end of Season 6, Respawn will of course close out the era with rank-specific rewards for people to add to their inventory.

There’s going to be everything from Dive Trails to Badges and Charms that correspond to where you ended up in the Rankings by the time Season 7 rolls around.
