Respawn Entertainment has unveiled the official trailer for Apex Legends Season 4: Assimilation, which included a first look at some of the new outfit skins and weapon camos that will be available in the Battle Pass.

Apex Legends players have already been getting hints and previews for what’s to come in Season 4, which kicks off on Tuesday, February 4.

Following the official launch trailer for the newest legend on January 30, Respawn gave fans an early look at some of the cosmetics coming for the Season 4 Battle Pass.

There were three named skins included in the Battle Pass portion of the Season 4 gameplay video, one each for Wraith, Lifeline, and Wattson.

Starting with Wraith, her new Battle Pass skin is called ‘Perfect Soldier,’ of Legendary quality.

The skin itself definitely seems to be inspired by Apex’s newest legend Revenant, giving Wraith robot limbs, glowing purple eyes, and cables where her hair would be if she were still human.

The picture below, also for the same skin, includes a fiery weapon camo that could also be featured in the Battle Pass, although Respawn didn’t confirm that in the trailer.

Wraith definitely seems to have some cyborg “upgrades” in this skin.

Lifeline’s Battle Pass skin is called ‘Health Drain’ and gives her base skin a sort-of magenta recolor.

Sticking with the cyborg theme for the debut of Revenant, Lifeline also gets a few cybernetic enhancements on her neck, but she hasn’t gone full robot like Wraith.

The final named skin is for Wattson, called ‘Cyberpunked,’ doesn’t make the legend completely into another bot, but it does give her a cool leather jacket and even an eyepatch.

Her legs have been replaced with what definitely seem to be robot legs though going along with Revenant and the “Assimilation” theme for Season 4.

Wattson would fit right into Cyberpunk 2077 with this skin.

Along with all of the named Battle Pass skins for Season 4, a number of other skins were previewed in the Feb 3 trailer as well, but it’s unknown whether or not they’ll be included in the Battle Pass

At the beginning of the trailer, we get a brief look at a startling white Crypto skin that makes him resemble one of the droids trying to kill Will Smith in “I, Robot.”

Crypto could also pass as a Borg from Star Trek with this look.

Towards the end of the trailer, we get a good look at skins for Caustic and Revenant before they take out the cameraperson.

Caustic’s green getup seems to be reflective but Revenant’s goat-headed horror of a skin is sure to stick around in your nightmares long after he takes out your squad.

The last thing anyone will want to see during Season 4.

Along with the legend skins, there were also a few previews for upcoming weapon camos as well, but like the unnamed skins, it’s currently unknown whether the camos will be included in the Battle Pass.

A clean, white R-99 skin was shown off, along with what looks like an adorable little Nessie charm. The other weapon camo was an orange one for the Devotion LMG.

The Devotion’s camo is orange and black, and may have a glow effect.

Apex’s Season 3 Battle Pass cost 950 Apex Coins (around $9.50) which means there’s a good chance that’s what Season 4’s will cost players as well.

Judging by how many quality outfit skins, weapon camos, and other cosmetics skins it will contain, on top of the other bonuses and perks, it’s safe to say that purchasing the Battle Pass will be well worth it.

Apex Legends fixes annoying Rampart & Treasure Pack bugs in Dec 1 patch

Apex Legends devs have rolled out fixes for frustrating Season 7 bugs that makes players face an infinite loading screen and a separate glitch causing Rampart’s turret not to stick to the Trident.

Treasure packs returned to Apex for Season 7, as a way to keep the battle pass interesting and give players something to come back and search for every single day, if you don’t get trapped, that is.

The packs have become a significant part of Apex matches since players don’t want to miss one and fall behind on completing the set and miss out on some cosmetics.

For some though, the packs have caused major issues during Season 7 though, as a bug would randomly lock them in a loading screen.

Treasure Packs were introduced in Apex Legends season 6, and now they’ve caused quite the headache.

That wasn’t all throwing players off. Rampart mains also found that, while it was advertised in the Season 7 trailer, the legend’s turret wouldn’t always stick to the new Trident vehicles.

Both of these bugs have definitely been getting under players’ skin, but the good news is Respawn have rolled out a fix for both issues that will hopefully put an end to the incoveniences.

“As an FYI, we’ve deployed a small patch to re-enable the ability to place Rampart’s turret on the Trident as well as provide a fix for players who are getting stuck on certain menu pages,” Apex wrote on Twitter on Dec. 1.

This means that once you log in following the update, treasure packs should no longer get you caught in a loop, and Rampart can once again fire Sheila atop the Trident.

Previous reports claimed that another update had been rolled out to try and fix the treasure pack glitch already, but if you’ve been on Apex’s Reddit recently you’ll see still numerous posts of people still encountering it, and a similar issue with getting stuck on the main loading screen as well.

Despite a few bumps like this along the way, Season 7 has generally been well-received by the Apex community, so hopefully, this patch takes care of these issues for good and let us get back to playing.
