Apex Legends skin customizer concept will test your color-matching skill

One Apex Legends community member’s concept for a custom skins color option has got the game’s player base wondering when something like that could be added to the game.

There are some downright beautiful character skins in Apex Legends. In any game where character skins are present, players want themselves to look as bold, colorful, and unique as possible.

But with only a finite number of skins, that limits the amount of different cosmetic options that players have access to. But one member of the community came up with a concept that can change all that.

Respawn EntertainmentAll the Apex Legends in their original skins.

Created by Apex Legends subreddit user XenotheBoi, the standard model customization color pack allows players to take the original skin of each character and add custom colors into one of three slots.

With the Bangalore they used for example, the first color slot is for her grenades, her second slot is for armor, gloves, and kneepads, and the third is for her shirt and boots.

In their concept, players could unlock access to the customization pack with either a combination of Legend Tokens and Crafting Metals, or with a massive donation of Apex Coins.

It looks like players could then spend additional Tokens or Metals on different color tones, or save up and buy fancy patterns to paste onto their Legends.

In the post’s comments, several users expressed their desire for a system like this to be implemented into the game.

However, many also gave a realistic reply that Respawn and EA are unlikely to add it because it would just eat into profits they make from their usual microtransaction model.

Apex’s developers aren’t alone in maintaining this cosmetic status quo, as neither Fortnite, Call of Duty, or any other game title that makes millions off microtransactions offer a level of customization this thorough. Certain skins in Fortnite have different preset customization options, but that’s the extent of it.

If Respawn took an idea like this and added it to the game, it would likely have a higher upfront cost and a higher cost per each color option. But given how well the idea resonates with the community, it could still be very popular with players.

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.

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.”
