Respawn Entertainment have revealed their newest teaser ahead of Apex Legends Season 7, involving a black hole and a small spaceship.

With Apex Legends Season 7 dropping on November 4, fans of Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale have been eager for details about the new Legend, a potential new map, and everything else that a brand new season brings.

The devs have already dropped some hints about potentially adding ‘Olympus’ as a new map, used Horizon as a potential new Legend to give players challenges, and started talking about who will be receiving a buff with the big update.

They’ve also added a big teaser in the form of a familiar-looking ‘UFO’ floating off the coast of both World’s Edge and King’s Canyon. Now, they’ve moved on to a new teaser – a black hole.

Horzion was the latest Legend to be teased in-game.

The black hole doesn’t appear in Kings Canyon or World’s Edge, but instead, is the main image being used to hype up the new Stories from the Outlands video

The video, which is set to go live on Monday, October 26 at 3 pm GMT/11 am EDT/8 am PDT, is titled ‘Promise’ and in the image showing the black hole, a small spacecraft can also be seen in the bottom left-hand corner. 

Some players have quickly suggested that the video is all about Horizon’s official reveal as a new Legend, but it could be showing a flight to Olympus for the new map. We won’t know for sure until the video is premiered. 

Each Tales from the Outlands videos has given us more and more insight into the bigger story surrounding Apex Legends, including things like the backstory of Bloodhound and the death of Forge. 

What this one has in store still remains to be seen, but it’s sure to be packed with teasers for Season 7, and potentially even other future seasons.

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.”
