The next Twitch Prime exclusive Apex Legends skin will feature one of the battle royale’s most popular characters, Wraith, and data miners have already revealed what her new style will look like when it arrives later this month.

There’s simply no denying it ⁠— Wraith is pretty much Apex’s most popular legend. The Interdimensional Skirmisher is currently played by nearly a quarter of the fanbase, so it’s no small surprise she is next in line for a free Twitch skin.

Last month’s Prime releases have been pretty interesting. After his Season 4 debut, Revenant was adorned with a free “Gilded Rose” costume. More recently, smooth-talking Mirage got an Irish variant. Now it’s Wraith’s turn.

New Queen of Hearts Wraith skin leaked

According to Apex code digger Biast12, Wraith’s Twitch Prime skin will be called “Queen of Hearts.” On top of that, they’ve already given us a pretty good look at what the new variant costume will look like in-game too.

The rare skin ⁠— buried in the code as “wraith_*_rareplus_queenofhearts” ⁠— appears to be based on Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland villain of the same name. In the 2010 movie Helena Bonham Carter is adorned with red and white face paint.

Wraith appears to have undergone the same treatment with her Twitch Prime skin, down to the light blue eyebrow paint and narrow red lipstick. She’s also wearing red and black robes covered in card suits, including hearts.

When will the Twitch Prime Wraith skin be released?

Wraith’s new rare skin will be available from April 15, according to updated information on Apex’s Twitch Prime page. Mirage’s Lucky Charmer costume is already available there, and Wraith’s has been updated to read “April 15.”

This means that, at the time of publication, Wraith fans and Prime subscribers only have to wait nine days to get their hands on the new release variant.

How to get the free Twitch Prime Wraith skin

You will need an active Twitch Prime subscription to obtain this new Wraith skin. To add the item to your inventory, complete the following steps:

  • Visit the Apex Legends page on the Twitch Prime website.
  • Log in with the credentials for your Twitch account that has an active Prime subscription.
  • Click the CLAIM NOW button above the Queen of Hearts Wraith skin (once it becomes available on April 15).
  • When prompted, click to link your EA account with your Twitch account.
  • Once your accounts have been linked, the item will be claimed. It will then be added to your in-game inventory the next time you log in.

Unfortunately, the Queen of Hearts skin is no Voidwalker release ⁠— it’s doubtful we’ll ever see that mega-popular skin return to the game ⁠— but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth the pick-up, especially considering it’s basically free!

If you’re not interested in Wraith, don’t worry. There’s still plenty to look forward to on Apex’s horizon, from a host of new skins coming alongside the Bloodhound Town Takeover event, to the actual map-changing event itself.

Apex Legends hints at removing World’s Edge in Season 7

Apex Legends players are patiently waiting for Season 7 to begin and explore all the new content coming with it, but fans of World’s Edge will have to be patient to go back to Talos.

The map was added to Apex during Season 3 all the way back in October 2019 and was the second map in the game after King’s Canyon.

While it certainly mixed up the battle royale, it seems like World’s Edge will be on the way out when Season 7 gets going on November 4, 2020, based on what we’ve seen from Respawn.

In a tweet on Oct. 27, the official Apex Legends account hinted that “with World’s Edge on the verge of collapse, the Apex Games need to find a new home.”

It doesn’t take a genius to pick up on what Respawn is putting down here, as it seems the map will be removed from the game, at least for a while, with the start of Season 7.

This wouldn’t be without precedent either. Back in Season 3 when World’s Edge was first introduced King’s Canyon, the game’s original map from the release was removed until it returned in April of 2020.

With Ranked being broken into two splits for the new Season, Respawn plans to introduce players to Olympus, the new home of the Apex Games, before sending players back to WE later in the Ascension update.

In fact, Kings Canyon is already going to be completely nixed from Apex Legends’ ranked playlist in Season 7.

It seems likely that the Legends will board the giant rocket that appeared recently on World’s Edge and set off somewhere new to battle it out for the top spot.

As for what will happen to the train and everything else, there was a black hole showcased in Horizon’s Stories from the Outlands video, that certainly seems like it would be able to swallow the entire map, and even the planet it’s located on.
