A Respawn Entertainment developer has given an incredible Apex Legends Revenant cosplay their seal of approval, after it was shared to Reddit on May 6. 

Added in Season 4 with the incredible murder of James ‘The Forge’ McCormick, Revenant is one of Apex’s more difficult legends to cosplay. His spider-like body and skeletal facial features mean any re-creation requires a massive amount of effort to perfect.

The inherent level of difficulty has not deterred one Apex Legends cosplayer, who shared her incredible Revenant make-up art on May 6, to the battle royale’s sub-reddit.

Revenant is one of Apex’s darker legends.

Redditor ‘emiliafrnndz‘ shared her incredible make-up skills on May 6, explaining that the look took her four hours to perfect. The Synthetic Nightmare’s red bandana has been perfectly recreated on Emilia’s forehead through make-up alone.

Similarly, the skeletal facial structure is on point, offering the pale, deathly look that Revenant has become widely known for.

Responses to the make-up art were overwhelmingly positive, with the cosplay sitting at nearly 22,000 upvotes at the time of writing.

The acclaim didn’t just come from Apex Legends fan. One Respawn Entertainment game-designer, Reddit user ‘Re-BadMofo’, commented: “This make-up f**ks. Nice job.”

The make-up artist responded gratefully to the Respawn dev.

While a number of cosplays utilize creative costumes, Emilia has proved the incredible recreations make-up artists are capable of. It is a unique twist on one of Apex Legends’ most creatively designed characters.

Apex Legends Season 7 Launch trailer reveals new map, Horizon abilities

The launch trailer for the hotly anticipated Season 7 of Apex Legends is here, showing the journey of the Legends on their way to the new home for the games: Olympus, and the arrival of new Legend, Horizon.

With one week to go before the new season drops on November 4, anticipation for a new season is probably at an all time high, thanks to a number of new exciting additions.

These include the first-ever vehicle in Apex Legends, called The Trident, an all new Clubs system, the new Legend, and of course, biggest of all, the new map – Olympus.

Olympus takes the games to the planet of Psamathe – which happens to be the hometown of Lifeline and Octane, and the pair were not too excited by the prospect when they learned of it in the Season 5 quest.

But, there’s no time to delay now, as World’s Edge is “on the edge of collapse”, so the games must move to their new location.

For the first time we’ll be battling it out in a more urban environment (Skulltown lovers rejoice). The gameplay should feel quite a bit different here too, given the different landscape vs both World’s Edge and Kings Canyon. Check out the trailer:

We also get a better look at Horizon in action here, a teaser of what is to come with her abilities when they’re finally available to use in-game.

Alongside the launch of Season 7, Apex Legends is also launching on Steam on the same day, which should not only increase the playerbase, but also reduce waiting times for Origin players, who will now be in ‘crossplay’ with Steam players. It’s bad news for Switch players though, as that version of the game has been pushed back until 2021.

Apex Legends Season 7 starts on all platforms on November 4.
