Apex Legends has some of the most diverse and creative characters in the first-person shooter genre – and these incredible skins only amplify that, with some incredible new looks for the most popular Legends in the game.

With the likes of Wraith, Pathfinder, and Gibraltar, there is ample opportunity for players to find ones they like the look of, what plays best and which one suits them more than any other.

Of course, this is often represented in the cosmetic items available for each character, too, and these skin concepts just add another layer of interest, intrigue, and personality to your favorite Legend.

Revenant – Undying God

This Aztec skin concept would definitely be unique to Apex Legends.

This Revenant skin concept from MoberRPG, named Undying God, fits perfectly with his character. His Death Totem ultimate is represented brilliantly with the Totem Pole-inspired look, which bears some similarities to Crash Bandicoot’s Aku Aku.

The Aztec stylings would definitely be a new look within the Apex Legends universe, and it may raise some questions over Revenant’s hitbox, considering he’s being held together only by his spine, but you can’t deny that it looks good.

Cyberpunk Wraith

Cyberpunk Wraith would certainly turn some heads.

Ketch_up3000 brought us this cyberpunk-inspired Wraith skin, removing some of the layers in a cool purple outfit that features various chains and a choker that capture the Cyberpunk look well.

The matching purple horns on Wraith’s head fit the style, as well as the use of make-up and the cape completing the look – it would definitely look intimidating if you saw her running at you.

Lifeline meets JoJo

Any anime fans would want to get their hands on this skin.

Any anime fan would love this one, as JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is brought to one of the more popular characters in the game, Lifeline.

Lifeline already looks like a fun character, but this is even more pronounced with a lighter outfit and hair, the blonde streak matching the stylings in JoJo while the darker top, trousers and sleeves make the accessories really stand out. This was created by Patrez390.

Undercover Nurse Caustic

This skin perfectly fits the current global health crisis.

Finally, XenotheBoi has taken inspiration from the ongoing global crisis and created this redesign of Caustic as an undercover nurse.

Although perhaps on the funnier side, this is still a brilliantly designed skin, especially considering what is going on in the world right now. As some in the comments said, this looks like it would be more commonly attributed to one of the female Legends – especially considering the skirt – but Xeno is clearly an inclusive player and hasn’t let that bother him.

The Apex Legends community continues to be as creative as ever, and it appears being locked away due to the current health crisis is only bringing out their creativity even more, giving us these fantastic skin concepts.

It’s safe to say that if any of these were added to the game, they would become pretty popular.

Apex Legends Season 7 start date moved forward one week

After an initial leak and then a change with the Season 6 Battle Pass, it appears that the start date for Apex Legends’ Season 7 start date has been moved up by a week.

Although not officially announced yet by Respawn Entertainment, all indications seem to be pointing to Season 7 kicking off a week earlier than had been originally scheduled.

According to the in-game Battle Pass menu, S7 was initially set to start on November 10, which made sense given the length of a standard Apex Legends season. Now, prominent data-miner ‘Shrugtal’ leaked updated game code that showed the date being changed to November 4.

Following Shrugtal’s tweet, Apex’s Battle Pass menu was adjusted to show that, as of October 21, there were only 14 days left remaining in S6, rather than the 21 that had been displayed earlier the same day.

This all but confirms the date change, which Respawn have not yet explained, although it could be because S6 had been delayed by a week, so this could be the devs wanting to keep subsequent seasons right on schedule rather than all of them also starting a week later.

While this change fixes that issue and also means Apex fans will be able to access Season 7’s content a week earlier, at the same time, they’ll have a week less than originally anticipated to experience everything that Season 6 has to offer.

It makes more sense now that the annual Fight or Fright Halloween-themed event, which starts October 22, is wrapping up on November 3, just in time for the new season to launch.

This change also helps to explain why Respawn have been so teaser-happy recently, putting out voice recordings almost on a daily basis hinting at what’s coming to their prized battle royale in its seventh chapter.

While we don’t know what these recordings mean just yet, since they all seem to be pieces of a larger puzzle, there’s no doubt that the Apex community is getting excited again over that familiarly awesome feeling of new content on the way.

S7 is set to introduce a brand new legend named Horizon and is also expected to add a new machine gun called Predator, although the latter has yet to be confirmed. Of course, players will also have a new battle pass full of content to jump into.
