The launch of Apex Legends Season 5: Fortune’s Favor also means that PS4 players will be reaping rewards of the new Play Pack that comes with exclusive skins and other cosmetic items.

Sony and Respawn have previously released packs with skins for Legends like Wattson and Octane, but they’re now going to give two new characters a splash of that PlayStation blue for the new Play Pack.

While there isn’t anything for Loba, the newest character in Apex Legends, the qualifying accounts will find six new pieces of content they can add to their collection the moment they claim the free rewards.

How to claim the Apex Legends PS Plus Play Packs

The next batch of free PlayStation gear for Apex Legends is here.

Like it says in the name of the listing, these items are exclusive for PlayStation Plus players. This pack will be free of charge as long as people have an active PS Plus membership while trying to claim it.

Picking up your free skins and banners is as easy as going to the PlayStation Store page for the ‘Apex Legends: PlayStation Plus Play Pack’ and claiming it. As soon as you do that, they’ll be added to your game the next time you open it up.

Apex Legends Season 5: Fortune’s Favor is bringing a lot of new skins.

The bundle contains two of each Legends skins, weapon cosmetics, and banners, packing in a total of six items for no charge. There are two PlayStation-blue skins for Gibraltar and Crypto as well as banners for each, in addition to two new designs for the R-301 and Mastiff.

Gibraltar and Crypto’s skins give them a light hue of blue with bursts of white patches across their pattern. The banners for them will also give them a healthy coat of PlayStation’s color scheme.

This will be Gibby’s second skin to come out of a Play Pack. A deep blue skin for him and Bloodhound came out around the same time the battle royale first launched.

While the items in that first pack were overtly PS-centric designs, the following free bundles revolve around the general blue hue of the brand console.

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.”
