Apex Legends players have yet another new skin to grab in September thanks to Prime Gaming (formerly known as Twitch Prime) — and this time, it’s for the Technological Tracker, Bloodhound.

Season 6 brought new Legend Rampart to the Apex Games, and a fresh skin for her with Prime Gaming, but this time it’s one of the original Legends being shown some love.

Bloodhound’s new look is called ‘Will of the Allfather’, with multiple hues of purple and orange spread across their standard outfit, sure to make you stand out among the crowd.

How to unlock Bloodhound’s new skin on Prime Gaming

For Prime Gaming members, the new skin became available on Monday, September 21 and you will over a month to claim it, so don’t worry if you can’t do all of this right away.

Here’s what you have to do to unlock the skin to use in-game:

  1. Visit the Apex Legends page on the Prime Gaming website.
  2. Log in with the credentials for your Twitch account that has an active Prime subscription.
  3. Click the CLAIM NOW button above the ‘Will of the Allfather’ Bloodhound skin.
  4. When prompted, click to link your EA account with your Twitch account.
  5. Once your accounts have been linked, the item will be claimed and added to your in-game inventory the next time you log into the game.

Of course, if you’re not a Prime Gaming subscriber, you, unfortunately, won’t be able to unlock the skin. If you have an Amazon Prime subscription, however, you will be a Prime Gaming member already — so it’s well worth checking out.

Furthermore, Amazon offers 14-day free trials to their Prime service, so if you really want this cosmetic, then you can activate that trial, claim the item, and then cancel your subscription before getting charged.

We’ve seen some great skins arrive for free in Apex Legends thanks to Twitch Prime and Prime Gaming — and it doesn’t look as though that will be stopping any time soon.

Apex Legends Season 7 is on the horizon, which means a new Legend, new weapons and even a new map. So, here’s everything we know so far.

Since releasing back in February 2019, Apex Legends has cemented itself as one of the premier battle royale games around. 

Season 7 has been moved up a week, now starting on November 4, cutting your time short to complete the battle pass, if you’re still grinding through it.

The new Legend added to the roster, Horizon, will no doubt be the biggest talking point, but fans are eagerly awaiting the new map, Olympus, the vehicle, Trident, weapons, and more. So, here’s everything we know so far about what Season 7 could have in store.

Apex Legends Season 7 legend

Horizon is set to become the new Legend in Season 7, joining the roster after her teasers in the Firing Range and most recently in the Ascension trailer. However, Respawn hasn’t as of yet confirmed her abilities, but the trailer showcased a fantastic peek into her skills which will no doubt be a great way to secure the win against your enemies.

Data miners have, however, provided us with a clear indication of what Horizon’s abilities will be like, one being Gravity Lifts, which we got a teaser of in-game.

Olympus map in Apex Legends Season 7

Respawn also previously treated fans to a small look at the new map, Olympus, via an Instagram Apex Legends effect. With the release of the Ascension trailer on October 28, however, we get a broader view of this stunning map.

The map is bright and highly saturated, full of pink and red-hued trees, lush grass, and gigantic sprawling architecture that will make for a refreshing change from the already fantastic maps available to players in the past.

Olympus is a city in the sky, but it has changed drastically from how it looked before disaster hit it.

Apex Legends buffs in Season 7

In the case of Legend changes, the Respawn team regularly tweaks a few things at the start of each season – be it cutting down a cooldown on a certain ability or giving a legend a brand new passive. 

Pathfinder has already been confirmed to be getting a buff in the near future, and it makes sense that this would come in Season 7. 

Respawn have now also confirmed that Mirage and Rampart will be getting buffs in the new Season, though haven’t given any details on what exactly they will be yet.

We have also been treated to a new peak at the Trident; a new vehicle that seems to resemble a hovercraft and can take multiple passengers. This is sure to be a fantastic addition to the arsenal of options available to players in how they traverse the map and get that edge over their enemies.

Season 7 introduces clubs

The official Apex Legends website also confirms Clubs are arriving, which as of now are only described as being a way to “find like-minded players, build a community, and rise together.” It will be interesting to see how these Clubs are developed and what it will mean for those that are in them.

Apex on Steam

With the launch of Season 7, Apex Legends will become available for the first time on Steam, with even greater news: player progress will carry over if you were playing on Origin before. Playing on Steam in Season 7 will also give players special Valve-inspired gun charms. This is a fantastic addition for those who like to utilize Steam as their centralized hub for their gaming.

New weapon type: Gadgets

It has also been suggested that a new weapon type – Gadgets – are also set to appear in Apex Legends in the future.

Reliable data miner Shurgtal pointed out that there is in-game code for Gadgets and suggested that they could be things like smoke grenades that are non-combat throwable items. These haven’t appeared in-game during Season 6, and could be ripe for Season 7.

As we approach the new season, we’ll keep this post updated with any claims from reliable lakers or just flat out confirmed changes from Respawn themselves.
