Following the launch of Apex Legends Season 7, Respawn have released a special skin called ‘Inverse Polarity’ for the new Legend, Horizon, available to those who have an active Prime Gaming subscription, formerly known as Twitch Prime.

The long-standing relationship between Apex Legends and Amazon/Twitch has produced yet another exclusive cosmetic item for players who are subscribed to Prime Gaming.

With the game’s seventh season, Ascension, now live, along with the new character named Horizon, it’s the perfect time for Respawn to roll out an outfit skin that’ll get players excited.

The skin is called Inverse Polarity, and it equips Horizon with an outfit that’s designed like a skeleton. There are a couple of cool-looking nuances as well, such as the teal trimming and wristguards that follow the same color scheme of Season 7.

How to claim the skin for free with Prime Gaming

If you have an active Prime Gaming subscription, you can add this cosmetic to your Apex Legends inventory by completing the following simple steps:

  1. Visit the Apex Legends Prime Gaming website
  2. Click ‘Claim Now’ above the Horizon Inverse Polarity skin
  3. Once prompted, sign in with your account credentials. If your EA account is not linked with Twitch, you will be redirected to the EA website to sign in and link the two accounts.
  4. Once you’ve logged in and linked your accounts, claim the skin

If all of these steps are completed correctly, the item will be added to your Apex account and show up the next time you log in.

Horizon is the latest legend to join the Apex Legends roster.

Horizon has already become one of the most popular legends to pick. Apex Legends players often need to engage in a battle of reflexes to see who can lock her in first.

Part of the reason is that she’s the newest legend on the roster. However, it’s also because she boasts an incredible set of abilities that are very fun to use.

Now, with the Inverse Polarity skin readily available to anyone with Prime Gaming, Horizon’s popularity is going to skyrocket even more.

After all, the only thing better than an astrophysicist-themed legend is one that is also dressed like a skeleton.

Respawn Senior Game Designer wants more “non-BR” modes in Apex Legends

Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Z. Klein is a big fan of Apex Legends’ non-BR modes, and would want the studio to experiment with a few more concepts after seeing how successful the Winter Express has been.

Admittedly, Klein isn’t a part of the game modes team at Respawn, but the senior developer gave his preference on which direction the battle royale could take from here. Previous modes like Hunt and the Winter Express tweaked Apex’s typical formula, giving players something different to get their hands on.

The team at Respawn has proven they can make modes that don’t feed into the normal BR format but still create products that resonate with their players. Klein would like to see more of this out of Apex in the following seasons, though has said there’s not much to reveal on that front as of yet.

“I really want us to try more non-BR things; I think Winter Express was a wonderful proof of concept that Apex can be super fun in non-BR modes,” he said on Reddit. “I think something Mario Party-like, like (League of Legends’) Nexus Blitz, would probably be a bit too much for a game like Apex, but there are LOTS of cool things we could do.”

He isn’t wrong on that final point. Aside from being a solid battle royale in the bustling genre, Apex Legends has something unique that not many games can boast about: it’s incredible characters.

Respawn have injected a vast amount of lore and personality into their cast of 15 Legends, meaning they can produce nearly any mode they want without struggling with how it logistically fits into the game.

We kind of got a taste of that type of ingenuity with the Fight or Fright Collection Event, that showed Pathfinder teleporting into a night version of Kings Canyon which introduced the Shadowfall mode.

Now that there’s vehicles and loads of new gameplay mechanics in Season 7, non-BR modes like races, new PvE concepts, and more can be a frontrunner for possibilities to explore.

Like Klein said, there isn’t anything Respawn are ready to announce for Apex Legends as of yet, but players have loads of content to hold them over until they do.
