Prime Gaming is giving away the Queen of Hearts skin for Wraith in Apex Legends during the month of January 2021. Here’s everything you need to know to get your hands on the new Twitch skin.

Although Apex Legends’ Fight Night update has just been released, bringing a ton of new skins along with it, Prime Gaming subscribers who play the game will have another separate cosmetic that they’ll be able to secure during the month of January 2021.

Prime Gaming (previously known as Twitch Prime), has a brand-new Wraith skin, called the Queen of Hearts, and it’s now available to subscribers.

The skin itself is pretty interesting, with the Legend dressed up as the in a similar style to, as one might expect, a queen of hearts playing card. Given how popular she is within the Apex community, it’s nice to get a brand-new skin for her, especially one that’s exclusive.

Of course, as with other Prime Gaming skins, this one is only available subscribers of the platform and won’t be available for other players in the foreseeable future. Here’s how you can make sure that you’ll receive your skin on January 14, 2021, when it releases.

Subscribers will have to follow some basic instructions if they want to get their hands on the special Wraith skin.

As with every other Twitch Prime/Prime Gaming reward, subscribers will have to follow some instructions and make sure they’re all ready to get the skin.

It’s worth reminding folks that if they are an Amazon Prime subscriber, they’re already Prime Gaming subscribers, so you don’t have to sign up for a separate service.

  1. Visit the Prime Gaming website and log in
  2. Go the Apex Legends section
  3. Click “Claim Now” on the Queen of Hearts skin when it goes live
  4. Sign in and link your EA account if you haven’t already
  5. The skin should then appear in your in-game inventory

The last skin Prime Gaming had access to was one for Horizon, which was available up until Dec 28. At the time of writing, we have no idea how long subscribers will have to get their hands on this Wraith skin, but once we do, we’ll update this piece to reflect that new information.

Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage make surprise return to Apex Legends

In an impromptu update, Respawn Entertainment have delighted Apex Legends fans by bringing back both the Kings Canyon map and the Mirage Voyage point of interest for a limited time.

The Apex community lit up with a blend of surprise and joy when users logged onto the popular battle royale and found out that Kings Canyon was reintroduced to the game’s playlist options. As an added bonus, the game’s most infamous party boat, the Mirage Voyage, also spontaneously re-emerged as a landing spot.

A common emotional accompaniment to surprise is confusion and this geographical return was not lacking in either, according to Twitter reactions. The option to play on Kings Row was originally speculated to be a mistake because the playlist choice was only showing up for some players and mysteriously appearing then disappearing for others. 

But, following an official announcement from the Apex Legends Twitter account, it’s confirmed that the returns of Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage are no mistake. In fact, they will be around for a full week.

Echoing the enthusiasm of their fans, Apex’s social media account delivered the news with a simple nod to jubilations: “It’s party time.”

And, as fans have been discovering in the brief time the map’s been made available, there are some tweaks to Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage this time around — including some notable teasers and easter eggs. 

In one such piece of subtle content, there is a voicemail left to Mirage by his mother, Evelyn Witt, which can be found on a phone or tablet device that’s been left on one of the boat’s green couches. While it’s not a groundbreaking piece of lore, it does add to the game’s longrunning storylines.

This marks the first time since August 2020 that Mirage Voyage is available to contest in Apex Legends and the first time ever that it has sailed into Kings Canyon instead of World’s Edge. This blend of returns is both a chance for nostalgia and for content overlap.

Although the new playlist option will only be available until January 21, fans will be curious to know if this means Respawn intends on continuing to spontaneously bring back limited playlist offerings in the future.
