Respawn Entertainment has announced that Good as Gold, a brand new entry in the Apex Legends: Stories from the Outlands series of shorts will premiere on Monday, January 18, 2021. 

Apex Legends is only weeks away from its eighth season, scheduled to launch on February 2, which means it’s time for the developers to tease the new Legend who will join the roster.

Respawn Entertainment has confirmed the next entry in the Stories from the Outlands, titled Good as Gold.

Fuse’s Stories from the Outlands

Respawn has confirmed the latest Stories from the Outlands will go live on January 18 at 8AM PT.

The episode should give us some background on Fuse, the next character set to join Apex’s roster of legends. Hopefully, the video will give us an idea of why he’s joining the Apex games and which other legends he’s connected to in the lore.

You can watch the episode below when it’s live:

For international timezones, the video will go live at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET / 4 PM GMT / 5pm CEST / 1AM JST.

We know that the video will be 4:19 long, which isn’t quite as long as some previous episodes, but still leaves plenty of time for a lot of lore to be revealed. Horizon’s Promise episode was very similar in length, at 4:13.

Stories from the Outlands: Good as Gold

The short begins with a flashback section of Fuse and his childhood friend finding a golden grenade held by the skeleton of an old Salvo freedom fighter. By the looks of it, this represents a pact between the two that symbolizes their destiny to become freedom fighters and their war against Syndicate.

The flashback continues, showing the pair growing up as freedom fighters and taking on members of Syndicate. We’re then transported into real-time where Fuse’s friend finds out that Salvo has joined Syndicate and Fuse intends to join the Apex games.

This leads to an altercation between the two where the pin is pulled out of the golden grenade, resulting in Fuse losing his right arm. The short ends with Fuse leaving the burning building and his friend behind, seemingly heading to the Apex games to compete.

This sets up an interesting backstory for Apex’s latest Legend and his motives for joining the Apex Games. Luckily for us, there isn’t too long to wait as Season 8 goes live on February 2.

Apex Legends Season 8 event, Chaos Theory, is expected to release in March, and will launch alongside the release of Apex on Nintendo Switch. Here’s everything we know about the event so far, including release date, leaks, rumors and even an heirloom to be expected.

When is Chaos Theory event in Apex Legends?

The event is expected to start on March 11, just a couple days after the Switch release for Apex Legends, on March 9. This will follow the conclusion of the Anniversary Collection event on March 3, after it was extended by a week.

Events typically last between two and three weeks, so expect a similar time frame for Chaos Theory.

Despite no official announcement yet, we know it will be called Chaos Theory after Target revealed it early on their Nintendo Switch Champion Edition listing.

Caustic Town Takeover

Respawn have been teasing the next Town Takeover, expected to be for Caustic, in-game. The first teaser dropped on February 23.

The Town Takeover will be at Water Treatment on Kings Canyon, but we will have to wait until Respawn do a full reveal to see what it looks like.

Bangalore Heirloom

Bangalore is the only original launch Legend who hasn’t received an heirloom yet, and all signs point to her being next up.

Numerous leaks from data miners have found what Bangalore’s heirloom will be, so you can check it out here if you don’t mind the spoiler.

The Anniversary Collection event provides the opportunity to get 150 heirloom shards, so if you’re a Bangalore main, you might want to hold on to those shards for a bit.

Chaos Theory event skins

We don’t yet have any images of the skins coming in the event, but data miners have narrowed down which Legends we can expect some new cosmetics for specifically.

Thanks to reliable leaker Biast12, the expected event skins are for the following characters:

Legendary:

  • Caustic
  • Crypto
  • Gibraltar
  • Loba
  • Rampart
  • Revenant
  • Wattson

Epic:

  • Octane
  • Caustic
  • Wattson

There are also files for numerous recolors for past event skins, but we’re not sure yet if these will be available during the Chaos Theory event, or separately.


That’s everything we know so far about the Chaos Theory event, though there are still a lot of details unknown. We’ll keep you updated on everything right here, and on Twitter @TitanfallBlog.
