A creative Apex Legends player has brought the Apex Games to a galaxy far, far away with this incredible Revenant skin concept.

Apex Legends and Star Wars already have a working relationship, with Pathfinder getting his very own BD-1-inspired “BP-1” skin at the end of 2019, following developer Respawn Entertainment’s release of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Despite this, fans think there is scope for a lot more collaboration between Apex Legends and the Star Wars universe, and that’s exactly what we see here.

So far, Pathfinder is the only Apex Legends character to get a Star Wars skin.

While little more has been done to combine the two worlds, that doesn’t mean it’s not possible, and it would be amazing to see Star Wars characters – or more Legends inspired by Star Wars – added to the game.

For now, though, this Revenant skin concept looks like it could be the perfect new addition for fans of both franchises.

Created by Wolfdawgartcorner, this concept brings Kaleesh warlord General Grievous into the World’s Edge, and it looks brilliantly fitting on the Synthetic Nightmare, Revenant.

The two already bare some similarities, with slender, robotic builds, so it makes sense for this skin to exist.

General Grievous’ cape on Revenant looks great, especially combined with the white and grey colorings, but it still manages to look firmly like Revenant, which would keep the character’s mains happy as they still feel distinctly familiar.

While Grievous looks a perfect fit when it comes to potential Revenant skin concepts, it definitely makes us question what else we would be interested in seeing. Gibraltar with Mace Windu’s signature purple? Loba with a fresh Princess Leia design?

The possibilities are endless, but for now, it doesn’t seem that Apex plans on doing any more Star Wars crossovers in the near future.

Apex Legends devs have rolled out fixes for frustrating Season 7 bugs that makes players face an infinite loading screen and a separate glitch causing Rampart’s turret not to stick to the Trident.

Treasure packs returned to Apex for Season 7, as a way to keep the battle pass interesting and give players something to come back and search for every single day, if you don’t get trapped, that is.

The packs have become a significant part of Apex matches since players don’t want to miss one and fall behind on completing the set and miss out on some cosmetics.

For some though, the packs have caused major issues during Season 7 though, as a bug would randomly lock them in a loading screen.

Treasure Packs were introduced in Apex Legends season 6, and now they’ve caused quite the headache.

That wasn’t all throwing players off. Rampart mains also found that, while it was advertised in the Season 7 trailer, the legend’s turret wouldn’t always stick to the new Trident vehicles.

Both of these bugs have definitely been getting under players’ skin, but the good news is Respawn have rolled out a fix for both issues that will hopefully put an end to the incoveniences.

“As an FYI, we’ve deployed a small patch to re-enable the ability to place Rampart’s turret on the Trident as well as provide a fix for players who are getting stuck on certain menu pages,” Apex wrote on Twitter on Dec. 1.

This means that once you log in following the update, treasure packs should no longer get you caught in a loop, and Rampart can once again fire Sheila atop the Trident.

Previous reports claimed that another update had been rolled out to try and fix the treasure pack glitch already, but if you’ve been on Apex’s Reddit recently you’ll see still numerous posts of people still encountering it, and a similar issue with getting stuck on the main loading screen as well.

Despite a few bumps like this along the way, Season 7 has generally been well-received by the Apex community, so hopefully, this patch takes care of these issues for good and let us get back to playing.
