The apparent next Twitch Prime skin for Apex Legends has seemingly been leaked as Mirage looks set to be given a St Patrick’s Day themed makeover for players. 

Like many other games, Apex Legends has linked up with Twitch Prime to give players the game to grab exclusive skins and other cosmetics at points throughout the game’s new seasons. 

Legends like Caustic and Pathfinder have already benefitted from new skins, but it appears as if the next one, centering around Mirage, has been leaked. Though, don’t expect the character to don any Twitch-themed Purple suits, as he looks to be gearing up for some kind of St Patrick’s Day celebrations.

Mirage is one of the only Apex Legends to not have a Twitch Prime skin.

The apparent new skin was revealed by Apex Legends leaker iLootGames who tweeted out a close-up image of Mirage – with an extremely red face – on top of a Twitch Prime background. 

Players were immediately confused by the new red face look, wondering if something had gone amiss. However, more eagle-eyed players noted that his typical jumpsuit had become green and that a pretty big four-leaved clover had appeared on him in the belt buckle region. 

There were other nods to the clover around the skin, with them adorning Mirage’s chest belt and buttons that run across both of his arms. 

The leaker eventually tweeted out an updated, and less red-faced version, of the skin a few hours later.”TBH (to be honest), I don’t think this will look too bad in-game,” they added. 

Of course, using the St Patrick’s Day theme for the Mirage skin could seemingly open up a patch for more celebrations surrounding the day of festivities. 

The Respawn development team has, like other games, used real-life holidays and days of celebration in their battle royale, so that isn’t exactly a far-fetched idea. We’ll just have to wait and see as to whether or not they have anything up their sleeve. 

Yet, it won’t be all that long of a wait as St Patrick’s Day falls on Tuesday, March 17 and the Twitch Prime skin for Mirage would likely drop around that time as well.

Respawn Entertainment have revealed their newest teaser ahead of Apex Legends Season 7, involving a black hole and a small spaceship.

With Apex Legends Season 7 dropping on November 4, fans of Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale have been eager for details about the new Legend, a potential new map, and everything else that a brand new season brings.

The devs have already dropped some hints about potentially adding ‘Olympus’ as a new map, used Horizon as a potential new Legend to give players challenges, and started talking about who will be receiving a buff with the big update.

They’ve also added a big teaser in the form of a familiar-looking ‘UFO’ floating off the coast of both World’s Edge and King’s Canyon. Now, they’ve moved on to a new teaser – a black hole.

Horzion was the latest Legend to be teased in-game.

The black hole doesn’t appear in Kings Canyon or World’s Edge, but instead, is the main image being used to hype up the new Stories from the Outlands video

The video, which is set to go live on Monday, October 26 at 3 pm GMT/11 am EDT/8 am PDT, is titled ‘Promise’ and in the image showing the black hole, a small spacecraft can also be seen in the bottom left-hand corner. 

Some players have quickly suggested that the video is all about Horizon’s official reveal as a new Legend, but it could be showing a flight to Olympus for the new map. We won’t know for sure until the video is premiered. 

Each Tales from the Outlands videos has given us more and more insight into the bigger story surrounding Apex Legends, including things like the backstory of Bloodhound and the death of Forge. 

What this one has in store still remains to be seen, but it’s sure to be packed with teasers for Season 7, and potentially even other future seasons.
