Respawn Entertainment have released Apex Legends Octane Edition, the third special edition version of their popular battle royale, which includes some awesome-looking cosmetic items and rewards.

One of the most important aspects of Apex Legends is that it has always been free to play. However, for the old school collectors out there who prefer hard copies of games, Respawn released a Bloodhound and Lifeline version.

On February 18, they launched Octane Edition, centered around the Legend that was first introduced back in Season 1. Update: There is no hard copy of the Octane Edition, but it will be available at retailers, as a digital download.

Respawn EntertainmentThe Apex Legends Octane Edition includes five items in total – four cosmetics and 1,000 Apex Coins.

“You’re either predator or prey,” the description reads. “Death comes at you fast in the Arena. Since your teeth into the Octane Edition, packed full of juicy collectibles to keep you looking energized and more venomous than your competition.”

What’s in the Apex Legends Octane Edition?

This version of the game features five items in total, including four cosmetics and 1,000 Apex Coins.

  • Legendary Arachnoid Rush Octane skin
  • Legendary Arachnoid Charge Rifle skin
  • Exclusive Violet Widow Gun Charm
  • Exclusive Venomous Badge
  • 1,000 Apex Coins

How much is the Apex Legends Octane Edition?

This bundled version of the game is available for $19.99 on the Microsoft Store (Xbox One), PlayStation Store (PS4), and Origin store (PC).

What other Apex Legends special editions are there?

This is the third special version of Apex Legends, following the Bloodhound and Lifeline Editions that were released back in September. Like the Octane version, both of those versions also included five items in total – four cosmetics and 1,000 Apex Coins – each costing the same price of $19.99.

Respawn EntertainmentReleased in September, the Bloodhound and Lifeline Editions were the first two Apex Legends special edition bundles sold.

Needless to say, because the cosmetic items in these bundles sit behind a paywall, there’s probably not going to be too many players who can show them off in-game.

For those are into having exclusive skins and camos, it’s probably worth dropping 20 bucks on one or more of these bundles, especially since you get a nice amount of Apex Coins to spend on other stuff.

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.
