Random duo in Apex Legends are now getting married and go viral

The social power of online gaming is on fine display once again, as a YouTuber who goes by ‘First Spoken Gaming’ has told the incredible story of how he found the love of his life through playing Apex Legends.

Apex is a team-oriented battle royale, that players can either run as a trio or a duo. Of course, if you don’t have a friend or two to play with, you can simply queue up with other random players.

This obviously has a mixed bag of results — sometimes you’ll get a cooperative team, who work together as a unit to win the match. Other times, you’ll get rather useless teammates who would prefer to simply play for themselves.

Apex Legends has only been out for just over a year – but it was enough time for this couple to get meet each other and get married.

But, for two lucky players, their random matchmaking experience went far better than anyone ever could have imagined.

Queueing up for a game of duos, First Spoken Gaming matched with ‘irispixels’, and says that they instantly hit it off.

“[We] became best friends,” he says in his video chronicling their relationship. “I introduced her to my family, the thing is… she lived in another state, but I knew she was all I ever wanted, and that wasn’t going to stop me.

The pair filmed their first time meeting in real-life, and that same day went back and played some Apex Legends together, this time right next to each other.

A year later, First Spoken asked her to be his wife, and she said yes.

Incredibly, the couple went viral on TikTok after he shared their story. His usual Apex Legends videos on TikTok would get a few thousand views, but the story of meeting his now-wife has already reached over half a million views, and 147,000 likes.

The couple thanked Respawn and EA for making and releasing Apex Legends, as it has essentially changed both of their lives forever.

This isn’t the first story of people meeting their significant others in-game either, although it’s maybe a sign that Apex Legends’ random matchmaking system isn’t always that toxic after all…

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

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.
