Apex Legends has only been live for about a month, but fans are already hard at work coming up with awesome skin ideas for their favorite legends.

More than 50 million players just 28 days after release simply means there are over 50 million Apex Legends fans looking for more content for the new hit game.

Respawn Entertainment, publishers of Apex, have put out a one year roadmap for the game, but so far there’s been no explicit mention of any new skins.

That hasn’t stopped fans from coming up with inspiration for new skins, drawing ideas from almost everywhere.

One user on Reddit named Varrith suggested a Bloodhound skin based on the popular anime Desert Punk.

Varrith’s idea would fit Bloodhound pretty well, it even has the legends recognizable conical helmet already in the illustration.

Even though we have no news on new skins yet, games like Apex Legends and Fortnite, usually come out with new skins before too long.

Popular Twitch streamer Michael ‘shroud‘ Grzesiek recently teased a bunch of new content coming to Apex, and assured fans all they would have to do is wait.

Whatever new skins make it into Apex, it’s clear fans are plenty hungry for any and all new content that will be coming to the game.

Apex Legends Season 7 start date moved forward one week

After an initial leak and then a change with the Season 6 Battle Pass, it appears that the start date for Apex Legends’ Season 7 start date has been moved up by a week.

Although not officially announced yet by Respawn Entertainment, all indications seem to be pointing to Season 7 kicking off a week earlier than had been originally scheduled.

According to the in-game Battle Pass menu, S7 was initially set to start on November 10, which made sense given the length of a standard Apex Legends season. Now, prominent data-miner ‘Shrugtal’ leaked updated game code that showed the date being changed to November 4.

Following Shrugtal’s tweet, Apex’s Battle Pass menu was adjusted to show that, as of October 21, there were only 14 days left remaining in S6, rather than the 21 that had been displayed earlier the same day.

This all but confirms the date change, which Respawn have not yet explained, although it could be because S6 had been delayed by a week, so this could be the devs wanting to keep subsequent seasons right on schedule rather than all of them also starting a week later.

While this change fixes that issue and also means Apex fans will be able to access Season 7’s content a week earlier, at the same time, they’ll have a week less than originally anticipated to experience everything that Season 6 has to offer.

It makes more sense now that the annual Fight or Fright Halloween-themed event, which starts October 22, is wrapping up on November 3, just in time for the new season to launch.

This change also helps to explain why Respawn have been so teaser-happy recently, putting out voice recordings almost on a daily basis hinting at what’s coming to their prized battle royale in its seventh chapter.

While we don’t know what these recordings mean just yet, since they all seem to be pieces of a larger puzzle, there’s no doubt that the Apex community is getting excited again over that familiarly awesome feeling of new content on the way.

S7 is set to introduce a brand new legend named Horizon and is also expected to add a new machine gun called Predator, although the latter has yet to be confirmed. Of course, players will also have a new battle pass full of content to jump into.
