xQc isn’t impressed with Apex Legends’ Founder’s Pack

Respawn Entertainment released their new, free-to-play battle royale game Apex Legends on Febraury 4, so streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel decided to try the new game out.

xQc started downloading the game just after the reveal trailer at 12 PM PST, and decided to watch some gameplay with viewers while waiting.

While watching a YouTube video of Apex gameplay, xQc decided to take the opportunity to pose for a thumbnail to make it easier on the people who make his YouTube videos.

Eventually the streamer loaded up the game to check out the new title’s offerings, but was immediately disappointed in what he got out of the $40 Founder’s Edition.

“Founder’s skin, ooh, that’s terrible,” xQc remarked. “Founder’s skin, that’s horrid.”

“Is this real?” The streamer asked as he looked for more. “Well there goes my $40. Holy shit, GabeN would be proud.”

After finally making it into a game, xQc seemed to have a pretty good time, even if he wasn’t getting one win after another.

Only xQc knows how long he’ll be playing Apex for, but he said he was pretty excited to be around for the launch of the game.

Apex Legends is free to play and was released on February 4 for Playstation 4, Xbox One and on PC in the Origin store.

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.
