Apex Legends 'Anniversary' Collection Event LEAKS: Release Date, Skins, Rewards, Trailer And Everything We Know So Far

Collectors at the ready

Apex Legends next Collection Event will coincide with the anniversary of its creation!

The popular Battle Royale game will be 2 years old on the 4th of February 2021.

It will arrive shortly after the release of Season 8.

The last Collection Event, Fight Night, added plenty of files to the game and has given us a look at what to expect

Release Date

No date is confirmed for the Anniversary Collection Event, but we're expecting it to arrive on the 4th February.

The 4th February is the Anniversary of Apex Legends' creation; so it makes sense for this to be when it will arrive.

However, it seems very soon after the launch of the new season - which is scheduled to be the 1st February.

It could be the event is delayed slightly to allow some breathing room.


The reward for completing the collection not be a new Heirloom, rather you will receive 150 Heirloom Shards to purchase an existing one of your choosing.

All Legends, other than the most recent three, are getting an Anniversary Recolor of an event/BP legendary skin.

All the Iron Crown legendaries, apart from Wattson, will get recolors in the first Season 8 event.

Wattson appears to be getting some form of recolor.
