Apex Legends Leaked Event Trailer Highlights a High-Octane Takeover of the Town

Is that a... skate park?

Apex Legends' new event launches today, bringing a solo mode to the traditionally three-person squad battle royale. But it looks like more changes are coming to the world of Apex too, as well as a whole host of new cosmetics.

The trailer for the event leaked a little early on, of all things, Nvidia's Middle East Twitter account. It first shows off the solo mode, before running down all the cosmetics and then ending on Octane's takeover of a section of the map.

It looks like Octane is taking over part of the Apex map to convert it into his own extreme sports park, complete with ramps and rings of fire. It seems like you can even slide down the ramps and launch off them, bringing some new movement possibilities. I get some serious shades of Titanfall from this.

Among the new legendary skins coming to Apex Legends in the update, it looks like Bloodhound is getting their first heirloom. A traditionally extremely rare cosmetic that currently only Wraith has, the end of the trailer shows Bloodhound with a hatchet of some sort, indicating they are the next one to receive an heirloom cosmetic.

Back at E3 2019, we asked the Apex Legends developers whether anyone else would ever get an heirloom cosmetic, and the answer was that while they weren't talking specifics, Wraith's knife was "not intended to be the only heirloom ever." Good news for all the Bloodhound mains out there looking for that extra bit of cosmetic flair.

Apex Legends' update goes live today, so you'll be able to start hunting for all the new cosmetics when it hits the servers. Be sure to check out our guides section to keep up with all things Apex in the new season.
