Respawn Entertainment and EA will soon be hosting an Apex Legends Raiders Collect Event in the game that mixes pirates and wintry-themed Raiders events together. Apex Legends players are already having the time of their lives with a new season in the form of Season 11 as well as a brand new map and Legend. Now, there’s more to look forward to as winter sets on the world’s edge.
EA and Respawn announced the Apex Legends Raiders Collect Event for players in a recent blog post. Apex Legends Raiders Collect Event will run from December 7 through December 21. While the start time has been mentioned, we can expect the Raiders Collect Event to start at around 1 p.m. Eastern based on previous in-game events. The developers also dropped a fresh new trailer for the event following its official reveal. Have a look at the trailer below.
The brief yet insightful trailer reveals a ton of new weapons and character skins for in-game Legends like Wattson, Pathfinder, and many more things. Saving the best for the last, the trailer concludes with a slight look at Wattson’s much-desired Heirloom. The famous Winter Express game mode is also making a return for Apex Legends Raiders Collect Event. In this LTM game mode, you and two of your teammates defend the train on World’s Edge. However, you can choose your loadout before jumping into a fight; this adds a fresh layer to the mode as well as presents players with more choices.
