It's almost time, Legends! Apex Legends' next Collection Event isn't as festive as we'd expect, offering a strange mash-up of holiday content and pirate-themed cosmetics, and it's almost live. Here's everything you need to know about what date the Raiders Collection Event should start...

UPDATE - What time are we expecting it?

Respawn Entertainment hasn't specified when exactly the Raiders Collection Event is set to begin - however, we can look at previous Collection Events to get a sense of when to expect the content to go live in-game. Respawn Entertainment's updates usually follow a schedule...

With this in mind, the Raiders Collection Event should start at the following times:

  • 10:00 December 7th - PST
  • 13:00 December 7th - EST
  • 17:00 December 7th - GMT

It's worth taking this with a pinch of salt, but this should be what to expect going forwards - unless otherwise specified on social media by Respawn Entertainment.

When does the Raiders Collection Event begin?

The Raiders Collection Event is due to start on December 7th - we haven't had a specific time confirmed yet, but it should drop at the same time as every other Apex Legends event in the past. You can check out the announcement trailer for the event below:

As you can see above, there's going to be a selection of Pirate-themed cosmetic items added alongside a Wattson Heirloom item and the Winter Express LTM.
