share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

It looks like Apex Legends is ditching the festivities and going in a different direction this Holo-Day period. The Raiders Collection Event might be re-introducing the Winter Express LTM, but there's no sign of Christmas skins in the store and all the new cosmetics are pirate-themed. The Raiders Collection Event update is also bringing a new set of changes to Apex Legends - here are the Patch Notes.

LATEST - What time does the update come out?

Respawn Entertainment isn't offering any sort of preloading for this event and that means we're going to have to wait until the following times for the update - which is also when the Raiders Collection Event is due to start.

  • 09:00 PST - December 7th
  • 12:00 EST - December 7th
  • 17:00 GMT - December 7th

It's worth taking all of this with a little pinch of salt, as it's technically unconfirmed - however, Apex Legends follows a schedule and almost every update arrives at this time. Here's a little teaser of what's to come:

Raiders Event Patch Notes - What we know

This time, the Patch Notes are actually quite tame. A few changes have been made, but it's hardly going to be as impactful an update as what we saw at the start of Season 11. That being said, it's still an update worth checking out.

There's going to be a Reward Track and 24 new cosmetic items up for grabs - collect them all and you'll be able to get your hands on Wattson's Heirloom. Respawn Entertainment finally did it! Here's what else is on the way...
