Respawn Entertainment has finally released our first look at what to expect from the Season 11 Collection Event for Apex Legends and it looks great! We were expecting another bout of Mirage's Holo-Day Bash and it looks like we're getting an event called "Raiders" instead! It's been confirmed that the Winter Express LTM is returning and here's everything else you need to know.
UPDATE - Season 11 Collection Event confirmed!
Apex Legends' next Season 11 Collection Event is going to be... Raiders!
As you can see in the Tweet below, we're going to be getting a Collection Event that's all about pirates this Christmas - not another Holo-Day Bash. It's also finally going to introduce Wattson's Heirloom - which is an in-game item a lot of players have been wanting for a long time.
We don't know all the details just yet, but we do know the following:
- Raiders is due to start on December 7th and should run until December 21st;
- There's going to be 24 cosmetics to unlock which will, in turn, unlock Wattson's Heirloom item;
- The Winter Express LTM - a mode that pits three squads against one another on a moving train - is returning during the Raiders Collection Event;
Expect more information from Respawn Entertainment before the Season 11 Collection Event start date - December 7th.
COLLECTION EVENT - When should we see this?
At the moment, it's difficult to say. The Season 11 Collection Event should really begin around the middle of December - based on when Season 11 started. However, Apex Legends' festive Holo-Day Bash event is also usually due around this period. We don't know if they're going to merge the two, but that might be what we're looking at.
Either way, Shrugtal - a notable data miner and leaker - has suggested that we could see a Collection Event trailer drop today.
They comment that it would be unlikely, because of the timings, but this is the next expected Apex Legends event. We'll just have to wait and see... The Trailer should go live around the following times - either way:
- 09:00 PST
- 12:00 EST
- 17:00 GMT
WATTSON HEIRLOOM - It's time, isn't it?
We know this might seem like old news, but Wattson STILL doesn't have an Heirloom in Apex Legends. When you consider the fact that Rampart got hers last, it doesn't make a lot of sense. Wattson was added to Apex Legends in Season 2 and it's time for her to see some love.
The Wattson rework that was introduced in the Season 11 update was a good start, but she's due an Heirloom too, right? Months ago, leaks appears that seemed to suggest that Wattson's Heirloom was being worked on - so, we think we could be seeing it next.
From what we can see, it looks like it's going to be some sort of handheld scanning device. Leakers also suggest that there might be some sort of Tamagotchi-type interaction with the Heirloom, making it one of the more complex ones on offer.
We should learn more from PlayApex soon - we just hope it's what we want to see.
