The Apex Legends' Anniversary Event is almost here!

It's hard to believe it's been two years. Well, maybe not that hard to believe but that's how long Respawn Entertainment's Battle Royale has been out.

Aside from the fact that we've had Gibraltar for two years, today also marks the start of the game's Anniversary Event.
