The Apex Legends Anime event begins with the launch of the Awakening Collection this week on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
New skins have already been shared by the development team, and while the collection’s official name (Awakening) has been confirmed, many see it as a group of designs heavily inspired by Anime.
Away from the new skins, Respawn developers have also confirmed that a new town takeover will include a notable map change to Olympus, along with a number of other behind-the-scenes changes.
And fans have also been warned that Control Mode will be back in the mix, but only for the few weeks Awakening will be available in-game.
