An Apex Legends anniversary event will take place in the game's eighth season, according to prolific data miner Shrugtal.

The anniversary event will follow the Collection Event blueprint with one major divergence, per Shrugtal: Rather than design a new Heirloom for players to earn by completing the collection, Respawn Entertainment will award 150 Heirloom shards to players who complete the collection. This will allow them to purchase any one pre-existing Heirloom.

Shrugtal did not provide any further details about the anniversary event.

Apex Legends is currently in the midst of the Fight Night Collection Event, a Pathfinder-focused event that introduced the robot's Heirloom. Season 7 continues around the event, and is expected to last until Jan. 20. Season 8 will likely kick off on or around that date.
