Apex Legends Imperial Guard Collection Event Announced: Dates, Playlist, Heirloom Revealed

Respawn Entertainment

Respawn have announced the next Apex Legends Collection Event — Imperial Guard. Here's everything you need to know.

After being hinted at by leaks for the past few weeks, Respawn have revealed the Imperial Guard Collection Event for Apex Legends, coming this season. The event will feature a variety of new skins for characters and weapons, as well as Mixtape: a playlist which permanently features a rotation of Team Deathmatch, Control and Gun Run. Mixtape modes will also be added to Custom Matches.

With every Collection Event, there's always the anticipation of the next Heirloom, and this time around players can get their hands on Wraith's new “Hope’s Dawn” Heirloom. This new version of Wraith’s Kunai Heirloom, Hope’s Dawn comes with new details and changes.

The Hope’s Dawn Kunai set will give players access to new animations, VFX, color variations, a new Mythic emote, and a Mythic Banner.

In addition to the Heirloom, players can unlock 24 limited-time cosmetics, with Legendary skins for Wraith, Gibraltar, Loba, and more. All 24 items will be available in exchange for Apex Coins or Crafting Metals and in Imperial Guard Collection Event Apex Packs. Respawn has also announced that all Crafting Metal prices for event items will be reduced by 50%, so players can get their hands on cosmetics sooner.

So, when does the Imperial Guard Collection Event begin?
