Apex Legends Season 8 is nearing its end, but there is still one last event coming to the game before Season 9 arrives. The War Games event arrives on April 13 and will last two weeks until April 27. While War Games isn't a Collection Event, it brings a number of skins to the game as well as a variety of limited-time modes.
War Games does not bring any new map changes or points of interest, nor does it contain a new heirloom. It is mostly a cosmetic event, giving players a large number of skins to collect over the final two weeks of Season 8. There are also five new LTDs that will each be available on different days during the event.
