The Apex Legends x Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth event start date is just around the corner with at least three iconic crossover skins.
Respawn Entertainment shocked everyone when they revealed an upcoming Apex Legends x Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth collaboration at The Game Awards back in December. Although most fans were hoping for a Titanfall 3 announcement, the crossover coming to Apex Legends was met with an overwhelmingly positive reception. With the release date of Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth still over a month away, players can first celebrate the upcoming title in Respawn Entertainment's Battle Royale.
So, when does the Apex Legends x Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth event go live?
Apex Legends x Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth Event Start Date
The Apex Legends x Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth event starts on Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2024. Although the exact time the event launches has not been confirmed yet, we expect the collaboration to kick off at 1 p.m. ET, the same time as previous Apex Legends Collection Events.
The start of the crossover comes just one week after the conclusion of the Uprising Collection Event in Apex Legends. The first Collection Event of Season 19 offered 24 limited-time cosmetics, including the highly anticipated Loba Prestige skin.
We might not know exactly what cosmetics are coming in the Apex Legends x Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth event, but the trailer does hint at the following three skins:
- Crypto as Cloud Strife
- Wraith as Vincent Valentine
- Horizon as Aerith Gainsborough
Expect more Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth-themed skins and cosmetics coming to Apex Legends throughout the event.
