To celebrate Apex Legends' 4th anniversary and its success, Respawn Entertainment has planned to launch an Anniversary Collection Event on February 22, 2023.
Apex Legends Season 15 has received mixed reviews from players, with many stating that the content was lacking. Despite the release of the Broken Moon map and a new legend named Catalyst, the player count has remained low throughout the season.
The decline in player count at the beginning of the season can be attributed to the launch of competing games such as Overwatch 2 and Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0. However, the number of players has been gradually increasing as the season comes to a close.
It remains uncertain what specifically caused the recent increase in player count for Apex Legends, whether it be the new SBMM, the three consecutive Collection Events or other factors. Regardless, it is likely that the positive feedback and coverage of the game online is drawing players back to the game.
Data miners often discover exciting new information in game files following a major update. This was the case following the launch of the Season 16 Spellbound Collection Event, as data miners like SWL and Senos uncovered two lines of code that appear to be promising.
While Respawn has not yet confirmed it, it is likely that they will introduce a new Heirloom modification in the upcoming Anniversary Collection Event. However, it should be noted that the possibility of a Wraith Heirloom recolor has not been confirmed and should be treated with caution.
During the Apex Legends 2023 anniversary event, Respawn will distribute two special thematic packs as a giveaway. These packs will be centered around the characters Ash and Crypto, and will likely include cosmetic items such as skins, weapon skins, finishers, and other items related to the characters.
