Apex Legends Anniversary Collection Event Mirage Voyage POI returns

The popular POI known as Mirage Voyage has made its return in Apex Legends with a new name “Mirage A’trois.” It has been revamped as an “interactive loot party” that features a new dance.

The Mirage A’trois POI will be present across all of the Battle Royale maps in Apex Legends throughout the entirety of Season 16. All maps will be decorated with big balloons of the Legends during the Collection Event.

Apex Legends Anniversary Collection Event Heirloom Shards

Instead of an Heirloom, Mythic skin, or reactive weapon skin, players will actually have the chance to get Heirloom Shards from the Apex Legends Anniversary Collection Event for 2023, allowing them to pick a Mythic rarity item of their choice.

Players will be able to get their hands on up to 150 heirloom shards by buying all the items in the Apex Legends Anniversary Collection Event. There will be a community-created reward track as well.

This has happened previously, as this was also the prize of the Apex Legends Anniversary Collection Event in 2021 after collecting all 24 cosmetic items.
