Apex Legends Season 8 Anniversary Collection Event leaks.

Data miners have been searching for information about the Season 8 Collection Event titled ‘Anniversary,’ and now a new leak has surfaced and given us a look at some new skins and a change to Heirlooms.

Apex Legends Season 7 is nearing its end, and the developers are working on multiple future seasons at the same time. We’re eager to learn what we will be seeing when Season 8 goes live after a few months.

With Fight Night behind us, we expect a plethora of brand new cosmetics, bug fixes, buffs, nerfs, and quality-of-life updates in Season 8’s Anniversary Collection Event. Now, some new leaks have given us information about a major change to Heirlooms in the event.

Mirage's Trophy Heirloom

Apex Season 8 Anniversary collection event

This information came from reliable Apex Legends leaker Shrutgal, and it suggests that completing the collection at the Anniversary Collection Event will grant you 150 Heirloom Shards, to select a previously released Heirloom of your choice.

This is a major change from previous Collection Events, where a new Heirloom would be unveiled for a Legend. The leak implies that we might not be getting a new one in the cosmetic pool, which is a bit disappointing.

However, it’s nice that you’ll be able to pick whichever Heirloom you want for yourself by spending the required amount of Apex Coins/open enough packs to complete the collection. Plus, we may also get a new one alongside that.

Apex Legends Season 8 skins

Each new Apex Legends update introduces some brand new Legend and weapons skins to battle royale. The leaker suggested that most of the Legends will receive a recolor for the Anniversary Collection Event.

There will also be new colors for all the Iron Crown legendaries, except Wattson, during the first Season 8 event and have been codenamed “Eoswar.” Since the next season is still a little far away, many of the skins are untextured. However, you can see three of them in the leak.

It’s important to keep in mind that these have not been confirmed by Respawn Entertainment so far. The leaker is reliable with a history of being accurate, but it’s worth taking this information with a grain of salt until we hear something official.

That said, this is all exciting information if it’s true. The Anniversary event will bring a plethora of exciting new content, and you’ll have the chance to pick your own Heirloom for yourself. We’ll be sure to update you once we learn more.
