February is shaping up to be a busy, and rewarding, month for Apex Legends players. The battle royale, that also has an arena mode now, is launching into its next season on February 8. Following that, players will be able to get three batches of rewards for just logging into the game.
Let’s start at the beginning. Season 12 of Apex Legends is titled Defiance. It focuses on the slightly insane, but possibly good-intentioned Mad Maggie. She will be joining the roster of Legends for the Apex Games. If you missed her Stories from the Outlands episode, you can check it out here. It shines a new light on her…let’s call it passion.
Apex Legends third anniversary rewards
The major rewards in the anniversary celebration are three of the Legends. Starting from the launch of Defiance, you will be able to unlock a new Legend per week for three weeks – for free. The Legends are Octane, Wattson, and Valkyrie. Respawn Entertainment hasn’t specified exactly how you will unlock rewards. However, it looks like they may be earned simply by logging into Apex Legends.
Week one will run from February 8 to 15. As you’d expect from a speedster, Octane will be coming in first. Along with the Legend, you will also receive three Thematic Packs. Wattson will be available during the second week, which runs from February 15 to 22. Again, you will also earn three Thematic Packs. Finally, Valkyrie will be unlockable from February 22 to March 1. She will also come with the usual three Thematic Packs. Plus, you’ll get a Legendary Pack in this final week.
Unfortunately, there’s no bonus reward for having the Legends unlocked already. However, you will still receive the Thematic Packs and the Legendary Pack. Thematic Packs are usually tied to a Legend, event, or item. Presumably, the third anniversary Thematic Packs will drop items based on the Legend available during that week.
