Apex Legends and Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth get a Crossover Event!
The 2023 Game Awards brought us a lot more than prizes, with amazing performances from some of our favorite video game voice actors and even a few announcements from big-time developers! The biggest announcement yet, however, was unexpected, to say the least. If you thought Apex Legends was already firing on all cylinders, get ready to have your mind blown. Respawn Entertainment is joining forces with the biggest JRPG in history. That’s right, our favorite battle royale is crossing over with none other than Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth! Square Enix's smash-hit reboot is diving headfirst into the adrenaline-packed world of Apex Legends, and we are here for it.
Now, we've seen Apex Legends dip its toes into crossover waters before when Post Malone was featured in game, with nods to Portal, Half-Life, and even a sprinkle of anime magic during the Gaiden Event. But this latest bombshell about Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth takes the cake, the icing, and maybe even the whole bakery. Respawn Entertainment sure knows how to boost our adrenaline levels!
The Game Awards dropped the bomb that Apex Legends and Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth are joining forces on December 8. The reveal came with an announcement trailer that hit us right in the feels. Three new skins are dropping into our laps like loot from the heavens, featuring our beloved Legends transformed into characters from Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth.
Crypto is rocking a Cloud Strife skin, Horizon is getting an Aerith skin, and Wraith is getting the fan-favorite Vincent Valentine look. If that doesn't make you want to dive back into the Apex Games, we don't know what will.
Mark your calendars, Legends, because the Apex Legends x Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth exclusive event kicks off on January 9, 2024. Yeah, we've got a countdown going, too! The Games Awards threw in a cinematic for good measure, giving us a peek into the colliding worlds. Horizon and Wraith inspecting Cloud's iconic Buster Sword stuck in the ground—talk about epic!
The trailer teased Crypto yanking that sword out, leaving us on the edge of our seats wondering: Can we wield this beast in-game? The possibilities are as endless as our excitement. Are Respawn boosting our melee weapons with a Buster Sword in Apex? Sign us up!
So far, here’s what we know about the loot: The Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth cosmetics are dropping into our laps during the crossover event, but how is still a bit of a mystery.
Will there be a prize tracker leading us on a quest for these themed treasures? Or are we diving deep into our pockets for some Apex Coins in the in-game shop? We’re already expecting a battle pass, but an RPG-style quest would be a nice touch.
Keep those eyes peeled for more details from the developers. We're all in this together to know exactly how we'll get our hands on these legendary Final Fantasy skins.
Get ready to blend Final Fantasy magic with the pulse-pounding action of Apex Legends. January 9, 2024: circle it on your calendar, set an alarm, do whatever you need to do. The Games Awards gave us a taste, and now we're hungry for more. Apex Legends x Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth—let the crossover games begin!
