Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment are ringing in the new year with a crazy event for Apex Legends. Scheduled to go live on January 14 and run through January 28, the Grand Soiree Arcade Event will introduce a massive seven new game types for players to enjoy, alongside plenty of new cosmetics to look good while doing so. Seven new character skins will be earnable in-game throughout the event duration, be that via crafting or randomized Apex Packs, as well as being purchasable for $5 as they rotate in and out of the premium cosmetics store. Check out our Apex Legends Grand Soiree Arcade Event all cosmetics list to see what new loot might take your fancy.
All Apex Legends Grand Soiree Arcade character skins
Seven new “Art Deco-inspired” skins are set to be introduced in the latest Apex Legends event, six of which are Legendary. Mirage is the only character to get a lesser skin, which is likely due to the fact it should be relatively easy to earn in-game by completing Soiree challenges and progressing through the event prize track.
Mirage Grand Soiree Arcade skin
By completing event challenges and earning 750 points, players will be granted a new Mirage skin. It doesn’t make any dramatic alterations to the trickster’s base outfit, rather just richly recoloring it to look far more snazzy and expensive.
Pathfinder Grand Soiree Arcade skin
Sporting a mostly black and gold tuxedo-like ensemble, Apex Legends‘ personable robot has never looked so dapper. Little touches like the bowtie and metal mustache really set the outfit off.
Bangalore Grand Soiree Arcade skin
Adopting the same color scheme as Pathfinder, this no-nonsense Legend has shaved her head and donned an elegant headpiece. It’s almost like a modern take on Cleopatra.
Bloodhound Grand Soiree Arcade skin
Maintaining the trademark gold feathering on his helmet, the striking accent is now incorporated into much more of the outfit beyond that. Primarily a minty green with intricate patterning, this Art Deco design will help you to stand out from the crowd.
Octane Grand Soiree Arcade skin
Apex Legends‘ resident adrenaline junkie could be considered a ticking time bomb, which makes his steampunk outfit more appropriate than most. A large clock on the chest takes center stage, while smaller cogs and pocket watches tie the whole thing together.
Caustic Grand Soiree Arcade skin
Caustic’s toxic battle tactics arguably make him a villain already, but this deep purple robe with brown leather accents makes him appear as though he’s a dark magic-wielding mage. Dark facial markings help to achieve the effect, too.
Crypto Grand Soiree Arcade skin
The newest addition to the Apex Legends character roster has the freshest skin to match. Seemingly ditching the classic Art Deco design philosophy uniting the Grand Soiree Arcade Event, Crypto looks just like a character from CD Projekt RED’s upcoming RPG Cyberpunk 2077.
Wattson Grand Soiree Arcade skin
Wattson trades in her padded winter jacket for one that wouldn’t look out of place on a classic Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine. Featuring the same color scheme and Art Deco winged design, this is definitely a sweet new look that fans of tabletop wargaming might particularly enjoy.
All Apex Legends Grand Soiree Arcade weapon skins
In addition to new character skins, EA and Respawn are also implementing a few new weapon skins. All of them can be earned in-game by completing enough event challenges.
Peacekeeper Grand Soiree Arcade skin
The Art Deco patterning and slight imperfections on this new-look shotgun make it appear as though it could’ve been lifted straight from BioShock‘s iconic setting of Rapture.
R-301 Carbine Grand Soiree Arcade skin
The R-301 Carbine, on the other hand, looks positively futuristic with its outlandish coloring. It’s almost akin to a sci-fi blaster.
Havoc Grand Soiree Arcade skin
For a relatively high-concept gun, the standard Havoc skin is arguably too run-of-the-mill. The Grand Soiree Arcade variant addresses that issue, however, giving the firearm a distinctive look to match its distinctive abilities.
