Respawn has revealed the upcoming thematic event called “Dark Depths,” which will feature skins based on folklore.
As Apex Legends is a live-service title with an ever-evolving world, Respawn releases events regularly to spice things up for players. Usually, these events introduce new cosmetic items and Heirlooms to the game.
Among these events, Thematic events such as this one mainly feature exclusive skins. We finally have more information about the previously leaked Folklore thematic event, which turned out to be just a codename for the upcoming Dark Depths event.
