Apex Legends fans are eagerly awaiting the Collection Event in Season 13, and the wait will soon be over as the event draws closer. We strongly expect that Valkyrie will finally receive her heirloom - to the delight of the community. When will the update be released?

On May 10, the big Apex Legends Saviors update was released, so you've probably heard about it. If not, please check out this article from us about it. In Season 13, you can play the new legend Newcastle or enjoy the changes to Ranked Reloaded. If you want to know how to best play the defender Newcastle, you can read about it at this link. Respawn has really gone all out with Season 13.

Apex Legends Season 13 Collection Event

We know you, we really do. You and many other Apex Legends addicts have already been keeping an eye out for the upcoming Collection Event, which, as almost always, will bring a new heirloom to the Outlands. While the developers are still keeping a low profile, dataminers and leakers have already revealed who will receive the rare cosmetic and when the collection event will begin. What would we do without the leakers...?

Apex Legends Season 13 Collection Event Release Date

Respawn's developers haven't announced a specific release date yet, but Apex YouTuber Thordan Smash has found that a number of bundles related to the Collection event all mention a specific date. That's just really suspicious, right?

Based on this, he has revealed that the Collection Event is expected to take place on June 21st 2022. Of course, it's possible that Respawn will push this date back or choose a different date, so take this information with a grain of salt. After all, these are only leaks, nothing has been officially confirmed yet.

Furthermore, the Collection Event is referred to as "Hero Hunter" in the files, so it is possible that this is the name of the upcoming update. However, Respawn often uses placeholders in the code, so we'll have to wait and see if this is even confirmed. Those rascals, for real.

Apex Legends Season 13 Valkyrie's Heirloom

Over the past few months, dataminers and leakers have managed to find completed versions of Valkyries heirloom in the game files. Therefore, it can be assumed that the Winged Avenger will be the legend who receives the rare collectible in Saviors.

Not only is the spear incredibly detailed, but it also looks like it will be one of the greater heirlooms. We think it looks a lot like Revenant's Scythe, don't you? You can check out the impressive weapon below:

Given that Crypto's heirloom has a number of unique animations and rare interactions, it will be interesting to see if Valkyrie's spear is as detailed. It better be.

Apex Legends Season 13 Collection Event Skins

As for the Collection Event skins, only a few were found in SomeoneWhoLeaks' files for Gibraltar, Pathfinder and Caustic. Although they are all just epic tier cosmetics, they are all extremely unique. It's definitely worth picking them up if you own any of these legendaries.

There is no doubt that more skins will be revealed by the leakers before the event. We'll update you on that in this article as more information surfaces in the game's data.

For now, that's all we know about the Apex Legends Season 13 Collection Event. As the date gets closer, Respawn will provide more clues for the community.
