FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH Assembles for the Biggest Limited-Time Crossover Event in Apex Legends!

Ahead of the release of FINAL FANTASY™ VII REBIRTH for the PS5 next month, two of the largest names in gaming will come together for the Apex Legends & FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH Event in Apex Legends. On January 9th, players will be able to check out a brand new Limited Time Mode Takeover in Apex Legends, featuring the Buster Sword R2R5 and Materia hop ups, along with a range of new FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH inspired cosmetic items including new Legendary and Epic skins, stickers, emotes, and more.


For three weeks of infinite possibilities, the FINAL FANTASY VII  Takeover will replace the unranked battle royale mode in Apex Legends. In this exciting new mode, players can wield the Buster Sword R2R5 to dash, block bullets, unleash a powerful Limit Break, and more. New effects join the game in the form of Materia Hop-Ups, which grant benefits like area-of-effect (AOE) lightning and HP Absorption, plus a SOLDIER Nessie to fight by players’ sides.

But players won’t just be embracing gameplay inspired by FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH, they’ll be looking the part too! New skins come to the Outlands, including a moogle inspired skin for Wattson, along with iconic skins for Wraith, Crypto, and more. These skins can be bought with Apex Coins, and are part of 36 limited-time FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH-themed cosmetics. Players can collect them by purchasing Event packs to obtain items from the knockout pool, including the Mythic Buster Sword R5, the first Mythic cosmetic that can be equipped by any Legend!

The Apex Legends & FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH Event brings two gaming icons to the same universe, but only for a limited time.
