Fortnite Live Event Countdown Timer

Excitement is at an all-time high in the world of Fortnite, as the highly anticipated live event for Season 7 will be taking place very soon.

Many things have made Fortnite one of the most popular games in the world over the past couple of years, with one of the most important being the exciting live events that Epic Games has pulled off over the course of the game’s many seasons.

These live events have been everything from concerts to giant battles where millions of players have been able to experience the adrenaline-fueled action simultaneously.

While the end of Season 6 and the start of Season 7 did not see a live event occur, this does not look to be the case for the end of Season 7 and the start of Season 8, as a Fortnite live event will indeed be taking place.

Apex Legends Monsters Collection Event skins leaked

The next Apex Legends collection event may have had some of its skins leaked, as a dataminer reveals some new content for a possible Monster event.



Apex Legends Monsters Collection Event skins

Just like any new update, dataminers have found some new code that hints at an Apex Legends Monster Collection Event, as well as some upcoming themed skins.

Apex Legends fans have been gifted with a brand new season, Emergence, which brought various new updates in the patch notes to freshen up the game. Players have been enjoying the new Legend, Seer, and the various weapon and Legend meta changes.

Although players were given a brand new battle pass with various cosmetics to unlock, it seems dataminers have unveiled even more upcoming content, which has got fans excited.

Apex Legends bloodhound

Popular Apex Legends dataminer Garretleaks has been revealing upcoming content for the battle royale for some time now, becoming a reliable source for leaks.

The latest leak involves the upcoming collection event and the first look at upcoming skins for Revenant and Bloodhound.

Leaked Apex Legends Monsters Collection Event skins

Garretleaks revealed the codename for the upcoming collection event is “Monsters,” which stands as the theme for the skins we can expect in the event.

For example, the skin Garretleaks revealed is a Revenant skin that depicts the Legend as a werewolf, possibly referencing the story of Little Red Riding Hood.

Some have even been speculating that we could see a Loba skin where she is portrayed as Red Riding Hood in the group of possible Apex Legends Monsters Collection Event skins.

There is also speculation that the event could revolve around old folk tales and fables that involve monsters, especially as the new Legend, Seer, seems to have a similar back story, with his community ousting him as cursed.

Further, Garret also revealed some holosprays of future Apex Legends Monsters Collection Event skins, which seem to be related to the event. As we know, holosprays often show future skins before they come out, as we had seen a lot of the Genesis Collection Event skins in holospray form before their release.

One of the holospray skins shown was for Bloodhound, which depicts the Legend as a simulacrum, which is pretty controversial as there has been a constant debate about what Bloodhound actually is.
