    Apex Legends Summons FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH Event Trailer

    Electronic Arts announced a limit break crossover event to Apex Legends from January 9th -30th, 2024, summoning FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH to the Outlands, featuring a new BR Takeover with the Buster Sword R2R5, Materia Hop-Ups, and plenty of other secrets.

    Details as shared on official website:

    Worlds collide in the new BR Takeover featuring content that will be all too familiar to FINAL FANTASY VII fans. Wield the power of a Buster Sword R2R5, which will have gameplay abilities and can be picked up and used as a weapon as a part of the Takeover.

    Get access to light and heavy attacks, blocking to reduce damage taken and dash to close the gap, and fill your meter to use the quintessential Limit Break. The more you deal, take, and block damage, the faster your meter will fill.

    If you don’t find a Buster Sword R2R5 hot off your drop, keep an eye out for them in Care Packages and around the map.

    While you’re on the hunt for the ultimate weapon, look for Materia Hop-Ups for increased effects and/or bonuses. Each Materia Hop-Up has its impact and will only attach with select weapons, and can spawn in the world and event-limited Cactuar Ticks.

    Blue Materia HP Absorb Damage enemies to heal yourself
    Green Materia Lightning Reload an empty weapon to emit a shock nova, damaging and slowing nearby enemies
    Purple Materia Crit Rate Up Random criticals provide extra damage
    Red Materia Summon Summon a Nessie companion to attack your foes
    Yellow Materia Assess Damage enemies to see their remaining health


    Collect 36 items inspired by this first-ever crossover through dedicated Apex Legends & FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH Event packs, with Iconic skins for Horizon and Newcastle, sticker sets, and more! Get a Four-Pack for a guaranteed Legendary or Iconic item until all of those rarities are obtained.

    All 36 items (including the Buster Sword R5 Melee Cosmetic) will be randomly awarded via event packs with no duplicates of event items. The Buster Sword R5 (unlike the Takeover’s Buster Sword R2R5) is a Universal Mythic Melee Cosmetic that has no gameplay abilities and can be equipped in place of your heirloom or fists.

    The sword will not be coming to the Mythic Shop after the event ends, so unlock it while you can. 6 Iconic Legend skins will also be available for direct purchase via the store. As you continue to collect items, keep an eye out for Milestone Rewards, given after each milestone on the event packs page is hit.

    Full Apex Legends & FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH Event packs† probability, Four-Pack guarantee, and pricing details available in-game.

    Complete your Apex Legends & FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH collection before the event ends and you’ll automatically receive the One-Winged Angel Death Box — a brand new cosmetic item to Apex Legends that is equippable by any Legend via the new Lobby Melee tab.


    Earn Gil, an event currency, while playing the event mode and completing challenges to use in the Rewards Shop to unlock event-limited items. The Reward Shop will rotate inventory weekly and feature select event items, badges, and more. Keep an eye out for event packs to help with your crossover collection.

    You can also use Gil to earn additional Battle Pass Stars to continue your seasonal progress. Challenges refresh daily and you’ll want to complete as many as possible to earn the full amount of Gil.


    6 Iconic Legend skins will be available via the store as well as the Apex Legends & FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH Event packs, including Wraith, Horizon, and Crypto skins.
