Direct Purchase Event Shop

The Event Shop will be selling a mix of legendary skins as well as Art Deco inspired cosmetics. These come with a price tag of $5. Six new legendary skins will be added to the loot pool which can be earned in Apex Packs. Or you can just buy them if you fancy doing it that way instead.
