Get ready, Apex Legends fans, because two weeks of “beautiful mayhem” are headed your way in November, courtesy of none other than the renowned singer and songwriter, Post Malone. While the enigmatic announcement has sparked curiosity, the details remain shrouded in mystery.
Post Malone himself teased this upcoming event via his Twitter account, cryptically stating, “Get ready for two weeks of beautiful mayhem #ApexLegends.” The cryptic message accompanied a short video clip featuring Post Malone in a position reminiscent of an Apex Legends character in need of revival, as he humorously pleads, “Can someone rez me?”
The prospect of Post Malone entering the gaming realm immediately brings to mind the groundbreaking virtual concert hosted by Travis Scott in Fortnite. While the possibilities are intriguing, it’s important to manage expectations. Apex Legends differs from Fortnite in that it’s not built as a metaverse-style platform.

Organizing a large-scale in-game event of that magnitude typically entails extensive planning and anticipation, which suggests that a Travis Scott-like event in Apex may not be on the horizon.
The teaser video does, however, provide a glimpse of what to expect, with the Apex Legends character Octane superimposed over Post Malone’s portrait. This hints at a more grounded collaboration, potentially involving a Post Malone-inspired character skin.
Players may also look forward to a “find the facial tattoos” collection event, new music, and even in-game streaming, a realm in which Post Malone has dabbled in the past.

Interestingly, Post Malone is not just an outsider entering the gaming world; he’s an Apex Legends enthusiast. In a 2022 interview with the Full Send Podcast, he expressed his fondness for Apex Legends, stating, “I was just never a BR guy because I’m not that good at them. But something about Apex, I just started playing it, and I really, really enjoyed it.”
The Apex Legends Post Malone event is scheduled to kick off on November 7. As more details emerge, we will keep you informed about this exciting crossover.
