What it doesn’t have yet is a Steam release date

Apex Legends, like dozens of other Electronic Arts titles, is heading to Steam sometime in the near future. To commemorate the occasion, developer Respawn Entertainment has announced a few exclusive gun charms that will make their way to the game and bridge the gap between Apex Legends and some of Valve’s most famous franchises.

The new gun charms include tie-ins to Valve’s Half-Life and Portal series. One of the charms is Octane with a headcrab and partially zombified features.

The Steam version of the game will also feature the potato that GLaDOS inhabits for part of Portal 2 as a charm, as well as a charm version of Wattson holding onto a Companion Cube from Portal.

According to Respawn, all of these Gun Charms will be free limited-time login rewards for players that hop onto the Steam version of the game after it comes out. However, we still don’t know exactly when that’s going to be. For now, players can wishlist the game to keep up with updates on its release, but the official release itself is still just listed as “fall,” which could really mean anytime in the next several months.
