An Apex Legends player creates an incredible wraith skin trailer with perfect precision by crossing over Netflix’s new popular series Squid Game.
An Apex Legends fan recently took to Twitter to show off an incredibly well-made trailer featuring a Wraith skin modeled after a member of the Squid Game team. Since its initial release in mid-September, Squid Game, Netflix’s most-watched TV series to date, has steadily grown in popularity. The fan-made trailer quickly went viral among the Apex Legends community, who have embraced the unofficial crossover concept with enthusiasm.
Respawn, the studio behind Apex Legends hasn’t been known for doing many collaborations or crossovers in the past. The majority of Apex Legends skins are obtained through in-game events or by completing specific challenges. Of course, some skins can be purchased in the game’s store, allowing players to customize their favorite characters.
As discussed in a recent article by Dexerto, the recent fan-made trailer was the brainchild of Twitter users and 3-D designer humansas_.
It’s easy to see how much effort humans put into the “Legendary Wraith Number 47” trailer, which seamlessly blends the show’s Squid Game staff characters’ colors, styles, and feels into the Apex Legends world. Going a step further, humans even shows off some of his character’s movements and close-ups in the brief 22-second video while also making it clear in the original post that the video was not in any way official.
This didn't have to be your end. You chose this fate. 🧧
