Enthusiastic fans have come up with some truly amazing skin concepts over the years. The latest comes from Reddit user Wolfdawgartcorner, and it perfectly displays what a skin of General Grievous may look like in Apex Legends. The skin concept imagines Grievous as a skin for the character Revenant. While Revenant’s stiff posture seems a bit strange given the way Grievous was typically protrayed in Revenge of the Sith or Clone Wars, but it’s still a great fit! It probably seems like the kind of thing that Star Wars fans wouldn’t mind viewing as a skin option in Apex Legends.
There are a lot of similarities between Revenant and General Grievous. In their backstories, both characters began life as organic beings, but both became more robotic over the years. Revenant was an assassin that slowly had his human parts changed by the Mercenary Syndicate and Hammond Robotics. Born on the planet Kalee, Grievous had horrible injuries during a war with the planet Huk. Grievous became a cyborg because of these injuries, becoming far more mighty, as a result. All in all, it makes a lot of sense to see the two characters integrated in this way!
While fans won’t get a opportunity to see Wolfdawgartcorner’s General Grievous design appear in the game, it wouldn’t be the first Star Wars skin to appear in Apex Legends. Last year, Electronic Arts unveiled a skin for Pathfinder based on BD-1, the droid that premiere in EA’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. While that was a clever tie-in for fans of the two games, Apex Legends has not seen any more Star Wars content since. Since then, the Star Wars brand has seen far more mashups with Fortnite, instead. EA continues working on Star Wars games, however, so it doesn’t seem unrealistic that more crossover content could come to Apex Legends in the future.
It’s certainly fascinating to see fan artworks such as this one. Concepts like Wolfdawgartcorner’s General Grievous skin show the height of passion that video game fans have for the titles they play. Apex Legends is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
