From October 15 to November 5 we will be running our next limited-time event for Apex Legends, Fight or Fright. This haunting event is packed with exciting content including an all-new limited-time mode featuring Kings Canyon at night, exclusive event challenges where you can earn free loot, special Halloween inspired Collection Event cosmetics, and more. To tell you more about the event we have Lee Horn, Director of Product Management for Apex Legends, to fill you in on all the spooky details.
As a reminder, a Collection Event is just one of the three event types in Apex legends. In addition to introducing an exciting new limited-time mode, we've also made some adjustments to the Fight or Fright Event Limited cosmetics designed to give players more choice on how they obtain these items.
What’s in the Event & Key Changes to the Event Structure:
? Limited Time Mode - Shadowfall
? Exclusive event challenges with free earnable cosmetics, including Two Legendary Weapon Skins
? 24 Event Limited premium cosmetics that players can now unlock in one of three ways:
? Lifeline Heirloom Set Preview
? Double XP for Top 5 & Wins Weekend
Experience Kings Canyon at Night in an All-New Limited Time Mode - Shadowfall Darkness descends on Kings Canyon in Shadowfall, a warped version of the Apex games hosted by a mysterious figure.
At the start of a match, you and 34 other solo players will drop into an eerily-lit Kings Canyon and fight to the death… with a dark twist. Once you die you will respawn as an undead version of your Legend and join the powerful “Shadow Squad”.
As part of the Shadow Squad, you will lose your ability to use weapons and your legend abilities will be stripped, but in return, you will be given increased movement and jump speed, along with a brutal melee attack. You’ll also have the ability to scale walls and be given unlimited respawns via skydive.
The battle rages until there are only ten living Legends left, who must then join forces and make it to an evac ship while the Shadow Squad attempts to stop them at all costs.
Complete Event Challenges for Exclusive Fight or Fright Cosmetics, including Two Legendary Weapon Skins
During Fight or Fright, complete a variety of challenges to earn free exclusive skins, badges and music packs.
Event Limited Premium Cosmetics
All 24 Event-Exclusive Fight or Fright Collection Event items will be available, from day 1, via direct purchase, crafting, and Event Apex Packs.
? Direct Purchase
? Event Apex Packs
We've also removed event currency from the Event Apex Packs and have replaced it with additional loot. This means that players will get more total items in each Event Apex Pack. There are also zero duplicates in these packs. To get further into that spooky spirit, each Fight or Fright Collection Character Skin will also come with 2 themed quips.
Non-Event items can be from the following categories: Weapon Skins, Legend Skins, Legend Finishers, Banner Frames, Banner Poses, Banner Stat Trackers, Intro Quips, Kills Quips or Crafting Metals.
We’re also updating the way you unlock the newest Heirloom item during the preview event. If you unlock all 24 Fight of Fright Collection Pack Items during the event, you’ll unlock the Lifeline Heirloom set for free. If you don’t manage to unlock this new Heirloom set during the event, it will be available as a bonus in Apex Packs after the event ends.
