To celebrate Apex Legends’ second anniversary and thank all of the Legends that have dropped into the arena, EA and Respawn Entertainment are releasing new rewards and ways to play the fan-favorite Battle Royale game. Starting February 9 and through February 23, players can join the Anniversary Collection Event and experience a new “Locked and Loaded” playlist takeover, in addition to seasonal challenges and the return of 24 fan-favorite items with a Legendary twist.
Dropping into Apex Legends on the 2-Year Anniversary, players will find:
• Anniversary Rewards - This event boasts 22 earnable items, including two Event Packs and ten Apex Packs. Players will also receive five awards for logging in for the first time.
• Locked and Loaded Takeover - This new playlist will have players land with a full loadout of Level 1 gear: a Mozambique, White Shotgun Bolt, HCOG Classic Scope, White Evo Shield, White Helmet, White Backpack, White Incap Shield, two Syringes, two Shield Cells and one stack of shotgun ammo. All Common/White level attachments and equipment will also be removed from the loot pool (outside of Common scopes) during the playlist takeover.
• Seasonal Challenges - Players get the chance to earn:
• Anniversary Collection Event - Respawn is bringing back 24 fan-favorite items with crimson red and gold touches. Unlocking all items in the Collection Event will earn players 150 heirloom shards. Additionally, the crafting cost for all items in the Collection Event has been reduced by 50%.
All this and more is running in tandem with Season 8 - Mayhem, which debuted the Legend Walter “Fuse” Fitzroy, along with his explosive abilities, a cataclysmic Kings Canyon map update, all-new Battle Pass, the 30-30 Repeater lever-action rifle, and for the first time, gold magazines that keep your stowed guns locked and loaded. The competition for fame, fortune and glory in the Apex Arena has heated up with Season 8 - Mayhem on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series XS, and PC via Origin and Steam.
