Since the news of an Apex Halloween event was made known by Pathfinder voice actor Chris Edgerly fans have been highly anticipating the limited-time mode. Leaks have been making the rounds with Halloween inspired weapon and character cosmetics, a visit back to Kings Canyon but at night in the Shadowfall mode and the appropriate name for the event known as Fight or Fright. The event will be running from October 15 to November 5th.
Let’s take a look at some of the details announced by Respawn:
- Limited Time Mode – Shadowfall
- Featuring a nighttime version of Kings Canyon
- 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:
- Direct purchase for Apex Coins
- Direct unlock with Crafting Metals
- Random unlock with Event Apex Packs
- Additionally, the Event Currency in these packs has been replaced with non-event loot drops, yielding more loot overall
- Lifeline Heirloom Set Preview
- Unlock all 24 Fight or Fright pack cosmetics during the event and unlock the Lifeline Heirloom set for free
- Double XP for Top 5 & Wins Weekend
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.
Completing event challenges will allow you to unlock exclusive Fight or Fright cosmetics including two Legendary weapons
Event Limited Premium Cosmetics
The Fight or Fright Collection Event brings another set of 24 themed, limited-time cosmetics to Apex. We strive to give players choice in how they can obtain in-game cosmetics, so for this Event, we’ve updated the ways players can unlock these premium Collection Event 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
- 700 Apex Coins
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.
If that Caustic skin doesn’t put you in the Halloween mood then I don’t know what will but the newest event Fight or Fright already has high expectations from players especially since we are going back to Kings Canyon. Tell us what are you most excited for in the upcoming Halloween event Fight or Fright?
