Apex Legends Season 3 is well underway, bringing a new map and character for players to enjoy. That's not all Respawn Entertainment is adding in the month of October however, as it just wouldn't be right for a game to not acknowledge the creepy season. As such, there's a new trailer, celebrating the new nightmarish nirvana that's coming with Apex Legends Fight or Fright Collection event. You can check out the spooky trailer below:
This event is bringing a spooky version of the Kings Canyon map alongside several new skins to grab for each Apex Legends champion, allowing you to deck out your favorites as zombies, vampires, witches and more. Another limited-time addition to the game is the Shadowfall mode, which appears to pit a handful of champions against shadowy, melee-only opponents. There's also bonus XP to earn, so you can rank up faster.
Fortunately, you don't have to wait long to start cheerfully collecting creepy skins, as the Apex Legends Fight or Fright Collection Event begins tomorrow, October 15. Apex Legends is free-to-play, though of course you can pay (opens in new tab) for microtransactions to grab champion or gun skins that you just can't wait to have.
The hunt continues
Where are you landing?
Apex Legends is a new spin on the battle royale genre that brings character-specific abilities while retaining the tight gunplay and movement that Respawn Entertainment is so well known for.
You can download Apex Legends from the Microsoft Store???? Wow, I should uninstall Origin then because that's where I've been playing it from since release.
You got me hyped for a brief moment. Nah, WinStore one is not XPA and there's no PC version.
I guessed that was the case. These articles are getting increasingly sloppier. Always missing little facts, ambiguity, etc. I swear this site was a bit better a couple years ago...
Wait, you do know there's a PC versión, right? Only you need the Origin launcher from EA to play it. It's the only game I use there, because it's free. BTW, it's an amazing game.
