Apex Legends 'Voidwalker' event goes all-in on Wraith with two weeks of new content

What you need to know

  • Apex Legends is kicking off a new Wraith-themed event next week.
  • Dubbed "Voidwalker," the event will be filled with new items, a new game mode, and challenges to check out.
  • The event runs from September 6 through September 17.

Apex Legends players will get a chance to dig into a fresh two-week event starting next week. Dubbed "Voidwalker," the event focuses on all things wraith, adding new game modes, challenges, and items to check out. Here's a quick rundown of everything you'll see across the event's two weeks:

  • Wraith town takeover
  • Limited-time mode – Armed and Dangerous
  • Exclusive event challenges
  • Direct Purchase Shop
  • Double XP for Top 5 and Wins Weekend

The event will expand some of the lore around Wraith, especially with the town takeover. "Syndicate construction crews have unearthed part of a decayed Project: Wraith facility in Kings Canyon," the Apex Legends team said in a blog post. "Jump in to discover for yourself the mysterious remains of the research site, including a functional prototype portal that can be used to get an early jump on the base – or to escape and reinitiate skydive."

Beyond that, the Armed and Dangerous game mode will mix things up by limiting weapons to snipers and shotguns. Loot will also be harder to find, adding some extra tension to the match. Throughout the event, completing special challenges will net you themed rewards that will only be available during the event.

Limited-timed themed cosmetics will be available from the direct purchase shop. The items will rotate through the shop during the event and, after September 17, they won't be eligible to return for six months.

Finally, from the event's start through September 9, players will earn double the XP for top five finishes and wins.

Apex Legends is free to play, and you can dive in on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
