Apex Legends’ War Games event includes 5 new limited-time game modes
There’s a brand-new Peak Legends occasion, and it’s generating 5 brand-new turning video game modes for a minimal time. The occasion, War Games, will begin on April 13 and run till April 27.
Each of the brand-new modes in the War Games occasion will present particular modifiers to make things a bit various from the requirement Peak Legends fight royale. The 2nd Possibility mode will let gamers respawn, Ultra Zones includes a number of various Hot Zones to each match — instead of the typical one — and Consuming time makes the match go a little faster whenever a gamer passes away.
The War Games occasion will come with a couple of cosmetic devices for gamers too. Players can compete in the rotating game modes to earn rewards that include an Epic Rampart skin and an Epic 30-30 skin, as well as five unlockable battle pass levels and daily XP challenges.
Apex Legends’ War Games occasion will start next week. Here’s the full schedule of modes, along with Respawn’s description of each one:
Second Chance (Tuesday, 4/13 – Thursday, 4/15): Kicking off the event, this modifier grants each Legend one free respawn per match; once a Legend is killed, a Respawn Token is consumed to rise again from the player’s current location retaining all their weapons and gear. After a short duration, the player respawns high in the air to skydive back into the action.
Ultra Zones (Thursday, 4/15 – Monday, 4/19): Get ready for multiple Hot Zones within a single map, and for more epic loot and gold items. Each Hot Zone is enveloped in a Flash Point – the enormous, glowing bubbles that replenish HP and shields when you stand in them. In this mode, consumable items are still available as normal throughout the loot pool.
Auto Banners (Monday, 4/19 – Wednesday, 4/21): Adding a rather small but spicy change to squadmate respawning, this modifier lets gamers automatically retrieve their Squadmates Banner Cards! Gamers don’t need to loot their death box to retrieve their Banner Cards — they can just head straight to a respawn beacon. The loot pool has been altered to contain more Mobile Respawn Beacons too.
Killing Time (Wednesday, 4/21 – Friday, 4/23): This occasion speeds up the match as Legends fall; during a round, whenever a Legend dies, the round time is reduced. If any given round is a massacre, the ring will close quickly so players have to keep an eye on the round timer to survive this modifier.
Armor Regen (Friday, 4/23 – Tuesday, 4/27): Closing out the War Games, the Armor Regen will regenerate over time at a rate of 12 points per second in this final mode. Whenever players take damage, their armor will begin regenerating after an 8-second delay; this delay is doubled to 16 seconds if a gamer’s armor gets split.
