Last month, we kicked off Apex Legends Season 2 – Battle Charge. Since then, it’s been awesome to see players hustling to get to higher tiers in Ranked, creating strategic plays with Wattson, and using new parts of the environment to their advantage. In the process, the community has provided lots of great feedback for us to take in.
But that’s not all we have planned for this season! Today, we’re kicking off the Iron Crown Collection Event. To tell you all about it we have Lee Horn, Director of Product Management for Apex Legends. Take it away, Lee.
Leeeeeee-RSPN here with an overview on the Iron Crown Collection Event.
TL;DR What’s in the Iron Crown Collection Event:
- Limited-Time Mode – Solos
- Octane Town Takeover
- Double XP for Top 5 and Wins Weekend
- A special Iron Crown Collection Pack and Iron Crown Event Store
- With Bloodhound Heirloom Set Preview
- Exclusive event challenges with free loot
Limited-Time Mode – Solos
That’s right, we’re finally dipping our toes in the Solo waters. While we are committed to Apex Legends delivering a competitive, three-player squad experience, we’re going to put Solos in for a limited time. We are always striving to ensure healthy matchmaking across all modes, so it’s too early to say whether Solos will be permanent or not, but we’re going to watch and see what happens. As always, we want to hear your feedback, so let us know what you think.
Octane Town Takeover
Octane has taken over part of Kings Canyon and done a bit of remodeling to better suit his adrenaline-seeking tendencies. Check out the mega jump pad course and Ring of Fire to eliminate enemy squads in style. We’re always looking for new ways to weave Legend personalities into the map, and this change will remain part of Kings Canyon even after the event ends. If the community enjoys these types of town takeovers we’ll look into adding more for other Legends in the future.
