A week before, we shared with you that developer Respawn Entertainment is all set to introduce a new Solos mode in the free-to-play battle royale game, Apex Legends. The wait is now over!
This one is for all you Apex Legends fans out there – the Iron Crown Collection event has finally kicked off. You all have two full weeks to participate in new challenges, and enjoy a new temporary Solos mode to the battle royale game along with experiencing a number of new stylish character skins and gameplay tweaks. The even that began on August 13 is set to go on until August 27.
Various other elements added to the exciting event include a special Iron Crown Collection Pack, Octane Town Takeover, a new currency called Crowns that can be spent at the Iron Crown Event Store, and some exclusive new challenges. So far as the limited-time Solos mode is concerned, it is most likely to get permanent. However, player feedback will decide its final fate. The Solos mode will pit 60 players against each other.
“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,” Lee Horn, Director of Product Management for Apex Legends, said in a blog post.
The Apex Legends Iron Crown Collection event is now live on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Season 2 of Apex Legends, along with a new battle pass, was launched on July 2. Respawn confirmed that it will continue for three months, just like the first season. It will be packed with scores of changes including a ranked mode for a more challenging gameplay, and a new battle pass full of cosmetics to unlock.
While the theme of the Season 1 was Wild Frontier that introduced players to a new Legend called Octane, Season 2 is based on Battle Charge featuring a brand new character called Natalie “Wattson” Paquette who damages and slows its rivals using electrified fences.
You can select between ranking up a free or a premium Battle Pass in Apex Legends Season 2. Of course, if you opt for the free version, you will have fewer rewards and a slower progress. To avail the premium pass, you will have to pay 950 Apex Coins, just like in Season 1.
