'Apex Legends' (ALL) Adds Duos as The Old Ways Event Begins Tomorrow - Trailer

by Rainier on April 6, 2020 @ 1:33 p.m. PDT

Set in the Titanfall universe, Apex Legends is a free to play battle royale game with a cast of unique characters, squad-based gameplay, innovative mechanics and more.

Apex Legends delivers a squad-based battle royale experience with a uniquely Respawn flavor. Players will select from one of eight Legends - each with their own unique abilities and playstyles - and the last team standing wins. Combatants can choose from unique characters like Bloodhound, the tracker who can see recent enemy activity on the map, or Lifeline, a battlefield medic who can shield teammates and bring them back from the brink of death. Balanced squads and teamwork are critical, as each Legend is easy to pick up and learn, but challenging to master.

Apex Legends showcases several new genre-leading innovations, starting before players even start the match. Once players are ready to begin, they’ll choose their drop point with the Jumpmaster system, giving each squad full control over exactly where they drop in. Is it smarter to head straight for the most valuable loot and risk early conflict with other teams, or make for one of the outlying areas to plot an attack and let other squads pick each other off?


In The Old Ways lore event, which starts tomorrow and runs through April 21, players can take on hordes of Prowlers in Bloodhound’s Town Takeover and explore a host of new event-exclusive skins including the Young Bloodhound Skin. In addition, beginning tomorrow, Respawn will also permanently add duos mode and map rotation giving players the ability to play Duos or Trios on Kings Canyon and World’s Edge.

Starting tomorrow, the elusive and master hunter Bloodhound is taking players back to The Old Ways in the Town Takeover on World’s Edge, “Bloodhound’s Trials.” This enclosed arena lets players face-off against terrifying Prowlers,, for a chance to get their hands on coveted high-tier loot. The Old Ways event delivers an all-new prize track with rewards inspired by the latest Stories from the Outlands: The Old Ways trailer, as well as the return of eight Legendary Hunt Skins on offer for direct purchase.

The Old Ways Lore Event, which features:

  • New Town Takeover - Bloodhound’s Trials
  • Exclusive Event Prize Track
  • Direct Purchase Shop
    • New Event Limited Cosmetics
    • Return of Legendary Hunt Skins

New Town Takeover - Bloodhound’s Trials

When the Apex Games came to World’s Edge, large predators vacated the area, leading to an explosion in the prowler population. Most were traced to a nest in the northwest portion of the arena, and here, Bloodhound saw an opportunity: maintain the ecosystem by pitting humans against beasts.

Dive into Bloodhound’s Trials, where you and your squad battle against a hoard of prowlers and claim high-tier loot as your reward. But beware the most dangerous game: fellow Legends who want to scavenge those goods for themselves. In moments of quiet, don’t forget to explore the enclosure, especially with a certain hunter at your side.

The Old Ways Exclusive Event Prize Track

As part of the Old Ways Event, you’ll have the chance to complete daily challenges and earn exclusive cosmetics inspired by the latest Stories from the Outlands: The Old Ways digital short. We've been seeing a lot of positive feedback from players in regards to the prize track we introduced with Grand Soiree and continued with System Override, and with The Old Ways event we're delivering an all-new prize track with the following rewards:


As with the System Override Event, you’ll be able to earn up to 1000 points per challenge set and the challenge set will refresh at a daily rate. Plus, you’ll still be able to complete your battle pass challenges at the same time too.

Direct Purchase Shop

We're adding new, exclusive skins that tie-in to The Old Ways digital short, similar to the Wraith skin from last September's Voidwalker event. There’s also a mix of legendary and rare skins inspired by the aesthetics and themes of the short. The full schedule for these items is below:


Finally, The Old Ways Event marks the return of the Legendary Hunt Skins. All 8 of the original Legendary Hunt Skins will be on offer for direct purchase in addition to 2 recolored variants of the Wraith and R-301 skins that were exclusive to battle pass owners. As with before, these are still event exclusive so they won’t be available outside special occasions.


To celebrate this event, we invite you to join young Bloodhound on the hunt in the latest installment of our Stories from the Outlands series,  titled “The Old Ways.” In a village that has learned to fear machines, a child is sent on a hunt in a final rite of passage. But when confronted with a monstrous threat, they must decide whether to reject the teachings of their elders. Follow Bloodhound’s trail and see how a Legend was created.

The innovations don’t stop there as Apex Legends also delivers Respawn Beacons, one-time use locations where defeated teammates can be revived, a contextual Ping communication system that allows players to call out enemies, weapons, locations and more with the push of a button, and an intelligent inventory system which automatically attaches gear and equipment to the appropriate weapons once players pick them up. All together it creates a battle royale experience unlike any other, complete with Respawn’s commitment to top-notch quality and fun.

Apex Legends is now available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
