Apex Legends update 1.22 is now rolling out for PS4 and Xbox One players. According to the official Apex 1.22 patch notes, the latest update brings a new limited-time event Fight or Fright. This haunting event is packed with exciting content including an all-new limited-time mode featuring Kings Canyon at night, exclusive event challenges where you can earn free loot, special Halloween inspired Collection Event cosmetics, and more. Apart from this, Apex 1.22 also made some adjustments to the Fight or Fright Event Limited cosmetics designed to give players more choice on how they obtain these items.
Previously, a big season 3 update was released which added a new legend – Crypto to the game, a new map, a new weapon, a host of in-game cosmetics and more. Unfortunately, many players are still experiencing a number of issues while playing the game. Today’s Apex Legends update 1.22 update is expected to fix a few of these issues. Check out more details below.
All-New Limited Time Mode – Shadowfall
Darkness descends on Kings Canyon in Shadowfall, a warped version of the Apex games hosted by a mysterious figure.
At the start of a match, you and 34 other solo players will drop into an eerily-lit Kings Canyon and fight to the death… with a dark twist. Once you die you will respawn as an undead version of your Legend and join the powerful “Shadow Squad”.
As part of the Shadow Squad, you will lose your ability to use weapons and your legend abilities will be stripped, but in return, you will be given increased movement and jump speed, along with a brutal melee attack. You’ll also have the ability to scale walls and be given unlimited respawns via skydive.
The battle rages until there are only ten living Legends left, who must then join forces and make it to an evac ship while the Shadow Squad attempts to stop them at all costs.
Complete Event Challenges for Exclusive Fight or Fright Cosmetics, including Two Legendary Weapon Skins
During Fight or Fright, complete a variety of challenges to earn free exclusive skins, badges and music packs.
Event Limited Premium Cosmetics
The Fight or Fright Collection Event brings another set of 24 themed, limited-time cosmetics to Apex. We strive to give players choice in how they can obtain in-game cosmetics, so for this Event we’ve updated the ways players can unlock these premium Collection Event cosmetics.
All 24 Event-Exclusive Fight or Fright Collection Event items will be available, from day 1, via direct purchase, crafting, and Event Apex Packs.
We’ve also removed event currency from the Event Apex Packs and have replaced it with additional loot. This means that players will get more total items in each Event Apex Pack. There are also zero duplicates in these packs. To get further into that spooky spirit, each Fight or Fright Collection Character Skin will also come with 2 themed quips.
Double Top 5 & Wins XP weekend
From 10am PST on October 25 through 10am PST on October 28 players will earn double XP for Top 5’s and Wins all weekend long. This bonus will affect both Account Level and Battle Pass progression.
Apex Legends update 1.22 for PS4 and Xbox One is now available fo download.
