Hot on the heels of Iron Crown, Apex Legends has detailed what’s coming next to the free-to-play battle royale – Voidwalker, a new event inspired by Wraith’s “mysterious past”.
Kicking off on 3rd September and running until the 17th, Voidwalker introduces a load of “awesome content”, including a new town takeover, a limited-time mode entitled Armed and Dangerous where weapons are limited to snipers and shotguns “while overall loot is much harder to come by”, and new challenges to earn “exclusive skins and Wraith-themed content”. All challenges and rewards will reportedly be limited to the two-week event.
There’ll also be a Double XP for Top 5 and Wins Weekend running from 6th September to 9th September the bonus of which will affect both account level and battle pass progression. A direct purchase shop will also be available, presumably in response to the loot box furore that plagued Apex’s last event. It’ll include a set of themed cosmetics such as the Voidwalker Wraith Legendary and custom character select animation, and unspecified “lower price point items”. These cheaper items will cost $5, and are “event limited” for six months.
