Share this:

While we just got Season 3 of Apex Legends, Respawn Entertainment isn’t stopping there. Announced today is the Apex Legends Halloween event called “Fight or Fright.” Set to launch this October 15, and running until November 5, a host of new content is set to be unleashed.

Here’s a summary of what to expect:

  • Limited Time Mode: Shadowfall – Experience a warped, dark version of the Apex games hosted by a mysterious figure known as Revenant. Sooner or later, players will end up joining Revenant’s powerful “Shadow Squad” without weapons or legend abilities — but with increased movement and jump speed.

  • Themed Content – Complete a variety of challenges to earn exclusive skins, badges and a music pack.

  • Limited Premium Cosmetics – Unlock a set of 24 themes, limited-time cosmetics; players can obtain these new in-game cosmetics through direct purchase for Apex Coins, direct unlock with Crafting Metals or random unlock with Event Apex Packs.

  • Double XP Weekend – Earn double XP for Top 5 finishes and wins. This bonus will affect both Account Level and Battle Pass progression.

The official EA site also has the info, and here’s the TL;DR version:
