Progress up the Event Prize Track and Earn Increasingly Prestigious Rewards
We’ve overhauled the event challenges to a new prize track system that gives everyone more rewards and more ways to earn. Earning challenges will net you points and earning more points gets you more rewards.
Each limited-time mode will have three new challenges worth a total of 1000 points. We’ve tuned the system so that you don’t need to be there every day, but the socialites among you will also receive a special badge for trying every mode. And don’t worry, you’ll still be able to complete your battle pass challenges throughout the event too.
Also announced is the Bonus Scoring Weekend, where players can grab an additional set of event-specific challenges worth a total of 500 points. This Bonus Scoring Weekend will start this January 17 at 10 a.m. PT and will last until January 20 at 10 a.m. PT.
Finally, same as with other Apex Legends events, the Grand Soiree will have a direct purchase shop that includes a mix of legendary skins as well as other cosmetics at a $5 price. Skins will be rotating throughout the event, and six new Legendary skins will be added to the core loot pool at the start of the event. These Legendary skins can be crafted or obtained from Apex Packs at any time and is available for direct purchase during the event.
