Event highlights

  • New Arenas Map: Overflow – Overflow differs from other Arena maps by being lane focused, where each location is separated by tall, lava-filled structures. Due to the separation, players will need to stay vigilant before committing to a side or risk being flanked. This map marks the 7th map added to the ongoing three map rotation, highlighting the ever evolving eco-sphere that is Apex Legends.

  • Rewards Track – Each week of the event offers back-to-back rewards tracks. Week one gives players a chance to unlock the Rampart Wastelander Set, which includes a matching gun charm, weapon skin and a Legendary Rampart skin. Week two grants Battle Pass boosters, crafting metals and Apex packs. Week three includes the Lethal Enforcer Bangalore Skin and more.

  • Thrillseekers Cosmetics and Summer Splash Sale – Kicking off July 13, the Summer Splash Sale will run through July 27, bringing back fan-favorite skins including Youngblood and Voidwalker, in addition to running sales on Apex packs.

Full event details.

NEW ARENAS MAP: OVERFLOW

The floor is lava! Well, some of it, anyway.

Overflow differs from other Arena maps by being lane focused; where each location is separated by tall, lava-filled structures. With this separation, players cannot easily spot early decisions made by the other team and will need to stay vigilant before committing to a side or risk being flanked. While there are opportunities for long-range engagements, combat tends to favor short-to-medium ranges along either POI: Overlook or Slope.

Overlook is a long, open area with a central interior that gives a height advantage over this POI. While this area is perfect for snipers or DMRs, players may want to hold the interior to control not only this area but their flank as well. Slope, as the name implies, offers both a high ground and a unique area where players can slide down to a remote part of the map. This area can be used for sneaky flanks or defensive setups where players may not expect it.

Overflow feels pretty different from our other maps, and our hope is that it will feel rewarding for both defensive and aggressive players alike. Let us know what you think!

WEEKLY REWARDS TRACKS

Let’s talk about the good stuff: unlockables. For the three weeks of the event, we’re running back-to-back rewards tracks:
