Apex Legends developer Respawn is getting ready to host their Halloween event.
The Apex Legends Monsters Within event has a release date of October 12 for PlayStation, Xbox, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
While there is no official launch time, updates and events for Apex Legends are usually released at 6 p.m. UK time.
The Monsters Within event will run for three weeks, until the afternoon of November 2.
As part of the event, Respawn will be adding a new Arenas map, the Shadow Royale LTM, and plenty of spooky rewards.
“From October 12 through November 2, join the Monsters Within event,” the official description reads.
“Fight to conquer the Encore Arenas map, the place where Seer made his name as a man to be reckoned with.
“Cosmetic sets limited to special events highlight the spooky side of some of our most fearsome legends, including Revenant, Bloodhound, Caustic, and Seer.”
The Encore Arenas map is located on Seer’s home planet, Boreas. They say it’s a fairly open map where teamwork and strategy are essential.
Respawn explains more: “The layout offers combat over two high ground power positions.
“On the one hand, we have a VIP lounge. The lounge platform allows for direct combat. Flank options in the interior sections provide good clutch opportunities and strategic ways to dominate fights.
“On the other side of the VIP lounge is the performance stage. Establishing control there is highly dependent on the support fire of your teammates.
“The flanks above the seat rails are wide and exposed. Encore’s middle is devoid of high ground positions and separates the stage and platform from the living room.”
Similar to previous Fortnitemares events, Apex Legends fans will also be able to participate in an alternate version of Battle Royale.
It takes the form of Shadow Royale, which is described as a “darker version of the Apex games”.
Overseen by Revenant, Shadow Royale sees the Fallen Legends reappear as a dark specter with unlimited lives. Ghost players will be able to help their living teammates survive and potentially even win matches.
It should be noted, however, that the Shadow Royale game mode will only be available during the last week of the Monsters Within event.
Needless to say, a new event also means a new bundle of 40 items and skins to unlock for a limited time.
This includes regular Apex packs, event packs, and a new Loba skin, not to mention the limited edition Monsters Within packs.
“For 400 Apex Coins, players can get an Event Theme Pack that is guaranteed to have an item not limited by events,” explains Respawn.
“We will also be bringing classic skins from past Halloween events to the Apex Store, such as Wraith’s ‘Mistress of Evil’ and Crypto’s ‘Deadly Byte’ skins.”
