Apex Legends Event Structure Overview
Lee Horn, director of product management for Apex Legends, posted an overview of the event structure for Apex Legends on battle royale's website today. This article introduces three different types of events and their structures. These include Season Launches, Collection Events, and Themed Events. Lee Horn shared that the goal for these events is to add new ways to play in order to keep the game both fresh and exciting for all players. Each of these events has a unique theme with a variety of components, but share the same general framework:
- One or more new gameplay changes such as permanent and limited-time modes (Ranked or Solos respectively), map updates and town takeovers, balance changes, new characters, new weapons, and more
- New free progression content via challenges or the free Battle Pass track
- Purchasable cosmetics via Battle Pass, Packs, and/or the Shop
The Three Event Structures will Generally Have the Following
At the start of every season, you can expect a major map update, a new Legend, new loot items (weapons, ordnances, etc.), meaty changes to the Legend and weapon meta and balance, updates to our Ranked mode, and potentially new features (like we introduced in Season 2 with Ranked mode).Every season will also feature the release of a brand-new Battle Pass.
These events will generally occur during a season and bring with them a limited-time mode, event challenges that let players earn cosmetics, and a mix of event limited and evergreen cosmetics available for direct purchase. These events may also include a town takeover or small map change, and potential extensions to Apex Legends lore. Legendary Hunt was an example of a Themed Event, with the next one coming early September focused on a certain Phase Expert.
Collection Events will also take place throughout the season and deliver a limited-time mode, event challenges where players earn cosmetics, and a set of event limited cosmetics available via Event-specific Apex Packs or direct purchase; it's your choice. Like Themed Events, Collection Events may also feature a town takeover or small map change.
Aside from giving an overview of the events Horn also revealed that they received a lot of fan feedback related to the Iron Crown Collection Event. Horn said that the developers at Respawn are listening to the feedback. Another Collection Event is planned for October and before that event, Apex Legends is going to share how they are making changes to the event.
