Players of the battle royale hit Apex Legends can look forward to a little variety. A new, time-limited game mode will be launched shortly.
The men from Respawn Entertainment have now announced that a new game mode will be available as LTM as part of the “Fight Night Collection” event. This will be called “Airdrop Escalation”.
The new update, which marks the starting shot for the game in 2021 as well as for other content in the context of Season 7, will bring other bug fixes and changes in addition to the game mode. Existing errors are also eliminated in the course of this.
The focus is on the mentioned event, which in addition to the mode also brings new rewards, collectable skins, a new weapon and more. In “Airdrop Escalation” the standard battle royale is changed in that you get a noticeably higher number of supply drops. You will find these on the map much more often than usual.
In this regard, Respawn states that the rate should be at the same level as the Lifeline Care Packages, as they will be available in normal lots. In every supply drop there is an equipped weapon of the various levels; Here, too, there are different variations from round to round. Regular weapons should still appear as loot in the individual rounds.
The event starts this week on Tuesday, January 5th, 2021. Apex Legends is available as a free-to-play game for PC, PS4 and Xbox One; a switch implementation is still in progress.
