A new game mode called Shadowfall will utilize the Kings Canyon map, but with a nighttime twist. After 35 players drop in, anyone who is killed will turn into an undead version of their character. Though they won’t be able to use any of their skills when undead, they’ll be faster and have a strong melee attack. Once there are only 10 players left, the remaining players will have to team up to make it to an evacuation ship before the undead players get them.
All the limited-time cosmetics for this event will also be obtainable via straight-up purchasing them, through crafting, or from buying Event Apex Packs. This after a previous event, Iron Crown, resulted in some community blowback due to its reliance on loot boxes.
From Oct. 25 at 1 p.m. ET until Oct. 28 at 1 p.m. ET., players will be rewarded double XP for placing in the top five players and for winning, too.
Check out some of the new cosmetics below.
