Thus far for Apex Legends in 2024, the game is in the mid of a metamorphosis. Despite a dip in retention and engagement, Electronic Arts promises further investment in its live-service – Apex Legends being one of its biggest earners. Additionally, lead writer Ashley Reed sheds new plans moving forward this year. In that, the game is to feature more gameplay-involved experiences tied to the growing story for Apex Legends.

In celebration of its five-year anniversary, players jumped in with a new Season 20 – Breakdown. No new Legend, map, or weapon, Apex Legends instead integrates a new Legend perk system that regards good performance in-game. This season also welcomed the recent ‘Inner Beast Collection Event’ which featured limited-time game mode, The Hunt.

A new trailer uploaded reveals another event coming to Apex Legends, ‘Shadow Society Event’. The event will be live from March 26th to April 16th. You can watch the gameplay trailer in the video below:

“Hold fast with your squad and defend your domain in Lockdown, the first 4-squad free-for-all battle for dominance. Squads will spawn in with standard TDM loadouts and seek out Capture Zones, which will periodically spawn throughout the small, mayhem-filled maps: Thunderdome, Skulltown, Zeus Station, and Monument. Earn points by capturing zones, holding them uncontested, and eliminating other players. The first squad to 500 points wins.”

The blog post also shed light on the first ever universal Apex Artifact, the Cobal Katar. “Apex Artifacts are an all-new universal Mythic Melee cosmetic that can be wielded by any Legend—starting with the ‘Cobalt Katar’. Equip your Apex Artifact via the new Melee tab, available after selecting a Legend.”
