Apex Legends Seven New Modes For January 2020 Event:
This Apex Legends event has an arcade-style that players can enjoy in seven different limited-time game modes. A different mode will be unlocked every two days throughout January. These game modes consist of three previous hits as well as four new ones.
- Gold Rush Duos (Jan 14-15) – gold weapons only with two players per team
- Live.Die.Live (Jan 16-17) – downed players automatically respawn on teammates at the end of each round
- Third-Person Mode (Jan 18-19) – same old battle royale but from the third-person perspective previously referenced in an easter egg hidden within the game’s updated Training mode
- Always Be Closing (Jan 20-21) – the ring keeps moving without pause
- Armed and Dangerous on World’s Edge (Jan 22-23) – snipers and shotguns only on the current default map
- King’s Canyon After Dark (Jan 24-25) – the night-time variant of the original map returns once again
- DUMMIES Big Day (Jan 26-28) – the event’s press release doesn’t let on much about this mode but it seems to be a test of the AI built into another Training mode easter egg
Each challenge is redesigned into a battlepass consisting of a “prize track system” in which players gain extra point rewards to boost up their rankings. Every single mode is packed with three unique challenges giving players an opportunity to earn quick points.
The event seems to be a testing phase for Respawn. The studio might want to test new concepts in real-game-environment with its player-base before incorporating them as the new season approaches.
