The next event in Apex Legends centered around Bloodhound’s Town Takeover event is bringing a swarm of exclusive rewards for a limited time.

Along with the next Town Takeover, Respawn are packaging an exclusive Prize Track as well as a Direct Purchase Shop where people can instantly grab cosmetics tied to the Bloodhound’s origin as well as Legendary Hunt Skins.

This will mark the first time players will have another chance to get all of the original eight skins from the Season 1 event. With all of the ways to collect cosmetics, there’s going to be dozens of outfits that will be up for grabs during the Old Ways festivities.

Direct Purchase Shop

Respawn will be restocking their shop throughout the Old Ways lore event. The direct purchase shop will not only have skins inspired by the game’s new cinematic trailer, but will feature skins for Crypto and Wattson along with a frame for Bloodhound.

The shop will be rotating every five days with three new skins being made available for purchase. Bloodhound’s Young Blood skin will be the only cosmetic that will stay in the shop until the end.

Exclusive character skins are Bloodhound’s Wise Warrior for 1800 Apex Coins (AC), Wattson’s Static Maiden for 500 AC, and Crypto’s Azure Gaze for 500 AC.

Old Ways Exclusive Event Prize Track

There’s going to be a ton of chances to earn cosmetics throughout the course of The Old Ways. The Prize Track will let people earn points by completing daily challenges to unlock new items along the way.

This system is a follow up to the popular progression system introduced in the Grand Soiree and then revived in System Override. Completing each challenge will earn players 1,000 points, with the objectives refreshed every day.

Earn enough points and you can start unlocking some of the free rewards, including a themed weapon charm, Gibraltar skin, and weapon camo.

Legendary Hunt Skins

In addition to the items exclusive to this event, Respawn are also reintroducing some popular and rare skins from Apex history, so players will be able to claim cosmetic items from one of the first events to grace the battle royale.

Like the Direct Purchase Shop, there’s going to be a rotating collection of cosmetics that players can snag, including two recolored variants of the Wraith and R-301 skins.

This event kicks off on April 7 and will last the usual two weeks before wrapping up on April 21. For more information, make sure to check out our Bloodhound’s Old Ways Lore event and Town Takeover event page.

Respawn Entertainment has announced that they are delaying the official release of Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch, after announcing their launch on Steam for PC players.

The news that Apex was coming to Switch was first shared during the EA Play Live event on June 18, where they revealed the next stages of the game’s development. It finally put a host of rumors and leaks to bed since Apex’s debut back in 2019, as players wanted to immediately take the Arena with them on-the-go shortly after launch.

The news would have opened the game to expand its player count by millions, but Switch players will now have to wait a little longer after further delays were announced.

Apex Legends Nintendo Switch release date

Respawn confirmed that the new Switch port has been delayed until early 2021 after it was expected to arrive with the Steam version of the game.

“For those who game on the Nintendo Switch, we’re still hard at work on the port, but in order to do justice to the game and make it into the great experience Switch players deserve, our team needs more time,” Apex Game Director Chad Grenier confirmed, on October 23.

“This year has brought on unexpected new challenges, to put it mildly, and we don’t want to rush anything out,” the Respawn dev continued, “Switch owners can expect to get their hands on Apex Legends next year.”

Apex Legends will be on all the major consoles in early 2021.

While it is being delayed, he confirmed that it still arrive with all of the expected features, “of course, when Apex Legends does launch on Switch, it’ll come with support for cross-platform play, our latest seasonal content, and full feature parity with the other versions of the game.”

This won’t be the first time a major battle royale comes to Nintendo Switch. EA and Apex Legends are going to compete against Epic Games and Fortnite for the many battle royale fans on the platform.

The initial announcement was a longtime coming. Reports for a Nintendo Switch port have been around for about as long as Apex Legends has been released to the world.

In a 2019 interview only months after Apex’s release, Project lead at the time, Drew McCoy, said that the company knew a Nintendo port was on many people’s wishlist. Since then, it’s been a waiting game for Nintendo fans who have been waiting to get into the Arena.

Players from all walks of consoles will be able to drop into Apex Legends soon.

It’s unclear what the download size for the Switch version will be, so stay tuned to Dexerto for all the latest information on the upcoming Apex Legends port.
