An Apex Legends developer has renewed hope for a Limited Time Mode (LTM) rotation that would change up alternate playlists every two weeks, a wishlist feature for many.

A staple in the battle royale genres, LTMs give players a completely fresh take to gameplay and is typically a more lighter experience than the base king-of-the-hill mode. It’s a bittersweet feature in Apex, since community members tend to really love Respawn’s LTMs.

Since new ones generally come out at the start of a new season or mid-chapter events, it could be a while before players get to try out a different flavor of action in the Arena.

While this isn’t a major point of contention with Apex fans, there are some people that have hoped for a more active approach to diversifying the LTMs in the game.

Apex Legends Game Director Chad ‘hkysk8r187’ Grenier rekindled the fires of hope to those who’ve been waiting for more ways to experience LTMs.

Redditor ‘aletz_dav’ posed the “possibility that (Apex Legends) could have an LTM every two weeks, they could be the same modes that you already showed.” Grenier responded: “Yes, it’s a possibility!”

An LTM rotation would dip into Respawn’s impressive catalogue that includes past favorites like Armed and Dangerous, Winter Express, Gold Rush Duos, and more. There’s over a dozen of different game types that could one day be repped in a rotating playlist.

Though the Season 6 update brought in a ton of content for players to dive into, some feel that a rotating playlist would be a great way to re-engage groups of the community that might have taken a break from Apex.

As for newer Apex players, this would be a great way to experience some of the first LTM releases they might have missed out on.

Of course, anything can change in the development cycle, but there could be enough interest for rotating modes in Apex Legends to be a popular feature on release.

While expectations for LTM rotations should be tempered for the moment, the Apex Legends community now knows the highly-requested feature is on the dev’s radar.

However, with a few weeks left until Season 6 comes to a close, there is still plenty of new content and cosmetics being released for fans of the battle royale to experience.

The latest season has already delivered two new Prime Gaming skins, one for the new Legend Rampart and one for Bloodhound, but Respawn has revealed they will be releasing one more for Lifeline.

  3. Simply press on the Claim Now button above the Pastel dreams skin.

So, there you have it, once you follow all of those steps you should be able to access the new lifeline skin the next time you log-in.

It is worth noting that Bloodhound’s ‘Will of the Allfather’ skin is also currently available for those who have not claimed him yet, but as these Prime Gaming skins are only available for a limited time period, it is worth unlocking them sooner rather than later.
