The first Halloween event in Apex Legends will introduce players to a ghoulish version of Kings Canyon never seen in the game before.
The events of Season 3 for the battle royale took them away from the original map on Solace, to the chaotic frozen world of Talos for the new World’s Edge arena. But it looks like Respawn Entertainment weren’t ready to let go of let Kings Canyon just yet.
Instead, they’re breathing ghastly new life into the original site for the Apex Games, complete with demonic Leviathans, séance candles throughout the map, and Halloween costumes for the cast of Legends.
The October 14 trailer for the Fight or Fright event showed that a simple mix-up with a mysterious Interdimensional Rift took Pathfinder to a dark-themed Kings Canyon.
“Darkness descends on Kings Canyon with the Fight or Fright Collection Event!” Respawn said. “Experience Kings Canyon at night as you jump into an exciting new limited-time mode, Shadowfall, where a mysterious figure delivers his warped version of the Apex games, which turns fallen Legends into the undead.”
For a long time, players have been wanting to dive into the arena with the map draped in night, and the Apex Legends devs are finally delivering with a perfect event to compliment the change in scenery.
Kings Canyon after dark will be giving the classic map a completely new feel, especially with the Shadowfall LTM letting an army of ravenous zombies loose.
In a chilling clip, Caustic in a clown-themed skin is getting swarmed by members of the undead faction. Meanwhile another squad is cornered at The Cage holding off the dark horde as the zombies can be seen scaling the tower’s gigantic walls.
It seems like leaked character who could be called Revenant is orchestrating the dark army to haunt players in the holiday-themed LTM.
“In my games, you will fear the Shadows. Give this one a challenge,” the mysterious figure says.
The first look at Kings Canyon in the dark already has players thrilled to jump back into the classic map when the Fight or Fright collection event kicks off on October 15.
