With Season 3 just around the corner, fans of Apex Legends look on in anticipation, as Respawn Entertainment have implored plenty of effort into building up the hype before the launch of the event on October 1.
With Crypto set to make his grand entrance, Legends have been shifted to an entirely new planet as part of the hacking vigilante’s campaign to take-over the battle royale.
However, looking ahead to the potential LTMs that will play a part in the impending season, Meltdown will take place over the course of the holiday season, which sets up some intriguing creative opportunities for Respawn Entertainment.
Indeed, holiday–themed events prove incredibly lucrative for games such as League of Legends, Overwatch and Fortnite; with their battle royale counterpart reaping the rewards from their ‘Fortnitemares’ event last Fall.
In an interview with Dexerto, Edgerly confirmed has that Respawn are jumping on the haunted bandwagon have been working on a Halloween event, where Pathfinder will be playing a larger role in the surrounding story.
The voice behind the optimistic MRVN robot explained: “The Halloween event coming up is going to be simply amazing. I recorded some new stuff for a short for it, where Pathfinder has a much bigger role.”
Edgerly continued: “They [Respawn] let me ad lib quite a bit so we’ll see what they kept in — and get ready to see some creepy, scary, kick-ass designs. Can’t say any more than that, unfortunately!”
The notion of a Halloween event has been leaked previously, with the inclusion of giant spiders set to provide a sinister spin on gameplay within the battle royale.
Meltdown’s gameplay trailer included a number of skins that were lapped up by the community, as Lifeline has received a devilish overhaul while Pathfinder appeared White Walker–esque with his icy revamp — hinting at the skins to come in Season 3!
This is Respawn’s first venture into the holiday season with Apex Legends, and with the bar raised high from rival titles, the developers will have to pull something out of the bag to ensure that they leave an eerie mist across Kings Canyon and World’s Edge.
