Respawn Entertainment revealed the Lost Treasures collection event for Apex Legends during the EA Play livestream on June 18. The event is set to include the Crypto Town Takeover, the “Armed and Dangerous Evolved” limited-time mode, and more!

EA confirmed Apex’s next in-game event will take place between June 23 to July 7, and will be bringing the most content we’ve seen in Season 5 yet. This time around, there’s stacks to look forward to. The “Armed and Dangerous Evolved” LTM headlines the Lost Treasures event, and sees players do battle across Kings Canyon armed only with shotguns and sniper rifles.

Respawn has also unveiled new details on Crypto’s Town Takeover, which will be debuting in the upcoming collection event. The new point of interest will be called “Crypto’s Map Room” ⁠— a fitting name. It will be arriving soon.

There’s also plenty more coming in the Lost Treasures event too ⁠— Mirage is finally getting an heirloom, two more legendary weapon skins will debut on the exclusive event prize track, and of course, there will be event packs too.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Lost Treasures Collection Event, coming to Apex Legends from June 23.

Apex Legends Season 5: Lost Treasures – What’s coming?

Armed and Dangerous Evolved limited-time mode

Long-standing Apex Legends fans will recognize Armed and Dangerous as the iconic sniper and shotgun-only mode. Lost Treasures is bringing back the old LTM with a bit of a twist as well.

In the Lost Treasures event, Armed and Dangerous will only have Evo Armor available across the map. That means blue, purple, and gold armor will not be available at all. If you want top tier armor, you’re going to have to work for it!

Crypto Town Takeover

The next Apex Legends Town Takeover has been confirmed ⁠— Crypto’s new addition to the map will be called “Crypto’s Map Room,” and will arrive alongside the Lost Treasures event once it begins next week on June 23.

We will update Apex Legends fans once more details, including where the Crypto Takeover will be landing, and what kind of loot and treasure is available there, when that becomes available closer to the event date.

Lost Treasures Apex Packs

Apex Legends players have opened countless packs at this point in the game’s lifespan. During this event, fans will also have access to limited edition Lost Treasures themed packs. Players can purchase Lost Treasures with Apex Coins, unlocked with Crafting Materials, or will randomly unlock with the Event Apex Packs.

Inside, players could unlock a “set of 24 themed, limited-time cosmetics, in addition to 6 matching legendary character and weapon skins, and 12 other epics,” according to an official statement.

As a reward, those who unlock all of the 24 System Override cosmetics, made available by this upcoming update, will be granted a brand new Mirage Heirloom set. Regular players will be aware that Heirlooms are the rarest in the game, so if you want to claim this new one, get to work!

Apex Legends Holo-Day Bash 2020: Start date, skins, Winter Express LTM

It’s almost that time of year again, and Apex Legends’ second holiday season is about to get into full swing. Holo-Day Bash is set to return for 2020, with all new skins, and a rerun of the Winter Express LTM.

To keep up with the yearly festivities, the first event of Apex Legends Season 7 will be holiday-themed – this we know thanks to some badges that have already confirmed the 2020 Holo-day bash ahead of an official announcement from Respawn.

The exact same thing happened with this year’s Fight or Fright event, for Halloween, which was also revealed early due to in-game badges that couldn’t be unlocked yet.

So, if you’re wondering when Holo-day Bash 2020 starts and ends, what kind of cosmetics will be available, and what mode to expect, here’s everything we know so far.

When is Holo-Day Bash 2020 in Apex Legends?

The Holo-Day bash will start on December 1, and run through until January 4.

Badges for Holo-Day Bash 2020 are already visible in Apex Legends.

Unlike last year though, this is not a Collection event. Instead, like Fight or Fright, Holo-Day Bash 2020 is just a Themed event. That means there won’t be a new Heirloom to unlock, whereas last year,  Pathfinder’s boxing gloves could be unlocked by completing the collection.

On November 24, Respawn Entertainment revealed a brand new trailer for the event.

Holo-Day Bash 2020 skins

Just because it’s not a collection event though, doesn’t mean there won’t be new skins and cosmetics to get your hands on. The trailer showed off nine in total, from what we could see.

These skins will be available in bundles in the Item Shop from December 1, seen below.

There’s also an event prize tracker, which you will be able to complete through challenges.

Winter Express LTM

Speaking of challenges, you’ll want to complete these in the “new-and-improved” Winter Express LTM.

For those who didn’t play last year, Winter Express takes place on World’s Edge, with Mirage as the game announcer. The objective is to win control of the train over three rounds. And there’s no loot – instead, Legends are given preset loadouts.

On the event, they said in a blog post: “This year, when your squad respawns after a round has finished, you will spawn on your own supply ship as it follows the train. From here, your squad will be able to survey the battlefield and skydive into combat as the train arrives at its next station and the objective unlocks. The squad that won the previous round will respawn directly on the train.

Respawn Hover Tanks

In the trailer, new Respawn Hover Tanks could also be seen, seen below.

The way these will work in Apex Legends was not broken down as much as the other features, though it seems fairly obvious that they will be incorporated alongside the Respawn Beacon system we’ve come to know.
