Respawn Entertainment have released the first event for Apex Legends Season 4 – Valentine’s Day Rendezvous, which features the return of the fan-favorite Duos mode as well a reward and some new cosmetic items.

With Valentine’s Day just a few days away, Respawn are kicking off the recently-launched Season 4 of Apex Legends with a new in-game event called Valentine’s Day Rendezvous.

While not as massive as some of the events that have featured in the past, there’s still definitely some intrigue to it since it includes the popular Duos mode in which players can enjoy the game in pairs rather than be forced to play in trios.

The event was originally scheduled to launch on February 11 but Respawn announced later that day that it had been postponed after the accompanying update was not showing up for most players. Instead, it will start on February 12 until February 18, although there is a chance it could be extended an extra day due to the delay.

Throughout that time there will be a special ‘Double Up’ XP boost active that gives everyone who squads up with a friend twice the XP, up to 20,000 per day.

In addition, everyone who logs on at any point during those days will receive a Valentines 2020 badge, and be able to purchase special cosmetic items that are otherwise not available throughout the year.

There will be four Valentine’s-themed cosmetic items up for sale in the in-game store during this event. Two are brand new – Pathfinder and Nessie weapon charms – while the other two are returning from last year’s event – a Longbow DMR camo and Pathfinder banner.

The other two items – the ‘Lovefinder’ Pathfinder charm and ‘Love of the Game’ banner – will cost 700 and 800 coins respectively. Players will be able to purchase these items from February 15-18.

The Longbow camo and Pathfinder banner have been discounted since they’re both returning items from last year’s event.

Apex Legends dev confirms highly-requested inventory feature coming soon

The era of ‘red dots’ littered across Apex Legends’ menu tabs will finally come to an end after Respawn confirmed they’re implementing a ‘mark all as seen’ button to the game.

Apex’s bustling community is rejoicing after the developers indicated the long-awaited quality of life update that is scheduled for the next patch, if everything goes to plan.

While fans of the game have known for a while that the feature was pending, there hasn’t been much news of it since seeing it on Respawn’s Trello board a while ago. Since the conversation’s gone dark, it’s been a waiting game to see if the developers would follow-up on the organizational feature.

Well, an inquiring fan created a mock-up of what the ‘mark all as seen’ button could look like within the character-select screen. But fiction turned into reality once Respawn Senior Game Designer, Daniel Z. Klein, chimed into the discussion.

The red dots on tabs have cursed the Apex Legends menu screen for a while.

“Could we get a ‘Mark all as seen’ button? Would be useful instead of going through all the menus to clear the icons,” user ‘TigerTankSniper’ suggested, before Klein was happy to oblige.

“Good news! That’s probably coming in the next patch! John Hodgson put that one in not too long ago,” Klein was happy to report. Hodgson is another Senior Game Designer at Respawn, who’s about to make a lot of the Apex fans really happy.

Since the launch of Apex Legends back in February 2019, there’s been a ton of content regularly injected into the battle royale. This stretches from Legends, weapon cosmetics, sky trails, holo sprays, voice lines, banners, and a lot more.

As much as the fans have loved adding troves of content to their personal libraries, every time something new gets added a small red dot appears to notify players of the change.

“I have an army of them because all the useless blue and white items I get, not really motivated enough to click on all them so now it just keeps growing bigger and bigger,” one person wrote.

The thing is, those little indicators can be persistent and a bit of a bother; hence, the quality of life update that’s coming into the game very soon.

But the community can let out a collective sigh of relief seeing as they shouldn’t be a problem in Apex Legends after the next update.
