Respawn Entertainment are gearing up for a fresh drop of content for the Grand Soirée Arcade event in Apex Legends and a brand new image of the upcoming Dummie’s Big Day game mode has been revealed. 

The free-to-play title’s latest event kicks off on January 14 and runs right the way through towards the end of the month, drawing to a close on January 28. Inside this bumper update will be a further six game modes, another batch of themed skins, and plenty more.

However, those players that are very much interested to see what the Dummie’s Big Day mode brings will be delighted to know more images have been released for it just before it starts.

Posting to Reddit on January 13, via the Apex Legends subreddit, user FrozenFroh revealed yet another glimpse of it and it’s fair to say that players are starting to get excited for what’s coming soon.

They wrote: “Another picture of the DUMMIEs Big Day game mode, it only confuses me even more! What is it about?” And, that was quickly followed up by a response from a developer, RaymeCV, who remained tight-lipped on the matter.

“It is so very, very stupid and I love it so much,” they posted along with a slot machine, briefcase, dance, and ambulance emojis.

Before this image was released, all fans had to go off was the original event trailer that showed a brief glimpse of what’s to come from the update. Other modes include Third-Person, Gold Rush Duos, Armed and Dangerous: World’s Edge, Live.Die.Live, and Always Be Closing.

“This game ain’t going to test itself,” was the official description for Dummie’s Big Day, though, which is so far the only hint we have about what it entails – with some fans speculating it might be the game’s first foray into adding literal bots the game, much like Fortnite has done in Chapter 2. Yet, we’ll have to wait and see.
