Each week in September, a returning LTM mode will be available in Apex Legends, rotating every Thursday, and we know now which LTMs are coming, after DUMMIE’s Big Day was temporarily disabled.

The September Soiree event is the first mid-season event of Season 6, and as well as returning LTMs, will bring back skins from the Grand Soiree in January, that can be purchased at a discounted price.

This sale will start on September 15 and run until September 22, while the September Soiree itself continues until October 5.

DUMMIE’s Big Day had to be taken out due to a major bug.

This is because the final LTM will begin on September 29, and be available for one week. However, Respawn themselves did not confirm what the next modes will be in rotation, following DUMMIE’s Big Day.

Unfortunately, shortly after DUMMIE’s Big Day went live, a somewhat game-breaking bug would crash the lobby if a player went AFK during character select.

Respawn acted quickly and disabled the mode, and replaced it with Kings Canyon: After Dark.

Next LTMs in Apex Legends

As confirmed by reliable data miner and content creator Shrugtal, three more LTMs are coming, in the following order:

  • King’s Canyon: After Dark
  • Armed & Dangerous
  • DUMMIEs Big Day
  • LIVE. DIE. LIVE.

If Respawn keep the dates they were using previously, then Armed & Dangerous will start on September 15, DUMMIE’s Big Day on September 22, and LIVE. DIE. LIVE on September 29.

If you’re unfamiliar with these modes, Armed & Dangerous typically only has Shotguns and Snipers, with limited shields.

Kings Canyon: After Dark is fairly self-explanatory, it’s just the night-time version of the map. The last time this LTM was available, it was the Season 2 version of Kings Canyon. That could mean Skulltown returns.

And finally, LIVE. DIE. LIVE automatically respawns dead teammates every time the ring closes.

As mentioned, it’s still possible that these LTMs change, or the dates they’re scheduled to arrive changes. We’ll keep you up to date.

Respawn Entertainment has announced that they are delaying the official release of Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch, after announcing their launch on Steam for PC players.

The news that Apex was coming to Switch was first shared during the EA Play Live event on June 18, where they revealed the next stages of the game’s development. It finally put a host of rumors and leaks to bed since Apex’s debut back in 2019, as players wanted to immediately take the Arena with them on-the-go shortly after launch.

The news would have opened the game to expand its player count by millions, but Switch players will now have to wait a little longer after further delays were announced.

Apex Legends Nintendo Switch release date

Respawn confirmed that the new Switch port has been delayed until early 2021 after it was expected to arrive with the Steam version of the game.

“For those who game on the Nintendo Switch, we’re still hard at work on the port, but in order to do justice to the game and make it into the great experience Switch players deserve, our team needs more time,” Apex Game Director Chad Grenier confirmed, on October 23.

“This year has brought on unexpected new challenges, to put it mildly, and we don’t want to rush anything out,” the Respawn dev continued, “Switch owners can expect to get their hands on Apex Legends next year.”

EA
Apex Legends will be on all the major consoles in early 2021.

While it is being delayed, he confirmed that it still arrive with all of the expected features, “of course, when Apex Legends does launch on Switch, it’ll come with support for cross-platform play, our latest seasonal content, and full feature parity with the other versions of the game.”

This won’t be the first time a major battle royale comes to Nintendo Switch. EA and Apex Legends are going to compete against Epic Games and Fortnite for the many battle royale fans on the platform.

The initial announcement was a longtime coming. Reports for a Nintendo Switch port have been around for about as long as Apex Legends has been released to the world.

In a 2019 interview only months after Apex’s release, Project lead at the time, Drew McCoy, said that the company knew a Nintendo port was on many people’s wishlist. Since then, it’s been a waiting game for Nintendo fans who have been waiting to get into the Arena.

Respawn Entertainment
Players from all walks of consoles will be able to drop into Apex Legends soon.

There were a lot of questions revolving around the technical limitations of the Switch that would be a hurdle for a port, but the developers are now committed to releasing it early in 2021.

It’s unclear what the download size for the Switch version will be, so stay tuned to Dexerto for all the latest information on the upcoming Apex Legends port.
