Apex Legends’ Grand Soirée Arcade event is scheduled to kick-off on January 14, which will see an emphatic return of Kings Canyon and duos, while third-person mode is set to make its debut.

Following Respawn’s announcement of the final limited-time event for Season 3, fans are hyped for what’s to come.

The Grand Soirée Arcade trailer teases seven different game modes which are integral to the event, but there are three modes in particular that have left players looking forward to January 14.

EAGet suited and booted for the ‘Roaring Twenties,’ as Pathfinder welcomes the Grand Soirée Arcade Event.

Duos is making a return!

A play on the game’s Golden tier weapon system, ‘Gold Rush Duos’ is bringing the sought after game mode back into the Apex Games, but with a canny twist. The crux of the mode is that every weapon on World’s Edge will be decked out with Legendary-tier attachments. 

Meaning that you will be able to rock a fully kitted Charge Rifle and beam opponents across the map, or pray that you can get your hands on a Mastiff and Kraber combination which will prove devastating both at up-close and at distance. 

Duos will kick-start the event on January 14-15, after which the ‘LIVE.DIE.LIVE’ game mode will take precedence.

EASharpen up your Kraber skills, as this weapon will prove deadly in Gold Rush Duos on the sniper’s paradise that is World’s Edge!

Third-person mode in Apex Legends

Third-person modes have been previously leaked to make their way into the Apex Games. However, the Grand Soirée Arcade event is bringing the eagerly anticipated mode into the playlist rotation for two days. 

If you’re itching to get stuck into Apex Legends’ third-person mode, you won’t have to wait long, as it’s scheduled to arrive after the LIVE.DIE.LIVE mode — meaning that it will run January 18-19

While fluid, first-person gameplay is crucial to Respawn’s flagship title, it’ll be interesting to see how the in-game mechanics weigh-up to its battle royale counterpart, Fortnite. Heck, some players are already preparing for a ‘Longbow meta’ in the Firing Range.

Kings Canyon is back… but different

Arguably the most requested feature on the Apex Legends subreddit, Kings Canyon is set to make its emphatic return — but not as you’ve seen it before. 

Titled ‘Kings Canyon After Dark,’ Respawn is welcoming back the Apex Games’ staple arena in the same setting as the Fight or Fright event took place. 

Yes, that’s right. Kings Canyon will be played at night. After Dark is scheduled to take place from January 24-25 as the limited-time event’s penultimate game mode.

EAKings Canyon’s eerie night setting brought Revenant to the Apex Games. Will we see them make a return?

Pathfinder’s Grand Soirée Arcade event will also bring a host of cosmetics and more game modes for players to dabble in.

With the recent arrival of Season 7, Apex Legends fans are jumping into Olympus with all of their favorite Legends. One voice actor of the non-binary Bloodhound recently shared what they sound like prior to vocal edits.

Arriving alongside the launch of Apex Legends back in 2019, Bloodhound was one of the first Legends available for players to utilize in matches. Billed as a legendary hunter, this Technological Tracker is the first non-binary character in the hit battle royale.

As the Apex seasons have progressed, the character has become increasingly powerful and seen their popularity grown.

So, in a peek behind the scenes, the voice actor behind Bloodhound has revealed how they sound before Respawn adds a few tweaks to make it sound as it does now.

Bloodhound is, quite simply, one of Apex’s most popular legends.

The voice behind the mask

In a recent post to their TikTok account, voice actor Allegra Clark shared a clip of what the voice lines she records sound like prior to editing.

Stating that “what I do is only part of the vocal performance,” Clark details that a cool gas-mask vocal effect also pitches down her voice about two steps.

While the direction Allegra was originally given was that of an “androgynous, badass place,” she then goes on to share what Bloodhound’s iconic voice sounds like pre-editing. With a stark contrast to her regular voice, Clark’s vocal modulation and Icelandic/Old Norse accent instantly show off that recognizable cadence they have with their iconic lines.

The fans react

Shared on Reddit by IIIlandist, fans have been reacting to the non-binary character’s lines being heard without the filter.

One commenter stated: “when she said Mozambique here I felt that,” with another adding, “when she said Mozambique here I died.” Fans of the character were excited to hear how their vocal performance came about and seeing the effort of production that goes into creating the Legend.

It’s incredibly interesting seeing behind the scenes information regarding voice work and the like. This clip shared by Clark is no exception.
