The developers of Battle Royale Apex Legends have announced a new lore-based event coming to the game next week. Called The Old Ways, it allows players to follow Bloodhound’s trail and learn of the brutal training that a scared youth must undergo to become a fearsome hunter.
Join the hunt in the next installment of our Stories from the Outlands short films, “The Old Ways.” In a village that has rejected the hubris of machines, a child is sent into the wilds in a lethal rite of passage. But they soon realize they are more hunted than hunter. Learn the truth of the Old Ways and see a scared youth become the fearsome Bloodhound.
- Duos & Kings Canyon – Starting on April 7, Duos will be permanently added to the game alongside Trios, along with a permanent map rotation that gives players the ability to play Duos or Trios on Kings Canyon and World’s Edge.
- Town Takeover – Bloodhound’s Trials – An enclosed area in the northwest portion of World’s Edge, Bloodhound’s Trials boasts a large population of prowlers. Teams can battle against a hoard of prowlers to claim high-tier loot as a reward. But players must beware of the most dangerous game: fellow Legends scavenging goods for themselves. Exploring the enclosure with a certain hunter on your side will be most rewarding.
- The Old Ways Exclusive Event Prize Track – With The Old Ways event, Respawn is delivering an all-new prize track with rewards inspired by the latest Stories from the Outlands: The Old Ways digital short. Similar to past events, players will be able to earn up to 1000 points per challenge set and the challenge set will refresh at a daily rate.
- Direct Purchase Shop – Event-exclusive legendary and rare skins inspired by the aesthetics and themes of The Old Ways digital short will be available in the shop. The Old Ways Event also marks the return of the Legendary Hunt Skins. All 8 of the original Legendary Hunt Skins will be on offer for direct purchase in addition to 2 recolored variants of the Wraith and R-301 skins that were exclusive to battle pass owners.
