The new event will also come with a new Limited time mode called Shadowfall. The launch of new map – World’s Edge was a welcome change but, players also wanted Kings Canyon back. While the devs cleared that they will be monitoring the data from the new map and will then decide to bring back the old map or not.

But the new mode will bring back the Kings Canyon with a bit of a twist. The details from the devs about the new limited time mode are as follows –

Darkness descends on Kings Canyon in Shadowfall, a warped version of the Apex games hosted by a mysterious figure.

At the start of a match, you and 34 other solo players will drop into an eerily-lit Kings Canyon and fight to the death… with a dark twist. Once you die you will respawn as an undead version of your Legend and join the powerful “Shadow Squad”.

As part of the Shadow Squad, you will lose your ability to use weapons and your legend abilities will be stripped, but in return, you will be given increased movement and jump speed, along with a brutal melee attack. You’ll also have the ability to scale walls and be given unlimited respawns via skydive.

The battle rages until there are only ten living Legends left, who must then join forces and make it to an evac ship while the Shadow Squad attempts to stop them at all costs.

The new mode looks spooky and has all the players excited. The event also comes with a set of exclusive challenges and rewards as well. Take a look at the events and the legendary skins here –
