Apex Legends Armor event update news
Developers Respawn Entertainment has confirmed that they will be launching their new Apex Legends event today, Tuesday, April 28. This will include the limited-time mode called Battle Armor and will be available until the week of Apex Legends Season 5. As confirmed by Respawn this week, the Battle Armor event takes place on World’s Edge and will feature a unique twist on the current gameplay available.
There will be different Armor cycles throughout the event and certain limitations put on what items are available.
Here’s more about the event from the Apex Legends development team:
“Throughout the last year, we’ve heard many fun ideas from our fans about different ways to play Apex Legends.
“One of my favourites has been suggested countless times, and even more so when we introduced the Evo Shields in The System Override Event.
“The Battle Armor event takes place on World’s Edge and will evolve over 14 days in the lead up to Season 5, with a new twist on armor every few days.
“Here’s how it’ll play out: during the event rotation only one armor type will be available, and players will drop into the match with it already equipped.
“Players will also drop with a P2020. All armor will be removed from the loot pool, but shield cells and batteries, as well as all the other sweet, sweet loot, will still be available (just not armor).
“The Battle Armor Event is just one way we are going to start experimenting with the core gameplay of Apex Legends, and we’re excited to introduce even more twists in Season 5 and beyond.”
APEX LEGENDS UPDATE TIME
The new event will come part of a new Apex Legends update, which is set to launch later today, April 28.
According to the schedule released by Respawn, the Apex Legends update time has been set for 6pm, GMT.
This is when the first the Battle Armor will be available to use, with the following event schedule for April and May:
Tuesday, April 28 @ 10am PDT – Saturday, May 2nd @ 10am PDT: Level 1 (White) armor only.
Saturday, May 2 @ 10:01 am PDT – Wednesday, May 6 @ 10am PDT: Level 2 (Blue) armor
Wednesday, May 6 @ 10:01am PDT – Saturday, May 9 @ 10am PDT: Level 3 (Purple) armor. “We expect to see some drawn out fights as everyone drops with some of the best armor in the game.”
Saturday, May 9 @ 10:01 am PDT – Tuesday, May 12th @ 10am PDT (when Season 5 kicks off): Evo Armor only.
“Players have been asking for this since we introduced the concept of Evo Armor, so we’re particularly excited to see how this unfolds. And if you want a pro-tip from me: get in fights early, or you’ll be left limping into the final circle with Level 1 armor! We’re also turning on double Level XP for Top 5 finishes across all modes during this phase.”
