Apex Legends Lost Treasures event is launching this week
A Big Apex Legends update is being released this week, which will include the new Lost Treasures event.
Developers Respawn Entertainment revealed its plans for Season 5 during EA Play last week, as well as news regarding Cross-Play and a Nintendo Switch version of the game.
And while gamers will have to wait a few more months before they can Apex Legends on Switch, or with friends on other platforms, the next Apex event is scheduled for this week.
Plenty has already been confirmed about the release, including details regarding what new skins are coming to the game.
APEX LEGENDS UPDATE NEWS AND LOST TREASURES RELEASE DATE
Respawn has confirmed that the Apex Legends Lost Treasures event has a release date set for Tuesday, June 23, 2020.
This will be packaged as a wider update, which will no doubt include other changes for PS4, Xbox, and PC.
When it comes to a launch time, the next Apex Legends update is expected to be available to download across all platforms by 8pm GMT.
There’s a good chance that it will be available before that time but it offers a rough guide on what to expect.
After the patch is downloaded, gamers will be able to join in on the Lost Treasures event, which includes a new limited-time mode, and a new Town Takeover.
The new Lost Treasures event runs into July
Other changes include:
- Exclusive Event Prize Track with two Legendary Weapon skins
- 24 Event Limited premium cosmetic available directly or through Lost Treasure Event Packs
- Introducing ‘Special Offers’ page featuring All new Rare skins and charms, Mirage Heirloom Set Preview
- Unlock all 24 Lost Treasures cosmetics during the event and unlock the Mirage Heirloom set for free
The latest news regarding the Lost Treasures event update can be found below:
LIMITED TIMED MODE – ARMED AND DANGEROUS EVOLVED
Longtime fans of Apex Legends will know Armed and Dangerous as our sniper/shotgun only mode, which we’re bringing back for Lost Treasures but with a twist.
First, the only armor available in the mode is Evo Armor, which players will drop with. This means that Blue, Purple, and Gold armor will not be available in Armed and Dangerous: Evolved, leaving players to battle it out to reach higher armor tiers like Blue, Purple, and Red.
We’re also removing Respawn Beacons from the map.
DEBUT OF NEW EQUIPMENT – MOBILE RESPAWN BEACONS
Armed and Dangerous Evolved will see the introduction of a new piece of loot: the Mobile Respawn Beacon. Use it to call down a miniature Respawn Beacon almost anywhere on the map, then use your squadmates Banner Card to bring them back to the fight. The Mobile Respawn Beacon deploys via satellite drop and needs landing clearance (much like Lifeline’s care package), and once it lands it’s first come, first served so make it count.
During the Lost Treasures collection event Mobile Respawn Beacons will only be available in Armed and Dangerous Evolved. Once the event is over they will be added to the regular Apex Legends loot pool across both Public and Ranked matches.
EXCLUSIVE EVENT PRIZE TRACK
We’ve seen great feedback about our event prize tracks and we’re happy to be bringing an all new one for the Lost Treasures Event, pictured below.
As with before, you’ll be able to earn up to 1000 points per challenge set and the challenge set will refresh at a daily rate. Plus, you’ll still be able to complete your battle pass challenges at the same time too.
INTRODUCING SPECIAL OFFERS TAB
New to this event we’re introducing a second ‘SpecialOffers’ tab. This page introduces 7 additional cosmetics at a lower price point of 500 Apex Coins. These are event limited so they will not be eligible to return for at least another 6 months; however, these items do not count towards your 24 item collection. They will be available for the duration of the event.
