A new Apex Legends event is kicking off tomorrow (3 September) focusing on everyone’s favourite interdimensional Legend, Wraith. The Apex Legends Voidwalker event will run from 3 to 17 September, so it is a two-week-long event and according to developer Respawn Entertainment, this themed event will feature “lots of awesome content” for players to enjoy.
First up, the event should kick off at roughly 21:00 South African time on 3 September and a double XP weekend is also scheduled to kick off on 6 September at the same time. This double XP weekend will run until 9 September at the same time, where players will be able to earn double XP for top-five finishes and wins. This bonus will count towards both Battle Pass progression and Account level.
The Apex Legends Voidwalker event brings a limited-time mode, a town takeover and, of course, exclusive skins and Wraith-themed content for players to earn or purchase.
Here’s a shortlist of what you can expect to see during the Apex Legends Voidwalker event.
- Wraith town takeover
- Limited-time mode – Armed and Dangerous
- Exclusive event challenges
- Direct Purchase Shop
Respawn shared more info on each of the Apex Legends Voidwalker event features, which you can read about below.
Wraith Town Takeover
Syndicate construction crews have unearthed part of a decayed Project: Wraith facility in Kings Canyon. Jump in to discover for yourself the mysterious remains of the research site, including a functional prototype portal that can be used to get an early jump on the base – or to escape and reinitiate skydive. And be sure to keep an eye out for other hidden lore details.
Limited-Time Mode: Armed and Dangerous
In the same spirit of Wraith’s escape, we’re introducing a brand new LTM, Armed and Dangerous, where weapons are limited to snipers and shotguns while overall loot is much harder to come by. As with previous modes, keep on the lookout for in-game surveys and let us know your feedback. We’re planning to roll out more of these modes in the future, so your thoughts are much appreciated!
Event Challenges with Free Loot
Complete a variety of challenges to earn exclusive skins and Wraith-themed content. All challenges and rewards will be limited to the two-week event.
Direct Purchase Shop
As a tie into the short, we’re adding a set of themed cosmetics such as the Voidwalker Wraith Legendary, which includes a custom character select animation.
New to this event we’re introducing lower price point items; outside of the legendary skin and frame, all themed cosmetics are $5. These items are Event Limited, so they will be eligible to return six months after the event ends on September 17. During the Voidwalker themed event they will rotate through the in-game store on the following schedule:
In addition to these cosmetics, we are adding six new legendary items to the core loot pool which can be crafted or obtained through packs. As a limited event promotion, each of these items will also receive a first look offer in the direct purchase store.
