GameSpot - Respawn Announces Major Twist On Apex Legends Halloween Event


Recommended Posts

It's that time of year again--the breeze is cooling, the leaves are falling, and Apex Legends is hosting its fourth annual Halloween event, Fight or Fright. Much about this event is the same as it's always been--players will have the opportunity to play the Shadow Royale LTM on a Halloween-ified version of a popular map, creepy cosmetics will be available in the store, and Revenant will be up to his usual spooky hijinks. But this season, there's one major difference: Confirming last week's leaks, the even trailer revealed that, for the first time in Apex Legends history, Shadow Royale will be played on a new map: Olympus After Dark.

The spookiest season is upon us 😈
Fight or Fright returns for four straight weeks of tricks and treats. Join in on this ghoulishly good time starting Oct 4 when Shadow Royale returns to Olympus After Dark.

The Shadow realm is referred to as the "Beta plane" and appears to be a significant location in Apex's lore.
