By Heidi Nicholas,
EA and Respawn have announced the Grand Soiree Arcade Event for Apex Legends. It's apparently based on the Roaring Twenties, and will have seven modes, each lasting two days, new art deco-inspired cosmetics, and a Bonus Scoring Weekend. The Event begins next week, January 14th, and runs until January 28th. There'll also be a Bonus Scoring Weekend during it from January 17th until January 20th.

The seven modes will run as follows:
  • Gold Rush Duos, January 14th-15th: the event begins with Gold Rush Duos, a mode for gold weapons only.
  • LIVE. DIE. LIVE, 16th-17th: you'll automatically respawn on living squadmates.
  • Third-Person Mode, 18th-19th
  • Always be Closing, 20th-21st: you have to keep moving to avoid damage from a ring that never slows down
  • Armed and Dangerous on World's Edge, 22nd-23rd: this'll have shotguns and sniper rifles, and limited armour
  • King's Canyon After Dark, January 24th-25th
  • DUMMIEs Big Day, 26th-28th

There'll be art deco inspired cosmetics for a $5 price point, along with a mix of legendary skins, which will be rotating throughout the event. There's also six new Legendary skins being added to the core loot pool. They're also adding a new prize track system, in which challenges gets you points, and points gets you rewards. Each mode has three new challenges which have a total amount of 1000 points. EA say you don't have to check in every day, but that there will be a badge for trying out every type of mode. Lastly, there's a Bonus Scoring Weekend running from January 17th, 10am PT, until January 20th, 10am PT, where an extra set of challenges will be available for a total of 500 points.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
