Apex Legends event trailer shows map changes, bonus XP weekend, more

Apex Legends Iron Crown Collection event trailer leak

The Iron Crown Collection event begins in Apex Legends today, introducing the game’s first-ever Solo mode. It also brings a ton of new stuff in the form of cosmetics, challenges and map changes. And, as is becoming a tradition with Apex, a lot of it was revealed early and possibly by accident.

Apex’s new cosmetics

The official Iron Crown Collection Apex Legends trailer dropped on Nvidia’s official United Arab Emirates Twitter account a good three hours before it did anywhere else. It’s not clear whether this was a deliberate leak. It’s just as likely that this was an official launch video that came out a couple of hours ahead of schedule. Either way, the trailer shows a ton of new content and changes coming to the game.

As you can see in the trailer below, almost all legends get event-specific, Medieval-styled skins. Bloodhound will either get an heirloom set, or their new skin has a custom melee weapon. Either way, they wield a vicious-looking, super-heating axe in the trailer. We figured they were next in line for an heirloom, but we were shooting for a machete.

Daredevil arena

The event also changes at least one part in Kings Canyon. The area between Thunderdome and Airbase will upgrade to a mix between a gladiatorial arena and a stadium. The space is reshaped and more open, with sports ramps and obstacles all over. You’ll also find flaming hoops to jump through.

Apex‘s new arena seems to be a nod to legend Octane and his background as a reckless stunt-performer. Considering the main feature of the event is the Solo mode, we believe it will see a lot of action. Either way, it will likely not remain as a permanent part of the map.

Apex Legends Iron Crown Collection event skins leak

The Iron Crown Collection event begins today at 10:00 a.m. PT, and it ends on Aug 27. Aside from the new cosmetics and map changes, it will feature limited event challenges. Apex Legends will also have a bonus XP weekend between Aug 16 and 18.
