Some new leaks have revealed brand new details about the upcoming Apex Legends ‘War Games’ event, including the starting date, and available rewards.

Apex Legends Season 8 had a memorable launch and received a ton of brand new content through the Chaos Theory, and Anniversary Collection events. We saw the arrival of new skins, game modes, heirlooms, and more.

We can expect Respawn Entertainment to add even more new content, as there are still plenty of other events planned for this season. One of these is called War Games, and a few Apex data miners have revealed what will be in them.

When is the Apex Legends War Games event?

War Games sounds similar to the previously leaked Warlord event, which may have been what eventually became Chaos Theory. Thanks to notable leaker Shrugtal, we know when this event will start.

It’s not too far away, as it’s expected to go live at some point during April. The data miner predicted that it will last from April 13 to April 27. However, he mentions that it’s entirely possible for it to start at a much later date.

War Games skins, cosmetics and rewards

This event will mainly bring a collection of new cosmetics to the battle royale, so we shouldn’t expect some major map changes or a new heirloom.

A few of these new skins were recently leaked ahead of time, and now we have the prize track as well. It will reportedly include five Battle Pass levels, two charms, an epic Rampart skin, epic 30-30 Repeater skin, rare Crypto skin, and Caustic stat trackers.

Apex Legends War Games LTMs

War Games will introduce multiple new game modes to Apex Legends. The leaks indicate that there will be six which rotate on a 48-hour basis. The ones listed include Killing Tim, Flare Up, Armed Drop, Armor Regen, Auto Banners, and Second Chance.

Killing Time will make things feel more intense by shortening the Ring time, so you’ll be forced to stay on the move during mass elimination. Armed Drop starts you off with a loadout, so you’ll get to hop right into the action.

These seem interesting, and we’re curious about how they will affect the battle royale’s meta. Hopefully, we’ll see get even more details from the developers themselves soon enough.

With April not too far away, we’ll keep checking for updates, and will inform you of anything new that learn about the Apex Legends War Games event.

Apex Legends devs respond to criticism by adding cheaper Apex Coins option

Respawn Entertainment have responded to player feedback by introducing a cheaper Apex Coins option in the game.

Apex coins in Apex Legends

In response to complaints from Apex Legends players about the high cost of Apex Coins, Respawn Entertainment have added a cheaper currency pack option to the game.

Apex Coins are the premium currency in Apex Legends that can you purchase with real money and then spend in order to get your hands on new cosmetic items for your Legends and weapons.

You may have to purchase bigger currency packs in order to get yourself certain items, and the Apex Legends community has been frustrated with the high cost of these. Now, the devs have responded to this issue.

Apex Legends Coin pack options

Apex Legends players that don’t have enough currency to unlock a specific item end up having to spend a lot on bigger currency packs.The cheapest bundle that you could get contained 1,000 Apex Coins and would set you back $9.99.

This can be particularly frustrating if you only need to use a small portion of the Apex Coins in the pack. Now, Respawn and EA have addressed this problem by adding the option to purchase currency packs with a 500 coin bundle for $4.99.

Now, you’ll be able to get yourself a decent number of Apex Coins without having to spend an extremely large amount of cash. Players that only need 400 Apex Coins to buy something, and no longer need to spend a whole $10 to do so.

The addition of this option will come as a huge relief to players that were tired of paying for currency that they didn’t need for an insanely high cost.

At the time of writing, the Apex Legends developers haven’t officially announced this change, but the arrival of this cheaper currency pack shows that they were listening to community feedback.

When did Apex Legends come out?

Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royales in the world, but when did it come out? Here’s everything you need to know about the game’s original release date.

From PUBG to Fortnite, Apex Legends to Warzone, the battle royale genre has truly dominated the gaming scene for the last five years. In fact, the mode has become so important to shooters that games that launch without one are viewed as missing a vital component.

Each battle royale brings its own spin to the genre, capturing the imagination of players looking for new experiences. For Fortnite, building set it apart from its opponents, while Warzone’s use of class loadouts made it different from anything else on the market.

For Apex Legends, the use of characters with special and unique abilities meant that nothing else on the market could match its high-octane action, and unsurprisingly, thousands still jump on and play years after its launch. But when did Apex Legends actually release?

Respawn Entertainment have dropped a new patch for Apex Legends Season 13, which includes a variety of changes and even interactive objects for Lifeline’s Town Takeover.

In addition to the ranked split which occurred on June 28, Apex Legends has received a brand-new patch for Season 13, bringing a variety of bug fixes and updates to the game.

The Apex Legends 1.99 patch is small, but for those who are interested, here are the patch notes for the update.

Lifeline’s Clinic Easter Egg

This patch is very small, and Respawn Entertainment haven’t actually revealed patch notes for what the update actually brought to the game. However, thanks to dataminer Kralindo, we have information on what the update has done.

One of the most interesting changes in the patch is the addition of interactive objects in Lifeline’s Town Takeover.

In Lifeline’s Clinic, players can now play the drums, guitar, and more. Interacting with these objects will play audio, which is a little Easter Egg for Lifeline’s previous occupation as a punk band drummer, hence her drum sticks Heirloom.

Apex Legends 1.99 patch notes

Although there are no official patch notes for the Apex Legends 1.99 patch, luckily Kralindo has gone through the game’s code and figured out some of the changes.

There may be more changes server-side, but here are all the changes Kralindo managed to see:

  • Some small Newcastle tactical changes, most likely bug fixes
  • Lifeline town takeover interactive objects activated
  • 500 Apex Coins enabled in the store (via playlist)
  • Really small change for the Replicator

That’s all for the Apex Legends Season 13 1.99 patch. For more, check out how the ranked reset works.
