When does Control return to Apex Legends?

Control has quickly become one of Apex Legends’ most popular modes, but when is it coming back, and could it be made permanent?

When Respawn Entertainment added the Control LTM at the start of Apex Legends Season 12, and few could have predicted how popular it would become. Unfortunately, the mode has been removed for the time being.

Apex Legends Season 12 featured major Legend changes, weapon buffs and nerfs, and updates to Olympus. Despite all that, the Control LTM was the most popular addition by far.

The 9v9 mode sees teams fight to capture three control points found on the map, with respawns enabled, unlike normal battle royale.

Since this was a Limited-Time Mode, it’s no surprise that it’s gone, but as it returned once more with the Warriors Collection Event, it’s clear that the devs intend to continue bringing it back.

When is Control coming back to Apex Legends?

Currently, there is no official release date for Control’s return to the battle royale.

As the Apex Legends Warriors Collection Event ended on April 12, Control was also removed from the game at the same time. Players were able to enjoy two weeks of the LTM, which was released alongside the event.

The LTM had even been updated and given a new map for fans to enjoy, Caustic Treatment from Kings Canyon.

Although it may be disappointing to hear that it has been removed again, Apex Legends Season 13 may bring the mode back once again, or maybe even some new team-based modes, like Apex Legends Mobile’s Team Deathmatch.

Why was Control removed from Apex Legends?

Control is a limited-time mode, which means that the mode is only available for a certain amount of time before it is removed from the game.

Control was available for three weeks at the start of Season 12, and another two when the Warriors Collection Event dropped. The fact that Control has returned twice now definitely implies that it has the potential to return once again, so don’t get too down about it being removed.

Will Control become a permanent Apex Legends mode?

Unfortunately, we just don’t know the answer to that, but at the moment, it seems unlikely. Respawn devs have constantly stated that it’s a Limited-Time Mode, and dropped no hints about it sticking around forever.

Still, if there is a big enough audience and fans continue to support the mode, there’s always a chance the devs could make it a permanent fixture of the game, especially as they seem pretty adamant about improving the mode with updates and bug fixes like in the 1.94 update.

The fact that Respawn updated the mode suggests that they have plans to bring it back once again, but no date has been confirmed for its return as of yet.


That’s everything we know about the return of Control, at least for the time being. We’ll be sure to keep this article updated with any information we get from Respawn.

An Apex Legends leaker has revealed potential plans for a Lifeline Town Takeover on Olympus, which could be seen in Season 13.

Apex Legends Season 13 saw some new additions to Storm Point, including the Downed Beast and IMC Armories that both hold some impressive loot. Having said that, players are yet to see a new Town Takeover since Big Maude was introduced on World’s Edge.

As well as two new events set for this season, new leaks are suggesting that Lifeline will be getting a Town Takeover in Season 13, which could be based on Olympus.

Rumors surrounding a new Town Takeover for Apex Legends Season 13 are circulating the community, with some even believing it may coincide with the leaked Collection Event.

Some leakers thought we would be getting a Bangalore Town Takeover on Storm Point this season, but as we already got the Downed Beast and the IMC Armories, it actually may be more likely that we will be seeing a new Town Takeover for a different map and Legend.

Reputable Apex Legends leaker Thordan Smash stated in a recent video that he now believes that we may see a Lifeline Town Takeover for Olympus in Season 13, stating that the Bangalore Town Takeover has potentially been “scrapped.”

Further, new quips were leaked from the game files mentioning a “Med Station,” and Lifeline has more quips mentioning this new concept than any other Legend. This suggests it may be specific to her, perhaps the Med Station is actually the name of her Town Takeover POI.

Apex Legends leaker Ezra-RC also leaked a version of Olympus that is code-named “LTT” in the files. Many believe this could stand for Lifeline Town Takeover, however, nothing is confirmed as of yet, and the map is just the Season 12 version of Olympus.

As more information is released we’ll be sure to update this piece and provide all the information.

Apex Legends Season 13 leaked Summer Event: Cosmetics, store takeover, more

Apex Legends dataminers have revealed new information about a potential summer-themed event for Season 13.

Apex Legends Season 13 could be getting a summer-themed event, as dataminers leak new details.

Apex Legends Season 13 has already offered a lot of new content for players and a new Ranked system to grind, which may improve your skill as a player.

Fans are always intrigued by leaked future content for the battle royale game, and it seems dataminers may have revealed a summer-themed event that could be arriving in Season 13.

What is Apex Legends’ Summer Event?

Apex Legends leaker Garret has revealed new leaked content that may imply a Summer Tiki event for Apex Legends in Season 13.

Not much is officially known about this event, but as Apex Legends usually gets a “Summer of Plunder” store sale, it’s likely that the devs will be doing something for the summer season.

In Garret’s video posted on May 19, the leaker revealed some unreleased summer-themed Weapon Charms found in the game’s files by dataminer HYPERMYST.

There seems to be a Tiki theme in the design of the charms, possessing tropical island flowers, an exotic fruit, bamboo, bright colors, a beach umbrella, and just an overall Hawaiian vibe.

Garret believes this either implies that we will either be getting a summer-themed event or a store takeover.

The dataminer also found some more interesting Weapon Charms that further indicate some sort of summer-themed takeover. One of these charms is called “Nessie Float” in the game’s files, which definitely shares a beach/summer theme.

Not much is confirmed about the event, but it’s clear that the devs are working on something summer-themed, whether it be a bundle, store takeover, or thematic event.

Thordan Smash believes the event will be a store takeover rather than a fully-fledged event, as leaker Ezra-RC revealed that “07/05” will mark the start of an “ALGS and Summer Store.” This date is not confirmed and may change, but it’s likely the summer-theme event will actually be a store takeover featuring new ALGS cosmetics and summer-themed skins.

The Apex Legends leaker also claims that the main cosmetic for this summer store will be a Valkyrie Streetwear bundle.

We already have leaked information on the Collection Event for Season 13, which is rumored to be called Awakened and has an Anime theme, so it’s likely that this summer event will not be a collection.

As more information is revealed about this potential Apex Legends summer event, we will be sure to update this piece, so stay tuned.
