Respawn has revealed the next major event that will be taking place in Apex Legends and it is called Fight or Fright, in the spirit of Halloween. Fight or Fright will be a Collection event which means it is an event with a limited-time mode and has specific challenges in which cosmetics can be earned. The limited-time mode during this event is Shadowfall.
In Shadowfall the Kings Canyon map will have a night setting and it will feature up to 35 players. Yes, it is smaller than normal but there’s a twist to this solo battle royale. Should your character be killed they will respawn as a member of the Shadow Squad. Shadow Squad characters don’t have access to weapons or abilities but have increased movement speed and a very powerful melee attack. When there are only ten living players left they have to work together to get to the evacuation zone while fighting back against the Shadow Squad. It won’t be easy as Shadow Squad members have unlimited respawns.
The key features are below.
