Apex Legends Halloween Event Coming Soon, Teases Wallrunning

Apex Legends’ inaugural Halloween event Fight or Fright was a big success last year, particularly its zombie-themed limited-time mode Shadowfall, which turned killed players into zombie-like Shadows. This year, Fight or Fright is back from October 22 to November 3, and it’s got a new Shadow-themed mode that changes things up significantly.

While we don’t have all the details on this new mode as of yet, the trailer offers a tantalizing glimpse of it in action. Titled Shadow Royale, it appears to be a squads mode where dead players become Shadows as long as one of their teammates remains alive in their Legend form. It also appears that Shadows have the ability to wall-run Titanfall-style, a feature that fans have loudly requested since the launch of Apex.

According to the event trailer, Fight or Fright 2020 will bring the loot from last year’s event back into the fold, with recolored versions to enhance their spookiness. Fans have also noticed that the map appears to be the night-time version of King’s Canyon from last year, and from the trailer, it looks like Skull Town may be back for the moment.

Respawn recently revealed Apex Legends’ new character, Horizon, who is coming in Season 7. A new version of the game, Champions Edition, will launch alongside Season 7. For an asking price of $40, it unlocks each of the game’s 15 Legends and includes seven Legendary skins. Earlier this month, Respawn revised Wrath’s Naruto run to make her easier to hit, which irked certain segments of the game’s playerbase.
