New Limited-Time Mode Battle Armor Comes to Apex Legends Tomorrow

If you’re looking for an excuse to jump back into EA’s Apex Legends, you might finally have one this week: a new limited-time mode is coming to the game.

Called Battle Armor, it’s an event that will evolve over the next couple of weeks. It takes place on World’s Edge, and presents an interesting new twist on armour every few days.

Kicking off tomorrow, 28th April at 6pm BST/10am PDT, the event will run until Tuesday 12th May. It’s split into several rotations, and at every rotation, only one type of armour will be available. If you choose to play Battle Armor, you’ll begin with only that type of armour equipped (and a P2020).


Here’s the full schedule of Apex Legends’ latest event, courtesy of EA’s Answers HQ site:

Tuesday, April 28 @ 10am PDT  – Saturday, May 2nd @ 10am PDT: Level 1 (White) armor only.

Saturday, May 2 @ 10:01 am PDT – Wednesday, May 6 @ 10am PDT: Level 2 (Blue) armor

Wednesday, May 6 @ 10:01am PDT – Saturday, May 9 @ 10am PDT: Level 3 (Purple) armor. We expect to see some drawn out fights as everyone drops with some of the best armor in the game.

Saturday, May 9 @ 10:01 am PDT – Tuesday, May 12th @ 10am PDT (when Season 5 kicks off): Evo Armor only. Players have been asking for this since we introduced the concept of Evo Armor, so we’re particularly excited to see how this unfolds. And if you want a pro-tip from me: get in fights early, or you’ll be left limping into the final circle with Level 1 armor! We’re also turning on double Level XP for Top 5 finishes across all modes during this phase.

If you’re looking for a new way to enjoy Apex Legends‘ core gameplay, then Battle Armor might be for you. Don’t miss it when it kicks off tomorrow at 6pm BST. Read the full update from EA here.
