We’ve always thought multiplayer games could with more booby-trapped arenas and Apex Legends looks set to deliver.
We remember playing World Heroes a lot in the arcades, not because it was a better technical brawler than Street Fighter II but because you could punch your enemy into an electric fence, spikes and so on. There was even an arena that spawned land-mines mid-match.
Apex Legends’ Thrillseekers event won’t have teleporting land-mines but it will have a floor that can turn to lava, making the arena itself another foe to be wary of. The new arena, dubbed “Overflow”, is a key part of the event, which will also offer various rewards. You’ll be able to earn gun charms and skins including the Legendary Rampart Skin.
So how do you get involved? You need to play Apex Legends, for a start, but the good news, if you weren’t already aware, is that this multiplayer competitive FPS is free across the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. Then you need to leap into the event which runs July 13th to August 3rd. You can check out the trailer below for a peek at the upcoming foot-singeing mayhem.
