What to Expect From Apex Legends’ Arena Mode?
Apex Legends’ Arena Mode was first discovered within the game’s code back in January. According to the leaks, the new mode will be a permanent addition to the game instead of a limited-time event which the game is known for. It has a position next to the Play and Ranked Leagues in the UI which suggests that Respawn wants to create more game modes within Apex.
Arenas will be skirmish-style modes with two teams of three fighting it out with each other in the existing maps. It is likely that the maps will be downsized or players will load into restricted areas within the maps to battle it out. Most of the points of interest that exist in the game will be used as maps as revealed in the datamined information.
Respawn Entertainment has also promised more Titanfall 2 content in the coming months. Ash is a recurring character from Titanfall 2 The game’s newest legend Valkyrie is also connected to Titanfall 2 villain Viper. We can expect Arena mode and future content to bridge the gap between TF2 and Apex’s lore over the coming seasons.
