The Apex Legends anime event kicks off this week with the release of the Awakening Collection across PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
New skins have already been shared by the development team, and while the collection’s official name (Awakening) has been confirmed, many see it as a heavily anime-inspired set of designs.
Aside from the new skins, developer Respawn has also confirmed that a new city takeover will feature a notable map change on Olympus, as well as a host of other behind-the-scenes changes.
And fans have also been warned that Control Mode will be back in the mix, but only for the few weeks that Awakening will be available in-game.
When is the Apex Legends anime event?
Respawn Entertainment has confirmed that it will update its popular battle royale experience with the Apex Legends Anime (Awakening) event on Tuesday, June 21, 2022. The Apex update rollout is expected to begin at the usual time of 6pm BST or 10am PDT if you live in North America. Patch notes have already been released, which means we know exactly what’s going to change in the game, including tweaks made to the tried and true mode.
As confirmed earlier this month, Control returns with some notable changes to the usual formula, with World’s Edge joining the rotation with Olympus and Storm Point. New features coming with the Awakening event include the following items:
- Introduce Ad Drones to Control for flavor and storytelling purposes, but yes, you can shoot them down too.
- Matchmaking Improvement – Fill missing player slots with new players at the start of Control to prevent unbalanced matches.
- Added tabs to the info screen – visible in the lobby and accessible in control matches.
- One of the new tabs contains a breakdown of the rating values.
- The other has a breakdown of how the spawn system works.
This week’s Apex event will also add anime-themed cosmetics to the game, including a brand new set of 24 themed limited-time cosmetics, including fresh legendary skins like Horizon’s Atom Heart Mother, Fuse’s Animal Instinct, Ash’s Existential threat” and more.
Respawn has confirmed that all 24 items will be available via direct purchase (for Apex Coins or crafting metals) and in Awakening Event Apex Packs for the duration of the event.
The official theme of this event is Monsters vs. Mechs, and with so many new designs up for grabs, it’s well worth racking up that many points by completing daily missions, totaling 1,600 by the end date in July points are available.
