Apex Legends March 29 Update Brings Back "Control" for a Limited Time

Apex Legends March 29 Update EA

Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale shooter game where players have one objective: to be the last one standing. In this update, developers are bringing back the 9v9 Control Mode, lasting for two weeks along with the Warriors Collection event.


For players who missed out on Control in the past, look no further. The 9v9 limited-time event is back in this update. Since there are fewer players in this mode, the map is smaller to make the game mode fast-paced. Players will have to take control of Olympus, Storm Point, and Kings Canyon to win the game. Be wary of Kings Canyon because players can use the terminal inside the lab to increase the toxin levels, which isn't fun for attackers trying to capture the area.

Warriors Collection Event Items

Developers introduced a brand new cosmetic collection that consists of 24 limited-time items. These items can be purchased using Apex Coins or Crafting Materials. Those who get all 24 items will receive the Biwon Blade, which is Crypto’s new heirloom.
