Apex Legends' Next Event Is All About Fight Or Fright

Will you fight or fright?
Will you fight or fright? Respawn Entertainment

Apex Legends is more than ready to launch its newest limited time event. Titled Fight or Fright, the event begins this October 15 and ends on November 5. Players should be excited to know that a lot of new content is coming like a limited time mode that lets you experience Kings Canyon at night. There are also exclusive event challenges where players can earn free loot along with Halloween inspired Collection Event cosmetics, and a whole lot more.

Shadowfall Limited Time Mode

Shadowfall sees Kings Canyon descend into darkness. At the beginning of the match, 35 players drop in to what is an eerily-lit Kings Canyon and fight to the death. That's not all, as there is a rather dark twist. Any time a player dies, they respawn as an undead version of their Legend and join the "Shadow Squad."

Players who are part of this Shadow Squad cannot use weapons and even have their legend abilities removed. However they get both movement speed and jump speed increases. They even have the ability to scale walls as well as unlimited respawns through skydive. Making them even more dangerous is their brutal melee attack.

The battle continues until 10 living Legends are left. These remaining 10 players then need to work as a team and try to make it to an evac ship. All the while the Shadow Squad is going to stop them from escaping.

Event Challenges

During the limited time event, players need to complete different challenges in order to get free exclusive skins and even two Legendary Weapon Skins. Challenges include:
