Apex Legends Introducing "Solos" Limited-Time Mode

Go it alone.


Apex Legends is changing the game for a limited time starting next week. The battle royale game has always been multiplayer-only, but for a while you can try to make a name for yourself all by yourself.

Respawn promoted the "Iron Crown Collection Event" on Twitter, teasing that the Solos mode will launch August 13 and end on August 27. A Reddit post from community manager Jay Frechette said that the team will be watching the community's reaction and gauging feedback to the new mode.

Now Playing: Apex Legends Solo Mode Is Actually Happening - GS News Update

"We'll talk more about Solos when it's live and you've had a chance to play it," Frechette said. "For now we're going to put it out there and see what happens and what kind of feedback we get."

This would appear to be the fulfillment of a recent promise during an earnings call to "deliver one of the most fan-requested features" in an August event. At the time the community suspected it could be a solos mode. This event is coming in-between seasons, as Season 3 is set to launch sometime before the end of September. In the same earnings call, EA CEO Andrew Wilson said Season 3 is "shaping up to be even bigger" than Season 2.

We're also expecting to see something else from Respawn in late September. The studio is planning to reveal a VR game at Oculus Connect, which is scheduled for September 25-26. Respawn has already said this isn't its "premium" Titanfall game, but that doesn't necessarily mean that this won't be set in the Titanfall universe. It has had success in expanding the universe with Apex Legends, so the studio may be planning to do it again.
