Apex Legends: The New Update For Duos Mode Is Out Now

Just the two of us.


Apex Legends is finally getting a Duos mode, which will allow you to dive into the action with a single partner instead of as a part of a squad of three--though only for a short period this month. In a tweet, Respawn revealed that Duos mode will be added to the battle royale game on November 5, which is also the final day of Apex Legends' Fight or Fright event. [Update: Duos mode is out now alongside a broader Apex Legends update that makes balance changes and other tweaks; it also adds a firing range. You can check out the full patch notes for the full rundown on what's new and different.]

The mode will only be available for a limited time, but Respawn didn't say when it will be removed. This is similar to when Apex Legends introduced a highly requested Solos mode back in August. Apex Legends' emphasis on teamwork and communication is what initially deterred Respawn from deviating away from the standard three-person setup, but with the success of Solos and the current Halloween-themed Shadowfall game mode, the developer is clearly more willing to branch out and offer different experiences, if only for a limited time.
