Apex Legends’ Voidwalker event is set to go live today and Respawn is setting the scene with a new “Stories from the Outlands” short animated film.
Voidwalker is based around the playable Legend Wraith, and this latest animated film really is fantastically produced. The art and voice acting is top-notch and provides an awesome tone piece for the upcoming event by highlighting Wraith’s origins story.
Check it out below:
Here’s what we know about the actual event via Respawn’s patch notes:
Wraith Town Takeover
- Syndicate construction crews have unearthed part of a decayed Project: Wraith facility in Kings Canyon. Jump in to discover for yourself the mysterious remains of the research site, including a functional prototype portal that can be used to get an early jump on the base – or to escape and reinitiate skydive. And be sure to keep an eye out for other hidden lore details.
Limited-Time Mode: Armed and Dangerous
- In the same spirit of Wraith’s escape, we’re introducing a brand new LTM, Armed and Dangerous, where weapons are limited to snipers and shotguns while overall loot is much harder to come by.
- As with previous modes, keep on the lookout for in-game surveys and let us know your feedback. We’re planning to roll out more of these modes in the future.
Event Challenges with Free Loot
- Complete a variety of challenges to earn exclusive skins and Wraith-themed content. All challenges and rewards will be limited to the two-week event.
Voidewalker will go live some time today, running through until Sept. 17.
