Fright for your life
Apex Legends fans, it’s time to get into the spooky spirit. EA and Respawn have announced that the Fight or Fright event is returning on Oct. 4th, 2022, and it’ll offer 4 weeks of scary-good content. You can get the full details on what this year’s event has to offer below.
Shadow Royale returns this season. Take a trip in this terrifying twist of Trios, where any killed Legend respawns in SHADOW FORM. Shadows can run on walls, double jump, revive allies, and deliver extra melee damage. Other Shadows fall with one punch, and their living teammates aren’t far behind. Shadows, both friends and foes, endlessly spawn until their entire squad is eliminated.
This time around, Revenant haunts a new realm for your nightmares. A blood moon hangs over the city in the sky. Walk through the dark streets, Fight in the FRIGHT NIGHT arena, and banish legends to the shadow realm in OLYMPUS AFTER DARK.
