The sun rises on a fresh experience
Join Respawn and EA in celebrating the dawn of a new year in the Celestial Sunrise Collection Event! The team is introducing a new limited-time mode that will put your skills to the test called Hardcore Royale, and our reward track is packed with great cosmetics to unlock including the new Reactive Peacekeeper!
It’s time to bring your A-Game to the ultimate test of the Apex Games. Hardcore Royale is much like Trios, but with some fun changes that will make information sharing amongst your squad critical. Make sure to count your shots, and always keep the Ring in mind. Let’s break down what to expect when you drop.
Armor is restricted to white armor only, and can’t be upgraded through dealing damage, crafting, or looting. While this makes it easier to take down your enemies, keep in mind you’ll be just as vulnerable. Helmets have also been removed making headshots more lethal/rewarding. Pick your fights carefully, Legend. Or it could all be over in the blink of an eye. Additional gameplay changes for Hardcore Royale are listed below.
Hardcore Royale Changes:
- Limited HUD
- White Armor Only
- No Helmets
- Armor doesn’t spawn in Deathboxes (No Armor Swapping)
- Ring starts at max Damage
Like Ranked, Hardcore Royale will be LIMITED to Accounts Level 20 and above. So be sure to level up your account before it drops to get in on the intense action. Hardcore Royale will not be a takeover, meaning regular trios will still be available during it’s run. Two more Limited Time Modes will be coming to the Apex Games after the Collection event!
CELESTIAL SUNRISE COLLECTION EVENT ITEMS
Unlock 24 enchanting limited-time cosmetics, with Legendary skins for Octane, Pathfinder, Caustic, Ash and more! All 24 items will be available in exchange for Apex Coins or Crafting Metals and in Celestial Sunrise Event Apex Packs for the entire duration of the event.
If you unlock them all before the event ends, you’ll automatically receive “Jadeite Retribution”, a new Reactive Peacekeeper Skin!
You can earn up to 1,600 points per day and challenges refresh daily. All these challenges also stack with your Battle Pass so you can complete multiple challenges at once.

COMING SOON: DATE NIGHT (DUO’S TAKEOVER)
Following the conclusion of Celestial Sunrise on Feb 7th, get ready for a fun LTM called Date Night. It’s time to queue up with that special someone and become the Apex Game’s cutest couple.
Date Night includes a new healing mechanic exclusive to the takeover. Using any healing item will show an area around your Legend. If your Duos partner is in the area when you finish the heal, they’ll also receive the effects of the item! Heal your partner to spread the love, and don’t forget to say thank you!
Date Night also includes a Limited Time Weapon, The Heart Stealer. This is a romantic variant of the Bocek, which heals you a percentage of the damage you do. Just like Healing items; any healing from the bow is also given to your Partner if they’re close by!
