EA and Respawn have announced that Apex Legends will be getting an all-new Unshackled Event from next week, featuring the return of the limited-time Flashpoint mode, new cosmetic items, and more besides. The event commences this coming Tuesday, and will run for two weeks.
Flashpoint mode removes healing items from the loot pool, replacing them with large ‘Flashpoint Zones’ that heal any Legends stood within their radius. Alongside the return of Flashpoint, to unique weekly challenges will enable you to unlock event-themed cosmetics, with week one offering a unique badge, epic charm, epic Re-45 skin, and Epic Seer Skin.
Week two will then offer another unique badge, rare Apex Pack, epic Boxing Nessie Holospray, and Unshackled Pack. Forty Unshackled themed cosmetics will also be available, including Legendary skins like ‘Machine Language’ Crypto, ‘Bad Bot’ Pathfinder, ‘Quantum Collision’ Wraith, ‘Slingshot’ Valkyrie, ‘Prison Pacifier’ CAR, ‘Terminated’ Hemlok, ‘Digging the Grave’ Peacekeeper, and ‘Pyromania’ Rampage.
A thematic event tab will make finding Unshackled content easier, while Unshackled Packs are also available to purchase, unlocking cosmetics, weapon charms, trackers, and more. The Unshackled Event will go live in Apex Legends: Defiance from 19th April, running until 3rd May. You can find out more here.
