Respawn Confirms Apex Legends' Shadowfall Halloween Event

By Alistair Jones on at

Respawn has confirmed Apex Legends' Halloween event. Last night, the developer introduced the Fight or Fright event and its terrifying Shadowfall game mode, confirming details that were datamined last week. At the start of each match, 35 players will drop into a night-time version of King’s Canyon, and when they die, they respawn as a member of the undead ‘Shadow Squad’.

Zombies aren’t allowed guns or abilities, but have increased movement and jump speed, as well as a high-damage melee attack, and if you’re ‘killed’, you’ll respawn via skydive. The battle continues until there are only ten living Legends left, who'll have to fight off the Shadow Squad until an evac ship arrives. The event begins on October 15, and will run until November 5.
