Apex Legends probably isn’t the game you think of when you’re talking about Christmas. Getting together in groups of three to kill every other team around me for ultimate victory isn’t what I think about anyway. But this month it can be, because a Christmas event is coming to the game that will help you get into the festive mood. There’s a trailer for the event below, so check that out and read on below for more details.
Mirage’s Holo-Day Bash
There’s actually quite a lot to this event, so much so that I think I’ll be downloading the game again just to take part in some of the new stuff. Top of the list of time-limited content is, of course, Christmas skins and other cosmetics, such as voice lines or finishers. These are some of my favourite things in free-to-play games, because they’re only available for a short period of time, but you can use them all year round, showing them off to anyone who wasn’t lucky enough to get their hands on something like a ridiculous Christmas robot skin for Pathfinder.
Much like every other in-game event Apex Legends has seen, Holo-Day Bash brings a new game mode for players to prat about it. For Christmas it’s the Winter Express, and it looks incredible. This mode is a king of the hill take on battle royale, but the point that teams need to capture is the moving train in World’s Edge. Teams need to hold the train to score points, and win once they’ve scored enough. Wining three rounds will see a team crowned champions. Since you can respawn multiple times in this game mode, it’s a fair bit more accessible than the core game mode, particularly if you’re playing with those who call themselves pros.
Of course, the whole of Apex Legends’ map has been completely revamped for Mirage’s Holo-Day Bash too. Mirage has customised a bunch of stuff for you to enjoy, the best of which is a dropship full of his holograms, at least it is in the trailer. As far as Christmas content goes, this is some of the best we’ve reported on so far. The fact that all of this is free makes it really worthwhile, because you’ve already spent enough money in the lead up to Christmas on others, I’d assume.
