New Year 2021 brings a brand new Fight Night Collection event to Apex Legends. It includes a new LTM game mode, rewards, cosmetics, and bug fixes, and patch notes. The new events will kick off on 5 January.
Airdrop Escalation Takeover
The Airdrop Escalation is a new LTM game mode. It’s the same as a regular battle royal with tons of supply drops. You will find them on the map right after the launch and more supply drops will hit the ground with each round.
Supply drops contain fully-kitted weapons. The rarity of the weapon is based on round. Besides normal weapons and loot will still available in this mode. Additionally this time there isn’t going to be a separate game mode instead, it will takeover classic battle royal mode.
Pathfinder Town Takeover
