Respawn and EA have revealed Apex Legends new, time-limited events – Genesis. It will run for two weeks, from June 29 to July 13. During the Genesis Collection event, Legends will return to original maps for Kings Canyon (including Skull Town) and World’s Edge. Skull Town will also be an arena map during the event, along with 24 new cosmetic items to unlock.
- Kings Canyon and the World’s Edge are back – Season zero (Kings Canyon) and season three (World’s Edge) make a visit for a limited time, together with trio and duo queues with rotation intervals of one hour. Players can celebrate with these iconic maps and hot drops in Kings Canyon, Skull Town. Get more loot on the train, while it shines through Capital City for a period before Harvester, or indulge in epic multi-team battles in Fuel Depot.
- Skull Town is coming to Arenas – Skull Town will be added to the arena archive and will be part of the rotation during the Genesis Collection. Players can take advantage of a lot of places on this map for all that tactics and destruction means.
- Rewards Track – Genesis Collection comes with a ‘rewards track’ with brand new cosmetic items available, including Charge Rifle and EVA-8 weapon skins. Players can earn 1,600 points a day with various challenges that are updated daily during the event. There are also slightly longer challenges that extend over a longer period of time (but during the event). There will also be 24 team-based, time-limited cosmetic items that can be purchased directly (for apex coins or crafting metals) and in apex packs throughout the event. If you collect all 24 items, unlock the Revenant Heirloom set.
- Balance sheet updates – Octane, Revenant, Lifeline, Bloodhound and Wattson all have updates on G. The arsenal will also get a balance for Spitfire, 30-30 Repeater and Longbow.
