Limited Time Mode – Winter Express
Three squads compete to capture the World’s Edge train, decked out in its holiday best, as it moves from station to station. For Winter Express, the path of the train is fixed to a smaller radius in order to ensure you’re never too far from all the action.
In Winter Express, each Legend comes with a custom, pre-determined loadout – no looting necessary here. Want to try something different? Eliminated players will respawn every round and can select different Legends to play mid-match. Explore different squad comps based on what your opponents are doing to hold the capture point. First to three captures wins!
Loadouts rotate daily, so log in often and play new combinations.
