Seven Rotating Limited-Time Modes
We’re kicking off the decade with a bang! The Grand Soirée Arcade Event features seven limited-time modes, with a new mode rotating every two days. You’ll notice some familiar favorites like Armed and Dangerous and new modes like DUMMIE’s Big Day, but we’re being coy on the details for now – you’ll have to jump in for yourself to see all the surprises we have to offer.
Progress up the Event Prize Track and Earn Increasingly Prestigious Rewards
We’ve overhauled the event challenges to a new prize track system that gives everyone more rewards and more ways to earn. Earning challenges will net you points and earning more points gets you more rewards.
Each limited-time mode will have three new challenges worth a total of 1000 points. We’ve tuned the system so that you don’t need to be there every day, but the socialites among you will also receive a special badge for trying every mode. And don’t worry, you’ll still be able to complete your battle pass challenges throughout the event too.
Bonus Scoring Weekend
Be sure to play during the Bonus Scoring Weekend, where you’ll be able to grab an additional set of event-specific challenges worth a total of 500 points. The bonus challenges will be available starting January 17 at 10:00 a.m. PT and runs until January 20 at 10:00 a.m. PT.
Direct Purchase Event Shop
As with previous Themed Events, the Grand Soirée will have a direct purchase shop that will include a mix of legendary skins, as well as other Art Deco inspired cosmetics at a $5 price point. The skins will be rotating throughout the event, so be sure to check back often for new items.
In addition, six new Legendary skins will be added to the core loot pool at the start of the event, which can be crafted or obtained from Apex Packs at any time or available for direct purchase during the event.
