Grand Soirée Event Arcade Event Trailer

You are cordially invited to two weeks of refined mayhem. We are pleased to offer fresh game modes every two days, from golden oldies to exotic new additions. Partake in a rollicking event prize track, earn exquisite rewards, and peruse the event shop for an array of Art Deco inspired cosmetics and outfits. Dress code: Formal Skins. To elaborate on the event we have Brad Pettigrew, Product Manager for Apex Legends.

Hey all, SaladGuy-RSPN back to walk you through the Grand Soirée Arcade Event, which brings back the Roaring Twenties starting on January 14 – January 28.

What’s in the Grand Soirée Arcade Event

  • Limited-Time Mode Arcade
    • Experience a different limited-time mode every two days, including familiar favorites and new additions
  • Introduction of Event Prize Track
    • Complete challenges to rack up Arcade points and earn increasingly prestigious rewards throughout the event
  • Direct Purchase Event Shop
    • Featuring exclusive Art Deco inspired cosmetics and other new additions to the core loot pool

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.

Duos, Game Updates, Making of World’s Edge – Apex Legends Devstream Video 2

Apex Legends just released a video where they talk about multiple features and new game updates are coming in the near future.

One of the first things they talk about is how Friendly Fire is coming to the Firing Range! The update to Firing Range should arrive in the December update and is something the community really wanted. Furthermore, they also teased that there is an Easter Egg that has not been found yet by the community. So get out there and try to find out what it is.

The devs talked about how much they enjoy reading the feedback and how duos was a big success for them. All three of them enjoyed duos which allowed them individually to get more playmaking opportunities since the teams are smaller. However no mention on when they will bring back solos or duos.

Then the new director of product management, Lee Horn, dives deeper into the new progression system they announced yesterday. You can read all about the new level and reward system right here. With the new level system, there will more packs and many new gun charms for players to unlock.

Wraith Bubblehead Apex Legends Gun Charm

If there is a specific gun charm you really want, but do not have a lot of time to unlock these there is good news. The gun charms will all be individually available to purchase in the item store in December, so keep on eye on our website to not miss out!

They continued with talking about how this is not all left for Apex Legends for 2019 and they have even more planned. While they were not allowed to say what is coming for the holiday season, they were very excited knowing what is in the pipeline and yet to come. From this, we can deduce that there will be some sort of event or cosmetics coming around the holiday season, possibly a Christmas / New Years event.

With Season 3 Meltdown a new map, World’s Edge was introduced. In the video, they dive deep into the making of the map and the thought process that went into several design choices. A lot of artwork and early sketches were shown in the video. It provides players a good look at the several stages of development the map went through. It was revealed they worked around 14 months on this map and that the players weren’t even close to finding all the Easter Eggs!

The video finished with showcasing the amazing artwork made by the community and wishing everyone a happy holiday!

Progression Changes, Gun Charms, Increased Level Cap & More

Today Respawn announced that there are several exciting changes coming to the Apex Legends progression system. Read the full post by Leeeeeee-RSPN here:

Hey All,

Leeeeeee-RSPN here! We know y’all have been asking for more free Apex Packs and a higher level cap so today we’d like to share our upcoming changes to Player Level progression and rewards (resulting in MOAR FREE STUFF). Additionally, we’re also introducing Gun Charms into core Apex Packs for players who want to further swag out their favorite weapon in their own style.

TL;DR – Player Level Progression Changes

  • Player Level cap increased from 100 -> 500
    • XP required to hit level 100 has been reduced by approximately 5% to smooth out per level XP increases
  • Players can now earn 199 Apex Packs by level 500 (previously 45)
    • Level 2 – 20: One pack every level
    • Level 22 – 300: One pack every two levels
    • Level 305 – 500: One pack every five levels
    • You will continue to earn 600 Legend Tokens per level
    • Apex Packs rewards will be retroactive
  • Players will also earn a Player Level Gun Charm every 100 Player Levels

TL;DR – Gun Charms

  • 36 new Gun Charms are going into Apex Packs at Epic and Legendary tier
  • Gun charms will now appear in the Rotating Shop for players who prefer direct purchase

Player Level Cap Increase & an Additional 154 Apex Pack Rewards

The Player Level cap has been increased from 100 to 500. Players can now earn a total of 199 Apex Packs related to Player Level rewards at the following cadence:

  • Level 2 – 20: One pack every level (19 Apex Packs total)
  • Level 22 – 300: One pack every two levels (140 Apex Packs total)
  • Level 305 – 500: One pack every five levels (40 Apex Packs total)
  • You will continue to earn 600 Legend Tokens per level and per 18,000 XP at level 500

The net impact of this change is that players will now earn 59 Apex Packs from level 1 – 100 (up from 45 Apex Packs prior to this change). All players will be retroactively awarded any Apex Packs they should have received under this new system. For example, players who are currently level 100 will receive 14 Apex Packs when this system goes live.

Players will now earn a new badge every 10 levels from 110 – 500.

Players will also receive a Player Level Gun Charm inspired by the above badges at levels 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500.

Player Level XP Reductions

Under the old system, there was a large increase in XP required at level 26. Under the new system, we’ve reduced the rate at which XP required to level up increases from levels 20 to 58. The net impact of this change is that the XP curve should be softer for new players, meaning they will get more rewards, faster through level 58. Additionally, the total XP required to hit level 100 will be reduced by approximately 5%. Because XP requirements are being reduced, players between levels 20 and 99 may find they are a level higher after this change goes live, if they were close to leveling up. These XP changes will have no effect on players already at level 100.

The maximum XP required per level will remain at 18,000 starting at level 58 (26 in the old system) and will remain constant through level 500.

Gun Charms

We’re introducing 36 new Gun Charms to Apex Packs. They will be available in Epic and Legendary tiers. Additionally, Gun Charms will now rotate through the Shop.

As always, we appreciate all of your support and feedback. We hope these progression improvements make playing Apex Legends a more rewarding and engaging experience!
