Apex Legends’ Halloween events Fight Or Fright Event returns for a 2020 edition, and it brings many surprises, including the first official introduction of a Titanfall-like wall-running mechanic into the battle royale game.
Running from 22 October 2020 to 3 November 2020, this year’s Fight Or Fright event offers all-new reimaginings of last year’s skins like the Sweet Dreams Caustic and Wicked Harvest Bloodhound, as well as new skins for Loba and Revenant.
In addition, all 24 of last years’ Fight or Fright items will be available through shop bundles or shop offers. The shop rotates weekly, so be sure to check back often for all the best deals. Players can also look forward to a prize track with all-new exclusive rewards.
The limited-time mode Shadow Royale is set in a spooky alternate dimension where Revenant runs the Apex games. Matches start like any other trios match, but when you die you will be raised from the dead in a powerful “Shadow Form” to exact vengeance on your killers and help carry your squad to victory.
Armed with a brutal melee attack, enhanced mobility and blistering speed, you will terrorize other squads and protect your own with infinite Shadow lives until your living teammates are eliminated or you emerge victorious as the last living squad.
The best thing about this Shadow Form is that it allows your Legend to wall-run. That’s right, folks, in order to actually wall-run, you’ll still need to die and respawn as a Shadow Legend.
Unfortunately, in normal circumstances (during normal matches), you still won’t be able to wall-run.
