Respawn released a patch for Apex Legends today, which included the launch of the brand new Iron Crown Collection Event. It includes:
- Limited-Time Mode – Solos
- Octane Town Takeover
- Double XP for Top 5 and Wins Weekend
- A special Iron Crown Collection Pack and Iron Crown Event Store
- With Bloodhound Heirloom Set Preview
- Exclusive event challenges with free loot
Limited-Time Mode — Solos
This is the first time Solos has available in Apex Legends. While it’s currently only a limited time mode, Respawn was quick to mention a possibility of permanence. They’re going to “watch and see what happens,” and want to hear feedback from the players.
Octane Town Takeover
Octane has taken over part of Kings Canyon, bringing new ways to eliminate enemies. Check out the mega jump pad course and Ring of Fire, which will become permanent additions to the map, even after the event ends.
Respawn spoke of adding more, “if the community enjoys these types of town takesovers.”
Iron Crown Collection Pack
Like all Apex Legends Collection Events, this one brings a set of themed, limited-time content. Open Iron Collection packs for a 50% chance of getting and Epic or Legendary item from a set of 24. Commons, Rares and duplicates will not be included in these packs.
Iron Crown Event Store
The new event currency, Crowns, can be earned from challenges and from Iron Crown Collection Packs. They can be spent in the limited-time event store to unlock Rare Epic and Legendary content.
If you unlock all 24 Iron Crown Collection Pack items, you’ll be able to get Bloodhound’s Heirloom Set with Apex Coins. This set will enter the standard Apex Pack bonus pool after the Crown Event ends.
Unspent Crowns will automatically convert to Crafting Metals at the end of the event.
Double Top 5 and Wins XP Weekend
From August 16th to August 19th, Apex Legends players will earn double XP for Top 5 finishes and wins. This will affect both Account Level and Battle Pass progress.
