Apex Legends Is Getting a Solos Mode, But Only For A Limited Time

Apex Legends Is Getting a Solos Mode, But Only For A Limited Time

Next week, you won't have a Lifeline to have your back.

Since the dawn of Apex Legends, fans have asked for a solo mode. Let us drop in without any friends at our side, the folks of Reddit screeched. Let me ignore the very meticulously built team dynamics of the hero classes, cried Twitter netizens. At least, Respawn Entertainment has given players what they wanted all along: a solo mode. But it's for a limited time only.

The new mode is a part of the Iron Crown Collection Event, and it commences next week on August 13. The short teaser video posted to Respawn's Twitter shows a very lonely Caustic dropping, rapidly approaching his death and probably loving it. On the official Apex Legends subreddit, community manager Jay Frechette says Respawn will be talking more about the mode once it's live and people have had a chance to play it. "For now we're going to put it out there and see what happens and what kind of feedback we get," Frechette writes.

The wording on the post is intriguing, with it specifically noting that Respawn is "trying out" a Solos mode. If it's successful and people like it, could that mean a new Solos mode could be coming to Apex Legends for good? We'll have to wait and see. In an interview with USG back at E3 2019, Respawn told us that there will be more events in addition to the season pass in the future, and the Iron Crown Collection Event is the first we've seen since June's Legendary Hunt.

In the meantime, Apex Legends' limited time solo mode starts on August 13 and wraps up on August 27. For more on Season 2, which is currently underway, check out our guides for all the skins you can unlock and challenges you can complete to quicken your Battle Charge progression.
