Apex Legends Limited-Time Event Announced Ahead of Season 2 Reveal at E3 2019

Finally, some new skins.

The hunt begins next week in Apex Legends. Respawn announced a limited-time event with a few "Legendary Hunt" challenges coming next week, as well as a tease of the season two battle pass.

Some of these rewards include an epic Bloodhound skin, and two legendaries: a dino-skull R-301 skin, and a "Night Terror" skin for Wraith. The theme seems to be prehistoric alien hunters, with lots of bones and trophies.

Definitely getting some Predator vibes here, folks. | Respawn Entertainment

While the first details of season two, including the hunt event, will be revealed 10 a.m. PT on June 8 as part of the EA Play livestream, lead product manager Lee Horn wrote about some of the high-level improvements coming in a blog post. You'll be able to level up the battle pass through daily and weekly challenges, and the climb to level 100 should be less steep, according to Horn's post.

Respawn is also reworking a number of the rewards. There will be three additional legendary items in the battle pass, with one every 25 levels (including one at level one) in the premium track. Badges and basic stat trackers have also been removed from the premium rewards track, though the free path will still have seasonal win trackers. In their place will be three new content categories, which will be revealed closer to the season two launch.

Finally, voice lines are replaced with crafting metals, with enough of them to craft a legendary item. So if there's a legendary you've had your eye on, the Battle Pass can provide enough to get you there, so long as you can level it all the way up.

A "lot more" will be coming next Saturday, so expect to see more details then. Check out our E3 2019 guide to make sure you know when to tune in.
