Apex Legends solo mode is here! Season 2 has been a success compared to its predecessor, it gave us a ton of new content ranging from Wattson, new weapons, balance changes and an expansion of the lore. Now after a successful launch, the staff at Respawn Entertainment have put their feet up, warm hot chocolate in hand, relaxing after a job well done. Hah! As if…
Respawn Entertainment have built up a huge amount of momentum and they have no intention of slowing down the train. Today, they will be launching the Iron Crown Collection Event, the first time players can compete completely solo. The event is available for a limited time only and will close after the 27th August. So for those of you who want to take on the ultimate test of skill and get some unique skins, now’s your chance!
