With a new update brings plenty of new leaks and this one is no exception to the rule as we've got our first look at Holo-Day Bash for 2020 (Apex's Christmas event).
While Fight or Fright has only just recently passed, the next holiday-themed event is around the corner.
Now we move onto a more chilly holiday. Last year we saw the Holo-Day Bash make its way to the game and it looks set to return in 2020.
The Christmas event revolved around Mirage, but will it change this year? We can't wait to see what the team at Respawn have in store for us this year.
Let's have a look at everything we know so far.
We will continue to update this article as more information is revealed.
Click the links below to read more:
The new event will begin on the 1st December and end on the 4th January 2020.
We expect this year for the event to start at some point in the second week as it did previously, then lasting till the first week of January.
Winter Express Limited-Time Mode
The train is back in World’s Edge just for Winter Express, and this time it’s not the only vehicle descending into the valley around Epicenter.
The supply ships from Kings Canyon are also flying around the frozen explosion.
Winter Express is a round-based mode where three squads battle for control of the train as it makes its way around World’s Edge.
This year, when your squad respawns after a round has finished, you will spawn on your own supply ship as it follows the train.
From here, your squad will be able to survey the battlefield and skydive into combat as the train arrives at its next station and the objective unlocks. The squad that won the previous round will respawn directly on the train.
Here are the confirmed stations:
- Central Station
- Fool's Gulch
Respawn has also refreshed and rebalanced loadouts for this mode to include new weapons and purple armor for more exciting engagements that really help show off what our Legends can do.
This year, Holo-Day Bash contains a rewards track with all-new unlockables.
The rewards track will be available at the same time as Winter Express, December 1 to January 4.
Starting today with Black Friday, check back every week from November 24 to January 4 for a new set of sales including all-new Loba, Revenant, and Spitfire Legendary Skins.
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the offers below:
