When is the Apex Legends fight or fright 2022 event?

Thanks to a recent EA blog post, we know the four-week event will commence on October 4, 2022. The opening week will see the debut of the Shadow Royale mode where players can respawn into the action through Shadow Forms.

As mentioned above, those that are eliminated during a match rejoin the action in Shadow Form. Shadow Forms have the ability to wall-run, double-jump, and utilise additional melee damage to their advantage. Shadows will respawn until a squad is fully eliminated.

Shadow Royale matches take place on the Olympus After Dark map that features dark streets and a blood moon to light up the sky.
