The mode is coming as part of the new Apex Legends Season, Legacy. A new season always brings new changes, so here are some things we can expect from the newest Season, and New Arenas Mode in Apex Legends.
1. A New Legend
Valkyrie is the newest Legend coming to Apex at the launch of the newest season, so fans will get the chance to try her out in the Arenas mode. We can be sure to see many players trying her out in the opening days of the Legacy Season.
2. Bocek Bow
The Bocek Bow is a new deadly weapon coming to the newest Season of Apex, and in an Arena-style battle-to-the-death, a bow might be the perfect weapon for stealthy matches and trying to survive under the radar. According to Respawn it "inflicts tremendous damage at medium range," which would be perfect for an Arena Battle Royale rather than the larger normal map of Apex Legends.
In the launch trailer, we saw Octane get caught trying to escape the Arena it seems by a trap laid by Horizon and Wattson. If the Arena is a lot smaller in size than the regular Apex Map and possesses twists and turns and hidden spots like these to lay a trap, you can expect players to take full advantage of these, laying traps for unexpecting legends to fall into and make easier to eliminate. A battle arena for players to fly into and try to escape from or destroy enemies inside of will be a lot of high-octane fun, and will definitely keep the adrenaline pumping throughout the match.
The Legacy Season of Apex Legends launches on May 4, and the trailer leaves fans excited for what's to come.
