Respawn Entertainment announced the inaugural Apex Chronicles, a new type of story-focused Apex Legends event, will kick off Wednesday.

The event, titled Old Ways, New Dawn, focuses on Bloodhound. Players who select the tracker Legend in unranked battle royale matches that take place on World's Edge will have the opportunity to follow a quest line exploring their backstory.

"The journey follows Bloodhound as they try to save an injured prowler and deal with the guilt over their crumbling home world and past failures," Respawn said in its announcement of the event. To trigger the quest line, keep an eye out for a white raven. When you find it, it will lead you on a unique path to avoid multiple Bloodhound players from competing for the same challenge at the same time.

If players are unable to complete the journey in a single game, they'll be able to pick back up at checkpoints in their next lobby. Players can earn Battle Pass Stars as they complete individual chapters in the quest. They'll also earn three Bloodhound-themed Apex packs for completing the Chronicle.

There are three chapters, plus a prologue and a finale, for players to experience. The prologue and first chapter are available as soon as the event launches Wednesday. The second chapter unlocks Saturday, and both the third and finale Monday, Oct. 4.

Respawn has not said when the event will wrap.
