Apex Legends' latest update, the Spellbound Collection Event, will see the return of popular LTM Control as well as add in some new Legendary cosmetics. But, arguably the biggest addition is the highly requested private match feature.
Private matches, or tournament matches, allow you to invite up to 60 players and five observers into a standard game. There's no XP or progression earned for these matches, making them purely for fun. Cross-Play is also required to be enabled for the feature to work.
More Changes Teased by Apex Legends Devs
It's been a long time coming, but Apex fans can finally host their own tournaments without the worry of randoms upsetting the play. And it seems that the devs might have more to offer.
Josh Medina, senior producer at Respawn Entertainment, made some cryptic hints about more updates coming to Apex.
“Shoutout my @mike_durn, @JustinMasse, @Hellhavens, and all the other awesome folks who contributed to make Private Matches for all a reality,” he tweeted.
“This is a good starter dish for 2023, excited for y’all to see what’s coming next.”
Naturally, the devs didn't expand on what's to come, but fans were quick to throw in some speculations of their own.
"Massive W. If cross progression is next, 2023 is Apex’s year," one user said.
It's unclear what Respawn have up their sleeves for the rest of the year, but they've certainly kicked things off to a good start.
