Spooky season is almost upon us, and it looks like Apex Legends is gearing up for the return of Shadowfall to celebrate. Dataminers have found evidence of a future Halloween event for Apex Legends.

Dataminer Shrugtal revealed that data for the Shadowfall limited-time mode was found in a recent patch. The Halloween-themed LTM will be called Shadow Royale this time around.

The original Shadowfall was last playable during the Fight or Fright Collection Event last year. The mode is a variant on Battle Royale, with 35 players landing in an abandoned King's Canyon. The twist is that when players die, they return as a Shadow that will hunt down the remaining player pool. The last 10 survivors then become their own team and must hold out until an evacuation ship arrives.

According to Shrugtal, Infected and Spiders will return in Shadow Royale. It's unknown if the same cosmetics as last year will return. Previous returning LTMs in Apex Legends have had some minor additions, like changes to armor or equipment.

If Fight or Fright is returning with Shadow Royale, this will be the first time a Collection Event has been repeated. It's likely that Holiday events like Fight or Fright and Holo-Day Bash will be annual mainstays if this is the case

We'll know more about this year's Halloween event as we get closer to October. Last year's Fight or Fright began mid-October.
