Mirage's Holo-Day Bash Dates

Mirage's Holo-Day Bash is scheduled to run from Dec. 12 to Jan. 7.

Mirage's Holo-Day Bash Limited Time Mode: Winter Express

Winter Express is a new game mode Apex Legends players will be able to play for the duration of the Holo-Day Bash. In it, players join one of three teams of three players each to fight for control of the World's Edge train. The first team to capture the train three times wins.

Players spawn with pre-determined loadouts that roate each day of the event. Eliminated players will respawn each round, and players can select different Legends between each round.
