Thrillseekers Event will launch on July 13 giving fans a chance to play a new arena map. The event was leaked last week which revealed most of the cosmetics and event dates. But now we know it's official.

The Thrillseekers Event will run from July 13 until Aug. 3, 2021.

Thrillseekers Event New Arenas Map: Overflow

Get ready for some lava! Respawn explained their thinking on the new map design, "Overflow differs from other Arena maps by being lane focused; where each location is separated by tall, lava-filled structures. With this separation, players cannot easily spot early decisions made by the other team and will need to stay vigilant before committing to a side or risk being flanked. While there are opportunities for long-range engagements, combat tends to favor short-to-medium ranges along either POI: Overlook or Slope."

As with every event, Respawn is running weekly rewards.

  • Week 1 gives you a chance to unlock the Rampart Wastelander Set, which includes a matching gun charm, weapon skin, and a Legendary Rampart skin.
  • Week 2 grants Battle Pass boosters, crafting metals, and Apex packs. 
  • Week 3 includes the Lethal Enforcer Bangalore Skin, along with other goodies!

You'll have a chance to earn all these rewards for the two weeks the event is live.
