every october, Apex Legends Holds an annual Halloween event, which features an LTM called Shadow Royale He sees legends transformed into zombie-like shadows with superhuman speed and power. But after the prolific Apex Legends data guide revealed a new Halloween event, it looks like the game’s developers may have something different in the trick-or-treat shop this year: the new Gun Run Ltdis set in a mysterious copy of the Olympus map.
Data operator, who previously has Apex Legends Battle Pass contents leaked Long before they debuted the game, they posted an image on their Discord server that appeared to suggest an upcoming version of Gun Run set on a map called “Haunted Estates,” which looks like a Halloween-ified version of Olympus’ Points of Interest “Autumn Estates” POI”.
If this leak proves legit, it will be the biggest change to Apex’s annual Halloween event since it was renamed Shadow Royale (formerly) Shadow Fall) for the second year of the game, and that will mean that Gun Run may not be gone forever when it is beast of prey The event ends on October 4. But the developers of Apex said in The last AMA series that they You have no plans for more events like multi-mode war games in Season 8 Happened, so the leak could mean a scary version of Gun Run will completely replace Shadow Royale, rather than share the stage. However, one thing is for sure: If the leak is legit, Apex players will finally get a glimpse of what Olympus looks like after dark, much like they did when the Kings Canyon After Dark map debuted during the year one Halloween celebration.
Kings Canyon after dark It is exactly what it sounds like – a nighttime version of the usually sunny Kings Canyon map. It’s appeared several times throughout Apex’s history, but players haven’t had a chance to explore the “After Dark” map outside of Shadow Royale matches for over a year now. The opportunity to take a closer look at a different map “after dark” is certainly an exciting possibility. Another popular Apex Legends creator, iLootGames, he’s already seen the map himself – and it’s not just the Autumn Estates who got a spooky makeover. The video depicts the entirety of Olympus being consumed by darkness, suggesting that despite statements from the developers in recent AMAs, players may see both Gun Run and Shadow Royale taking place in a sunless Olympus this Halloween.
The POI video for Pathfinder depicts Fight Knight in disarray, with all the signs and billboards depicting revenge. Even the text of the video has been changed to one of Revenant’s favorite phrases: “Watch ’em beg.”
In Apex lore, there is a mysterious alternate dimension in which the Revenant has staged a coup, bypassing the guild, and is worshiped as a deity. Seeing the way the Pathfinder statues have been replaced by replicas of the Revenant’s Death Totem in this dark new Olympus, it makes sense that the Shadow Dimension’s Revenant might be planning a visit to our dimension in October.
While all leaks should be treated with a grain of salt, both the leaks involved have excellent track records when it comes to accuracy, so players will very likely be running and shooting through dark Olympus in a few weeks. But until then, it’s probably a good idea Get some knife throwing practice While the sun is still out.
