The lore behind one of Apex Legend’s most synonymous characters looks to be expanded today through an all-new event which will be added to the game very soon. The story of Bloodhound will be explored and players will learn new information about the character that has never been shared previously.
Beginning April 7, Respawn will invite Apex Legends players to follow Bloodhound’s trail in the upcoming “The Old Ways” Lore Event. Bloodhound will receive their own Town Takeover on World’s Edge and players will need to battle the devious Prowlers for their chance to grab some high-tier loot.
Exclusive cosmetics will also be available to players that complete the Old Ways Event’s daily challenges with even more becoming available through The Old Ways-themed items becoming available through the Direct Purchase Shop.
Here is a summary of the events that are set to take place:
- Duos & Kings Canyon – Starting on April 7, Duos will be permanently added to the game alongside Trios, with a permanent map rotation that gives players the ability to play Duos or Trios on Kings Canyon and World’s Edge.
- Town Takeover – Bloodhound’s Trials – An enclosed area in the northwest portion of World’s Edge, Bloodhound’s Trials boasts a large population of prowlers. Teams can battle against a hoard of prowlers to claim high-tier loot as a reward. But players must beware of the most dangerous game: fellow Legends scavenging goods for themselves. Exploring the enclosure with a certain hunter on your side will be most rewarding.
- The Old Ways Exclusive Event Prize Track – With The Old Ways event, Respawn is delivering an all-new prize track with rewards inspired by the latest Stories from the Outlands: The Old Ways digital short. Similar to past events, players will be able to earn up to 1000 points per challenge set and the challenge set will refresh at a daily rate.
- Direct Purchase Shop – Event-exclusive legendary and rare skins inspired by the aesthetics and themes of The Old Ways digital short will be available in the shop. The Old Ways Event also marks the return of the Legendary Hunt Skins. All 8 of the original Legendary Hunt Skins will be on offer for direct purchase in addition to 2 recolored variants of the Wraith and R-301 skins that were exclusive to battle pass owners.
The Old Ways event runs through April 21 and welcomes back King’s Landing once again which is news which will certainly please fans.
