Apex Legends – Thrillseekers Event

The Apex Legends Thrillseekers Event will kick off on Tuesday, July 13th and will run for three weeks until Tuesday, August 3rd.

So, what can fans expect in the three-week-long event? Well, Respawn Entertainment has given us all the details. Get ready for a new Arenas Map, plenty of rewards, the return of fan favorite skins, and even a store sale.

Overflow, the upcoming Arenas Map, is reportedly extremely different to the previous Arena Maps, that’s according to Respawn Entertainment anyway. They state that 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”.

As well as a new Arenas Map, the Thrillseekers Event will feature three weeks of back-to-back rewards. According to Respawn Entertainment:

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

During the event, players will be able to earn over 1,000 points each day, with new challenges arriving daily.

Finally, the Summer Splash Sale will kick off in the Store on July 13th and last until July 27th. The sale will feature the return of fan-favorite skins, including Youngblood and Voidwalker. Check out more details on the upcoming Thrillseeker Event at the official Apex Legends website.

Thrillseekers Expected Start Time

No official release time has been given by Respawn Entertainment for when the Apex Legends Thrillseekers Event will kick off, but based on previous events we can expect it to begin at 10AM PT / 1PM ET / 6PM BST.

Should an official release time be given for the new Thrillseekers Event, we will update this article.
