Apex Legends Monsters Within Halloween Event

Apex Legends’ new Halloween-themed event is set to kick off later today, October 12th and will last for 3 weeks, right up until Tuesday, November 2nd.

So, what can fans expect from the ‘Monsters Within’ Event in Apex Legends? Well, as soon as the update goes live players will discover a brand new Arenas map called Encore, as well as plenty of rewards, challenges, and Halloween-themed cosmetics to get your hands on.

The final week of the event will also see the return of the popular Shadow Royale game mode. According to the Monsters Within Blog Post, Shadow Royale is a darker version of the Apex Games, overseen by Revenant with a horrifying twist. All Legends who are killed will respawn in a shadow-form to help their teammates out, with shadow lives being infinite and failure only being when your whole team has been eliminated.

More details on the new ‘Monsters Within’ Halloween Event can be found on the official Apex Legends website.
