If the previous events in Apex Legends taught us anything, it’s the fact that they’re bloody fun and absolutely worth anticipating!
And after looking at the trailer Respawn released for Apex Legends: The Old Ways – we’re hedging our bets on the fact that it’s going to be totally stellar!
When Is The Event Starting?
Apex Legends The Old Ways will go live on Tuesday, April 7, and will run for two entire weeks before coming to a close on April 21.
Players will be able to jump into the event’s new content at 10:00AM Pacific Standard Time (6:00PM BST).
What Is Apex Legends The Old Ways Event All About?
During that period of time, players get to access and play through an entirely new Town Takeover on the World’s Edge map. While playing through the event, you’ll be able to find The Bloodhound’s Trials in the upper left corner of the map. Once inside, you’ll be facing off against a whopping horde of Prowlers, along with other Legends that come snooping around. And should you emerge victoriously, you’ll be able to rack up some rare high-tier loot for your time and efforts.
What Are The Event Rewards?
Much like the previous events, Apex Legends The Old Ways features in-game drops, limited time cosmetic items that you can pick up through the in-game store along with a prize track that players can complete for some amazing loot.

Players will now be able to queue in with one additional person at all times and choose whether or not they want to play on King’s Canyon or The World’s Edge.
Both of these features are going to become permanent and will be here for good after the April 21 deadline.
