Apex Legends Voidwalker Event Wraith

Apex Legends Voidwalker event starts today

Forget the debacle that was the Iron Crown event, because Voidwalker starts today and, this time, it’s all about Wraith.

There’s a new town takeover, in Kings Canyon, in the form of the decayed Project: Wraith facility. The research site is full of hidden bits of lore and includes a functional prototype portal that you can use to get to the base or to escape and reinitiate skydive.

We’re also getting a limited-time game mode called Armed and Dangerous, which limits weapons to snipers and shotguns while reducing the availability of loot. Speaking of loot, there’s a bunch of event loot to be earned by competing a number of challenges, including exclusive skins and Wraith-themed content. There will also be themed cosmetics for direct purchase and six new legendary items to craft or find in packs. Event-limited items will be available to purchase on a rotating schedule.

As a bonus, from 19:00 SAST on the 6th to 19:00 SAST on the 9th players will earn double XP for Top 5 finishes and wins.

The Voidwalker event runs from 3 to 17 September.

To set the mood, check out some of Wraith’s backstory in this rather excellent animated short; the second installment in the Stories from the Outlands series:
