Respawn Entertainment revealed an interesting sort of event for Apex Legends called Battle Armor, and since it will last until Season 5, they also revealed the start date for the new season.
So, the Battle Armor event will be held on World's Edge and is a 14-day long event, which Respawn intend to spice up with different types of armour.
All the Apex Legends players will be dropping onto the map with a P2020 and will have access to only a single type of armour. Note that the rest of the loot is varied as usual, but armour is the same for everyone.
The schedule is as follows, with 10am PDT being 5pm GMT:
- Tuesday, April 28 @ 10am PDT - Saturday, May 2nd @ 10am PDT: Level 1 (White) armor only.
- Saturday, May 2 @ 10:01 am PDT - Wednesday, May 6 @ 10am PDT: Level 2 (Blue) armor
- Wednesday, May 6 @ 10:01am PDT - Saturday, May 9 @ 10am PDT: Level 3 (Purple) armor. We expect to see some drawn out fights as everyone drops with some of the best armor in the game.
- Saturday, May 9 @ 10:01 am PDT - Tuesday, May 12th @ 10am PDT (when Season 5 kicks off): Evo Armor only
We intentionally bolded the part that's talking about the start date of Apex Legends: Season 5, just so you don't miss it, but if it's easier to remember - Season 5 comes after the Evo Shield round.
Respawn will also turn on double Level XP for Top 5 finishes across all modes during the Battle Armor event, so there's an extra incentive to go and play. They also mentioned that they intend to experiment more with Apex Legends' core gameplay in Season 5 and beyond, so we've got a lot to look forward to.
Last but not least is the Season 4 extension, so if you've more grinding to do in casual or ranked, you can do so until 12 May 2020.
