Apex Legends is introducing a brand new event named Dark Depths which kicks off on January 11 and run through February 1. 

Respawn and EA have unveiled the brand new limited-time event for their free-to-play battle royale shooter Apex Legends. Named Dark Depths, the event brings a new Arenas map named Habitat, themed cosmetics and smaller flash events. 

The new Habitat map is described as one that allows a lot of slides and quick getaways while the new prizes include Apex Packs, Holosprays and Skins among other things. 

There are also Legendary skins for Ash, Horizon, Lifeline and Fuse that can be purchased via the Store. 

Check out the official reveal trailer below: 

Here is the breakdown of the new event: 

  • New Arenas Map: Habitat - One of the smallest islands in the New Antillia archipelago, Habitat 4 is best known as a Leviathan breeding ground after Early IMC research groups were surprised to find that a large population of local Leviathans gravitated toward the island, designating the island as an ethology base to study creatures’ behaviour. Filled with exciting terrain that has eroded and transformed over time, Habitat 4 features a large waterfall, along with the Cave and the Nest which rest on higher ground on opposing sides of the island. The new map allows for slides and quick getaways, giving Legends the opportunity to support their team quickly when divided or outnumbered.
  • Flash Events - Each week, Legends can complete challenges to earn a new set of unique prizes and badges. Key prizes include Apex Packs, Holosprays, Skins and more.
  • Themed Cosmetics - Unlock themed cosmetics that turn Legends into terrors from the deep. Players can purchase Legendary skins for Ash, Horizon, Lifeline and Fuse.

  • Dark Depths Packs - Players can claim the limited-time Dark Depths Packs for 400 Apex Coins and unlock cosmetics, weapon charms, trackers and more. The pack guarantees the unlocking of one non-duplicate Dark Depths Thematic Event item and can also be crafted with crafting metals.
