Apex Legends data miners have already uncovered the impending arrival of the Winter Express LTM but it's time for the actual thing, as Respawn rolled out Mirage's Holo-Day Bash. There's an explosive trailer and a ton of cosmetics to win, which includes two Legendaries.
The aforementioned Winter Express LTM is all about the train and it basically replaces the ring - the train is the capture point. It's basically a three-team mode and should you capture the train three times,your team wins. From what I've personally experienced though, you may not want to land directly on the train, because it tends to get quite crowded.
Apex Legends' new LTM doesn't require looting, as Respawn said the loadouts for every legend are rotated daily. Most of them are pretty well balanced too, although you'll find that switching weapons feels like it takes ages. You can change legends mid-match too, in case you feel you could use a different sort of loadout or skill.
For Town Takeover - Mirage Voyage, Respawn said, "You are cordially invited to the holiday event of the 28th century! Mirage has moved his party boat, The Mirage Voyage, to World's Edge, and every Legend is invited. So bring your favorite firearm (you'll need it), and get ready to experience a side of Mirage you never knew. Take a dip in the hot tub, go for a spin around the dance floor and don't forget to push the button to get this party started."
Oh and it's double-XP weekend too - enjoy!
