Even though most fans are still chewing through Season 4: Assimilation novelties, Respawn are announcing the Valentine's Day Rendevous for tonight, 11 February 2020. So yeah, make love, war and don't forget to respawn teammates.
Valentine's Day Rendezvous lasts from 11 to 18 February 2020, during which time you'll get a chance to win themed Apex Legends items.
Respawn will be launching new items and charms, with 2 new Pathfinder and Nessie gun Charms being the first. Just in case you missed out on the earlier Valentine's event, Apex Legends dev will be bringing them back too.
Here's all you can expect in Apex Legends' lovey-dovey event:
- Log-in to collect your Valentines 2020 Badge
- Duos returns for a limited time
- “Double Up” XP Boost
- Squad up with a buddy and earn double XP (up to 20k per day)
- New and Returning Valentine’s items
- 2 new Pathfinder and Nessie gun charms
- Return of last year’s “Through the Heart” DMR and “Love of the Game” Banner at discount
Back when Respawn rolled out the Grand Soirée set of limited-time modes, many Apex Legends players were surprised that the dev kept them two days each. After all, working people had to have missed a few.
Now, however, things are starting to make sense, and Respawn were indeed merely testing the waters for what will be delivered. In other words, it's safe to assume Apex Legends will have its best year yet, content-wise.
Respawn have already shaken the Apex Legends meta up by having the L-Star and Havoc switch places, not to mention the whole introduction of Revenant.
Speaking of Revenant, his respawning went from being considered overpowered right out of the box, to being criticised for replacing bullet-soaking potential for being respawned with a sliver of energy.
