New apex crossplay event big news for apex

pex Legends crossplay is officially coming on October 6, as part of the new Aftermarket Collection event. The event also adds a new LTM, and lots of new cosmetic content and challenges.

Crossplay was confirmed for a Fall launch earlier in 2020, but this first rollout is technically just a beta, as Respawn tests all the features. Cross-progression isn’t available at this time, but Respawn will talk more about this during the Steam launch later this year.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Aftermarket Collection event, starting October 6.

Crossplay beta

  • Players will be able to party up and play together across all currently supported platforms: PlayStation 4 , Xbox One, and Origin (Steam too once it launches!).
  • Cross platform play is enabled by default. Unless you’ve changed it, you should be good to go! Xbox One also contains a similar setting in the system settings, outside of the game, that must be enabled. More on this setting later

 

Flash point

The centerpiece of this mode are Flash Points, massive zones dotted around towns in Kings Canyon. Flash Points are special because they regenerate your health and shields over time to get you healed and ready for combat in a flash ( ba dum-tss ). Learn where these are quickly because healing items do not spawn in this mode – Flashpoints are crucial to helping you stay alive.”

Caustic Heirloom

Caustic is finally getting his heirloom! The deadly scientist will be wielding a huge hammer, at least if you’re lucky enough to get one!

Take a look at some of the cosmetics on the way:
