Shadow Royale is coming back to Apex Legends this October alongside more Limited Time Modes and Halloween themed cosmetics

The fan favorite Shadow Royale Halloween event is returning to Apex Legends this October for a full two weeks. The Fight or Fright events will run for the entire month alongside the release of some scary cool cosmetics and skins.

Shadow Royale is Back to Apex this Halloween

Apex Legends is bringing back the fan favorite Shadow Royale LTM with Olympus After Dark, a new eerie look for the floating city. The spooky limited time mode allows your teammates (and enemies) to endlessly respawn in shadow form after they’ve been killed until the entire trio is eliminated. Shadows can double jump, revive allies, run on walls, and pack an extra punch with their melee attacks. However, the shadows can be defeated easily with a bullet or a punch and they even drop some ammo when defeated. The event was first introduced in the 2020 Fight or Fright event and is hosted by a gleeful Revenant.

Respawn is also quickly bringing Gun Run back following its debut in the Beast of Prey Collection Event on September 20th, which may be a testament to its popularity. That LTM will be followed by the return of Control, a king of the hill style game mode that debuted in Season 12. All of the Fight or Fright LTMs will take place after the sun has set on the Apex Games, creating a new ghoulish atmosphere to the usual maps.
