Respawn Entertainment may have accidentally revealed a new limited-time game mode for Apex Legends, as well as a returning fan-favorite mode.
As seen by the Apex Legends YouTuber, Loft, the Twitch Rivals schedule for October 8 and 9 seems to confirm that both Gun Game and Shadow Royale will be played during the tournament. This likely means that a new in-game event will take place during this time and will see the return of Shadow Royale, as well as a new limited time mode known as Gun Game.
As seen in the tweet below (via Kral Rindo Y Loft), the event overview for the Apex Legends Twitch Rivals tournament in October lists the modes that will be played. Under the format tab, the schedule states that five standard Battle Royale matches will be played, followed by one Gun Game match. Another point then states that Battle Royale matches will consist of three standard Battle Royale matches and two Shadow Royale matches, confirming the mode’s return.
Shadow Royale is a limited time game mode that was first introduced in Season 6 and often returns during the Halloween season. The mode allows players to return after death in a “shadow form” to take revenge on their killers and help lead their squad to victory.
Gun Game has yet to debut in Apex Legends, but it’s a hugely popular mode in games like Call of Duty, and has long been rumored to be coming to Respawn’s Battle Royale title. Respawn is sure to add its own spin to things, but the basics of Gun Game are simple. All players start with the same weapon and must progress through a set number of weapons by getting a kill, the player who gets a kill with each weapon being the victor.
Of course, we recommend that you take these details with a grain of salt for now, as the developers have yet to officially confirm the existence of Gun Game in Apex Legends. But, if the leak is true, we could be seeing it arrive in early October.
