Iron Crown Collection Event - 8/13/2019

Hey, Legends!

 

Last month, we kicked off Apex Legends Season 2 – Battle Charge. Since then, it’s been awesome to see players hustling to get to higher tiers in Ranked, creating strategic plays with Wattson, and using new parts of the environment to their advantage. In the process, the community has provided lots of great feedback for us to take in.

 

But that’s not all we have planned for this season! Today, we’re kicking off the Iron Crown Collection Event. To tell you all about it we have Lee Horn, Director of Product Management for Apex Legends. Take it away, Lee.

 

Hey all,

 

Leeeeeee-RSPN here with an overview on the Iron Crown Collection Event.

 

TL;DR What’s in the Iron Crown Collection Event:

  • Limited-Time Mode – Solos
  • Octane Town Takeover
  • Double XP for Top 5 and Wins Weekend
  • A special Iron Crown Collection Pack and Iron Crown Event Store
    • With Bloodhound Heirloom Set Preview
  • Exclusive event challenges with free loot

Limited-Time Mode – Solos

That’s right, we’re finally dipping our toes in the Solo waters. While we are committed to Apex Legends delivering a competitive, three-player squad experience, we’re going to put Solos in for a limited time. We are always striving to ensure healthy matchmaking across all modes, so it's too early to say whether Solos will be permanent or not, but we're going to watch and see what happens. As always, we want to hear your feedback, so let us know what you think.

 

Octane Town Takeover

Octane has taken over part of Kings Canyon and done a bit of remodeling to better suit his adrenaline-seeking tendencies. Check out the mega jump pad course and Ring of Fire to eliminate enemy squads in style. We’re always looking for new ways to weave Legend personalities into the map, and this change will remain part of Kings Canyon even after the event ends. If the community enjoys these types of town takeovers we’ll look into adding more for other Legends in the future.

A special Iron Crown Collection Pack

Apex Legends Collection Events bring a set of themed, limited-time content to Kings Canyon.  Open Iron Crown Collection Packs for a 50% shot at an Epic item and a 50% shot at a Legendary item from a set of 24 themed items. No Commons, no Rares, and no duplicates will be included in these packs.

A fixed loot pool with no duplicates means that if you unlock all 12 Epics and still have items remaining, you’re guaranteed a Legendary on every future Iron Crown Collection Pack opening.

 

Iron Crown Event Store

The Iron Crown Collection Event also introduces a new event currency, Crowns, which can be earned from challenges and received from Iron Crown Collection Packs. Crowns can be spent in the new limited-time event store to unlock Event-Limited Rare, Epic, and Legendary content. 

During the event, if you unlock all 24 Iron Crown Collection Pack items, you’ll be able to get Bloodhound’s Heirloom Set with Apex Coins. The Bloodhound Heirloom Set will enter the standard Apex Pack bonus pool after the Iron Crown Preview Event ends.

Unspent Crowns will automatically convert to Crafting Metals at the end of the event. All Iron Crown Collection Packs and Iron Crown Store content are Event Limited.

 

Event Challenges with Free Loot

During the Iron Crown Collection Event, complete a variety of challenges to earn two Iron Crown Collection Packs, exclusive Iron Crown event badges, and Crowns.

 

Double Top 5 and Wins XP Weekend

From 10:00 a.m. PT on August 16 through 10:00 a.m. PT on August 19, players will earn double XP for Top 5 finishes and wins.  This bonus will affect both Account Level and Battle Pass progression.
