But only for a limited time.
When Apex Legends burst onto the scene in February, it sought to make its mark by focussing its action exclusively on tightly integrated, tactical squad-primarily based play. And when its phenomenal 1st handful of weeks recommended that players appreciated the refreshing deviation away from the battle royale norm, some remained hopeful that developer Respawn may 1 day grant Apex Legends a much more conventional Solos mode – and that day, it transpires, will quickly be right here.
According to a new post on the official Apex Legends Twitter feed, Respawn will be launching the Iron Crown Collection restricted-time occasion subsequent week, operating from Tuesday 13th August, till Tuesday 27th August. The concentrate is a new Solos twist on Apex Legends’ usual 3-particular person squad-play, with players lastly getting provided the possibility to descend upon King’s Canyon for some intense just about every-fighter-for-themselves action. “For restricted time,” screams Respawn’s bombastic announcement teaser, “only 1 can put on the crown”.
Subsequent week, only 1 can reign. ?

Provided the quantity of fan requests for Solos and Duos modes in Apex Legends, what with the in some cases strained nature of anonymous 3-particular person squads, the announcement is positive to be a bit of a crowd-pleaser. It also brings some closure to the mystery posed by EA boss Andrew Wilson, who, in an earnings contact at the finish of final month, teased an imminent occasion that would provide “1 of the most fan-requested attributes considering that the launch of Apex”.
It remains to be noticed regardless of whether subsequent week’s occasion will really be a restricted-time occurrence, or if Respawn is introducing Solos in order to test its viability as a much more permanent future addition. Maybe if all goes nicely, and the complementary nature of Legends does not eventually lead to also quite a few balance concerns in solo play, Solos may grow to be an in-game fixture when Apex Legends’ third season arrives this October.
