Apex Legends Bloodhound event: Old Ways update news for PS4 and Xbox One

Apex Legends Bloodhound event: Old Ways update news for PS4 and Xbox One

Tuesday, April 7, 2020, will see the launch of a new Apex Legends event on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The Old Ways Lore Event will run for two weeks and will make some lasting changes to the game. And while we don’t have an exact time yet for when the new Apex Legends update will be going live, we know what will be included.


As mentioned above, this next event will focus on new content surrounding Bloodhound.

This will include the New Town Takeover, bringing the Bloodhound’s Trials to the World’s Edge map.

“When the Apex Games came to World’s Edge, large predators vacated the area, leading to an explosion in the prowler population,” the message from Respawn explains.

“Most were traced to a nest in the northwest portion of the arena, and here, Bloodhound saw an opportunity: maintain the ecosystem by pitting humans against beasts.

“Dive into Bloodhound’s Trials, where you and your squad battle against a hoard of prowlers and claim high-tier loot as your reward.

“But beware the most dangerous game: fellow Legends who want to scavenge those goods for themselves. In moments of quiet, don’t forget to explore the enclosure, especially with a certain hunter at your side.”

For those who are less interested in exploring the lore being laid out, Respawn is also making Duos and Trios permanent choices in map rotation.

This will make it possible to do both on Kings Canyon and Worlds Edge alongside the Old Ways Lore Event.

Here’s what we know so far is coming this week to Apex Legends on all platforms:

The Old Ways Exclusive Event Prize Track

As part of the Old Ways Event, you’ll have the chance to complete daily challenges and earn exclusive cosmetics inspired by the latest Stories from the Outlands: The Old Ways digital short. We’ve been seeing a lot of positive feedback from players in regards to the prize track we introduced with Grand Soiree and continued with System Override.

As with the System Override Event, you’ll be able to earn up to 1000 points per challenge set and the challenge set will refresh at a daily rate. Plus, you’ll still be able to complete your battle pass challenges at the same time too.

Direct Purchase Shop

We’re adding new, exclusive skins that tie-in to The Old Ways digital short, similar to the Wraith skin from last September’s Voidwalker event. There’s also a mix of legendary and rare skins inspired by the aesthetics and themes of the short.

Finally, The Old Ways Event marks the return of the Legendary Hunt Skins. All 8 of the original Legendary Hunt Skins will be on offer for direct purchase in addition to 2 recoloured variants of the Wraith and R-301 skins that were exclusive to battle pass owners. As with before, these are still event-exclusive so they won’t be available outside special occasions.

To celebrate this event, we invite you to join young Bloodhound on the hunt in the latest instalment of our Stories from the Outlands series, titled “The Old Ways.” In a village that has learned to fear machines, a child is sent on a hunt in a final rite of passage. But when confronted with a monstrous threat, they must decide whether to reject the teachings of their elders. Follow Bloodhound’s trail and see how a Legend was created.
