Arena Mode Will Appear in Apex Legends
Apex Legends are getting the arena mode. It’s not a temporary addition — the mode is here for good. So, what can you do in it?
First off, if you’re knocked out, you can’t be respawned. Instead, your character can be revived. A round is over only if you fully eliminate the opposing team or vice versa.
By the end of each round, you and your enemy will score points. The team that has earned more points and won three rounds, becomes victorious.
However, there’s a system of additional rounds. If necessary, you will have to fight in extra rounds and if it’s still a tie, the whole thing will culminate in a death match after a 9th extra round.
As the studio added in the post:
“Our new ruleset takes a bit of getting used to, but prevents total blowout games from dragging on for too long. It also lets more competitive games keep the heat going for longer, and give teams a chance to come back and win!”
In the Arena mode you will start with a simple weapon. And it’s up to you how soon it’ll be upgraded to the purple tier.
There will be Materials scattered around the map: they will let you turn your gun into a real annihilation tool, buy disposables like Kai Aid or Shield cell, and so on. However, you won’t be able to take a gun to the next round — it prevents poor balance.
