The Dark Depths Event Is Bringing a New Map, Mini Battle Passes and More!
Apex Legends is coming out with another event titled the Dark Depths Event. The Dark Depths Event is filled with tons of content including new underwater-themed cosmetics, an arenas map and flash events. The event will come out on January 11th, 2022.
Players can purchase limited-time Dark Depths Packs for 400 Apex Coins. The packs are guaranteed to contain at least one new event item that isn’t a duplicate of an item you already own. The event items will be available indefinitely in case you miss out.
Also coming with this event is a brand new arenas map titled Habitat 4. Set on the same archipelago as some of the other arenas maps, this island map is a breeding ground for leviathans, the giant creatures seen roaming around in the background of some maps. The layout of the island features tons of branching paths and verticle landscapes for players to utilize during a match.
EA posted a blog on their website detailing how players can interact with the tropical island’s geography. “the enclosed space of the Cave offers a sense of security and protection. Fights are focused on mid-range and close combat, allowing for a variety of strategies and fast pushes on timely shield breaks. Sacrificing cover and controlling the Cave’s center will give you a leg up, as it overlooks the map’s mid-field and one of the airdrops. If things get too spicy, Legends can use the Cave’s waterslide as a fast getaway or to quickly move towards the Nest.”
Finally, players can unlock Dark Depths cosmetic items through the all-new Flash Events. Flash Events are one week-long mini battle passes that offer 9 rewards per week. There are currently three Flash Events listed on EA’s website. The first one will last from January 11th to the 18th. The second will last from the 18th to the 25th. Finally, the last Flash Event will last from January 25th to February first.
