Limited-time mode: Winter Express
Hi everyone, I’m Mark Yampolsky, Systems Designer on Apex Legends, and I’m here to tell you about a fan-favorite mode we’re bringing back this Holo-Day Season, now with some exciting changes!
The train is back in World’s Edge just for Winter Express, and this time it’s not the only vehicle descending into the valley around Epicenter. The supply ships from Kings Canyon are also flying around the frozen explosion.
For those of you who haven’t played it before, Winter Express is a round-based mode where three squads battle for control of the train as it makes its way around World’s Edge. This year, when your squad respawns after a round has finished, you will spawn on your own supply ship as it follows the train. From here, your squad will be able to survey the battlefield and skydive into combat as the train arrives at its next station and the objective unlocks. The squad that won the previous round will respawn directly on the train.
We’ve also added a new station for the train to stop at: Derailment is the scene of a catastrophic accident that occurred as a cargo train traveling the opposite direction took a tricky turn at high speed. This new station has a variety of flanking opportunities and a unique rotation under the bridge where the train stops. This allows you to quickly change which side of the objective you’re attacking.
These changes should significantly reduce some of the long respawn times between rounds that players experienced last year. We can now spawn you earlier on the supply ships, and the longest section of track between stations is now divided in half with Derailment. We think these changes will make the mode an even more awesome experience.
Some new Legends have joined the games since Winter Express was last live, including Loba, Revenant, Rampart, and Horizon. These Legends shake up the mode in new, exciting ways and we can’t wait for you to find new strategies for defending the objective or breaking through a powerful enemy line. We’ve also refreshed and rebalanced loadouts for this mode to include new weapons and purple armor for more exciting engagements that really help show off what our Legends can do.
Holo-Day Rewards Track.
This year, Holo-Day Bash contains a rewards track with all-new unlockables. The rewards track will be available the same time as Winter Express, December 1 to January 4.
