Apex Legends Awakening Collection Event Details Out – Control LTM Returns, New Lifeline Town Takeover, and More

The event launches on June 21.

Apex Legends Awakening

The newest event heading to Apex Legends on June 21 finally brings a Town Takeover for Lifeline as Olympus gets a new hangout spot between Gardens and Grow Towers – Lifeline’s Clinic. The location contains state-of-the-art automated healing systems which players can use.

Injured Legends will be able to stand on the platform and a heal tether will activate and attach to them if the Med-bay is charged. This might just turn out to be one of the most interesting Town Takeovers as it provides players with a great way to get back into the fight by healing up themselves and their squad using Med-bays.

Lifeline’s Clinic also has an “Emergency Platform” at the back for better, higher-tier loot as well as a Care Package. The console can only be used once per game, so players might want to try and get to it first.
