EA is all set to release the Apex Legends Mobile Aftershow update on 4 October at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET. The new update will bring a new battle pass, an all-new solo mode in Battle Royale mode, new events, map changes and several other updates in the ranked system of the game.
The developers have officially released the written patch notes which describe the maps, gameplay changes, and other updates. One thing that is notably missing is a new legend and this update becomes the first battle pass to be released without a new legend. However, the new battle pass is shorter than the previous editions and cheaper which will cost around 299 Syndicate Gold (~$3 USD).
Apart from the absence of a new legend, there is quite a lot of new content awaiting Apex Legend Mobile players when Aftershow launches. One of the new in-game events will offer the players a chance to unlock fade when it is accomplished. Down below are the official patch notes of the Aftershow update:

Sniper Showcase – Oct 5th – 11th (0:00 UTC)
Practice your long game with your enemies by completing special sniper missions during this time period for special rewards including the Saltwater Sentinel Skin.
Beginning on October 12th, the team will be making some slight changes to Kings Canyon. Encore Galore and Pythas Theater will be leaving the map for now. This will impact both Ranked and normal Battle Royale. Don’t worry, Seasonal Currency from supply bins will still be available across the map.
Complete missions on select weekends to earn Rank Protection cards that will help protect you from losing points during a match should you or your teammates run into any unlucky circumstances!
Each day of the event:
Log in to claim a Ranked Level Protector – which will automatically prevent the loss of ranked points, if that loss would lower your Ranking.
Complete two Ranked matches to earn a Ranked Point Protector – which will automatically prevent the loss of ranked points if your hot drop goes awry!
All Ranked Level and Ranked Point protection will expire after 7 days or when the season ends, you will be notified automatically when they expire. This protection will only be available by engaging in the events, and will not be available for purchase, so mark your calendars!
Ranked Protection Card Event Schedule:
- Oct 8th – 10th (0:00 UTC)
- Oct 15th – 17th (0:00 UTC)
Play With Your Friends:
Up until Platinum, we have removed any rank restrictions of who can party up together to play a ranked game. For example, if you are gold and your friend just getting established as an Apex Champion is climbing through Bronze, you will now be able to play Ranked together!
