Apex Legends Halloween Event: Monsters Within Starts October 12, Will Include New Arenas Map, LTM, and More

Apex Legends Monsters Within Event kicks off October 12th.


October has arrived, and it means that games will now start to turn up the spooky factor as we head towards Halloween and it looks like Apex Legends and Respawn Entertainment have a few cool things up their sleeves. This year’s Halloween event is “Monsters Within”, which kicks off on October 12, 2021 and will last until November 2nd, 2021.

Starting October 12th, players will be able to play in the latest Arenas Map called Encore. The map ties into the lore of Apex Legends as it was the location of Seer’s old stomping ground where he forged a reputation for himself and gained notoriety. Along with the new Arenas map, as is the case with every event, there are a bunch of cool cosmetics arriving in Apex Legends, for Revenant, Bloodhound, Caustic, and Seer – and they look decidedly spooky.

Apex Legends – Monsters Within introduces Encore, Shadow Royale, and Reward Track



Apex Legends

Encore is located on Seer’s home planet – Boreas, and is essentially the home to his origin story in the game. Encore, at least from the screenshots released by Respawn, looks like a fairly open environment that will be quite challenging for players who prefer far more claustrophobic maps with a ton of cover placement.

The layout of the map seems to encourage teamwork as holding ground on key areas of the map, such as the Performance Stage, will require a ton of help from teammates.

Shadow Royale LTM

Apex Legends Respawn

This LTM (Limited-Time Mode) makes a return to Apex legends, and is essentially a much darker version of the regular Apex Games, overseen by Revenant. Players who get eliminated/killed in Shadow Royale respawn in Shadow-Form, and can help their teammates in the rest of the match.

Shadow lives are infinite, until the last squad member is alive. The squad is only eliminated after the last living Legend from the team is dead.
