After all the bitterness regarding Iron Crown, it would appear that Respawn is making all efforts to prevent a similar situation from occurring ever again. That's why it recently shared an Apex Legends event structure overview which outlines what the game's events will look like from now on.
Respawn director of product management Lee “Leeeeeee-RSPN” Horn revealed the Apex Legends overview in a blog post which highlights the three different types of events and how they're structured. Each will have its own unique theme but will share the same framework.
They will also use the following template for their content:
Provide one or more gameplay changes, map updates, balance changes, new characters, new weapons and more.
Introduce new free progression content through challenges and a Battle Pass
Provide cosmetics for sale through the Battle Pass, packs and/or the shop.
The three types of events are Collection, Season Launches and Themed Events:
These will deliver a limited-time mode and event challenges to earn cosmetics. Just like with Iron Crown, players will also have to buy event-specific packs or buy the cosmetic items from the store.
Each season will bring big changes to the map, add a new legend or feature and shakeup the meta through balancing. It will also include a new Battle Pass.
These will arrive mid-season to change things up a bit. Like the Collection Events, it will feature a limited-time mode, event challenges and an assortment of cosmetics up for direct purchase. An example of this is the Legendary Hunt.
Following the negative player reception to Iron Crown's monetisation practices, Respawn has decided to be more transparent about its actions. This overview is just the first of many more the developer hopes to use to keep its community informed.
“We received a lot of fan feedback on our recent Iron Crown Collection Event and we’re listening. We have another Collection Event planned for October and ahead of that event we will share with you how we are making changes to the event,” said Horn.
It's easy to assume the October event will be Halloween-themed since it's the right time of year. A new Themed Event is also scheduled to hold in September.
