Apex Holo-Day Bash 2020: End Date, What to Expect, Rewards, Winter Express, Limited Time Modes & more

Apex Legends had a big 2020, with the game moving over to Steam, a Switch port on the way, and a new surge in popularity thanks to consistent high quality seasons.

Season 7 has been a huge success so far and now we have the return of the Holo-Day Bash to throw a Christmas twist on proceedings.

Last Chance

The Apex Holo-Day Bash returned on Tuesday, December 1, and will run throughout the whole of December, ending on Monday, January 4, 2021.

Holo-Day Bash 2020 Trailer

The Holo-Day Bash debuted in Apex Legends in December 2019, with the Christmas promo going down a treat with fans.

In fact, it was so successful that Apex decided to have it return this year, with plenty of new content coming too!


Winter Express 'Crushed' Bug

The Winter Express limited-time mode has hit the Holo-Day Bash, but it has come with its problems.

Players are finding themselves crushed when they head towards a certain area of the map or when they go towards teammates.

Not an ideal start to the festive period.

Winter Express LTM

The train returns to the Worlds Edge as you prepare to hop onto the Winter Express once again.

The limited-time mode sees three squads battle for control of the train as it makes its way around World’s Edge.

Theres a few little changes this year too, with respawning squads finidng themselves on their own supply ship as it follows the Express.

You will then be tasked with deciding where you want to begin your next round before onboarding the train and diving into combat.
