Apex Legends Evolution Event: What date does the event actually start?

Jump To

Apex Legends' Evolution Collection Event is almost here and we're here to talk about what you need to expect from the update alongside what date the event is due to start. You'll be pleased to know, it's almost there!

VEND-IT MACHINES - What do they do?

Big Maude is more than just a new set of stairs in Lava City - This Rampart Town Takeover is going to introduce "Custom Modded Paintball Weapons" to Apex Legends via Vend-It Machines hidden inside Big Maude.

They're going to be quite expensive to purchase - with Scrap, we assume - but they'll be well worth it. Here's what Respawn Entertainment has said about them so far:

" Inside the shop, you can use collected materials to purchase Rampart’s Custom Modded Paintball Weapons from the new Vend-it Machines. These guns cost a bit, but they come fully kitted at different tiers. This should give players a reason to rotate here mid-game if their weapons just aren’t as upgraded as they’d like."

Do you think this could be a permanent feature going forwards? We hope Respawn Entertainment are considering it, at least.

START DATE - When does the event kick off?

Apex Legends' Evolution Collection Event - which is set to introduce Rampart's Town Takeover to Lava City - is due to release on September 14th. We don't have a specific time just yet, but looking at the last Apex Legends event, we can hazard a guess that it's going to arrive around the following times:

  • 10:00 PST
  • 13:00 EST
  • 18:00 BST

This is - of course - an estimate, so take it with a grain or two of salt. Apex Legends' Evolution Collection Event is going to start a lot sooner than you might think, in any case, so save the date!

Rampart's Town Takeover isn't the only thing that's going to be introduced in this update, though... Keep reading for more information.

WHAT TO EXPECT - Everything you need to know

The Evolution Collection Event is going to introduce a new batch of cosmetic items and a new Reward Tracker to Apex Legends - you can check out a look at both of those below:

FREE CONTENT - As always, there's some free cosmetics up for grabs...

We don't know what the Reward Tracker Challenges will be just yet, but they will most likely have something to do with the Rampart Town Takeover we've been talking about.

Rampart has landed Big Maude, her mobile workshop-tank, on the outskirts of Lava City and it's going to make this otherwise unpopular POI a great place to drop in World's Edge going forwards. Here's what Respawn Entertainment has had to say about it:

" Enter Big Maude, Rampart’s custom shop (also a giant tank, what else would you expect?) located near Lava City in World’s Edge. This POI is big enough to accommodate a few teams fighting over the shop itself, and she’s also built a wonderful paintball course out front that acts as a spill off location if the drop just looks too spicy.

MOD SHOP? - Big Maude is also a giant tank, which is fun...
" Inside the shop, you can use collected materials to purchase Rampart’s Custom Modded Paintball Weapons from the new Vend-it Machines. These guns cost a bit, but they come fully kitted at different tiers. This should give players a reason to rotate here mid-game if their weapons just aren’t as upgraded as they’d like."

Rampart's Heirloom is also being added alongside this update - sorry, Wattson mains. Maybe next time, eh?
