Season 5 has now been announced to be starting on 12th May, so it looks like Season 4 will be getting extended for an extra week too!

Battle Armor Event

The exciting Battle Armour Event, announced by Respawn developer Jason McCord, will start on 28 April for a limited time.

READY UP! Armour takes centre stage in the upcoming game mode

It’ll take place on World’s Edge and will continuously evolve over 14 days with a new exciting twist every few days or so.

During the event rotation, only one type of armour will be available to players, and they will drop into the match with it already equipped.

It looks like armour will be removed from the loot pool. This won’t be the same for shield cells, batteries and the all-important loot though!
