It's fair to say that Apex Legends is one of the biggest games in the world. You can see this in its updates, events and so much more. Here's what you should know about the Apex Legends Unshackled Event before it goes live.

Latest - It's Finally Here

Later on today, you can finally play it for yourself. Just make sure to get everything ready and downloaded in time.

You've only got a few more hours to go.

Apex Legends Unshackled Event release time and date

The Apex Legends Unshackled Event will go live next Tuesday, on April 19th. This doesn't very long at all between the announcement and it going live. This is likely the start of an attempt to shorten that hype time. While building some level of anticipation is good, too much can make it really hard to fully live up to expectations. This will then end on May 3rd, just weeks after.


Although we don't have an official release time yet, we can make a guess based on when the last events have gone live. If it takes after the older ones, we are anticipating a launch at:

  • 10 AM PT
  • 1 PM ET
  • 6 PM BST

This being said, there is always a chance it could go a little early or a little late. With the next-gen patch now here, there are even more players to worry about.

What's New?

Perhaps the biggest new addition is the return of Flashpoint. Doing away with traditional healing methods, you have to get to a zone to heal, which may be infested with your enemies. This mode will leave you always seconds away from an ambush, pushing on just a little further to restore some needed health points.

As well as this, players can unlock Flash challenges, unique tasks that grant special items, badges and more.

Finally, there are 40 event-themed cosmetics to get. If you're looking for some brand new skins, you will find them here. They come in unique "Unshackled Packs" that can only be acquired during the event.
