New limited-time game mode called Lockdown

Lockdown is Apex Legends' newest game mode. It will follow a four-squad free-for-all battle format, and it'll be played on Thunderdome, Skulltown, Zeus Station, and Monument.

Additionally, the Shadow Society Event will include 36 different cosmetics that players can grab by purchasing the event packs.

While most of the cosmetics included in the event look fire, the Cobalt Katar is the crown jewel.

Cobalt Katar

Apex Legends are introducing Apex Artifacts, defined as an "all-new universal Mythic Melee cosmetic that can be wielded by any Legend."

Unfortunately, players can't directly purchase the Cobalt Katar, as it is part of the Shadow Society Event Packs.

Reward Shop

Apex Legends are introducing the Reward Shop, a place to unlock cosmetics with Reputation, which can be earned by completing the weekly challenges. There, players will be able to grab themselves any kind of cosmetic, including Packs.

Updates to Legends

This patch includes a handful of updates to some Legends in the game:
