Apex Legends: Solos Mode Returns in Upheaval Season

Apex Legends: Solos Mode Returns in Upheaval Season

2. May 2024 by Never

After an absence of nearly five years, Respawn Entertainment has officially confirmed the return of Solos mode to Apex Legends with the launch of the upcoming season, Upheaval.

The Return of Solos

The return of Solos mode has been solidified with a mention on the splash page for the next season: “Stand alone in Solos. It’s every Legend for themselves, and all eyes are on you.” The accompanying image also teases the addition of Alter, the newest member of the Apex Legends roster.

Permanent or Limited-Time?

It remains unclear whether Solos mode will return as a permanent addition to Apex Legends or if it will be available for a limited time during the Upheaval season. Solos was initially introduced during the Iron Crown Collection event in August 2019 but was only available temporarily to gather player feedback before determining its future within the game.

Past Challenges and Hope for the Future

Although the original Solos mode was popular among players, issues like rampant teaming undermined its integrity.

Respawn’s initial stance on Solos suggested that Legends were designed to complement team play, casting doubts on the mode’s return. However, other battle royale titles like Fortnite and Call of Duty have successfully integrated solo modes, offering players a break from team-based gameplay.

What’s Next?

Stay tuned for more details about the upcoming Upheaval season, including gameplay trailers and additional information. The official gameplay trailer for Upheaval is set to be revealed on May 3, promising exciting insights into the changes and additions coming to Apex Legends.
