[Update]: The Shadowfall update is now live, and unsurprisingly, it's quite fun!

Apex Legends' Season 3 update has only just arrived with a brand new map, weapon and Legend, but if you're already itching for more content, I'm happy to say that the Halloween event is just around the corner. More specifically, the Fight or Fright event will be running from October 15 to November 5, bringing with it a variety of cosmetics and an interesting new game mode.

The game mode in question is Shadowfall, a time-limited bloodbath that will take place on a spooky, nighttime version of Kings Canyon. Things will start off fairly simply with you and 34 other solo players dropping across the map, but once people start dying the whole atmosphere will drastically change!

Each dead player will respawn as an undead version of their Legend and will lose access to their weapons and abilities, but will in return be given increased movement and jump speed, as well as a brutally powerful melee attack. And if that wasn't bad enough, the undead team will also be able to scale walls and infinitely respawn!

Besides avoiding a horrible fate at the hands of the zombie team, the final ten living players will need to join forces and make their way to the evac ship in order to actually win. The zombies will obviously need to prevent this, and with their numbers being far larger than those of the survivors, things should be pretty darn hectic during those final few minutes. In other words, this should be a pretty fun event!

You can learn a little bit more about the Fight or Fright update, as well as check out some of the upcoming cosmetics, over at the official website.
