Apex Legends artwork featuring Bloodhound

After hearing the same requests over and over and over again, Respawn has now finally given the Apex Legends community exactly what they wanted - the option to play Duos regardless of what event is going on, as well as a fast-moving map rotation so you never get stuck with the same map for long. So if you're like me and you're pining to once again drop in the chaotic nightmare-land that is Kings Canyon's Skulltown, this is the update for you!

Before you do that, however, you might want to give the World's Edge map a try as well given that Respawn has also added a new region to it - a Bloodhound themed arena. As you might imagine from the brief description alone, the arena will have you face off against a variety of hostile critters, as well as your fellow players, in order to acquire a hoard of epic loot. Needless to say, expect the arena to be an absolute bloodbath for the next few weeks.

The Old Ways update has also brought in a brand new event that will last until April 21. The event is once again themed around Bloodhound, and will give you a chance to collect a variety of cosmetics, as well as learn a little bit more about Apex Legends' most mysterious character. If that sounds like your cup of tea, you might also want to check out the newest animated short as it's all about Bloodhound and their origins. Have a peek:
