It's been revealed that Apex Legends is going to host the Grand Soirée Arcade Event for two weeks, from January 14 to January 28.

With a dress code of “formal skins”, the grand celebration lets players partake in a rollicking event with new modes every two days - from Armed and Dangerous to exotic new additions - as well as earn exquisite rewards and shop for an array of Art Deco-inspired cosmetics and outfits.

Below is a quick recap of all the activities planned during the Grand Soirée Arcade Event:

Seven Rotating Limited Time Modes - players will get to experience seven different limited-time modes - with a new mode rotating every two days - including familiar favorites like Armed and Dangerous, as well as new modes like DUMMIE’s Big Day. Each limited-time mode will have three new challenges worth a total of 1,000 points.

January 14 – Gold Rush Duos
January 16 – Live.Die.Live
January 18 – Third Person Mode
January 20 – Always Be Closing
January 22 – Armed and Dangerous on World’s Edge
January 24 – Kings Canyon After Dark
January 26 – Dummies Big Day

Event Reward Track - This new track system gives players more rewards and even more ways to earn. Complete a variety of challenges to rack up Arcade points and earn increasingly prestigious rewards throughout the event.

Bonus Scoring Weekend - From 10 am PT on January 17 to 10 am PT on January 20, players will be able to grab an additional set of event-specific challenges worth a total of 500 points.

Direct Purchase Event Shop - Players can shop for a mix of legendary skins, as well as other Art Deco-inspired cosmetics at a $5 price point. Six new Legendary skins will also be added to the core loot pool, which can be crafted or obtained from Apex Packs, or available for direct purchase.
