Five New LTMs
However, they also sound like a lot of fun. Over the next two weeks, Respawn Entertainment are rotating five different LTMs which bring a few key changes to the traditional Apex formula. We have details on them below:
- Shield Regen: Shield regenerates constantly.
- Killing Time: round time is reduced whenever a Legend dies.
- Auto Banners: automatically retrieve fallen banners.
- Ultra Zones: compete for top loot.
- Second Chance: Every player gets one free Respawn.
Although we don’t know exactly how these will operate, we do know that the first LTM will be Second Chance. It will run from April 13th to April 15th.
Although we’re not sure how many Legend changes are actually coming in this set of Patch Notes, we do know that a few Apex Legends are expecting changes soon. There are some leaks circulating, but the changes below are some of the ones that stand out.
Loba is due to get quite a few changes to both her Ultimate and Tactical abilities, which are frankly a little bit broken.
In addition to this, we know that Lifeline is getting a few tweaks that might affect her pick rate in-game. It is being reported that her Revive Shield is going to be removed but her Drone Healing rate will be increased.
We’re not sure how we feel about that, but Lifeline is consistently a highly-picked character so this could be the first step in a meta overhaul.
Full Patch Notes?
As you might imagine, this all means we don’t have any official Patch Notes yet. We’re expecting them to either drop April 12th at around 13:00 EST / 18:00 BST or April 13th at similar times when the War Games Update goes live.
The Apex Legends Blog is the best place to keep an eye on for them.
