Respawn also adds that "Starting on April 7, Duos will be added to the game alongside Trios, as well [as] a permanent map rotation that gives players the ability to play Duos or Trios on Kings Canyon and Worlds Edge". Alongside a new cinematic trailer detailing the backstory of this character, The Old Ways event will permanently introduce a Duos game mode, along with a map change to World's Edge. In the event, players will be able to participate in the "Bloodhound's Trials", in which they need to fight against a hoard of prowlers in order to get "high-tier loots". The obvious danger here is that you might be battling the AI prowlers, but other players might be watching on, waiting for you to drop your guard. As with previous events, you can earn up to 1000 points per challenge set, with fresh challenges cycling in each day. Additionally, the direct purchase store will have a rotating range of rare and legendary skins for heroes and weaponry throughout the event. All eight will be available for direct purchase in addition to two recolored variants of the Wraith and R-301 skins that battle pass buyers had access to. However, the real exciting news began shortly after that video went live.

Starting next week, Apex Legends is getting a permanent Duos mode, alongside a temporary event featuring Bloodhound. Most notably of all, permanent Duos playlist and Kings Canyon options are coming.

Resident Evil 8 rumored for next year, with first-person view
It is not going to be Resident Evil 8 either, but a by-product title that is allegedly going to be unveiled in the near future. In Resident Evil 3 remake , there's no boutique shop that gets unlocked, but there are ways for Jill to get an outfit change.

You could see this as Respawn setting a solid foundation for the game to riff off through future events such as this Town Takeover, trading one form of time-limited gimmick for something that might feel more substantial to players. Be aware that these offerings are still exclusive, so grab them while you can, because the Old Ways event ends on April 21.
