In honor of Apex Legends finally making its way to Nintendo Switch, Respawn is hosting the Chaos Theory Collection Event from March 9 to March 23. This new event will bring several map tweaks, a new game-type and cosmetics, and a no-fill matchmaking mode for solo players.
“The Chaos Theory Collection Event will celebrate Caustic – the Outlands notorious, murderous scientist – and will usher in a batch of changes and new ways to play the fan-favorite battle royale,” reads the announcement. Here are the four biggest changes coming to Apex Legends on March 9:
- Caustic Town Takeover – Featuring the all-new Caustic Treatment, players will encounter a new dominant mousetrap with lots of high-quality loot that beckons all Legends who seek the glorious cheese. Constructed to prevent the Crash Site fuel spill from reaching the ocean, players must drain the toxic liquid from the center of the facility in order to receive temporary access to four gold loot items locked in cages.
- Ring Fury Escalation Takeover – A new game-type, the “Ring Fury Escalation Takeover” introduces one or more Ring Flares on the map within the current ring. Giving the classic Battle Royale a twist with expanding pockets within the Arena, players who get caught in the Ring Flare will take damage equal to the damage dealt by the current round’s ring.
- Chaos Theory Collection Event – Featuring a rewards track with all-new earnable cosmetics, this event includes legendary Kraber and EVA-8 weapon skins, daily rewards and challenges, and a brand new set of 24 themed, event-limited cosmetics.
- No-Fill Matchmaking – A new way to play as a solo Legend that sends you into your selected playlist without a team of players.
Apex Legends arrives on Nintendo Switch the same day the Chaos Theory Collection Event kicks off. It will support full cross-platform play, contain the latest seasonal content, and includes “full feature parity” with other versions of the game.
If you’re worried about picking up the Season Pass on Switch because it started several weeks ago, fear not – Respawn is giving Switch players 30 free levels for your Season 8 Battle Pass. Better yet, play the game on Switch before May 4 and you’ll snag a free Legendary Pathfinder Skin (P.A.T.H.).
