Apex Legends Warriors event brings back beloved Control mode

Apex Legends is getting its second event in season 12. Titled Warriors, the collection event brings the return of the fan-favorite Control mode, a variety of new skins, a brand-new Crypto heirloom, and more. The event will start on March 29 and run until April 12, giving players two weeks to grab all the cosmetics they want and reexperience the magic of Control.

Control is back, but only for the duration of the event. The mode will include a new zone to fight in called Caustic Treatment from Kings Canyon. The zone has been updated for the special 9-versus-9 mode with new ziplines for increased mobility, structures for added cover, and skydive launchers to help players reposition themselves. The zone takes advantage of Caustic Treatment’s natural flow and defensibility to prompt the large-scale fights Control is known for.

Arena mode will also be getting a new map called Drop-Off, a battle zone that sits atop a tower overlooking a futuristic city. Players will be able to take advantage of interior and exterior zones to outplay their foes — as long as they don’t fall off the edge of the tower. The map is permanent and will remain in the Arena map pool after the event ends.

Warriors will come with 24 new limited-time cosmetics, including a variety of legendary and epic skins for both legends and guns. The usual event reward tracker will display players’ progress through daily challenges. Collecting all 24 cosmetics grants Crypto’s new heirloom, the Biwon Blade. Players will also be able to purchase limited-edition cosmetic bundles from the in-game store.

Apex Legends’ Warriors Collection Event begins on March 29 and runs until April 12.

A Legend escapes and explosion.

Unlike other mobile versions of popular battle royale games, such as PUBG: Mobile and Fortnite, Apex Legends Mobile is not just a straight port of the original game onto your mobile device. This game was built from the ground up for smartphones. While it's similar to the base game, the differences here are substantial enough to make even the most experienced Legends stumble a bit when sliding into this portable battle royale experience.

You will need to get a handle on more than just the new controls when acclimating to Apex Legends Mobile, and if it's your first time getting a chance to experience this free-to-play, class-based take on the battle royale genre, then you have even more onboarding needed before you can call yourself a true Legend.

Apex Legends Mobile isn’t a great fit for small screens
Promo art for Apex Legends Mobile shows different characters.

Apex Legends is one of those multiplayer games I love, but am terrible at. When I was invited to a press demo for the game’s limited-time Control mode earlier this year, I was thoroughly embarrassed as my peers routinely downed me with a headshot from across the map. I’ve always wanted to play it more than I do, but I never felt cut out for the twitchy world of PC players.

Apex Legends Mobile solves that issue for me, though it creates some new problems of its own in the process. The standalone mobile version of the battle royale hit more or less feels like a one-to-one adaptation of its bigger counterpart (the most notable difference is the number of pop-up notifications trying to nudge players to the shop). That means I can fully enjoy the shooter in a more casual portable setting, one free from the mouse and keyboard crowd.

Newcastle has one of Apex Legends' most intriguing backstories to date. Newcastle is a Captain America-like superhero in the game's world who has tried and failed to qualify for the Apex Legends tournament time and time again. As it turns out, he's so desperate to enter it because he's in deep in debt. When a negotiation with his loan sharks turns violent, Newcastle's dad, who's related to Bangalore, decides to don the Newcastle mask and enter the battle royale in place of his son.
