Apex Legends latest trailer reveals more details

The latest trailer for the Arena mode shed light on things to come. Gamers will find themselves in a smaller arena that will feature 2 squads locked in a deathmatch. Teams will spawn in the designated area, and they can purchase weapons with crafting material resources. This also applies to items, abilities, and upgrades for any weapon that your character holds.

The fights will go on, right until one team gets wiped from the map. This will award the winning squad one point, and the team would need to gain 3 victories with a margin of 2 to win the mode. You can be still revived after getting knocked out, however, this mode will not offer respawns.

In case the rounds get tied at 4 each, then a 9th round shall be played. This round will be sudden death, and whoever secures victory will go on to become the champion squad. You can find supply bins, crafting materials, and similar resources that were available in Battle Royale mode.

These maps are tailor-made for Arena mode as they offer up-close-and-personal encounters. Gamers will find many areas that will offer new landscapes, while some will be set in the Battle Royale maps that already exist in the game.
