The Halloween event in Apex Legends is almost here and it is bringing a lot of fan-favorite modes and skins back to the game. If you’re a Halloween fiend, you can look forward to four weeks of Apex Legends Fight or Fright. Here are the release dates, limited-time modes, Halloween skins, and more available during Apex Legends Fight or Fright.

Apex Legends Fight or Fright Release Date

The Apex Legends Fight or Fright event starts on October 4, 2022. As mentioned previously, you will have four weeks to enjoy rotating game modes and Halloween skins.

Each Fight or Fright week will refresh on Tuesday, so look out for that. Here is the official release schedule for Apex Legends Fight or Fright:

  • Week 1: October 4 – October 11
  • Week 2: October 11 – October 18
  • Week 3: October 18 – October 25
  • Week 4: October 25 – November 1

All Apex Legends Fight or Fright Limited-Time Modes

There are three Limited-Time Modes to enjoy during Fight or Fright. Shadow Royale returns, a game mode where you and two teammates drop into a map in the night. When anyone dies, they turn into Shadow Form which allows them to run on walls, double jump, and only deal melee damage. Oh, and Shadows have infinite spawn, so it is all about being the last squad standing.

Gun Game, the newest and extremely popular game mode, will also have a week during Fight or Fright. In that mode, every kill you get cycles you to another gun. The first squad to cycle through all 25 guns wins. The final game mode is Control, which is a 9v9 game mode with three zones to capture, infinite revives, and unlimited ammo, heals, and shields.

Here is the Apex Legends Fight or Fright limited-time mode schedule:

  • Week 1: Shadow Royale on Olympus After Dark
  • Week 2: Gun Run on Estates After Dark, Skulltown, and Fragment East
  • Week 3: Control on Labs After Dark, Lava Siphon, and Barometer
  • Week 4: Shadow Royale on Olympus After Dark
