Iron Crown Collection event
The new Apex Legends 1.16 update implements the Iron Crown Collection event, which features a number of new rewards for players to earn. New cosmetic unlocks include the Protector of the Void Wraith skin, as well as the War Machine Pathfinder skin.
Patch 1.16 also introduces the fan-requested Solos mode, which will finally give players the chance to go it alone. Apex Legends normally forces players into teams of three, incorporating a number of gameplay mechanics that take advantage of team-based play, including the ability to alert teammates to locations and items through pinging, as well as different special moves that can synchronize together to make for some big game-changing plays.
The new Apex Legends mode will be available until the August 23 end date. It’s likely that developer Respawn Entertainment will be monitoring player feedback during the event, to see if Solos works well or not.
Solos will also allow players to focus on completing more of the Weekly objectives, as you don’t have to worry about teammates landing at different locations, picking characters that you need to get kills with, or nabbing weapons and armor before you can get your hands on them.
