Apex Legends has received a lot of praise thanks to its mixture of battle royale with hero shooters, letting teams of three coordinate to take the top spot. Next month, starting on November 5, 2019, the highly-requested Duos mode will be coming to the battle royale, letting groups of two players compete against one another to claim victory. This news comes on the heels of the shooter reaching a staggering 70 million players in less than a year on the market. Since its stealth release in February 2019, Apex Legends has garnered a lot of attention, with developer Respawn Entertainment continuing to support it with events and updates.

With that in mind, it’s unclear when or if we’ll see another Titanfall game, though Apex Legends is technically a part of that same universe.

And in the meantime, you can still play Apex Legends‘ spooky Halloween event called Fight or Fright, which adds new festive skins, a limited-time game mode, and a number of other cosmetics and aesthetic changes to celebrate the spooky season. It ends on November 5th just as Duos goes live.
