Respawn is extending Apex Legends Season 4: Assimilation by one more week in order to squeeze in one last limited-time event before Season 5 begins. The new event, Battle Armor, begins on April 28 and continues for 14 days.
During the Battle Armor event, a new mode, also called Battle Armor, will be introduced into Apex Legends. Battle Armor takes place on World’s Edge and sees everyone drop with a specific type of body armor and a P2020 pistol already equipped at the start of every match.
Strap in for the Battle Armor Event! 🛡
Drop in with your armor locked and prove you’ve got the skills to come out on top! Beginning April 28, the Battle Armor Event will run up until the start of Season 5, which kicks off May 12.

“The Battle Armor event is just one way we are going to start experimenting with the core gameplay of Apex Legends, and we’re excited to introduce even more twists in Season 5 and beyond,” Apex Legends design director Jason McCord wrote in a blog post.
