Apex Legends Season 17 is gearing up for its highly anticipated Arsenal release. With this season’s upcoming limited-time event, developer Respawn Entertainment is giving players the chance to choose the game mode that will receive its own dedicated playlist. This unprecedented move aims to promote community involvement and allow players to take part in shaping the game they love.
Voting for the Limited-Time Event
How it Works
Respawn Entertainment has launched a Twitter poll where players can voice their choice between three available modes – Control, Gun Run, or newly added Team Deathmatch. The winning mode will receive its playlist and be playable throughout the entire limited-time event. Voting began on May 5th and ends on May 8th at 8 AM PT/11 AM ET.
The Current State
Currently, all three modes are included in a single playlist that periodically changes to a different mode throughout the day. This voting dynamic will give players a more streamlined Apex Legends experience. The winning mode will be revealed on the event’s launch, May 18th, through an event trailer that generally debuts at 10 AM PT/1 PM ET.
More About the Upcoming Event
Season 17 Launch
Apex Legends Season 17: Arsenal goes live Tuesday, March 9th, at 10 AM PT/1 PM ET. Players can expect a new legend – Ballistic (a.k.a. Maggie Chen), a sharpshooter whose unrivaled accuracy should not be underestimated, per Respawn Entertainment. The legend will bring a slew of new content and exciting experiences.
The seasonal event typically lasts for two weeks, so the winning mode will likely be available for the same duration or more.
It’s unclear if Mixtape Mode will also be available during the event, allowing players to access the two game modes that don’t win the vote, or if it will become temporarily unavailable. Whether Mixtape Mode will be available or not may affect the game’s momentum, as this mode offers a broader Apex Legends experience, including additional game modes.
Overall, Respawn Entertainment’s plan to allow the community to vote on the limited-time event’s game mode is an excellent way to involve players in decision-making processes and show appreciation for their love and support for the game. It is now up to players to cast their votes and decide which game mode will receive its playlist during the limited-time event.
Don’t forget to cast your vote before May 8th at 8 AM PT/11 AM ET to make your voice heard!
