And there’s double XP for the duration.
Apex Legends’ much-loved Duos mode is returning tomorrow for a limited-time, as part of the free-to-play battle royale game’s Valentine’s Day celebrations.
Developer Respawn first introduced a Duos mode – enabling players to squad up in teams of two rather than the usual three – for a brief spell last November, and it went down a treat, with many hoping it might eventually become a permanent addition to the game. Sadly, Duos’ return will once again be fleeting, running from tomorrow, 11th February, until 18th February.
Friends and lovers buddying up for a romantic bout of two-player shooty action during the event will be able to take advantage of the “Double Up” XP boost, which, as you can probably imagine, awards double XP during matches – although there’s a 20k limit per day. Additionally, anyone logging in before proceedings come to an end will earn the Valentine’s 2020 badge.
As for premium cosmetics, Respawn is introducing two new seasonally appropriate gun charms – Valentine’s Day variants of Pathfinder and Nessie – plus the “Through the Heart” Longbow and “Love of the Game” Pathfinder Frame make their return.
Through the Heart and the Lovestruck Nessie charm (800 and 500 Apex Coins respectively) are available from tomorrow until 14th February, while Love of the Game and the Lovefinder charm (800 and 700 Apex Coins) put in an appearance between 15th and 18th February. You’ll find images of each on the Apex Legends website if you’re curious.
