Apex Legends lets you ride solo starting on August 13

For a limited time, Apex Legends will be giving players the option to fight as a member of a one-person team. Traditionally, the game has played with teams of three, but players have been asking for a solo version more or less since its release. Now the option is here as part of the Iron Crown Collection event, starting on August 13th and running until August 27th. Players can go in without any support whatsoever, and there can be only one winner in the end.

Of course, the event is only going to be running for a limited time, and it appears that the solo mode will also be a limited-time thing. Still, if you’ve longed for the chance to succeed or fail purely on your own skill, this is your opportunity to do just that. And if that leads you to realize that you may not actually get very far surviving purely on your own skill… well, that’ll be an interesting revelation as well.

I have no interest in playing it solo, but I support anything that cuts down on the number of people who immediately break off to go solo in normal play. It’s maddening to start every match hoping your teammates actually want to work with a team. Always struck me as incredibly selfish to screw over two other people because you want to play solo.

I dunno man, I think solo mode is just too much of a departure of what makes Apex Legends unique. Team composition would be imbalanced as fuck, and you can’t revive in solo mode obviously.

I think duos mode would be better, that way you at least get to have different team compositions and be able to respawn your team members.

Not to mention in duos, you only have to deal with one stupid teammate instead of two stupid teammates in trios mode.

Someone I read that someone datamined that there will be TDM mode in the game. I want this to come out so I can give the game a try.

I know what you mean. Personally I want a Domination or Payload Escort.

I’m not sure what Domination is. Fighting over controlling points?

I love Payload Escort, it was my favorite mode in Alliance of Valiant Arms.

If they have something other than Battle Shityale, I’d play the shit out of that game.

I just don’t like the premise of BR – you find a match, start with no weapons, go rummage through buildings, get killed and there is no respawn – you have to start over. I know that if you play with a party in Apex you can get revived, but that’s not the point.

I want modes with respawning, I want modes like Counter-Strike’s bomb defusal with rounds. BR is so stupid and idiotic.

They’d better add third-person view and PvE to make it actually interesting.

Um I think you might want a different game as that is not what this game is or aims to be.

Took a break from this for a few months due to FPS stuttering in firefights and some in general pretty poor optimization performance related issues, but most of that has cleared up. Been playing pretty heavily the last 2 weeks or so and it has been a blast and love most of the changes and additions. Really wish it wasn’t just a solo mode for this, that should already be a thing constantly in the game as a way to play. They should also seriously consider doing a Big Team Battle of some sort heavily focused on specific Objective style game mode. Cart push, neutral bomb assault, CTF, Conquest. That would be amazing.
