Apex Legends' new Arenas 3v3 mode has already established itself as a good, bloody alternative to Battle Royale. But now that we’ve all warmed up, Respawn is ready to put us to the test by introducing a qualifying queue for Arenas.
Introduced earlier this season, Arenas reduces Apex to 3v3-based knockout fights. Like CS: GO or Valorant, each round provides you with some currency to spend on weapons, upgrades, equipment, and Legend powers, with resource cans spread across the maps to hit your wallet in the next round.
It's a tense and tense way to enjoy the good shooting of Apex, which is getting one new map next week. But the absence of a classified Arenas playlist was notable at launch. Speaking on EA Play's Future of FPS board, game director Chad Grenier confirmed that the ranked game will arrive in season 10.
Grenier didn't delve into how the ranking will work in Arenas, but it will likely be similar to what the game already does in Battle Royale, with similar skill groups and badge / charm rewards for each. But with BR’s rating system built to accommodate 60-player matches, Arenas could also opt for a more traditional Overwatch or Valorant-style system, where placement matches determine your starting score.
A classified system can also help stop the problem of Arenas, which persists despite efforts to penalize those who leave. Although it works, we'll find out when season 10 falls next month, with a new legend still unknown and possible changes to the map. Fingers crossed to return the train to World & # 39; s Edge.
