Apex Legends Valentine’s Day Rendezvous Event Starts Today


by in Apex Legends | Feb, 11th 2020

UPDATE: The developer of Apex Legends, Respawn, has confirmed that the Valentine’s Day Rendezvous event has been postponed until tomorrow (2/12/20). Stay tuned for updates.

Respawn Entertainment officially announced the Apex Legends Valentine’s Day Rendezvous limited-time event, the first 2020 holiday-themed event for the battle royale game.

Apex Legends Valentine’s Day Event Announced After Leaks

The Apex Legends Valentine’s Day Rendezvous event official announcement comes after data miners recently leaked it. Even though one of the most prominent miners for the game stepped away, the mining community still goes strong.

The holiday limited-time event leaked along with the reveal of a returning game mode and some special rewards. Respawn confirmed these leaks with the actual name of the Valentine’s Day event actual name.

The Apex Legends Valentine’s Day Rendezvous announced before the start of it with the actual event beginning later today through February 19. During that time, players can earn some rewards, purchase themed items and play a returning game mode.

Fan-Favorite Game Mode Returns in Valentine’s Day Event

As with any major holiday event in the game, Apex Legends Valentine’s Day Rendezvous offers a special game mode throughout the week-long event. This time, though, a certain game mode returns.

A Valentine’s Day event in battle royale wouldn’t be complete without the popular duos mode making a return in Apex Legends. While the event goes on, players can grab their special someone or their most talented partner and try to get a victory in battle royale.

Unfortunately, duos is still not a permanent game mode type in the battle royale game, but its return is welcome nonetheless. Duos is one of the most competitive game modes in most online multiplayer games out there.

Respawn Entertainment celebrates its temporary return with an experience boost for players who play it. The double up experience boost allows players to earn extra experience for partnering up with one of their friends.

Every mode has the double up experience boost, not just duos. However, players must be in a party with one of their friends. Unfortunately, the double up experience has a cap of up to 20,000 each day during the limited-time holiday event.

Login Rewards and Themed Items Appear in Event

Besides the duos game mode isn’t the only unique part of the Valentine’s Day event. There are the expected rewards and cosmetic items as well.

If you log in during the event, you can grab a free Valentine’s 2020 badge to show off in the game. Beyond that, you can purchase some themed items through the in-game store. Some of these items are familiar to the Valentine’s Day event last year. A few returning items are also offered alongside new ones debuting this year.

Last year’s Through the Heart DMR skin and the Love of the Game banner item are available for purchase again. Thankfully, players can pick them up at a discount compared to what they sold for last year.

On the other hand, the holiday event features some new items. Oddly enough, two of the four cosmetic items are sold in the first half of the event, with the other two sold during the second half.

This is a strange way of doing it considering how short the event is. So, players need to make sure they don’t miss out on the item(s) that they are looking to get. The first two items are available in the store through February 14.

During that time, players can get the new Love Struck gun charm and the Through the Heart Longbow weapon skin. From February 15-18, players can get the second half of the cosmetic items which include the Lovefinder Pathfinder-themed gun charm and the Love of the Game Pathfinder frame. Last year, players who revived a teammate received exclusive rewards. However, we haven’t heard anything about a similar offer this year.
