After a delay, the Valentine’s Day Rendezvous limited-time event is now live in Apex Legends. This is the first event for Apex Legends Season 4: Assimilation, which pushed Respawn’s battle royale game into Year 2 and added Revenant, the Sentinel sniper rifle, World’s Edge map changes, and a brand-new battle pass.
Valentine’s Day Rendezvous will continue for a week, ending on February 18. Log in at any time during the event and you’ll earn a new badge. There are two new weapon charms that you can purchase as well. Duos mode also returns in Valentine’s Day Rendezvous–last seen in November 2019, though there was a legendary-tier variation of Duos during the Grand Soiree Arcade event in January 2020 called Gold Rush Duos.
The holiday-themed event also sees the return of the epic Through the Heart Longbow DMR skin and legendary Love the Game Pathfinder banner–both of which were available for only a limited time in February 2019. So if you happened to miss those cosmetics the first time around, here’s your chance to nab them now.
There’s actually been a lot of new content and gameplay changes in Apex Legends over its first year. Plenty of cosmetic items were only available for a limited time, so players who picked up the game during Season 2: Battle Charge or Season 3: Meltdown missed out on earning certain items. We’ll have to wait and see if Respawn decides to continue handling Apex Legends’ events like what’s being done with Valentine’s Day Rendezvous–offering new players a chance to buy older items they missed out on while giving veterans an opportunity to get new rewards.
