Respawn today announced Apex Legends’ new limited-time collection event, “System Override,” which runs from March 3 through March 17. System Override will feature the new Deja Loot mode, which will see all loot respawn in the same location on the map each match. The limited-time event will also be the first time players can pick up the new Evo Shield in the arena and collect a variety of Assimilation Themed cosmetics and a new Heirloom Set for Octane.
Get a sneak peek at the System Override Collection event and all the action players can expect in the Deja Loot mode with the new features.
Below is a quick recap of all the activities players can look forward to:
Deja Loot Mode – Due to a system glitch, this limited-time mode will feature the same flight path for the dropship and all loot will respawn at the same location throughout the System Override Collection. The Ring location will change on a daily basis. The first week of Deja Loot mode will take place on World’s Edge; the second week will see Legends return to Kings Canyon.
Evo Shield – New to the Apex arsenal of items, the Evo Shield gets more powerful as Legends inflict damage on their enemies, becoming stronger than Epic Body Shields. Evo Shields change colors as players progress, but their distinctive glow will help players identify them.
Assimilation Themed Apex Packs – Unlock a set of 24 themed, limited-time cosmetics, in addition to 6 matching legendary character + weapon skins and 12 other epics. Players can obtain these new in-game cosmetics through direct purchase for Apex Coins, direct unlock with Crafting Metals or random unlock with Event Apex Packs.
Octane Heirloom Set – players who unlock all 24 System Override cosmetics will also receive the Octane Heirloom set for free.
