Respawn has released a new gameplay trailer for the upcoming Apex Legends: Breakout, the latest season arriving in time for the game's fifth anniversary. Due to launch next week, Breakout will introduce the new ‘Straight Shot’ LTM, offering a battle royale experience for Trios, but with shorter session lengths.
Straight Shot will have players spawn above a random POI, with comprising two teams. The match will start with the ring focusing on a smaller portion of the map, and weapons will spawn kitted as differing rarities. During its short runtime, Straight Shot will have more drops, more fights, and more end-rings, but in much quicker procession.
The Lobby Size is limited to 30 players for shorter rounds, and you can jump back into the queue with your party directly from the death screen. EVO points can also be used to level up your Legend, choosing ability upgrades to tailor each character to your own playstyle.
Breakout rewards, meanwhile, include Fuse, Seer, Rampart, Mad Maggie, Loba, and Valkyrie as unlockable Legends, each with a set of challenges to complete, which unlocks each Legend permanently. You can also gift friends with free themed-items every two weeks, and other rewards include a Reactive Flatline skin, a Legendary skin for Wraith, and matching cosmetics.
