30/11/2022 Respawn Entertainment has confirmed that the Winter Express LTM will be available in Apex Legends from December 6 in the Wintertide Collection Event. The copy has been updated to reflect this.

Are you eagerly awaiting the Apex Legends Season 16 release date? Well, you’ll be pleased to know that there’s a lot more to look forward to before then – even if we’re excited to learn more about the next new legend. Respawn Entertainment is teasing it’s Christmas event and – more excitingly – the return of the Winter Express LTM. First featuring in Season 3’s Holo-Day Bash Collection Event, this would be the fourth time battle royale players will be able to jump into the high-intensity action on offer.

Why do we think Apex Legends’ Winter Express LTM is coming back? Well, Respawn Entertainment tweeted an image of the World’s Edge train – which serves as the setting for this LTM – with a series of snowflakes. It didn’t explicitly say that the Winter Express LTM was coming back, but it seems very likely given what Respawn Entertainment has offered players in the past – and the tweet, which you can see for yourself on the PlayApex social media account here.

Following on from this, Respawn Entertainment has confirmed that the Winter Express LTM will be available from December 6 during the Wintertide Collection Event.

If you’re new to Apex Legends, though, and you’re wondering what the Winter Express LTM actually is, allow us to explain.

In Apex Legends’ Winter Express LTM, three squads of three players go toe-to-toe in a round-based deathmatch where the goal is to capture the World’s Edge train or eliminate all your opponents. You start with a predetermined loadout, though, so you don’t need to worry about scrambling for weapons. The train itself is moving most of the time, but stops at each station to afford players a chance to flank around the outside.

However, if you want to win, you need to keep your wits about you and stay on the train itself – as the entirity of it is a capture point. It’s also worth remembering that you don’t go DBNO in Winter Express; you just get eliminated from the round. Each round a different squad spawns on the train itself and the first team to three round wins claims victory.
