However, Respawn has in the past run special modes that players had long wanted for a limited time and brought them back permanently at a later date. One mode that was added for a limited time and then returned later was when a version of the game's ranked mode was added during the Bloodhound event. Then in Season 2, the official ranked mode gamers enjoy now launched. As for when the Solos mode will launch, the Iron Crown Collection event will start on August 13 and run through August 27.
Respawn has been working to improve Apex Legends, particularly to rid the game of cheaters. One interesting move it has made is to match AI-detected cheaters together in matches. Apex Legends Season 2 Battle Charge trailer landed in late June and teased significant changes for the game including the flyers and more.
