Respawn just announced its holiday-themed event for Apex Legends called the Holo-Day bash 2020 and it will be bringing back fan-favorite Winter Express LTM.
Apex Legends fans already experienced the winter-themed Winter express LTM back in 2019. And due to popular demand, Respawn is bringing it back once again with more exciting changes. Alongside the LTM, some old legendary skins bundles paired with some new ones are also coming to the Apex store.
Furthermore, Respawn has also decided to include sales that will start from November 24th and will last until January 4th, 2021. In short, from this Black Friday, almost every week players will find something unique in the cosmetic store.
A Month of Sales

Holo-day bash 2020 will go live at:
Limited-time mode: Winter Express
The train is back in World’s Edge just for Winter Express, and this time it’s not the only vehicle descending into the valley around Epicenter. The supply ships from Kings Canyon are also flying around the frozen explosion.
For those of you who haven’t played it before, Winter Express is a round-based mode where three squads battle for control of the train as it makes its way around World’s Edge. This year, when your squad respawns after a round has finished, you will spawn on your own supply ship as it follows the train. From here, your squad will be able to survey the battlefield and skydive into combat as the train arrives at its next station and the objective unlocks. The squad that won the previous round will respawn directly on the train.
This time around Respawn has also added a new station for the train to stop at: Derailment is the scene of a catastrophic accident that occurred as a cargo train travelling the opposite direction took a tricky turn at high speed. This new station has a variety of flanking opportunities, and a unique rotation under the bridge where the train stops. This allows you to quickly change which side of the objective you’re attacking.
These changes should significantly reduce some of the long respawn times between rounds that players experienced last year. Now players can spawn earlier on the supply ships, and the longest section of track between stations is now divided in half with Derailment.
Additionally, some other changes have also been made to accommodate new legends that weren’t part of the game during the last holiday LTM.
Holo-Day Rewards Track
This year, Holo-Day Bash contains a rewards track with all-new unlockables. The rewards track will be available at the same time as Winter Express.
