But how will I follow the story with all these people shooting at me?
Starting today, Respawn is introducing a new way for Apex Legends players to experience the story of the popular battle royale in-game. The new Apex Chronicles add in new challenges and small quests that occur in public matches and follow a short story for an individual legend, all while rewarding players with battle pass stars and cosmetics.
Described as “bite-sized story events,” these chronicles will require players to choose a specific legend, hop into a non-ranked public match, and follow a path that leads to various story beats for the current chapter. More chapters will unlock over time, resulting in one longer questline for the featured legend. The first story, “Old Ways, New Blood,” follows Bloodhound as he tries to rescue an injured prowler and can be triggered upon finding a white raven on World's Edge.
