According to leaks, Respawn Entertainment is working on an Apex Legends LTM Hardcore Mode that will be released in January.
Apex Legends Leaks – A Hardcore mode is on the way
Thordan Smash revealed the rumored Hardcore mode on his Twitter. According to Thordan, the new mode will eliminate players much faster and will place a high value on game knowledge. There will be no HUD, the highest available armor will be the base white body shields, and bullets will do more damage than in the base game. There will be no Gold rarity items other than weapon boosts. This means that items like Gold helmets, which allow abilities to recharge faster, and Gold backpacks, which allow players to carry more health items, will be unavailable in the mode.
The leaker also shared a video that reveals details about the mode. Respawn is said to be planning to release the mode in the 15.1 Update, which Thordan claims will be released on January 10th, though this leak comes with the usual caveat that “dates can always change.”

Respawn has yet to say anything about this mode, so for the time being, players can only enjoy the current limited-time mode until the next thing is announced. Winter Express, which is now available in the game, is part of the Wintertide event and tasks players with controlling the train as it travels around World’s Edge.
