The new Apex Legends season, Upheaval, marks the return of Solos. Solos will replace Duos, bringing back solo gameplay for the first time in five years. The game will be optimized for Solo gameplay, with special mechanics designed just for allowing players to excel in this game mode. Lobbies will also go down to 50 players, down from 60.

The new Solos mode will last from 7 May 2024 until 24 June 2024. This means it'll be available for half of Season 21. Since it's replacing Duos, players won't be able to play Duos during this time.

Apex Legends' new Upheaval season is set to bring a ton of new changes to the game, as well as bring back old mechanics and game modes that players love. With the return of Solos, the introduction of new Apex Artifacts, and the game's new Legend Alter, Season 21 is sure to be one for the books. Players have just a few days until it starts.
