During support, players may lose access to their inventory, store and cosmetic unlocks. and only the default characters will be available.

While the voices of Apex Legends have grown to 16 characters over the course eight seasons, the game initially launched its preseason, or season 0, with only eight characters – six of which were free to play and two that required unlocking with Apex Coins or Legend Tokens. It is not clear whether the symbols that can be played by default include the full lineup of eight of the preseason or just the six legends that should not be unlocked.
Maintenance will take place between 2:30 AM PT and will end by 5:30 AM PT on February 25, which will allow players to experience the game as it has not since the beginning of 2019. Apex usually does not have this kind of scheduled support, which makes players hope they can finally deal with some of the server issues that have been going on since the game started, but especially bad lately.
Other players on Reddit’s support thread have commented on the limited gameplay that will be available during the stay, with some hoping this could lead to Apex introducing a suitable LTM where only the game’s original characters can be played.
