The rumoured and now confirmedApex Legends is a free-to-play Battle Royale game from Respawn set in the Titanfall universe - though reportedly without Titans themselves. Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale shooter (yes, like Fortnite), and best of all, you can download it right now.
As Titanfall fans continue to wait for a potential Titanfall 3, franchise developer Respawn Entertainment is coming to the table with its own battle royale spinoff called Apex Legends. It is reassuring to have Respawn addressing these gameplay concerns early on in Apex Legends' lifecycle. Apex Legends still requires Xbox LIVE Gold to play on Xbox One.
This afternoon, Zampella took to Twitter to talk about the exciting plans that Respawn has moving forward for Apex Legends.
The phenomenal success of Fortnite and PUBG Mobile have ensured that every big game publisher will try its hand at the battle royale genre.
Apex Legends is monetised in a number of ways, for starters, a seasonal "Battle Pass" is going to be available for dedicated players who want additional rewards.
But those YouTubers, Influences and journalists who have had time with the game last week will likely be under embargo until much later this evening too.More news: Pels want four first-round picks from Lakers for Davis
"You'll have supernatural MOBA-like hero abilities and play either solo or in a team of three as you battle other players for delicious chicken dinners".
Respawn has said the number of total players may increase over time.
Characters in Apex Legends also have special traits.
This isn't to say that the game won't eventually include a solo and duos mode, but now, it is not being offered.
The latter is perhaps the most jarring omission for many Titanfall veterans, with Zampella revealing why they made a decision to cut the feature from the game.
