‘Apex Legends’ Reveal Stream: Where to Watch Respawn Battle Royale Announcement

Adjust Comment Print

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.

Whether you're playing Apex Legends on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or PC, knowing the controls is going to be key to staying on top and helping your squad come out victorious. Following some legal issues with Activision, the game developer set out to start his own company and begin his work on Titanfall. Instead, Respawn has made some tweaks to the tried-and-true battle royale formula for Apex Legends, like introducing a class system that's built around squad play.

There are no pilotable mechs in the game. The game supports up to 60 players at once, and brings some new mechanics to the battle royale genre, including squad revivals, a contextual ping communication system, and more.

Reports have also begun to pop up on other sites that Apex Legends has completely replaced a third Titanfall game - according to Kotaku, Titanfall 3 isn't now in development and Apex Legends is what we're getting instead.

The Titanfall & Titanfall 2 studio, which these days is but one limb on the EA millipede, has confirmed they'll be revealing the game today, and that Apex Legends is indeed its name.

You can take a look at Zampella's teasing tweet below.

"Our goal in every game you play is that you come in with a plan but you leave with a story", Drew McCoy, lead producer of Apex Legends, said in a press release.

Be sure to read the entire piece over at Eurogamer, which provides some more detail about the development of Apex Legends.

Mackey McCandlish still seemed optimistic about the franchise to VG247, making it clear that the story of Titanfall will continue and that there's also a chance that another team could make Titanfall 3.
