Respawn’s Free-To-Play ‘Apex Legends’ Battle Royale Available Now

"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.

Why it matters: Are people suffering from Battle Royale fatigue? It also helps that it's from Respawn, a studio known for its excellent shooters.

YouTuber Daniel "KEEMSTAR" Keem has revealed that he is considering hosting a tournament for new battle royale game Apex Legends - and even suggested a prize pool of $100,000.

The game is set thirty years after the events of Titanfall 2. Respawn has also stated that first season for Apex Legends will begin in March. Each time a player levels up, they will earn rewards like an Apex Pack, Legend Tokens, or both. Additional seasons will be released in the future, with different themes and new content as well as Legends, skins, and weapons.




I think we've demonstrated with our previous games that we care about having an ethical, transparent relationship with the consumer.

Ahead of this, Jason Schreier on Kotaku - who is generally a very reliable industry bloodhound - has gone live with assorted alleged details about Apex Legends. If you do encounter it, however, the advice is to shut the game down, and fire it up again. Secondly, many of Titanfall's movement mechanics, such as wallrunning, aren't present here. Cross-play is not supported at the moment, though Respawn Entertainment and EA left the door open on that as well. Running, sliding, climbing and shooting simply feel fluid and satisfying in a similar way that Titanfall does, and the game's myriad of unique player abilities, from smoke bombs to invisibility, bring Respawn's previous shooter to mind.

"While players with the minimum specifications will be able to play Apex Legends just fine, those looking to get the best possible experience will want to ensure they meet the recommended specs for smooth 60fps gameplay". But hey, the game is free, so why not try it out?
