More Titanfall Coming After Apex Legends Launch, Respawn Says

Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale shooter (yes, like Fortnite), and best of all, you can download it right now.

Rumored throughout the past week and officially revealed Monday, Apex Legends is free-to-play and available now on PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Apex Legends was released yesterday during a livestream on developer Respawn Entertainment's channel. The new game comes from the makers of Titanfall whose upcoming sequel is also in the pipeline. According to McCoy, it seems as though the team was experimenting with battle royale but decided to make it a full-fledged game rather then a mode tacked on to another game.

The game's cast of eight unique characters, called "Legends", all use specific skills that open up to different types of playstyles. 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. Apex Legends also has seasons, and the battle passes unlock exclusive vanity items for these timed events.

Instagram Egg Speaks Out In Super Bowl Ad
The page was set up at the start of January, and encouraged people to make its only photo the most-liked post on Instagram . Step aside, Kylie Jenner: Instagram's record-breaking egg and Hulu are collaborating on a big reveal for Super Bowl LIII.

Meaning, if the Lakers win tonight, they'll only be a game back of the eighth seed with a healthy James on the roster. Kyle Kuzma (left hip strain) and Josh Hart (left knee tendinitis) also returned Thursday.


Wow, The Internet Really Didn't Enjoy Maroon 5's Superbowl Halftime Show
They also brought out rapper Travis Scott and Outkast member Big Boi to sing Sicko Mode and The Way You Move , respectively. Maroon 5 took the stage during the halfway point of football's biggest game of the season.


The latter is perhaps the most jarring omission for many Titanfall veterans, with Zampella revealing why they chose to cut the feature from the game. I'm not sure how I feel about the microtransactions, but the game is fun. Apex Coins are the game's premium currency and can be used to buy Apex Packs (the game's version of loot boxes), Legends and shop items such as character and weapon skins. However, you should be able to find them pretty quick in your Legend customization menu and Armory since they're all titled "Greatness Awaits".

Being a squad-based battle royale, the last team standing wins the match.

KitGuru Says: Apex Legends appears to be doing well at this point but it will be interesting to see how many players stick around over the next few weeks.
