Apex Legends: A Battle Royale Set in the Titanfall Universe


Apex Legends is the brand new battle royale game from Respawn Entertainment, the studio that brought you the Titanfall franchise. It is a free-to-play first-person shooter that is going to be monetized with a battle pass just like Fortnite Battle Royale.

The game is now available to play through Origin on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Whether you're a battle royale vet looking for something new or just want to see what the hype is all about, here's everything you need to know about Apex Legends.

Respawn has been careful to stress the fact that Apex Legends isn't a true sequel to Titanfall 2, though it's the same universe.

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.

That means Apex Legends won't be launching on Steam and will likely remain exclusive to Origin on PC.

However, McCoy said cross-progression and cross-purchases will never be a possibility in the game.

Despite Respawn's comments, some players may find themselves disappointed by the way in which Apex Legends locks off two of the eight playable characters behind a paywall.

If you're imagining people duking it out in Titanfall's well-established giant mechs, you're out of luck.

Last week during an event for Apex Legends, the game's design director Mackey McCandlish, the core Titanfall team is working on Apex and there were no other projects in development.

The phenomenal success of Fortnite and PUBG Mobile have ensured that every big game publisher will try its hand at the battle royale genre. In response to this possible distrust, the team at Respawn have given players a detailed explanation of how microtransactions will be utilized in Apex Legends.

Does Apex Legends play like Titanfall? The Apex Legends Store now allows players to purchase bundles of "Apex Coins" for set prices.
