EA and Respawn Entertainment have announced their version of a free-to-play battle royale game in the form of Apex Legends. The game is set in the same universe as Titanfall and it is already out to play starting today. Apex Legends is available for download for PC via Origin, PlayStation 4 and XBox One.
Apex Legends is said to feature "a cast of unique characters, squad-based gameplay, innovative characters and more".
Apex Legends showcases several new genre-leading innovations, starting before players even start the match. Once players are ready to begin, they’ll choose their drop point with the Jumpmaster system, giving each squad full control over exactly where they drop in. Is it smarter to head straight for the most valuable loot and risk early conflict with other teams, or make for one of the outlying areas to plot an attack and let other squads pick each other off?
The innovations don’t stop there as Apex Legends also delivers Respawn Beacons, one-time use locations where defeated teammates can be revived, a contextual Ping communication system that allows players to call out enemies, weapons, locations and more with the push of a button, and an intelligent inventory system which automatically attaches gear and equipment to the appropriate weapons once players pick them up. All together it creates a battle royale experience unlike any other, complete with Respawn’s commitment to top-notch quality and fun.Read more at https://www.mmorpg.com/news/apex-legends-is-a-f2p-multiplatform-battle-royale-game-and-its-available-right-now-1000051391#QOy0AvwC4X8rmDbf.99
