Apex Legends, Titanfall developer Respawn's new battle royale game, revealed

Apex Legends, Titanfall developer Respawn's new battle royale game, revealed

Titanfall 2 was/is possibly one of the best single-player and multiplayer games of the generation, and it's sad to know that we won't see a sequel anytime soon. Zampella said he is "so overwhelmed" by the news. While there were some rumours suggesting that the team had a new Titanfall under development, McCoy debunked those rumours, claiming that Apex Legends - and obviously the new Star Wars game - was what Respawn has been working on these past few months.

Apex Legends is monetised in a number of ways, for starters, a seasonal "Battle Pass" is going to be available for dedicated players who want additional rewards. Balanced squads and teamwork are critical, as each Legend is easy to pick up and learn, but challenging to master. On top of voice chat support, Apex Legends also has a helpful array of "hotkey" commands that allow players to quickly tell their allies where they are, where an enemy is, or where they saw a gun.

Some of the other features Respawn has implemented include the "Jumpmaster system", which puts one squad member in charge of where the entire squad drops at the beginning of a match. Respawn has also stated that first season for Apex Legends will begin in March. The Company develops and delivers games, content and online services for Internet-connected consoles, mobile devices and personal computers.
