Respawn Launched Battle Royale Apex Legends on PC, PS4 and XB1

Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment have launched a free-to-play Battle Royale set in the Titanfall universe. Apex Legends is available now on PC, PS4 and Xbox One and presents players with a cast of unique characters, squad-based gameplay, innovative mechanics and more.

“Our goal in every game you play is that you come in with a plan but you leave with a story,” said Drew McCoy, Lead Producer for Apex Legends. “We’re building a game that is not only going to deliver a fun and memorable experience at launch, but something we can keep growing for a long time to come.”

Before the match begins, players are able to choose their drop point, use Respawn Beacons, take advantage of the Ping communication system to call out enemies and much more.

The first season of Apex Legends is scheduled to kick off in March and will give players the opportunity to purchase a Battle Pass to gain access to exclusive cosmetic items earned through gameplay. Apex Legends will follow a seasonal model with each themed season bringing new content to the game in the form of new weapons, new Legends, new skins and more.

In under 8 hours since the launch of the game, Apex Legends had seen over a million unique players.

While set in the Titanfall universe, the game does not feature wall-running. The developers promise to try new stuff as they go, however.
