Apex Legends Amassed One Million Players in Under Eight Hours

Titanfall Apex Legends is Reportedly a Free-to-Play Titanfall Battle Royale Game Coming Tomorrow

Over the weekend, the surprise reveal of a new battle royale game called Apex Legends was spoiled by the many influencers and YouTubers that developer Respawn Entertainment invited to play the game ahead of its launch. Yesterday saw the title already break over one million players.

"Our goal in every game you play is that you come in with a plan but you leave with a story", Drew McCoy, lead producer of Apex Legends, said in a press release. Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale shooter (yes, like Fortnite), and best of all, you can download it right now.

Apex Legends is borrowing a lot from other games.

Gameplay consists of the familiar squad-based formula, and in Apex Legends teams have full control on where they choose to drop with the Jumpmaster system. Players can opt for characters like Lifeline, the battlefield medic who can shield teammates from harm as well as revive them, or tracker Bloodhound, who can see recent enemy movement via the map. "It's their abilities that set them apart, so you'll want to pick the Legend that matches your preferred playstyle and complements your squad".

Apex Legends is out now for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

The latter is perhaps the most jarring omission for many Titanfall veterans, with Zampella revealing why they made a decision to cut the feature from the game. Additional seasons will be released in the future, with different themes and new content as well as Legends, skins, and weapons. They will never include any items that offer a gameplay advantage (there is no way to purchase a gameplay advantage in Apex Legends through any mechanic).

The game is now available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, but players on each platform can not squad up together, while other battle royale titles like Fortnite feature full cross-play between multiple platforms, including mobile.
