Yesterday during the Super Bowl, buzz began around Respawn Entertainment's latest title, Apex Legends. "No titans. Just as Titanfall and Titanfall 2, Apex Legends will run on a modified version of Valve's Source engine".
"There are some people who think there are too many battle royale games or it's a fad, the world thinks we're making Titanfall 3 and we're not - this is what we're making", Apex Legends' lead producer Drew McCoy told Eurogamer. For the rest of us folks, though, the game was both announced and released today for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
"So you probably don't have to call in sick, just fake food poisoning at lunch and go home early". The decision to forego specific abilities or items ultimately came down to a difference in goals between the core Titanfall games and the new battle royale. While this is the first game that the developer has shipped since Titanfall 2 back in 2016, it's not the only one that Respawn plans on launching this year with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order preparing to release around the holidays. It's a free-to-play battle royale that, interestingly, won't let you use the Titan mech suits that make Titanfall so iconic. While Apex Legends follows traditional battle royale style in a kill-or-be-killed scenario where players must scavenge for loot, there are unique features in the game.
The 'bomb' that shut down Brisbane airport
Police opened fire with bean bag rounds after the man claimed to have a bomb, Police Detective Superintendent Tony Fleming said. He has not been publicly named and will appear in a Brisbane court on Monday.
The stream will happen on February 4 at 12 p.m. EST. on the Play Apex Twitch account.
Reports have also begun to pop up on other sites that Apex Legends has completely replaced a third Titanfall game - according to Kotaku, Titanfall 3 isn't now in development and Apex Legends is what we're getting instead.
The first and most important point regarding downloading Apex Legends on PC is that you'll need to download EA's Origin digital client, install it, and setup a username and password, if you haven't done all that already.
