Respawn To Announce Apex Legends Today; Will Be A Battle Royale Title

  • Titanfall battle royale rumored to launch soon, minus the Titans

"Apex Legends" is aiming to innovate in the battle royale genre, implementing the Jumpmaster system, which lets players choose where they're dropping into the map.

As Titanfall fans continue to wait for a potential Titanfall 3, franchise developer Respawn Entertainment is coming to the table with its own battle royale spinoff called Apex Legends.

Apex Legends features up to 60 players in teams of three.

Like the first two Titanfall games, Apex Legends runs on a modified Source engine.

Respawn Entertainment is not making Titanfall 3. As a free-to-play release there is also rumoured to be microtransactions in the form of cosmetic loot boxes similar to the system found in Overwatch. "It's the flawless recipe for a marketing plan to go awry, so why have that - let's just ship the game and let players play". Kotaku news editor Jason Schreier stated that he had heard from his connections that Respawn was indeed working on Titanfall 3. "The Titanfall universe is continuing". The game's storyline takes place after Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith or after Anakin Skywalker becomes Darth Vader. "That doesn't mean there never could be another team that makes Titanfall".

Eurogamer spoke to Respawn ahead of Apex Legends' reveal and confirmed that this wasn't the case though with the studio saying Titanfall 3 was not in development.

Whether you're playing Apex Legends on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or PC, knowing the controls is going to be key to staying on top and helping your squad come out victorious.

"Our desire is to be completely open and transparent with our player base, and part of that expands to how we talk about problems, and we understand this game is gonna have a skeptical audience", McCoy explains.
