Rumor: Titanfall Battle Royale Game Apex Legends Coming Very Soon
Some rumors keep appearing about a new free to play battle royale game to be released next Monday, it’s called Apex Legends and it’s set in the Titanfall universe.
This rumor started to appear online by the voice of several streamers who attended a “secret event”, but eSports reporter Rod Breslau got more information from insiders at Respawn Entertainment, and claims that Apex Legends will be free to play, have different heroes each with unique abilities, maps up to 60 players and teams up to 3 members.
He also went on to mention that the game will feature microtransactions and loot boxes for in-game content and cosmetic items. Rod compared the approach for Apex Legends to be similar to how Overwatch handles microtransactions.
Supposedly Respawn had invited some of the top streamers around the world along with esports pros from other Battle Royale games to playtest Apex Legends in Los Angeles. Many stated anonymously that the game felt good to play and that they were excited about it.
I am a bit surprised that it has taken this long for a top dog developer to jump onto the free to play battle royale train. They have to be thinking if Fortnite can become the success that it is, why not us? Even though I believe that Fortnite is a fantastic game, I do believe that the free to play model they use might be the biggest factor on what brings in such a huge player base for Epic. While Call of Duty: Blackout and PUBG’s entries require some compensation, it is refreshing to hear that a big developer will try to take a crack at the newest fad in games.
