Titanfall development studio Respawn’s free-to-play battle royale game, Apex Legends, “THE NEXT EVOLUTION OF BATTLE ROYALE” came out recently for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
Apex Legends is set on a futuristic map full of rivers, mountains, and clusters of buildings. There’s this backstory which features a world full of mercenaries and outlaws and the “Apex Games,” the battle royale that 20 squads of three each take part in. The story adds color to the characters and facilitates the presence of an in-game announcer, all the basics are like any other battle royale game such as Pubg and fortnite: You and and your squad drop into a map (the currently only available map is called Kings Canyon, more may be added in the future according to the game’s FAQ), scrounge up all the weapons you can, and try to eliminate other teams as a damage-dealing ring steadily closes in.
If you were bored by other battle royal games such as Fortnite and Pubg, this is what you’ve been waiting for. The change of characters and maps does facilitate a lot in making the game look and feel better than the current battle royal games out there. Apex Legends is the go to stop for the current Battle royal game players all around the world.
Apex Legend’s Character Abilities
It’s unlikely that Apex Legends will see new items such as there were in fortnite, but the characters already do some of that work. There is this Mirage’s decoy ability which is a Fortnite’s snowman decoy, a very simple distraction tactic. Wraith’s portals are Fortnite’s rifts-to-go, transporting players instantaneously to a more advantageous position. There’s also the Pathfinder’s grappling hook which is Fortnite’s grappling hook, an escape route and distance-closer, and also the Lifeline’s healing drone is Fortnite’s campfire. Caustic’s gas grenades are Fortnite’s gas grenades, and his gas traps are Fortnite’s spike traps, and so on so forth.
- Legendary Characters
- The Ultimate Squad
- Strategic Battle Royal
Though, only time will tell, if Apex Legends will be the go to option of the Battle Royale enthusiasts or they will stay loyal to their previous battle royal games such as Fortnite and Pubg. Apex Legends seems to pretty good and will most probably be a hit. The lack of support for mobiles might be a problem but we’ll have to wait if there’s any mobile version out.
