Apex Legends has turned out to be a big hit and Respawn has continue to bring in new content on a regular basis to keep things interesting. Now it seems that the company has big plans to take it to new levels, and we’re “probably going to see the shooter becoming more than just a battle royale game.”
Apex Legends’ game director Chad Grenier hinted at this in more detail in an interview with Eurogamer:
“Right now, we’re a battle royale game. I think if you look into the future, we have a lot of conversations of, you know, should we expand beyond battle royale? We have this roster of legends that people love – how else can we use them?”
What none of us stopped to realize, however, is that the painting for this has been on the wall all this time. Just like Call of...
Apex Legends launched to extreme success and, like every other battle royale out there, you’ll get to enjoy some Halloween festivities during the spookiest part of the year. The new Fight or Fright event kicked off on October 22 and runs until November 3, so let me tell you about all the fun that comes along with it.
The Apex Legends Fight of Fright event starts off with some new cosmetics to get you in the mood. I’m talking about all kinds of skins that range from crazy, wicked witches to the creepiest of clowns and just about everything in between. EA is even including all 24 of the items from last year’s even in various bundles and offers in the shop, including the Sweet Dreams Caustic and Wicked Harvest Bloodhound.
From here, you’ll also find that Loba and Revenant can be dressed in brand-new skins...
From the start, free-to-play games rubbed just about everyone the wrong way with ugly paywalls and micro-transactions that were all but required to make any progress or stand a chance at winning. Like all things in life, free to play games have evolved to the point that you don’t need bottomless pockets or a trust fund to have fun or stand a chance at winning. Micro-transactions still exists but are far from required, and the following list of free action games are more than enough to keep you entertained without breaking the bank.
Warframe is one of the best free to play actions games available right now. It mixes DNA from games like Mass Effect and Halo with martial arts-inspired combat into a single science fiction world ripe with decent graphics and addicting gameplay. According to the official website, Warframe has more than 50 million...
We’ve all been begging for Respawn to launch Titanfall 3 for a long time, but what we got was Apex Legends. The game isn’t bad, really, but the company literally shelved Titanfall 3 for Apex Legends and, to a lesser extent, Star Wars: Fallen Order. Fast forward to April and it seems as if Season Five of Apex Legends might include something Titanfall, but it’s still a far cry from a new game. Now, it looks like Titanfall 3 might never happen as Respawn has confirmed that it’s not even working on it.
In an interview with IGN, Respawn co-founder, Vince Zampella shed some light on the Titanfall series:
“There’s nothing currently in development. Personally like to see some kind of resurrection there. We’ll see if I can make that happen.”
In a completely different statement made on Respawn’s official website for the company’s 10th anniversary,...
Apex Legends Season 5 kicks off on May 12, and with it comes a new legend – Loba – and a new PvE mode called Season Questions. But there’s a lot more to it than that, and this is what you need to know about it.
Apex Legends Season 5 Gameplay Trailer
Apex Legends Season 5 Battle Pass
Along with the new season comes a new battle pass. This one will have over 100 new items that include Legendary Skins, Apex Packs, and probably a bunch of different Loba Skins.
Season Quests are completely new to Apex Legends and, really, any battle royale game out there. Based on what we can tell from the gameplay trailer that we’ve embedded above, the goal will be to help Loba add “rare and valuable treasure” to her collection. You’ll be able to do this by completing the questions that pup-up...
It’s still a little too early to tell, but all signs are pointing to Respawn Entertainment porting Apex Legends over to the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5. Supporting evidence comes straight from the jobs page on Electronic Arts’ website, so the source on this one is actually quite credible.
The job listing is for a Senior Rendering Engineer at Respawn Entertainment, and one of the main duties is to “push next-gen platforms and the PC to their limits on Apex Legends.” Of course, that doesn’t specifically refer to the PS5 or XBX, but the reference is pretty clear. Both systems are scheduled to arrive for the holiday season this year, so it makes complete sense, especially given the games popularity among players of all ages.
It’s so popular, in fact, that Respawn is currently working on porting it over to mobile devices and could,...
As part of the April 7th update to Apex Legends (4.2 update) Duos was brought back to Apex Legends after being available for a limited time a few times in 2019 and more recently for Valentine’s Day 2020. Duos is now a permanent fixture in Apex Legends as is a permanent map rotation. Duos came back because there was always a positive effect on the game every time it was made available for a limited time. Solos, on the other hand, was a completely different story.
In a recent post on EA forums, it was explained that Solos just doesn’t fit with the game’s underlying co-op elements. Two- or three-person teams work well, and duos even had a positive effect in terms of “the game’s healthy in regards to queue times and gameplay systems in addition to reinforcing teamplay.” Because Solos mode eliminates the cooperative...
Apex Legends has evolved almost continuously since it launched in early 2019 with new maps, weapons, operators, and various improvements yet, here we are more than a year in and crossplay has yet to be added to the game. Competing games like Fortnite, Destiny 2, and even Call of Duty Warzone have it, so why doesn’t Apex Legends? Well, the General Manager of Apex Legends, Dusty Welch, and the game’s director, Chad Grenier, sat down with Game Informer to discuss season 4 and in that interview, they were asked about the status of crossplay.
With crossplay originally being discussed when Apex Legends was launched, where it’s at is a question on just about everybody’s mind. The truth is, that it’s difficult to implement and just isn’t ready yet.
“I think on crossplay we see it's something that is kind of expected in the industry and is...
The last time we heard about Titanfall 3 was way back in April of 2019 when Respawn announced shelving the project to devote its time to Apex Legends and Star Wars: Fallen Order. Sadly, we still can’t report that Titanfall 3 is coming or even that Respawn is working on ti again, but a new hint in Game Informer Magazine does shed some hope that some more Titanfall content will be coming to Apex Legends in season five.
Word comes via a Reddit poster who shared a picture of a page in the latest edition of GIM and, while we can’t make out who the developer is thanks to a poorly taken picture, we can make out something clear as day
“We're always bringing in stuff from the Titanfall universe. We built an awesome world in Titanfall 1 and 2 and wanted to make sure we're...
Apex Legends’ Valentine’s Day Event may have been delayed, but it's alive and well now. The famous lovers day event isn’t a perfect fit for a lot of video games, but, with a little makeup, even a battle royale like Apex Legends can make it work. Since it is all about love, we’ll have the choice to play duos again, making it more challenging to get that champion title.
Besides the duo matchmaking, players that log in during the event will be rewarded with a 2020’s Valentine badge. There will also be two new weapon charms, Nessie and Pathfinder, available to purchase. This wouldn't be an Apex event without the double exp boost “Double up”. You will be able to get up to 2000xp every day just for playing with your duo partner.
Speaking about events, last year's rewards will also be available to buy...
