Titanfall battle royale game Apex Legends ‘to be released on Monday’

Titanfall battle royale game Apex Legends ‘to be released on Monday’

Matches will support up to 60 players, with 3-player groups being the maximum option for team-play.

Apex Legends should actually be launching tomorrow, February 4, which should please fans of both Titanfall and battle royale games like Fortnite, which has now become mainstream. According to Kotaku's Jason Schreier, he was tipped off about the game last month, and was told that it "plays like Titanfall mixed with Overwatch and Blackout from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4".

Micro-transactions and lootboxes for cosmetic items and in-game content are said to be in Apex Legends with a very similar approach to that in Overwatch.

Apex Legends is reportedly launching on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Update: Apparently Apex Legends was shown off in an advert during the Super Bowl, but this author only watches real football, so he had no way of knowing.

To further add to this rumor's legitimacy, it seems EA has trademarked "Apex Legend" and yep, you guessed it, for "computer game software".

Supposedly, Apex Legends will actually be running on a heavily modified version of Valve's Source Engine. Plus, it's been over two years since Titanfall 2 was released which is a long time for such a large studio to be developing a simple battle royale game. If you would rather play a Titanfall game with a single-player element, Titanfall 2 is still available on Amazon. Respawn is also now working on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. It nearly feels as if EA tries to sabotage their own games with overlapping release windows.
