Titanfall Apex Legends Battle Free-To-Play Royale Mode Lands This Week

Titanfall Apex Legends Battle Free-To-Play Royale Mode Lands This Week

If you didn't see the kerfuffle this past weekend, Apex Legends is apparently a free-to-play battle royale title set in the Titanfall universe.

Vince Zampella, CEO of Respawn Entertainment, also revealed that we'll be able to check out the livestream of the game tomorrow at 8 a.m. PT! While it sounds like it's set in the Titanfall universe, it won't star any Titans.

We'll be posting all the news from the official reveal when it drops tomorrow, so be sure to check back to see what's happening with Apex Legends! According to an anonymous source that spoke with Kotaku, "it plays like Titanfall mixed with Overwatch and Blackout from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4".

Other gameplay details revealed by Schreier also hinted at where EA are pitching the game, which is somewhere between Overwatch and Rainbow Six Siege.

Apex Legends will feature classes/heroes with unique abilities, maximum of 60 players per server, maximum of 3 players per team (trios) to compliment each other.

"Perhaps the studio made a decision to switch engines for Titanfall 3, releasing Apex Legends (which is also reportedly on Source) as a stopgap as it pushed back the release of a proper third Titanfall game". People like Dr. Disrespect, StoneMountain 64, DooM49, and lots more are using the tag "Apex Partner" to confirm that they're part of the group invited to playtest the game.

Supposedly, Apex Legends will actually be running on a heavily modified version of Valve's Source Engine.

The Titanfall Battle Royale game will be called, Apex Legends and will be available for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
