Apex Legends was released out of nowhere this past Monday, a brand new class based (similar to Overwatch) Battle Royale FPS game on PC, PS4, and Xbox for free. The game is developed by Respawn, of Titanfall fame, and published by EA. With no prelaunch advertising, it climbed to the top of Twitch with over 500k viewers, and boasted 1.5 million players within its first 24 hours. Also surprisingly for EA, the loot boxes are entirely cosmetic Ė no pay to win in this game like Battlefront. Iím not saying this is a Fortnite killer, but this game is going to compete. Itís the real deal for sure, and has a AAA level of polish.
Anyone play this game yet? I'm looking forward to downloading it and giving it a shot. Watched a stream earlier and it looked pretty good.
