Apex Legends is a brand new battle royale game from Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment. It was announced and released today as a free-to-play game on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Apex Legends is apparently set in the Titanfall universe but it doesn’t seem to carry any characters of the Titanfall franchise itself. It is a free-to-play first-person shooter that is going to be monetized with a battle pass just like Fortnite Battle Royale.

Apex Legends delivers a squad-based battle royale experience with a uniquely Respawn flavor. Players will select from one of eight Legends – each with their own unique abilities and playstyles – and the last team standing wins. Combatants can choose from unique characters like Bloodhound, the tracker who can see recent enemy activity on the map, or Lifeline, a battlefield medic who can shield teammates and bring them back from the brink of death. Balanced squads and teamwork are critical, as each Legend is easy to pick up and learn, but challenging to master.
The first season of Apex Legends is scheduled to kick off in March and will give players the opportunity to purchase a Battle Pass to gain access to exclusive cosmetic items earned through gameplay. Apex Legendswill follow a seasonal model with each themed season bringing new content to the game in the form of new weapons, new Legends, new skins and more.
Here is a gameplay trailer giving an overview of the mechanics and different gameplay modes in Apex Legends.
