"There are some people who think there are too many battle royale games or it's a fad, the world thinks we're making Titanfall 3 and we're not - this is what we're making", he said. It's a free-to-play battle royale that, interestingly, won't let you use the Titan mech suits that make Titanfall so iconic.

At this point, Apex Legends has been available for less than 24 hours but the game has already been downloaded over one million times.

Set in the Titanfall™ universe, Apex Legends shakes up the battle royale genre with a cast of unique characters, squad-based gameplay, innovative mechanics and more.

Another innovative aspect of Apex Legends in the 'ping system" - which allows you "ping' location, objects, and enemies to draw your teammate's attention to it.

The administrators will retain a further 122 employees at warehouse functions to assist them in winding down operations. Those stores were rebranded as Sunrise Records, a chain of now 80 stores in North America.

Respawning in Apex Legends can take a while and respawned players will not have any gear or weapons when they return to the game.

Apex Legends appears to be a rather demanding game in terms of system requirements, and EA have released the minimum and recommended spec requirements for those who want to play on the PC. Balanced squads and teamwork are critical, as each Legend is easy to pick up and learn, but challenging to master. One of the most notable ways it does this is with the inclusion of character abilities. All together it creates a battle royale experience unlike any other, complete with Respawn's commitment to top-notch quality and fun. The microtransaction model in Apex Legends will be primarily for cosmetics, according to Slasher.

While Apex Legends was only supposed to be unveiled yesterday, Respawn decided to make it officially available to download for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
