Apex Legends Is Out Now!
The battle royale spin-off Titanfall, Apex Legends is out now. This is a free-to-play battle royale shooter that is set in the Titanfall universe minus the wall running and the Titans.
In Apex Legends there will only be 60 players pitted amongst each other in three man squads. The map is also smaller since there are only 60 players but since it does have verticality it does make up for the space. Also, a one-time use Respawn Beacon is available, this means that your squadmates are able to bring you to life once eliminated in the game.

Get to choose from the different characters available in the game. Right now there are 8 unique legends “ to choose from. Each one of these legends will have their own abilities, backstory, and personalities. This is actually a great way to form your three-man squads as you choose characters that will have abilities that will work with your playstyle.
The game does offer a seasonal Battle Pass, with each season lasting about 3 months. These Battle Passes will only have cosmetic items available in tiers. Check out the Battle Pass road map below:
According to the game’s FAQs new legends will be added over time and are available to be bought with real-world money or through gameplay. Loot boxes are also available for purchase and they are called Apex Packs. These packs will have a “bad luck protection” feature where when a player has opened 29 packs consecutively and is not to get a Legendary item, the next pack is guaranteed to have one.
