Review in Progress: Apex Legends

February 07, 2019 1 min read

After Titanfall 2 was unceremoniously fed to the grinder and released between Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare in 2016, I was curious as to what we'd see next from Respawn Entertainment. But, with the popularity of battle royale games exploding into the mainstream shortly after, it's not surprising that this was their next move.

But, what does surprise me is just how far removed Apex Legends is from Titanfall. Gone is the single-player campaign, wall running, and giant mechs. Instead, Apex features a colorful cast of characters, known as "Legends," with elements straight out of Overwatch, Fortnite, and Call of Duty's Blackout mode. When combined, it creates a solid foundation for potentially one of the best battle royale games to date.
