A highly competitive multiplayer first-person shooter game

A review by Kevin

Apex Legends is a FPS battle-royale developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts on the 4th of February, 2019. At its released, Apex Legends was made available on Windows PC, Xbox and Mac. It was considered as a major competitor of the world-class game, Fortnite. Apex Legends rapidly grew in popularity at its release, with 2.5 million players joining the hype within 24 hours. Within 72 hours, the number had risen to 10 million, and by the end of the first week, Apex Legends had reached a whopping 25 million players. One month after its release, the game had more than 50 million players.

Differences between Fortnite and Apex Legends

Apex Legends is very similar in its gameplay to Fortnite. However the major difference is that in Apex Legends, you are always in a team of three, playing against 19 enemy squads (each which has 3 teams). Other differences include the characters you can choose from. In Apex Legends, you can pick between nine heroes (called “Legends”) each which has their own set of unique defensive and offensive abilities. Each hero also has an ultimate.

A Titanfall sequel?

Apex Legends takes place and borrows its lore from the popular Titanfall series, which was also developed by Respawn Entertainment. However, the game itself is not considered a sequel to Titanfall. Both games simply take place within the same universe.

How is Apex Legends played?

In Apex Legends, each squad must first scour the map (which is in an island) for weapons, ammo and other items which they will need during their fight with other squads. Each team must kill players of the other teams – the last squad which remains alive is the squad which wins. Note that, not the entire squad needs to be alive for that squad to win. If only one member of the squad is still alive, that one member can carry his team to victory. Additionally, when a player dies a “banner” is spawned at the spot of their death. If a team member is able to carry that banner into a “Spawn Beacon”, that player will be respawned. In Apex Legends, team work is essential. The developers have therefore made it quite easy for team members to communicate with each other – using chat, voice chat as well as specialized pings to indicate certain positions on the map.
