Apex Legends is an explosive battle royale with Titanfall roots

It is a free-to-play first-person shooter that is going to be monetized with a battle pass just like Fortnite Battle Royale.

At any rate, the success of EA's launch could simply go to show the enormous popularity of battle royale games these days, and perhaps also reflects positively on the Titanfall universe - in which Apex Legends is set - to some extent.

Only six of those eight are available from the get-go, with the other two left available to unlock gradually through general play or to unlock by purchase if you're that way inclined.

Titanfall battle royale spin-off Apex Legends already looks like being a hit, as the creators hit Twitter to thank fans. Titanfall 2 was/is possibly one of the best single-player and multiplayer games of the generation, and it's sad to know that we won't see a sequel anytime soon.

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. According to McCoy, it seems as though the team was experimenting with battle royale but decided to make it a full-fledged game rather then a mode tacked on to another game.

In a departure to its competitors, Apex Legends pits twenty squads of three against each other, bringing the total player pool to just sixty.

-Master a growing roster of powerful Legends, each with their own unique personality, strengths and abilities that are easy to pick up but challenging to truly master. The new game comes from the makers of Titanfall whose upcoming sequel is also in the pipeline.

After leaking over the weekend, last night Respawn and EA officially launched Apex Legends. Additional seasons will be released in the future, with different themes and new content as well as Legends, skins, and weapons.

The game is now available to play through Origin on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
