[XB1/PS4/PC] Apex Legends - 'Titanless Royale'

Respawn stealth-dropped their new game last night, a new F2P Battle Royale.



Didn't have chance to try it out last night but what I've seen on Twitch has me interested.

Looks good to me, but it's only 3 person teams so I need to get on with some friends.

Looks identical to Blackout.

I guess if you take the Titans out of Titanfall you are left with COD.

Anyone have problems connecting on PS4? It hardly ever manages to connect to the EA servers on startup and pretty much disconnects me after a game and I return to the lobby. Tried all usual stuff, even changing my DNS to Google's. Fibre is a solid 50+mb. My mate who has 5mb is working fine! Can't figure it out...

Loved the 4 games I did manage to play..really satisfying and slick.

Really impressed by this. I've played loads of PUBG and this improves massively on that in terms of fluidity and smoothness of movement. It feels like a really polished blockbuster game whereas PUBG still feels a little bit janky.

It's got the chunky more frantic gunplay of Blackout but I played the beta of that and couldn't stand it. This feels great.

The ping system is also quite possible a landmark innovation for FPS teamwork.

Had my first go last night & very impressed, despite being rubbish at it. I've been playing Blackout (solo) for the last month, so it's going to take a while to get used to the way this game plays & getting used to playing in teams.

The gunplay is solid & as mentioned above, the Ping System is fantastic & you just know that is going to be "borrowed" for every other Battle Royale/FPS team game going forward...

Had another few hours on this over the weekend & it continues to impress. Even managed to win two games back-to-back but I was just lucky & had good random team-mates in those games. Definitely helps that you do all stay together as anytime you have a lone-wolf in your team, it NEVER ends well.

It's just a shame that we are about to enter a busy period of good-looking new titles, that will no doubt distract me away, but I'll definitely keep dipping in & out on this little gem of a game...
