When Titanfall studio Respawn gathered members of the press at a hotel in Los Angeles last week, the crowd knew they were going to see a new game, one with a peculiar shroud of secrecy around it. In fact, up until that point, no trace of the title had been talked about, leaked, or discussed before. And afterward, even knowing the game’s name, I was unable to find any shred of its existence on the internet — that is until it starting leaking over the weekend.

But the secrecy is for good reason: Respawn, now owned by Electronic Arts, wants to ensure that its newest product can sidestep every expectation players might impose upon it before they get a chance to boot it up and play. The game is not a sequel to Titanfall 2, but it is set in the Titanfall universe. It’s called Apex Legends, and it’s a free-to-play battle royale game in the vein of Epic Games’ hugely successful and influential Fortnite. In keeping with the surprise approach, the game isn’t just being announced today: it’s also launching. You can download it right now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

The launch strategy marks a drastic shift for a traditional, big-budget studio like Respawn, and it marks an even more radical one for EA, one of the world’s largest and most conservative game publishers. The goal is to get the game out as quickly as possible, so players can jump in and see for themselves how Respawn has remixed the battle royale genre before drawing inevitable comparisons to what it will be competing against.

    EA cant resist making “free-to-play” games. Lootcrates are their life at this point lol. Thanks for watching and liking this video!!

    • suppa sandwich

      This game is amazing guys, its worth checking out

    • Tyrone Drain

      DreamcastGuy I’m going to try it out tomorrow thanks for the review

    • Rohit Thaosen

      Should I be worried about the fact that this game is more positively received than Anthem?

    • The Division

      How to fix this terrible industry for 2019:

      1) Never buy anything from Activision, EA, Konami, Ubisoft, Bethesda, 2K game nor Warner Bros (if there is any other publisher you don’t like, add them to this list). Any game from them now will have ruined potential and will always be badly designed on purpose to sell microtransactions, lootboxes, and cheat codes. Create the stigma that anything with these publisher’s name on it is a lesser product because it’s true. If you absolutely NEED to have one of their games but still want to get it legally, wait about a year until the game is on sale with included DLC or (preferably) buy a used copy.

      2) Never pre-order any game. Waiting until the game comes out to give them money will force them to make sure it’s a functioning, bug-free (as possible), complete game.

      3) Wait until said publishers are downscaled/bankrupt from lack of sales. Even if they change their ways after suffering financial struggles, they’ll just go back to their current agenda once they’re back on top again. Let them burn in bankruptcy. They never cared about you. Don’t give them the satisfaction.

      4) Wait until they’re forced to sell IPs and franchises to better publishers in order to cut costs from going under. Developers let go from this should also be given employment opportunities from said publishers. This is, unfortunately, the only drawback to this plan as there’s no telling what will happen to said franchises and developers.

      5) Spread. This. Message. Feel free to copy/paste this comment anywhere it’s relevant! Anyone who says “this won’t work” is doing EXACTLY what these publishers want. The moment you give up and think uniting against exploitative and terrible business practices is fruitless is the moment you lose. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. This has worked before and it will work again.

    Wow that was fast. thanks for keeping us informed Dreamcast guy!

  3. Zhero Zhero

    Please let this battle royale / PvP / MMO trend die so I can enjoy my OFFLINE single player campaigns again 😭

    • MySplatterhouse

      @Zhero Zhero amen!!!

    • Almighty god

      Zhero Zhero Then stop fking whining and play Offline Single player games then… Acting like no Single Player games came out recently LMAO

    • Afro Shinobi

      +Zhero Zhero how are they becoming scarce? There are still a lot of sp games available and are still coming this year. People are whining just to whine.

    • Miles McClain

      You’re not very bright, are you?

    • Dev1n The Dud3

      Since when is there not single player games? Metro is literally about to drop this month.

  4. Ki11a TJ

    Im just happy they are not using the titanfall name

  5. AHairyHamburger

    this is fee to play done right! currency is earned at a decent rate and its a really fun game.

    • The Great Hadoken

      “Fee to play”.

      How very Freudian.

    • +The Great Hadoken you can play it for free, in what specific way is it Fruedian?

    • Stan Knight

      +treymtz The misspelling of free to fee ;).

    • +Stan Knight the joke doesn’t really hold up well though considering anyone with the platform can download and play it without spending a dime :/

  6. JEAN STARWIND

    It is a damn shame that Bio Ware and Respond are victimes of the battle royale games, that is currently a poisoning the industry in my personal opinion.

    • It’s because these projects become inspired by chasing fortnite money and have no personal vision. Sure they can add some of their own features to a battle royal game to differentiate it but in the end it was soley made to capitalize on a trend. 5 years a go if you showed them this game they’d laugh at the idea.

    • Fat Tiger

      +frozen0 Yep. Remember when WoW got huge and all the MMORPGs that sprang up? Most crashed and burned and a few staggered on with free to play. Same thing will happen with the battle royale games.

    • Portal 4ever

      Fat Tiger will? It’s been happening.

    • Back_in__nam

      frozen0 it’s not purely bandwagoning as it began development the year player unknown dropped

    • Dick Deepinsideher

      Always online battle royal bs needs to die. Game companys are sacrificing varit in gaming to chase the money. It sucks.

  7. Ghost Reflect

    Sucks that this game replaced Titanfall 3…

    • +Ghost Reflect negative show me where it says that. This game has been in development for 2 years as well as the star wars game. Development on TF3 is slow because I heard they were experimenting with a different engine.

    • LondonLock

      AlphaR they have more than one Dev team ones working on a Star Wars game the other on Titanfall 3 and the other on this side projects like this can oven time speed up development on Main projects

    • MikeandIke 111

      It’s not replacing Titianfall 3…its just something EA threw out their to keep people occupied while they develop Titianfall 3….ok

    • Kirk Lowe

      TF3 is not happening per the developer announcement today. Sorry guys it sucks

    • Dick Deepinsideher

      +AlphaR they said it’s not in development. This will be there new thing. Titanfall was killed for this cash grab

  8. iSevenEleven

    It’s incredibly aggravating when you sacrifice your reviewer integrity just to be the first one to get your name out there. There’s literally no possible way you could have played enough of this game to form a solid opinion on it.

    • Bill Cosby

      The game is good. There’s your review

    • MurrayNJ08

      Exactly, thank you for having a brain.

    • Sloth Demon

      I agree you don’t need to play a lot of battle Royale to get the gist of it. But they’re are a few things he says that I don’t agree with and I’ve been playing this game for around 5 hrs, I feel like he would’ve noticed certain things if he played more.

    • High Brow Comedy

      He probably had/requested early access like a lot of other youtubers and streamers

  9. Donta Roberts

    Overwatch meets titanfall meets battle royale

  10. oasisbeyond

    This is BAD, this is EA forcing them to do a battle Royal game, no way this takes off. They need to do something new and fresh to become the next big thing.

    • richard rodriguez

      Caviey no titan fall 3 is in development but this was more of a thank you to their fans

    • Pretty sure EA didnt have a lot of a part in the making of the game. Plus you can pretty much earn everything in the game without just buying everything.

    • High Brow Comedy

      Caviey They never said they weren’t working on TF3, they said they restarted TF3 on a new engine and made this game out of the original TF3’s assets

    • Back_in__nam

      They started making it when BR was fresh and new back in 2017, before fortnite even got to 1/4 of there too playerbase

  11. SageModeLuis

    Is it 60fps on the consoles?

    • hunter buner

      Yes when u drop down into the map it switches form I think 20 to 60

    • Urboyyycarlos

      Its targets 60fps but could dip to 40s or 50fps while above the map,but i play on pro so i didn’t have any problem,except for other players lagging,not framerate issues. Although there are minor crashes,like freezing or blue screens but not as bad as how BO4 was when it released.

    • hunter buner

      +Urboyyycarlos yes I play on base with fov at 100 and it can dip to as low as 30 but hopefully when they patch it it should be good

    • Urboyyycarlos

      +hunter buner you can try lowering the resolution to 720,it might help,i have a pro but i prefer performance,so i use 1080 or 720p instead of 4k/upscale to improve the gameplay.

  12. Hylian Ticipated

    So I guess we’re just gonna let your phony Piranha Plant debacle go, huh?

  13. Explicit Tech

    EA probably gives developers crippling depression.

  14. Fat Tiger

    Did the industry really need a battle royale game? This fad has already reached its apex and all these wannabe Fortnites are going to die quickly. And EA once again set up Respawn to fail, launching their game right near Kingdom Hearts 3 and Resident Evil 2 Remake (two of the most anticipated games in years) I feel sorry for that studio; they’re bound to get shut down like all the devs EA buys.

  15. No more loot boxes and EA can fk off.

  16. baumans100

    this game is nice and feels like it has much moire going for it then blackout or pubg. who cares thats its not titanfall 3 get over it and enjoy the tight shooting and fun gameplay. we have like 3 battle royales stop saying its over saturated people because its not.

    • Noah Rossmann

      +Jamaine Bowman gta v doesn’t have battle royale

    • Noah Rossmann and red dead

    • blueburry_lemon

      I know right, this game clearly was meant as a fun game project, not a triple A game with a crazy plot and detailing, people need to just enjoy a fun game, its not like they have to even play it, and its free to play

    • Urboyyycarlos

      +Jamaine Bowman you got warface,it has br,also for ps4 at least, its fortnite,blackout,h1z1,apex legends,warface,realm royale,pubg,battlefield 5 releases its br mode om march,and rec room vr/screen has a br mode as well. But yeah PC has more,some that people don’t even know about

  17. Hijynx87

    I’m guessing this is to make up for the losses of titanfall 2?

  18. DrAkuIa1

    I have never played a battle royale game and I don’t feel like I’m missing anything

  19. Buck Cake

    Oh boy…Just what we need…Another cash in royale game

    • Back_in__nam

      Buck Cake it’s been in development since the same year player unknown dropped it’s not a cash grab it just took them two years to make
