It's a new free-to-play battle royale game.

Apex Legends is a free-to-play sci-fi first-person survival-shooter developed by Respawn and published digitally by Electronic Arts for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC (via Origin) on February 4, 2019.

A spin-off of the Titanfall series, Apex Legends brings a modern "battle royale" twist (similar to PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS, the Battle Royale mode in Fortnite, and the Blackout mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4) to the fast-paced futuristic universe. As such, some of the series' traditional gameplay elements (including the Titan mechs and wall-running) have been scrapped.

Each match features 20 three-player squads, with each squadmate as their own unique "Legend" (similar to Heroes in MOBAs). Each Legend has their own unique special abilities.


I normally would not post a free-to-play game, but it has the same birthday as the Free Games board... so it seems fitting! anyone want to try this out?

(Also on Xbox One, PS4)

I played a match last night. Seems fun, but I need to try it some more. First impression of it seems to be a Blackout/Overwatch hybrid.

TBH I would have rather have had TF3. The first two games were very enjoyable. But with the release of Apex it seems TF3 is not going to happen.
