Titanfall battle royale game Apex Legends ‘to be released on Monday’

Titanfall battle royale game Apex Legends ‘to be released on Monday’

"So, if you like Respawn, our games or even me, you should tune in tomorrow [Monday, February 4]", a tweet from Zampella reads.

Apex Legends is claimed to be a free-to-play battle royale game set in the Titanfall universe but, surprisingly, without Titans.

You can see the reveal for yourself on the brand new Play Apex Twitch channel, which we've embedded below. Still a ways away apparently, but maybe there might be some other action on the way in the form of the industry's latest trend: The battle royale. The game is free-to-play and despite being set in the Titanfall universe, it won't feature any of the giant robots or titans as they're known from the Titanfall games. Interestingly, it won't feature Titan mechs, but it'll feature an array of playable characters with unique abilities, ala Overwatch and Rainbow Six Siege. Another tipster remarked that the game is a mixture of Titanfall, Overwatch, and Blackout from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Another peculiar hint is that the URL "playapex.com" directly takes visitors to the Electronic Arts homepage, furthering indicating that the game will be titled "Apex Legends" as rumored. It's quite possible that this is just a spin-off that Respawn plans to release while it continues working on Titanfall 3.

This is the second Respawn game expected this year, the first being Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order.

According to a Kotaku report published on February 2, the game is based on the Titanfall intellectual property and will launch alongside its reveal on February 4 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

We'll update our readers when we have more information.
