Respawn Entertainment have officially unveiled Apex Legends, their Battle Royale title set within the Titanfall universe.
The game features squad-based gunplay, with players forming a team of three from the selection of eight Legends. According to Respawn, Legends are “easy to pick up and learn, but challenging to master.”
Certain Battle Royale tropes have been given a new twist in Apex Legends, with players actually able to bring back fallen team members by utilising one-time use Respawn Beacons.
Players can also tag equipment and enemies for their squad, and weapon attachments and gear automatically gets assigned to the appropriate piece of equipment when picked up thanks to the game’s “intelligent inventory system”.
“Our goal in every game you play is that you come in with a plan but you leave with a story,” said Drew McCoy, Lead Producer for Apex Legends.
“We’re building a game that is not only going to deliver a fun and memorable experience at launch, but something we can keep growing for a long time to come.”
During this evening’s live stream Respawn confirmed that Apex Legends does include microtransactions, but they will be limited to cosmetic items only.
The game will also feature a Battle Pass which players can purchase for “exclusive cosmetic items earned through gameplay.”

There’s the “smart and organised” True Sons, a ruthless paramilitary force led by a former JTF officer, the Hyenas, a gang of raiders who prey on civilian encampments and enforce a scorched-earth policy for whatever they can’t scavenge, and finally the Outcasts, former quarantine survivors out for revenge against the society that abandoned them.
The follow up to 2016’s The Division, the sequel is once again being developed by Massive Entertainment along with several other studios and is said to feature a “substantial campaign that organically flows into a robust endgame.”

Publisher Blowfish Studios and developer Drakkar Dev’s “mech action” game, War Tech Fighters, is making its way to consoles later this year.
The campaign features 33 single-player missions and can be played from either a first or third-person perspective, while there’s also a survival mode which allows players to face off against endless waves of enemies.
Mechs come in light, balanced or heavy varieties and can be customised with more than 180 upgradable parts and systems, allowing players to build a mech that suits their playstyle. Thousands of liveries and paint options add further personalisation to your hulking machine.
“A War Tech’s agility and destructive capabilities shine in space as they launch brutal assaults from long-range and narrow the gap for up close and personal sword battles and stylish execution moves,” reads the press release. “But fighting isn’t everything when it comes to War Techs.”
“Performing high-risk stealth missions, navigating through radiation fields, intercepting coded messages and solving environmental puzzles are all in a day’s work for pilots.”
To celebrate the game’s arrival on consoles, those who buy the game on Xbox One, PS4 or Switch will be granted access to Archangel War Tech special set.
Available from the start of the game, it features the powerful Glory Sword, Redemption Halberd, and Faith Shield and can “turn the tides” of tough battles in your favour.
No release date has been announced just yet, with War Tech Fighters scheduled to arrive sometime in Q2 (April-June) this year on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
