In battle royale games, up to 100 players are paradropped on the map and the last person or team standing wins. Respawn isn't blind to that response, and that's why the Apex Legends release date came so suddenly.

"There are some people who think there are too many battle royale games or it's a fad, the world thinks we're making Titanfall 3 and we're not - this is what we're making..."

The real kicker? That EA plans to launch Apex Legends soon. Rumored throughout the past week and officially revealed Monday, Apex Legends is free-to-play and available now on PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Apex Legends showcases several new genre-leading innovations, starting before players even start the match. The game is set in the Titanfall universe, which Respawn is also the creator of, but unfortunately, it looks like you aren't able to call down Titans as you play. The game's focus appears to be on teamwork and balancing the squad.
