After previous speculation and reports (although pretty accurate), a brand new battle royale game based on Titanfall has been confirmed. With PUBG, Fortnite, and Call of Duty’s Blackout taking the world by storm over the last several years, it seems a new contender has entered the arena.
Produced by EA and developed by Respawn Entertainment, the game titled “Apex Legends” will be free-to-play and earn its revenue from micro-transactions. Micro-transactions have been the lifeblood of Epic’s Fortnite, allowing it to the spotlight in the gaming world in a short period of time.
According to reports, the game will feature teams of three battling in a map of 60 players for a total of 20 teams. Gameplay was related to that of a mix between Call of Duty’s Blackout and Rainbow 6 Siege. Blackout has met high acclaim as a battle royale since it’s release while Siege has made a name for itself in the esports space for the last year.
Respawn Entertainment confirmed its existence Sunday night via CEO Vince Zampella.
