Titanfall battle royale game 'Apex Legends' takes aim on 'Fortnite'

Titanfall battle royale rumored to launch soon, minus the Titans

"Apex Legends", Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment's new free-to-play battle royale shooter, is available to play now.

eSports consultant Rod Breslau stated on Twitter that the game will feature, "classes/heroes with unique abilities, maximum of 60 players per server, maximum of 3 players per team (trios) to complement each other".

There are no pilotable mechs in the game.

So there you have it: the world gained a new free-to-play battle royale game today. Apex Legends is set in the Titanfall universe.

Like the first two Titanfall games, Apex Legends runs on a modified Source engine.

Like Fortnite, you and your squad will have to wander the battlefield looking for loot while taking care not to attract the attention of the game's other players.

Even though Titanfall 3 doesn't now seem to be on the docket, EA and Respawn Entertainment have made it clear that Apex Legends is a game they intend for players to consistently return to over time and create new stories.

"I inherited a total mess in Syria and Afghanistan , the "Endless Wars" of unlimited spending and death". We will soon have destroyed 100% of the Caliphate, but will be watching them closely.

Apex Legends does not feature titans.

You can take a look at Zampella's teasing tweet below.

"To try and convince a sceptical audience for months with trailers and hands-on articles, we're just like, 'let the game speak for itself" - it's the most powerful antidote to potential problems.

"Our goal in every game you play is that you come in with a plan but you leave with a story", Drew McCoy, lead producer of Apex Legends, said in a press release.

The same map was "leaked" previous year on Reddit, for what it's worth, so we'll see if this historic leak ends up being accurate or not when the livestream actually gets underway at 7pm.

While we'll have to wait until Monday (if the rumors are accurate) to discover if a Titanfall 3 is still in the works, it seems quite likely it is.
