Game Spotlight: Apex Legends

Apex Legends is a newly released free to play, battle royale game developed by Respawn Entertainment who have previously developed games in the Titanfall series. It is currently playable on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation4. For the PC version, players are able to find the game in Origin’s game store.

The objective of each game is to be the last team standing out of 20 teams of three. The core gameplay is similar to other battle royale games: teams drop onto the map and collect guns, armor, and other gear and fight with other teams until there is one team left alive who is then crowned champion. Each player in each team is able to choose one “Legend” to play as for the game. There are a total of six Legends to pick from: Bangalore – Professional Soldier, Bloodhound – Technological Tracker, Caustic – Toxic Trapper, Gibraltar – Shielded Fortress, Lifeline – Combat Medic, Mirage – Holographic Trickster, Pathfinder – Forward Scout, and Wraith – Interdimensional Skirmisher. Each Legend has their own special abilities which alter the gameplay depending on which Legend you play as.

Overall, the game has an interesting take on the battle royale genre with its unique characters and their class abilities. If this sounds interesting, why not give it a shot?
