Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale video game developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts. Set in the same universe as the Titanfall duology, the game was revealed and released in a surprise announcement on the same day on 4 February 2019 for Microsoft Windows, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Apex Legends is a battle royale game borrowing concepts of the hero shooter, taking place 30 years after the events of Titanfall 2. Three-player squads play against other squads in matches of up to 60 players. Teams scour the game map for weapons, ammo, and other equipment, while fighting to be last team standing. Unique to Apex, players that are downed by opponents can be respawned back into the game if their squadmates take certain actions within a short period of time after the player is killed. Apex features both voice-chat communication with squadmates and a robust communication approach that allows a player to ping map features like weapons, opponents, or rally points if they don't have voice chat.
