Earlier this month EA Games studio Respawn Entertainment released its free battle royale game Apex Legends. It is marketed as a game that is carrying the battle royale genre forward. However, the game is not as innovative as it claims to be.
Apex Legends is perhaps best described as a combination of Titanfall and Overwatch. In the game players select from a limited roster of legendary characters with powerful abilities to battle against 57 other players.
The game currently only supports trio mode matchmaking where 60 players are split into 20 different three-person squads. Duo and solo modes are not yet available, but are expected to be added to the game at a later date.
