Apex Legends - A Titanfall Battle Royale

Pages

I am personally looking forward to this today and I love surprise announcement along with an immediate release.

There are no actual Titans in it from what I hear but the Titanfall mobility has always been the best part about the game. Let's see what it looks like today!

The first showing is at 8PST.

I've always wanted to give first-person battle royale a go, but never got around to trying it anywhere. This seems like a good place to start.

The stream is live now

Edit: Seems we all got baited. They are showing anything till 3 EST it seems. SO the stream is going to sit on this environment for 4 more hours.

It's glitched in some stuff a couple times... I'll come back later, I guess.

They are slow dripping some quick videos. I'll update as it goes up:

Clip 1 the hatchet throw

Clip 2 THe Snipe

Clip 3 the Knife kill

Clip 4 The raven

Clip 5 The gun show

The pre-titan call in parkour gameplay of the original Titanfall was a lot of fun, especially in tight urban spaces. Would be nice to see a highly mobile BR with some verticality that doesn’t revolve around sniping at the limit of visual range for once. Here’s hoping.

Not a big fan of the drip feed but then again, this came out of nowhere.

Here's hoping it's as fun as Titanfall, though I will miss the Titans. The universe is cool enough that I am interested in this one!

old-school plus-one.

It looks to me like it's still the modified Source Engine and not Frostbyte.

Are you sure? It a 404!

(This is whole reveal is going quite well I think. Yessiree.)

The page has been jumping between the 404, an Origin frontpage, and their Twitch stream all morning. Game is supposed to be revealed on Twitch right about now, and presumably released at the same time. Servers are likely inundated, though.

ETA: It's available through the Origin storefront. I'm downloading it on my home rig as I type this edit!

Still a market niche for some other dev to make a BR game with giant robots.

Cool trailer. I'll give it go when I get home.

There are a lot of awesome looking hooks in this game. I love the idea of a legends banner and I love that if a teammate dies you can try to bring them back to life with a very hight risk-reward scenario.

Holy...

I'm going to have to play this. Sigh. No choice.

Downloading now Trailer looks great!

I may leave work early.....

Downloading now!

Yeah, I too am gonna have to play this. That Pathfinder robot speaks to me.

This game looks so smooth. Wow. Movement is fluid and gunplay looks so solid. THere is also a UI ping to tell your squad where to look, defend, shoot etc.

This is WAY MORE polished than I thought it would be.

Other BRs did this already and this is the second 'class' based BR out there, but i'm digging the movement and the class options shown here.

Count me in.

Will be playing online tonight after 9 pm PT.

You can't double up on characters. That makes me sad. The order of picking is randomized, that's ok.

Seems to be squad only right now.

Wait, you can't choose a primary character, it's all randomized?

There's an exclusive pick order, the order is randomized.

Its like the old TF2 rulesets with limited number of players/class, but with it controlling who can pick first and in what order.
