Battle Royale games are extremely popular right now because they bring a sense of competition and strategy each time you play. And even if you lose, there’s always a reason to come back and try again. Games like Fortnite and the newly launched Apex Legends offer a massive world map whose livable space decreases bit by bit so only a single person is able to win.
Apex Legends vs. Fortnite
What makes Apex Legends different, is that unlike Fortnite, it only allows you to play in a team of 3. Being able to play with other people and connecting with them as you strategize to win can be really exciting. And Apex Legends makes this even better because there’s no need for voice chat. It’s created its own ping system that makes communication great even if you lack a microphone.
Like Fortnite, there are also cosmetics that you can acquire via the use of Xbox gift cards and PSN gift cards, depending on what platform you’re using. But Apex Legends has designed the game so that you can customize each one of the 8 legends to your liking. Plus, you’ll also have different abilities for every legend which creates a different experience each time you play.
Apex Legends is completely free to download
The fact that Apex Legends is free to play matters a lot because everyone can download it and have a chance to experience the fun. Soon, players will have the opportunity to pour money into skins and the upcoming battle pass that’ll be arriving in the near future. The overall gameplay is fluid, and while you don’t have any titans or wall movement, Apex Legends provides you with plenty of variability as you move and constantly explore new locations. Even if you’re not good at shooters, you can still learn quite a bit and continually test your skills. The game also doesn’t have a ranking system yet, which means there’s no need to worry about how well you fare.
It’s easy to see why the game managed to accrue more than 25 million players in the first week, and the numbers continue to rise. There’s definitely already a lot of content the game has to offer, and there’s even more coming in the near future. Apex Legends is definitely an experience you don’t want to miss out on, especially if you like Battle Royale games or Respawn’s amazing Titanfall series!
