Apex Legends - battle royale in the Titanfall universe


#283

That’s because it’s a bad idea to mix work and play.

I am really happy for Respawn, but I think I am BR-gamed out at this point. PUBG was such a fun few months of playing with friends. But I kind of got my fill then.

Make Titanfall 3 now.


#286

Enjoy the name Titanfall while you can, because all future Titanfall entries will be called Apex*.

Titanfall 3? More like Apex: M3chpilots


#287

Apex: Titanfall


#288

Ape Leg Tit Bat

Apex Legends: Titanfall works for me.

My guess is you’ll be working with Kuben Blisk in any future Titanfall follow up so it’ll be Apex Predators time regardless.

They need to get rid of the fortnite art style.

Regarding its competition with anthem, i still don’t buy it. But hey, i guess we’ll see.


#291

Fortnite art style? Surely you’re engaging in some hyperbole, right? Apex is much closer to Titanfall than Fortnite. It’s less “realistic” than CoD or BF, but it’s not a cartoon either.


#292

Gat dam.

25 million players. 2 million concurrent.


#293

I dunno what you’d call it, but Apex characters definitely don’t look, sound, or feel like Titanfall characters to me.

(Other than the robot)

They aren’t quite cartoons, but they are “cartoony”.


#294

They look like CoD Blackout characters to me. Doesn’t seem “Titanfall” to me, but not quite as cartoons as Fortnite, either. Kind of Borderlands-y.


#295

Bloodhound’s aesthetic seems to hew fairly close to the Titanfall art style and even looks like an eccentric pilot. Respawn have noted that his/her design originated from some of the early design documents and preliminary art samples in the creative process that lead to the original Titanfall.

Then you have the EdgeLord Wraith that does things like vaguely hit and shake her head cuz her mental demonz are too much to take! A character from BossKey’s Lawbreakers did the exact same thing on the character selection screen.

Another positive knock on effect from Apex Legends.

As spotted on the Titanfall Reddit and the Resetera forums, worldwide players numbers for Titanfall 2 have multiplied across all platforms since the release of Apex Legends and the number of online players on Xbox even surpassed 10k players this weekend. Prior to the release of Apex Legends, Titanfall 2 would have around 2k to 3k Xbox players on casual Saturdays.

The number of online PC players also increased considerably with a peak of roughly 3500 players this weekend. Usually, there would be an average of 800 to 1500 PC players worldwide.

The characters are boring af and completely unoriginal. You have all the tropes covered. Happy Death Robot, Weird Guy, Goth Chick, Generic Soldier, The Rock from Moana, Girl Lucio, Necromancer, and Johnny Cage.

I still love the game but if they’re gonna crib Overwatch they should have hired a character artist.


#298

tbh the cosmetic stuff is uaf


#299

I like the character designs… they’re not the outragously Disney/Anime of Overwatch… but then again its all opinion anyway. The best is still Jagged Alliance 2!


#300

Currently this game is heavily eating into Fortnite’s Twitch presence. Anecdotally, last night Apex was doing 3-4 times the viewers than Fortnite.

Free 2 Play is the answer I guess.


#301

But Fortnite is also Free2Play. I just figured they were still paying notable streamers for their time.


#302

Apex doesn’t have building objects which I imagine annoys a lot of people, myself included.
