Apex Legends Launched

The promised Twitch reveal for Apex Legends seems to be a nothingburger so far, but the Apex Legends Website is live, saying the new battle royale game based on the Titanfall series is now available for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The Windows edition is available on Origin, where they have a link to a trailer which YouTube currently lists as unavailable, so this unveiling is not going perfectly smoothly. Here's word on this free-to-play battle royale shooter:
Conquer with character in Apex Legends, a free-to-play* Battle Royale shooter where legendary characters with powerful abilities team up to battle for fame & fortune on the fringes of the Frontier. Master an ever-growing roster of diverse Legends, deep tactical squad play and bold new innovations that level up the Battle Royale experience—all within a rugged world where anything goes. Welcome to the next evolution of Battle Royale.

A Roster of Legendary Characters
-Master a growing roster of powerful Legends, each with their own unique personality, strengths and abilities that are easy to pick up but challenging to truly master.

Build Your Crew
-Choose your Legend and combine their unique skills together with other players to form the ultimate crew.

Strategic Battle Royale

Sweet, Sweet Loot
-Drop in and loot up with a host of powerful weapons, diverse attachments and useful armor to protect you in battle. After the fight, collect a wealth of cosmetic options for personalizing your character and weapons, and unlock new ways to show off during the match.

So... Titanfall without mechs, and gameplay that looks quite indistinguishable from Blackout.


What? I thought it might be cool when they said Titanfall. Ooooh, BR with mechs! Nope, hopes dashed. Interest gone.

Exactly my thought process as well. Started watching some streams keen to see some mech on mech action... and nothing? Just people running around on speed sliding around non stop and insta killing each other ala Call of Consoles: Blackout.

Wasted opportunity. Come on guys, do something different! Fortnite has building, what about the rest of you? Bring something new and interesting to the genre to pull people away from the game they are already comfortable and happy with.
