The really puzzling thing here is Respawn launching this when Anthem is only a week or two away. I guess they are a wholly owned subsidiary or perhaps EA just deemed it different markets but I can't help feel like there's some overlap.
Not really competition in my eyes. Ones a PVE grinder and really expensive, ones PVP only and f2p.
Anthem vs Division 2 releasing right next to each other is a little more perplexing.
Though in this case they probably wanted to get Apex out before Battlefield BR stole the headlines.
It will be interesting to see if this game has any staying power in the BR genre, or whether everyone will head back to their favorite BR game within a month or two.
I still dont see the appeal, no mechs, forced teams of 3, and it just looks like blackout all over again. I'll give it a try at some point though...
