This fantastic battle royale game launched in early 2019 with absolutely no fanfare; the game just popped up on digital stores as a free experience, waiting for players to hop in. Although expectations were tempered, the game was made by the developers of Titanfall 2, so players were hoping for equally fast and addictive gunplay. What we got was even better. By including an amazing ping system and keeping the adrenaline pumping, Apex Legends quickly became one of the best online multiplayer shooters of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One generation.
Similar to games like Overwatch, players choose from a roster of unique characters known as Legends, each with unique skills and abilities. In comparison to other battle royale games, Apex Legends is incredibly fast-paced, rewarding speed and precision over powerful weapons. While you are forced to play with a squad of three other players, the excellent ping system makes it easy to communicate with players without using a headset. Not only is Apex Legends free, but it introduced a plethora of features that have been adopted by other major online shooting games since its release.
