In a departure to its competitors, Apex Legends pits twenty squads of three against each other, bringing the total player pool to just sixty. According to Slasher, the game will be a free-to-play hero battle royale for PC and console. The game is set in the Titanfall universe, which Respawn is also the creator of, but unfortunately, it looks like you aren't able to call down Titans as you play. Each of the eight characters (or Legends) has their own abilities, including tracking enemies, deploying decoys and using toxic gas.

'Thank you so much for showing up and being part of this with @Respawn you are amazing!'

- Lead producer Drew McCoy discusses the development of Apex Legends.

The studio behind Titanfall 2 and the upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is enjoying the fruits of its labours right now, but has also stressed that this is just the beginning for Apex Legends, with a year long roadmap already on the table. Once players are ready to begin, they'll choose their drop point with the Jumpmaster system, giving each squad full control over exactly where they drop in. Is it smarter to head straight for the most valuable loot and risk early conflict with other teams, or make for one of the outlying areas to plot an attack and let other squads pick each other off?

The game will feature a seasonal content roadmap, with new Legends and weaponry coming on a quarterly basis.

Slasher provided more information in a string of tweets, like hinting at what microtransactions there might be. On the subject of wall-running, Zampella said it "wasn't as fun and balanced".
