The game, a spin on Titanfall 2‘s multiplayer and set in its universe, albeit in the now popular battle royale genre and WITHOUT MECHS, brings in a few hero flavors from Overwatch to give it a slightly different feel than PUBG and Fortnite.
It seems to be working.
Apex Legends is available for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
