With the official reveal set for today, it won't be long before we hear more about the game.
Respawn Entertainment dispelled rumors and theories surround the future of its Titanfall franchise by confirming Titanfall 3 isn't in development and Apex Legends is the studio's focus. But Apex Legends is a squad-based battle royale - a format that's left a lot of us feeling worn out - and the studio says it's not working on Titanfall 3. It is a squad-based battle royale game, where you can play as one of eight Legends each with its own characteristics.
It now seems Titanfall 3 won't happen anytime soon, if at all, with Respawn now dedicating their time between Apex Legends and the still unseen Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
One thing that did not turn out to be true was that Apex Legends would be getting a reveal trailer to be shown during the Super Bowl. The first is the Jumpmaster system, which allows squads to choose where there are dropped on the map. Legends include Bloodhound, a tracker who can see recent enemy activity on the map; Lifeline, a battlefield medic who can shield teammates and bring them back from the brink of death.
The same map was "leaked" previous year on Reddit, for what it's worth, so we'll see if this historic leak ends up being accurate or not when the livestream actually gets underway at 7pm. The game's focus appears to be on teamwork and balancing the squad. "The Battle Pass is a seasonal system that rewards players with exclusive cosmetic items", reads the Apex Legends FAQ. Additional seasons will be released in the future, with different themes and new content as well as Legends, skins, and weapons.
