  • Titanfall battle royale rumored to launch soon, minus the Titans

Reports have also begun to pop up on other sites that Apex Legends has completely replaced a third Titanfall game - according to Kotaku, Titanfall 3 isn't now in development and Apex Legends is what we're getting instead.

Design Director Mackey McCandlish said to VG247 that "This is the game being made by the Titanfall team, Apex Legends..."

Apex Legends is available to download on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 right now.

Rumoued to be built off the same Source-powered engine that was seen in Titanfall, the new game will pit up to 60 players in teams of three in a battle royale, err, battle.

European countries set up payment channel with Iran to bypass U.S. sanctions
It will apparently be based in Paris, have a German banking expert at the helm, and a Brit chairing its supervisory board. France and Germany had taken joint responsibility for the SPV.


After previous speculation and reports (although pretty accurate), a brand new battle royale game based on Titanfall has been confirmed.

It also doesn't have a single-player mode, unlike the excellent Titanfall 2, and is a free-to-play game clearly aiming at Fortnite's throne. You may even start on the outskirts of the map and slowly work your way in, hoping that other squads pick each other out. 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 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.

Be sure to read the entire piece over at Eurogamer, which provides some more detail about the development of Apex Legends. The game's focus appears to be on teamwork and balancing the squad.

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