At any rate, the success of EA's launch could simply go to show the huge popularity of battle royale games these days, and perhaps also reflects positively on the Titanfall universe - in which Apex Legends is set - to some extent.

Over the past two years, battle royale games seem to be at an endless supply. Instead, Respawn has made some tweaks to the tried-and-true battle royale formula for Apex Legends, like introducing a class system that's built around squad play. In other words, you're not just an anonymous grunt like in PUBG or Fortnite, but matches still take place on the same map where 60 players on teams of three fight to be the last ones standing. You can check out the cinematic debut trailer for Apex Legends, below.

Taking a page from games like Fortnite and Overwatch, Apex Legends sports both a colorful, stylized look, and lets players take control of one of eight unique "Legends", which you can no-doubt further customized with various skins and cosmetics. Respawn and EA say that the first season for Apex Legends will kick off in March, but at the moment, there aren't any additional details. The game is out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
