Fight with style, compete for fame and fortune, and master an ever-growing squad of different legends with multi-layered, tactical squad gameplay. Bold innovations take the Battle Royale experience to the next level - in a harsh world where anything is possible. Welcome to the next evolutionary stage in Apex Legends, a free-to-play Battle Royale shooter. The game offers many innovations within the genre. Players select their drop point via the Jumpmaster system before the game begins, giving each squad full control of their target. You choose, whether to take care of the most valuable loot immediately, risking early conflicts with other teams, or to wait for other squads to eliminate each other.
The game is set in the Titanfall universe and players can choose one of eight heroes, each offering unique abilities and a unique way to play. Like Bloodhound, the tracker who can see the enemy's latest activities on the map, or Lifeline, a combat medic who can shield teammates and bring them back from the brink of death. Balanced squads and teamwork are crucial, as each legend is easy to learn but difficult to master. The last team left standing at the end is the winner.
Other features include Respawn Transmitters, one-time use locations where defeated teammates can be resurrected. Players can report enemies, weapons, and positions with a contextual ping communication system with the touch of a button, while an intelligent inventory system automatically links attachments and equipment to a weapon once picked up.
