Following rumours regarding its existence, Respawn has confirmed that it is launching a free-to-play battle royale game called Apex Legends. Spread online by numerous video streamers and influencers because clearly video game bloggers and journalists are incapable of keeping a secret, and corroborated on by Kotaku's always-reliable Jason Schrier, Apex Legends will see players ditch their Titans in favour of some of that sweet sweet chicken dinner.

With the official announcement still slated for tomorrow, alongside confirmation of what, if any, of the above is true - Respawn head Vince Zampella did confirm the title ahead of the reveal. If you're starting to get a little worn out over Fortnite or PUBG, this may be the alternative battle royale game for you. Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale shooter (yes, like Fortnite), and best of all, you can download it right now. "It's their abilities that set them apart, so you'll want to pick the Legend that matches your preferred playstyle and complements your squad". The first is the Jumpmaster system, which allows squads to choose where there are dropped on the map. Interestingly, Apex Legends will not include any of the iconic Titan mech suits. All together it creates a battle royale experience unlike any other, complete with Respawn's commitment to top-notch quality and fun. But amid the excitement, EA and Respawn has also quietly spelled out the game's year one roadmap in it's deep dive trailer: see the roadmap below.
