Apex Legends is free to download Battle Royale video game. It was first released on the 4th of this month, without any prior announcement or marketing before. With that being said, APEX Legends was released on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Unlike its rival  “Fortnite” this game contains a max of 3 players in the lobby, meaning that you are only allowed to play with only 2 other friends, to chose wisely. In addition to that, it is now the most viewed game on TWITCH (streaming).

Comparing APEX Legends and other games are a must, Fortnite and Apex have similarities where it is an arcade shooter like a game wherein you fight others to win and you sometimes benefit in smart team combat. Some gamers also say that the game PUB G and Apex also have similarities, including that they both have a realistic approach.

With a new game comes new things…. APEX LEGENDS has provided a new feel of fun and excitement for new gamers. At the beginning of the game, other players have to rely on each other between picking a new spot to land and for loot. With that being said Teamwork in this game is a must (unless you are a pro).

While playing this game you will obviously come into contact with other players and you will have to fight to the end. With that being said, unlike some other battle royale games after you or your team fall, you can revive one another. By saying that there are 2 phases of “death”. First, you will appear in a crate like a box that will have your character picture showing along with a Ping on the map of your teammates. Your teammates will have about 90 seconds or less to come and revive you. When your teammate is too late to revive you, you will go into phase 2. You will then be picked up into a car like a device that your teammates will have to place you at a player revive the area. When that is done the player that was down, will revive back in the map jumping out of the plane without their stuff from their previous life.

With that being said there are 8 Legends that you can pick from. Each of the characters has special abilities, unlike some other battle royale games. The characters fall into three categories including, offensive, defensive, and support characters. With the kinds of Legends that you chose it could either help your team or the will not help at all.
