Respawn Entertainment took a hell of a gamble with Apex Legends, releasing a fully playable battle royale experience without any warning prior to some leaks from influencers that had made the trek over to try the game out ahead of time.

Apex Legends didn't lack for word-of-mouth buzz on its opening day, with EA Games' entry into the battle royale fray scoring a huge early success as gamers logged on by the literal millions. While the game doesn't have that feature at this time, it looks like it very well could.

A lot of this might be due to the fact that it's free-to-play and is available on all platforms, but the point still stands. It just keeps getting even more impressive as the days go by.

All Battle Royale games require a bit of finesse but Fortnite requires that little extra as you try to build walls or structures in general to try protect yourself from the storm of bullets heading your way.

As with downloading the game, things aren't as simple if you're on PC. When you watch great players like Ninja playing the game, it's pretty special and exciting to watch, one of the more exciting games I have ever had the fortunate viewing. "But we fell in love with Apex Legends and wanted, needed, other people to play it too", Zampella said in a blog post.

"If you're having trouble seeing your friends online or sending invites on Origin, we're looking into it, and we'll let you know when we have more info", the EA Support message reads. You can find the brackets for the event on their Smash.gg page, broken up by region.

As you can see above, Apex also has a slackline system.

McCoy says they tried to figure out a more balanced version of mechs in Apex Legends, but "when we tried Titans that weren't as powerful, or had "gotchas" to them, it really ruined that power fantasy of what a Titan is and should be". Just like Fortnite Heroes, Apex Legends also has "Legends" who have their own set of skills and abilities. This is all common stuff that is shared between popular online games. It's a whole 100K viewers ahead of Fortnite and 130K ahead of PUBG.
