The best Apex Legends match I’ve had in ages ended in fisticuffs

This week, I had my first Apex Legends boxing match. If you're a fan of the battle royale, you may have seen clips of this phenomenon on social media. It's when squads of total strangers manage to make peace, drop all their guns and armour, and settle their final standoff by throwing hands (and occasionally feet). This will never happen to me, I thought, I'm…

Apex Legends raises wallrunning from the dead for this year’s Fight Or Fright

They're doing it! By god, they're doing it! Apex Legends is gearing up for its big Halloween monster mash - and this time, the demons are crawling all over the goddamn walls. This year's Fight or Fright event is bringing wallrunning back from Titanfall 2, but only for those Legends unfortunate enough to succumb to undeath.

Apex Legends came out two hours late so a developer could finalise his daughter’s adoption

It turns out when Apex Legends came out last year, Respawn released it a couple of hours later than planned. This wasn't down to server issues or last-minute bugs, though. The battle royale's launch was pushed back by two hours because the studio's former lead programmer had a court appointment to finalise his daughter's adoption on the very same morning.

Apex Legends has scrapped Wraith’s Naruto run

Wraith's days of flinging her arms back, leaning her head down, and sprinting like Naruto are over. Apex Legends' Aftermarket event update went live this morning, adding cross-platform multiplayer and a new limited-time game mode. But, more importantly, it also kicked the most popular Legend out of the anime club, giving her a new sprint animation that doesn't hide away her already-tiny hitbox.

Crossplay hits Apex Legends with next week’s Aftermarket event

Months after Respawn let slip that cross-platform multiplayer would be dropping into Apex Legends, we finally know when we'll be able to team up with our console comrades. Beta testing for the feature kicks off alongside the Aftermarket Collection Event next Tuesday, letting you try out the bizarre new Flashpoint LTM with your Xbox and PlayStation pals - assuming they choose to let us PC…

Apex Legends suspended its latest event due to a game-breaking bug

Last night, Respawn pulled out a little surprise for Apex Legends fans, dropping a new version of the Grand Soirée event we first saw back in January. It kicked off with the old favourite limited-time game mode, Dummie's Big Day, which has players become a training Dummie, rather than a Legend, with all sorts of weird abilities to try. Unfortunately, just a few hours after…

Feature: When is crossplay coming, and how will it work?

Apex Legends crossplay date and supported platforms

We've known that crossplay is coming to Apex Legends for quite some time, but as its release draws ever-nearer, we thought it would be good to go over everything we know about how crossplay will work. Which platforms are supported? What will this mean for Apex console players? Can you opt-out? Is cross-progress and cross-purchasing supported? You'll find the answers to all these and other…

Apex Legends has started the new season with a new character, Rampart

Apex Legends' sixth season started today, bringing with it big map changes and a brand new character who has a gun so big and special she gave it a name. Rampart (the Legend) and Sheila (the gun) arrived on the scene this morning, ready to drop into the new version of the World's Edge map. Rather heartbreakingly, Respawn have done away with its excellent train.…

Apex Legends is mothballing the World’s Edge train next season

It's a dark day when not even Apex Legends can invest in public transport. Next week's new season of high-speed murdersports is bringing an infrastructure overhaul to World's Edge. But while concrete monstrosities and whopping great rocketships have been plonked all over the Icelandic arena, the criminals at Respawn have shut down the region's fantastic train network. Guess I'll walk to my next high-stakes gunfight,…

Apex Legends digs in for a new season with new legend Rampart

Playing defensively rarely pans out in Apex Legends - at least, it's never panned out for me. But then, I've never had a whopping great turreted machine gun to help lock down Skulltown. That's all set to change later this month with the addition of scrappy mechanic Rampart and her life partner Sheila, arriving as part of Apex Legends' sixth season on August 18th. Sheila…

Report from Apex Legends dev shows why work can’t revolve around pre-Covid expectations

Respawn have sought to defend themselves against accusations of crunch, after an anonymous employee wrote a negative review of the company on Glassdoor. The employee writes that they "feel extremely stressed and burnt out trying to keep our seasonal releases on the same aggressive timeline as pre-shelter in place productivity", "work 12-13 hours a day", and are "considering leaving without a better job to go…

Apex Legends’ crossplay won’t force PC players to match with console

It's a strange new world where this morning's video game news was discovered through TikTok. Respawn dev, Jake Smullin, took to the video sharing platform, as he so often does, to assure players that Apex Legends' upcoming crossplay feature will only put console players in PC lobbies if there's a PC player in their squad. "Have been seeing lots of console players worrying about this…

Apex Legends is getting adorable Valve-themed charms

The great EA exodus is upon us. With Titanfall 2 landing on Steam earlier this year, it's only a matter of time before Apex Legends makes the jump. Respawn's battle royale is dropping on Valve's house later this Autumn - and to commemorate the occasion, the devs are adding three delightful Half-Life and Portal-themed charms to their far-future deathmatch.

The 9 worst scientists in PC games

Science, the most difficult of the arts. We are trained from toddlerhood to respect and fear the products of scientific advancement, such as the selfie sticks or mechanical pencil. The unsurpassed boffins who create such devices are worthy of admiration. But there is one realm in which science is not such a gentle guardian of the people. That’s right, it’s videogames. In games, scientists are…

Apex Legends new event adds mobile respawn beacons and loads else

Everyone in Apex Legends is a treasure hunter now, and Crypto has a moustache. I clearly haven't been paying enough attention, but this is the backdrop to the "Lost Treasures" event and I'm happy to roll with it - not least because that event adds mobile respawn beacons. It goes live at 4pm BST (8am Pacific), and it's bringing loadsa new cosmetics along with a…

It looks like Apex Legends secret bunkers will open next week

At the start of Apex Legends' fifth season, players witnessed Kings Canyon erupt after new Legend Loba went sneaking through a creepy underground lab. She set off all sorts of alarms and caused the facility to explode, changing the landscape of the map for good. Now there's a whopping great hole where Skull Town used to be, various dig sites dotted around, and a few…

Feature: "Storytelling in a BR game is kind of our thing."

Respawn on storytelling, lore, and Season 11 of Apex Legends

Online multiplayer games aren't usually designed to tell stories. For the most part, they're built around their competitive nature, with titbits of lore to help establish a unique world for players to get invested in. However, the line between these online games and more story driven experiences is starting to blur, as games like Apex Legends begin to throw more narrative into the mix. Storytelling…
