Apex Legends will soon let you tuck into more Apex Packs

Apex Legends has failed to adequately expand its repertoire of bird-based disasters. That's got nothing to do with the news, which is that they're about to start throwing more Apex Packs at everyone. I'm just annoyed and astonished that my calls to action have gone ignored, apart from the addition of a fabulous skydiving emote that I'll never own because there's still no way I'm…

Apex Legends finally gets a proper training mode alongside a limited duos mode

Halloween has come and gone from Apex Legends. Zombie hordes have vanished, replaced by the bitter chill of a November bloodbath. As the year cools down, it's time to warm up. This week's Apex patch 3.1 finally adds much-needed training mode Firing Range - a freeform arena for trying out all of Respawn's toys - and a duos mode to pit you and a friend…

EA games are returning to Steam, starting with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Electronic Arts are returning to Steam after a long hiatus. The first game to come over to the dark side is, appropriately enough, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order on November 15. It'll be followed by the EA big guns of FIFA 20, Battlefield V, and more next year. And they're bringing their subscription service, EA Origin Access, which is a real surprise.

Feature: Murder Makes Me A Badass Girl

Apex Legends’ Voidwalker cinematic turns Wraith’s infinite worlds into an absurd binary

Apex: Stories from the Outlands - “Voidwalker” is the second of, so far, two short cinematic vignettes, meant to provide some narrative to the otherwise plot-barren battle-royale frenzy of fluid movement and chaotic gun-slinging that is Apex Legends. Principally, it is a story of two women. And while it falls into a well known, often criticised trope, it also presents an infinity of choices that…

Apex Legends starts terrifying, brilliant Fight Or Fright event

There's a chill in King's Canyon tonight. Apex Legends's Fight Or Fright Halloween spectacle began today, bringing ghosts and ghouls and all that spooky stuff into Respawn's battle royale. For the next three weeks, the familiar cast of the Apex games will be dressing up in their spookiest costumes, dishing out bullets and grenades to any rascal with the nerve to come trick or treating…

Apex Legends will let you practice without pressure on the Firing Range

You've just dropped into a warzone with 59 vicious murderers. But hold up, where's your trusty Wingman? What's this, a charge rifle? What does that do? Worse, both your teammates nicked your mains, and you're dropping as Caustic. Bloody hell, how does this gassy doctor play? Before you know it, you've been booted back to the main menu with a bang. Rubbish. All that fuss…

Treasures await in Apex Legends’s newly-opened vaults

If you've been happily sliding and shooting your way across Apex Legends's new map this past week, you've no doubt noticed some tantalising secrets tucked away in certain nooks and crannies. A captain's bounty of glistening golden chestplates and helmets, paralysing quantities of purple attachments and phoenix kits, all kept just out of reach by a door on a timer. Well, my plundering friends, today…

PSA: Pathfinder can fly in Apex Legends using Crypto’s drone

I'm trying to figure out how best to convey the satisfaction of the video below. It's a bit like that "Things Fitting Perfectly Into Other Things" Tumblr, a soothing sort of energy I find enhanced by video. A sense of seamlessness, a compelling facade that the pairing of unrelated objects can somehow be correct. In this case, it's Pathfinder from Apex Legends grappling onto Crypto's…

Apex Legends will raise the dead to fight in its Halloween event

It's time for Apex Legends to get spooky. Passing your first big holiday is something of a rite of passage for live games. What off-brand hallow's eve or Wintermas am I in for this time, we collectively wonder? For ApeLegs, it's the Fight Or Fright Collection Event arriving on October 15th. Much like the notorious Iron Crown back in August, Fight Or Fright is a…

So hot it’s cool, so cool it’s hot: Apex Legends’s new map and new season arrive today

Apex Legends's new map, World's Edge, is a packing nightmare. Lava fields on one side, ice floes on the other, and I can't imagine that middle ground is anything but muggy and miserable. What am I supposed to bring? Do I wear a jacket or jorts? It's a bloody gorgeous vacation hotspot, though. I can't say I'm surprised those murderous rascals are settling in here…

Ice Ice Maybe: something cold could be coming to Apex Legends

Morning Apeleggers. Can you sense that? Something in the air? It's got a bite to it. As colder seasons approach our feeble human bodies, a puddle of evidence suggests the chill is also about to hit Apex Legends. Some say it heralds an entirely new map, on the far flung reaches of a new planet called Psamathe. More cautious folk, myself included, just reckon it's…

Apex Legends Season 3 invests in Crypto next month

Like any good hacker, Crypto - not to be confused with Krypto, The Superdog - has been quietly operating behind the scenes for a long time. He's taken the spotlight before, blowing up the dinosaur-b-gone tower that kicked off Apex Legends' first season, but we've never caught sight of this mysterious bad boy. In the last few days, that's begun to change. After making fleeting…

Apex Legends kicks off Wraith-powered Voidwalker event today

Wraith probably gets a bit of a bad rap. There are plenty of kooky characters in Apex Legends, but there's only one for the lone-wolves out there. I'm not here to judge, but if someone's run off from the team, nicked all the best gear, and refused to call in the dropship once you've been mown down by a pesky sniper, I'd put good money…

Apex Legends making Iron Crown event loot system less grubby after breaking promise

Respawn Entertainment have said that Apex Legends event loot boxes "broke [their] promise" of trying to "do monetisation in a way that felt fair." The new Iron Crown event whammed a load of new cosmetic doodads into loot boxes, and the most elusive was only available if you got all the others first. Our boy Brendan noted that it "feels grubby," and it does. Now…

Apex Legends’ stunt gauntlet is neat but the new loot shop is crap

If you are one of the three people I gassed to death last night in a giant plyboard stunt arena, I am sorry. I was overly enthusiastic about the new gauntlet that appeared on the map of Apex Legends, the game we were playing. That enthusiasm got to my head. I misjudged your friendly rifle potshots as an invitation to fill your lungs with toxic…

Apex Legends heatmap proves how much you all love Skulltown

A clever clogs on the internet has made a bunch of heatmaps for battle royale shooter Apex Legends, and they confirm the worst: everyone loves Skulltown. Even though Skulltown is a hateful warren of confusion, panic and death. The maps were made by a Reddit boffin with an unsayable username (it’s “ZYy9oQ”) and they show the popularity of all drop zones across the violent bumslide…

Apex Legends tournament pulled from TV following US shootings

A tournament for cartoony battle royale game Apex Legends - which was scheduled to air this weekend on ABC and ESPN - has been postponed in light of the recent US shootings. The decision to pull the weekend broadcast was confirmed to RPS by an ESPN spokesperson, who tells us the tournament will now be broadcast on the channel in October. "The decision was made…

Apex Legends will soon get to fight on their lonesome

Me, Astrid and Brendy recently spent six straight hours of our Sunday playing Apex Legends. We ran around getting shot at till our Apelegs nearly fell off. We emerged better, stronger and closer. It was marvellous, and to some extent a reflection of how the game truly shines when intersecting abilities meet excellently-supported team co-ordination. You can usually only play in teams of three, and…

Befriending the creatures of Apex Legends

You can never have too many friends. Especially not when you've yet to befriend the dragons and dinosaurs of Apex Legends, now romping around Kings Canyon thanks to the advent of Season 2. I'm going to go and meet them, thus hopefully bricking up a fraction of the gaping hole loneliness leaves in both man and beast.
