Feign Belgianness in Apex Legends to replace Battle Pass loot boxes with crafting materials

Canny Apex Legends have figured out a way to get crafting materials from levelling up the Battle Pass instead of loot boxes: by pretending to be in Belgium, a country which has cracked down on loot boxes. This results in a slightly smaller overall reward but materials do let players craft specific skins rather than hoping for blind luck with the boxes. All you have…

Apex Legends bounces into its Wild Frontier season today

Apex Legends's first major update since launch is live now. New robo-legged (no apelegs here) legend Octane is all about going fast, although he's a bit tougher than his skinny Borderlands-esque frame would suggest. He constantly regenerates health, and can invest it in temporary speed boosts. His ultimate ability is a big ol' jump pad - a portable trampoline that can be used by your…

‘They’re just rumours, innit’ say Apex Legends developers on datamining

Rumours have been churning around data-mined discoveries in Apex Legends, only to be quashed last night by developers Respawn Entertainment. Or not quashed, as such. But they have said, to paraphrase, 'look these are rumours ok, you'll get your battle pass soon plz calm down'. Respawn's statement also follows Origin prematurely showing some users adverts for Season One, featuring a new mobility-focused hero called Octane…

Ban galore: Apex Legends has banned over 355k PC accounts for cheating

Respawn Entertainment have vowed to improve the cheat-busting tech in Apex Legends, though it seems to be doing pretty well already considering they say they've banned over 355,000 accounts since launch five weeks ago. It's good to see Titanfall's free-to-play battle royale spin-off slam so many bans, as the low cost of entry on F2P games is like poo to a fly. In this powerful…

Apex Legends balance patch demotes Wingman to Wingboy

War never changes, but the guns do sometimes get rebalanced. Apex Legends developers Respawn have finished the first balance pass on their free-to-play battle royale shooter, tweaking the Wingman revolver and the Peacekeeper shotgun to make them a tad less deadly while increasing the availability of energy weapons. Those and a few bug fixes are the only changes so far, but the devs have also…

First Apex Legends update adds a chargey-uppy gun

You know a game's good when it's got me doing news about a single new gun. The first proper Apex Legends update has thrown Havoc into the ring, resulting in a thousand games journos writing variations of this sentence. (Apex, for those that have spent the past couple of weeks on Mars or something, is a free-to-play battle royale FPS from the Titanfall devs.) The…

Apex Legends players are becoming cryptid hunters

Players who have been parachuting into free-to-play battle royale Apex Legends (Apelegs? Have we committed one way or the other on Apelegs yet?) have stumbled on something cute – a small plushie version of Nessie, hanging out in the water near Cascades. Nessie may be hiding more secrets though, the devs have teased, leading to a fully fledged manhunt for the elusive cryptids.

Apex Legends ping tool was tested by making everyone silent strangers

I've only played a few rounds of new free-to-play battle royale Apex Legends, but in every match I've been amazed at how closely my team of perfect strangers worked together. Not a single word shared in text or voice chat, but between automated character chatter, a helpful UI and liberal use of the ping tool kept it together until late into the game. To achieve…

Titanfall isn’t done yet says Respawn Entertainment CEO

Battle royale spin-off Apex Legends seems to be doing well, but it's good to know that there's more proper Titanfall still on the way. Titanfall 3 may officially not be on the cards, but according to this tweet from Respawn CEO Vince Zampella, there is something bearing the series name "for later in the year". Of course, this isn't confirmation of much beyond the continuation of…

Respawn’s free-to-play Apex Legends gets off to a healthy start

Given how many big multiplayer games seem to trip over their own shoelaces and tumble over the nearest banister on release day these days (heyyyyy Anthem demo), fair play to Respawn for announcing, releasing and yet not making a muddy pig's' ear of Apex Legends all on the same day. The free-to-play battle royale set in the Titanfall universe - which everyone on the internet…

Titanfall crew Respawn reveal their new game today – and might release it immediately

Titanfall but battle royale but without the mechs: that's the word on the street about what we can expect from Apex Legends, the next game from Respawn Entertainment. The Titanfall & Titanfall 2 studio, which these days is but one limb on the EA millipede, has confirmed they'll be revealing the game today, and that Apex Legends is indeed its name. Meanwhile, rumour swirls that…
