Apex Legends is heading back to old school Kings Canyon this weekend

From today until Monday, Apex Legends is taking us back to Kings Canyon. Not just any version of Kings Canyon either, we're going all the way back to the Season 1 map, before those strange dino creatures started stomping across it. It's weird to think about playing on that year-old map again - will muscle memory kick in helping us navigate the original layout? Will…

Apex Legends is fixing Bangalore’s accidental invisibility bug

There's nothing quite as unsettling as being shot at in Apex Legends by a character that's just a gun and a floating head. As someone who plays Mirage, seeing a character essentially steal my abilities is bang out of order. Bangalore-out of order, actually, because she's the character that whose body was kind of... disappearing when wearing certain skins. This attempt to usurp Mirage players…

Duos return to Apex Legends for a limited Valentine’s event

Call up your best shot because duos are coming back to Apex Legends. Respawn announced today that the limited time mode is making another appearance for Valentine's day this year. You can play with your romantic partner of course but in my experience that's a hit or miss proposition—literally and figuratively. The week-long event lands tomorrow with a couple pink-themed goodies to earn.

Apex Season 4 is live, new Legend has an infuriating off button

The wheel of time has turned around World's Edge, bringing a new Season's worth of changes to Apex Legends. The frozen city has been cleft in twain. The Turbocharger attachment has been done away with. There's a new sniper rifle, and a new Legend called Revenent, skulking around with a button that turns other abilities off. I am not a fan of that button. The…

Apex Legends Season 4 begins tomorrow with Revenant and lots of lava

Apex Legends Season 4 begins tomorrow, bringing all the usual suspects: a new weapon, new battle pass, and a new ranked series. Oh yeah, and also that new Legend that we spent the past week banging on about. Robot man Revenant is headed to the Apex Games and the World's Edge map is getting a bit of a makeover as well.

Revenant slashes into Apex Legends’ Season 4 launch trailer

Ah, Jimmy, we hardly knew ye. Today's launch trailer for Apex Legends Season 4: Assimilation confirms it. Forge was a bust - a well-executed bait-and-switch that almost had us thinking months of speculation had been for naught. Rest in peace, beefcake. After slaughtering suits and televised stabbing, killer-for-hire and one-time Halloween-announcer Revenant is taking his collection of knives to murder island when the next season…

Respawn just bait and switched the next Apex Legends character

For each new season of of Apex Legends, it seems like players always come to the party with leaks and datamines in hand, already having unearthed half the details about whatever Respawn are about to announce. So far this season is different, sort of. Despite a red herring, it looks like the leakers may have been right after all, based on the animated in-world video…

Apex Legends is hiding something, and that something looks a lot like Revenant

Last night the Apex Legends devs treated us to a stream to announce all the new things coming to the game's fourth season. Amongst those announcements, we got our first glimpse at Apex's next character, beefy wrestler Forge. Except, Forge wasn't who most Apex fans were expecting to see. Over the last few months, there have been easter eggs and teasers galore (not to mention…

Forge, Apex Legends’ beefiest boy, arrives with Season 4 next month

Has it been a year already, Apex Legends? Blimey, it feels like just yesterday we stared at a grassy hill on Twitch for hours, waiting for those Respawn scamps to unveil not-Titanfall 3. 12 months on, and ApeLegs is gearing up for its fourth season, Assimilation. With a powerful new sniper rifle, some high-stakes changes to ranked play and the absolute unit-ness of new legend…

The Apex Legends Grand Soirée lacks for wholesome bonding activities

The Apex Legends Grand Soirée has arrived, and it's all a tad familiar. Yes, the trailer pleasingly revealed Pathfinder's true nature as a Teletubby. But planned events for the two weeks include 'fighting at night' and 'fighting with shotguns and sniper rifles'. This is a perfectly acceptable use of people's time, but it's also a missed opportunity for Respawn to peel back the masks behind…

Apex Legends’ Grand Soirée has begun, inviting players to its biggest party yet

The party has started in Apex Legends as the Grand Soirée Arcade Event began last night. For the next two weeks, Respawn are treating us to seven different rotating game modes and pretty new skins to make sure each of the Legends (and even some of your guns) are dressed to impress. I played a bit of Apex last night and jumped into the first…

Apex Legends’ next event will let you play seven unique limited-time game modes

Feeling the January blues now Apex Legends' Winter Express game mode is over? Me too. Then I suppose then it's a good job Respawn just announced that in the next event we get to play not one, not two, but seven new game modes! They're all part of Apex's Grand Soirée, an Art Deco-themed arcade event arriving on the 14th of January that boasts fancy…

For the second year running, the Glaad awards look like they’re missing the mark on celebrating queer representation

Glaad (formerly known as the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) have brought their media awards back for the 31st year, and for the second year in a row they're recognising video games "for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community and the issues that affect their lives". Last year, Jay Castello wrote about how these video…

Ten minutes of soothing grappling is exactly what you need right now

Oh, to see the sky like Mokeysniper. He's a YouTuber I've mentioned before, whose claim to fame is being really really good at grapple hooks. I'm reminding you about him because a few days ago he uploaded a ten-minute compilation of fabulous swinging in Apex Legends and Titanfall 2, complete with sublime transitions between the two. It's his goodbye to 2019.

Respawn CEO Vince Zampella is taking over Dice LA

Vince Zampella, the head of Titanfall and Apex Legends studio Respawn Entertainment, is taking over Dice LA to launch the studio's very own game for the first time.  "But Dice have released loads of games!" I hear you cry, and yes they have, but those releases have mostly come from the main studio, Dice Stockholm, while the LA developers have acted as more of a…

All aboard the Apex Legends Christmas train fight

The Apex Legends Christmas event kicked off over the weekend, and nothing says Christmas like a train full of blood sports. Mirage is hosting an Xmas bash, only instead of trading gifts they don't need, guests are invited to shoot each other while vying for control of a festive train. It's round-based, with the train routinely making stops so teams can ambush each other. It's…

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…
