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…

Have you played… Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order?

My journey playing through Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for guides on RPS was a very strange one. I played for ten hours on the first day, and came away exhausted and with only negative things to say about it. The combat was like Sekiro but worse, the cutscenes were lengthy and unskippable, the frame rate was inconsistent, and the puzzle sections were just about…

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.

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…

Damn… Steam is finally good

They've only gone and put Titanfall 2 on Steam, readers. BT-7274 (and whatever the boring human bloke's name was) have jettisoned from their exclusive spot on Origin, crashing into Valve's house like, well, a hulking great metal man. At a third of the price for the next three weeks, you've no excuse for not checking out one of the finest first-person shooters of the last…

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…

Pathfinder may not look all that swift, but prepare to be flummoxed, because he is in fact one of the most mobile Apex Legends characters out there.
