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…

Season 1 is here, and leading the charge is Octane - the new character for Apex Legends, and the most mobile Legend we've yet seen.

This might just be my new favourite character, and…

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…

Feature: Turn the other cheek

Butt-slide Royale: Apex Legends and creative movement in shooters

I’m not sure anyone at Respawn has properly busted their ass on the curb. It hurts. The last time I cracked my rear off the concrete in a moment of skating hubris, I was limping for days. Fortunately for the fifty million folks flying around in Apex Legends, a billowing cushion of air has turned what should be an embarrassing accident into the most compelling…

Apex Legends Ping guide – Ping system, Apex Legends Ping Menu, advanced tips

Apex Legends' Ping system is the gold standard for non-verbal communication in games. This marker system is not a new idea, but Respawn have refined it and made it so very easy to use to communicate with your teammates in such a variety of ways, that it's no wonder it was all anyone could talk about when Apex first released. Our Apex Legends Ping guide…

Playstyle Royale: The Floor Is Lava

This is Playstyle Royale, where I pretend eight months going by isn't too long for sticking with the same intro formula to look weird, but also where I head into a battle royale game and try to win my chicken dinner while adhering to arbitrary rules. This week I'm playing Apex Legends, and the floor is lava. I'm going to win a game without touching…

‘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…

Movement and mobility is the heart of Apex Legends, the phenomenally successful battle royale from Titanfall devs Respawn - and no surprise, considering Respawn's previous games.
