How to download Apex Legends, the new Titanfall battle royale – CNET

As Titanfall fans continue to wait for a potential Titanfall 3, franchise developer Respawn Entertainment is coming to the table with its own battle royale spinoff called Apex Legends. Rumored throughout the past week and officially revealed Monday, Apex Legends is free-to-play and available now on PC, Xbox One and PS4. 

If you're imagining people duking it out in Titanfall's well-established giant mechs, you're out of luck. Instead, you'll play as one of eight different soldier classes, each with their own unique special abilities. For now the only game type is three-person squads and you take turns before the match picking your class with no option to choose the same class as your teammates. Once your squads are set, 60 people drop down to a large map to look for gear and begin battling it out with other squads.

There are no pilotable mechs in the game. 

In the developer's Twitch stream, Respawn said it planned to offer continuous support for the game, with changing seasons like many other games in the battle royale genre, new items and weapons and new "Legends" (playable classes) added over time.

PS4 and Xbox One can download the game now, while PC owners will need to use EA's Origin service for access.
