During a light-hearted sparring on Twitter with KFC’s Gaming channel (yes, this is a real thing), and some commenters responding to its meme-d nudging of Respawn Entertainment, Apex Legends developer Rayme Vinson stated that the studio’s team has been “growing since launch”, and that they’ve “got tons of stuff coming”.

Apex Legends is massive enough to rival any online game on the market, so of course it’s going to get significant new content and features. We’ve already seen leaks and datamines suggesting what to expect from new Legends, including one called Octane. A Reddit post seems to give more details, but this is one leak that no single grain of salt will cover.
We’re big fans of Respawn’s new multiplayer shooter Apex Legends, and in our review, Ali even called it “the best battle royale to date.” The game’s been a critical and popular success by any measure, but that’s not to say it’s there isn’t room for improvement. One YouTuber has dug into Apex Legends’ netcode and says that it appears to be rather poorly optimized.
Some Origin users are reporting that their security settings have changed to allow their EA profiles – along with the name they have associated with it – to be seen by anyone. Players who have accounts dating back to 2011 and earlier are saying their privacy settings have changed to allow their accounts to be publicly visible along with their real name.

But what if we could translate something’s goodness into a numerical score which we could then endlessly debate? Luckily, the magical world of game criticism allows us to do exactly that.
Apex Legends does not have Titans, or the wall-running and double-jumping mobility options that you’d expect from a Titanfall game – after all, there’s a reason it doesn’t say Titanfall in the title. But that doesn’t mean developer Respawn didn’t try to get the iconic bits of the series into Apex Legends. It just turns out that they all break a competitive battle royale.
It’s now common knowledge that part of EA’s strategy for rolling out Apex Legends involved giving influencers an early look at the game, which resulted in a fair amount of leakage ahead of its official reveal.
Apex Legends launched just yesterday, but there are no breaks in the march of a live game. Respawn has laid out a roadmap of what to expect from the battle royale title’s first year, and it looks like it’ll be more of everything – Legends, weapons, loot, and a Fortnite-style set of seasonal battle passes.
