Apex Legends™ review
Battle Royale is now at a premium, especially after PUBG and Fortnite. Many of the manufacturers have turned to this topic with enthusiasm, but only Apex Legends has been able to hit the big jackpot. The game was released by Respawn Entertainment on April 4, 2019. There was no pre-ad campaign. And after a very short time, Apex Legends became the record holder for Twitch views with 2.5 million players per day.
Apex Legends has many undeniable advantages. The novelty is both a game and a new esports discipline. It is similar to Call of Duty's battle royale with good graphics, arcade shooting, and a compact map.
The main idea of the game: heroes from all lands flock to the Outer Earths to compare their strength, fight with each other. The game can only be a team one. The squad that survived wins (there are 20 groups of 3 participants).
The creators came up with an original pinging principle, which makes it possible to interact with newcomers, even if there is no voice communication or there is a language barrier. Such functionality with one click of a button allows you to mark opponents and place loot and marks.
Teamwork becomes vital at the very beginning of the round. Good communication between gamers is also quite important here. Team members have the ability to effectively help each other. For example, if they do not have time to save the player, then the partners can take the flag belonging to him to the station, bringing it back to life.
Such things allow you to immerse yourself in the game with enthusiasm. It requires teamwork and the ability to think strategically and tactically.
Apex legends characters have their own original characteristics, each with unique talents. It is important to not just mindlessly shoot at everything that moves, it is necessary to build tactics and strategy, taking into account the interaction with the team.
"Apex" is an intellectual game, first of all, it requires different skills that "work" in a single complex. Each character has different types of skills. Pathfinder is a support, such cyborgs are good for reconnaissance behind enemy lines. Girl Rafe, who escaped from a psychiatric hospital, has unique abilities to move from one dimension to another. Elliot Witt is a professional illusionist who loves easy money.
