This must be EA's backup income in case Anthem bombs.

The Quartering reported this a few days ago as a leak. Looks like it's out now to download.
Free to play done right can work e.g.. fortnite, world of tanks
Interesting to see if it's unique enough from the other battle royal games, although titanfall without the titans...
With EA lootboxes  :o

PS4 psn link 34GB - Free to Play

I believe respawn confirmed Titanfall 3 was not in development (this is what they have been solely working on)

Jason Schreier said T3 was in development but it transformed over the years into Apex which is a shame. Loved T2 campaign.

Titanfall was an under rated game with great mechanics, which suffered from poor release timing.

Even without titans I am looking forward to trying this tonight simply because of the tight controls and engine in TF2.

Although speaking of suffering from bad release windows , it seems ea still haven't learnt. A month or so before battlefield battle royale? A couple weeks before Anthem? Really EA?

This is actually a lot of fun.

What I do like is if you are down, your squad mates get 90 sec to grab your "card" and take it to a respawn console so you can rejoin the game.

It is huge on twitch due to being new - over 250k watching earlier tonight. Everyone I saw seemed to be enjoying it.

Also, 1 million unique players in 8hrs.

Played a few hours last night and loved it. Other BR games used to shit me when I lost matches but I didn't get at all frustrated when getting killed last night. Also won a few matches unlike other BR games.

Are you playing on ps4 @Slayer7744 ? If so, is the movement and framerate smooth?

Yeah very smooth. Only issue I had was with the servers lagging, it's real rubberband lag when it occurs which I found is rare.

Really smooth and I have not seen any lag yet with all the games I have play.

I'm enjoying it

Great to see a dev forget about marketing and let the quality of the game do the talking. I may even load it up one day, but have too much to play for the next couple of months.

I have heard many people say it is their favourite BR game now..

This - it is.

Apex > Black Out > Fortnite.

There are just a few little things that make it so much better than any others.

Not a huge fan of the battle royal genre, couldnt stand fortnite, but this one does look interesting, maybe I'll give it a download and see.

Yeah I get that too. Maybe our interwebs is too fast :troll:
Funnily, the people I know who have the same issue all have PS4 Pro. Seems we are getting penalised for it.

I reckon it's EA wreaking havoc so they can turn around and say "see what happens when we remove microtransactions and pay to win!!"

I find if that happens, I just close app and restart then it'll connect.
I often get it after a game also, mostly it reconnects ok, rare case I need to close/restart the game. Thankfully the game startup is pretty quick - not like me having to restart BF5 all the time. F@rrrk!

Clearly the game is just trying to give everyone else a chance by keeping spaz out :troll:

An issue I was having the other night was after EVERY game, it would disconnect me from the servers with an error and I'll have to get invited to the party again. Was a PITA because sometimes when it did it, I wouldn't be able to connect back for about 5 minutes.

I remember posting in a recent BR thread, probably Blackout, asking what the appeal of these games is. To me, on paper, it sounds horrible. Spawn. Run around and loot for a while. Probably get killed.

Well

After playing Apex I still don't really get it...but somehow i get it.

That exact scenario I mentioned above happens to a newb like me more often then not, but geee when you have a good game it's pretty exhilarating. It does make me want to log back in and try again.

Overall the game feels solid in its mechanics and gameplay and I have had virtually no technical issues which is mind blowing given the amount of people connecting.

From a non BR player...I recommend at least trying this game!
