Respawn has just confirmed via its official Twitter account that its rumoured game, Apex Legends, is real and will be officially revealed on Monday at 8AM PT. The team aims to reveal the game via a stream, so expect lots of gameplay videos (as well as its official first details).

From what we know so far, Apex Legends will be a free to play Titanfall Hero Battle Royale game that will feature classes/heroes with unique abilities, maximum of 60 players per server, and will offer 3v3 matches. Apex Legends will run on a modified version of Valve’s Source engine and as its description suggests, there won’t be any Titans to control.
Naturally, and given its free to play nature, the game will come with micro-transactions and lootboxes for cosmetic items. These microtransactions will be similar to those featured in Overwatch so hopefully this won’t turn into a pay to win game.
EA and Respawn has already let some streamers play Apex Legends and it has received positive impressions from them. But anyway, we’ll have more to share later today when the stream goes live so stay tuned for more!
