Watch out PUBG and Fortnite, there’s a new rival on the block



You'll be a participant in the Apex Games, fighting in an arena from a level playing field.

Characters in Apex Legends also have special traits.

This isn't to say that the game won't eventually include a solo and duos mode, but now, it is not being offered. Instead, you'll choose from a group of Legends (the heroes of this title), each with their own specific skills and weapons. For example, Wraith is a Legend who is able to move and resposition to safety by travelling through the "void" while Gibraltar uses a variety of shields to protect allies and block enemy fire. What do you think Zampella could be teasing?

Fittingly, Respawn's new shooter is also made unique by the fact that characters can, well, respawn. For one, teams are mandatory, while being killed doesn't necessary mean you have to jump back to the menu, but can actually be revived and brought back into the fray by one of your partners.

It's a cracking game so far.

Microsoft explains why Windows Update did not work on January 29, 2019
Today, Microsoft is providing some clarification for what went wrong and is absolving itself of any blame in the situation. If you're experiencing problems downloading updates from Windows Update , don't worry - it's not just you.

Overall, for a free-to-play title that just came out, Apex Legends looks and runs well.

Season 1 officially begins in March, and will mark the launch of the battle pass system.

I.e. the big surprise in the reveal is an Oprah moment - that the bally game is released into the world at the culmination of it. Those items will include both "exclusive seasonal cosmetics" as well as the loot box-style Apex Packs - but no Legends.

The game has three main in-game currencies: Apex Coins, Legend Tokens, and Crafting Metals.

Only six of those eight are available from the get-go, with the other two left available to unlock gradually through general play or to unlock by purchase if you're that way inclined. Apex Legends still requires Xbox LIVE Gold to play on Xbox One. But, don't expect it to be a Titanfall 3 as there aren't any giant mechs this time. Secondly, many of Titanfall's movement mechanics, such as wallrunning, aren't present here.
