Plan your getaway when Apex Legends: Escape launches November 2. Learn more about Apex Legends: Escape: Legends' new character is a familiar face from Titanfall 2Oct 19, 2021 - Rock, Paper, ShotgunApex Legends is adding a second spooky murderbot to its roster, one that both Apex and Titanfall 2 fans might recognise. Ash is a simulacrum (human consciousness in a freaky robot) who was previously a baddie in Titanfall 2. Since May this year, she's been overseeing Apex's new 3v3 Arenas mode - you know, that ominous voice that tells you to crush your enemies. But in the battle royale's next season, Escape, she'll be joining the fight herself.

Who is Ash, and who is Leigh?Ash is Apex Legends' next playable hero, Season 11 trailer coming later this weekOct 18, 2021 - VG247Apex Legends is getting another new hero, Ash, when Season 11 – Escape – kicks off at some point in the not-too-distant future. Thanks to a brand new Stories from the Outlands trailer (embedded below) released by Apex Legends developer Respawn and publisher EA today, we know the name and backstory of the next character we're going to get to play as: Ash. If you're big into your Titanfall/Apex Legends lore, you may remember Ash from the second game; Ashleigh 'Ash' Reid is a Simulacrum Pilot and baddy from Titanfall 2. She's changed a bit since we saw her in the last game, though, and the video embedded above gives us some insight into how she became this odd android creature she is today.

Something fierce. Something monstrous. Starting October 12th and running to November 2nd, join the Monsters Within Event. Fight to conquer the Encore Arenas map, the place where Seer made his name as a man to be reckoned with. Special event-limited cosmetic sets highlight the scary side of some of our most fearsome Legends, including Revenant, Bloodhound, Caustic, and Seer. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/38098458/b1d6cf31137932ae5197902766324a9ce7dca875.png NEW ARENAS MAP: ENCORE {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/38098458/e9d63a3c3228231e32e971431012924e409a7efd.png Encore is located on Seer's home planet, Boreas, and is one of the main arenas where he has been seen fighting. Seer’s most ardent fans would often cluster to watch him duel there. This map is open and offers strong environmental awareness. Good teamwork and strategy are key if you want to succeed in this arena. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/38098458/f9f36f71e2bd403bf404476ba51ed1a028793ecc.png The layout offers combat over two high-ground power positions.

Establishing control there depends heavily on support fire from your teammates. The flanks on top of the seat ramps are wide and exposed. The middle of Encore is devoid of high ground positions and separates the stage and the lounge platform. SHADOW ROYALE {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/38098458/72278b218fea6bb3803721d7108a7ac8becbb4c1.png The last week of this event features the return of fan-favorite Shadow Royale.

This Tuesday, Apex Legends players will be able to jump into the battle royale's new spooky event, Monsters Within. It brings back the limited-time mode that turns Legends into zombies to hunt their pals, adds a bunch of eerie cosmetics, and introduces a new ominous-looking Arenas map to boot. I'm very excited. Halloween! Read more Apex Legends' Halloween-themed Monsters Within event starts next weekOct 7, 2021 - EurogamerApex Legends is getting in on the spooky action October inevitably brings with its special Halloween-themed Monsters Within limited-time event, starting next Tuesday, 12th October. Monsters Within's most notable addition is Encore, a brand-new map for Arenas mode that whisks players off to Boreas, the home planet of recently introduced playable character Seer. This wide-open map is flanked by two high-ground power positions - the VIP Lounge and the Performance Stage - said to require strong environmental awareness, teamwork, and strategy if victory is to be secured. As you'll immediately notice in the Monsters Within trailer below, the one thing Encore isn't is spooky, but things get a little more sinister starting on 26th October, when Apex Legends' Shadow Royale mode returns.

Respawn gives definitive-sounding answer on possibility of more Titanfall, then backtracksSep 23, 2021 - EurogamerApex Legends developer Respawn has backtracked on a definitive-sounding statement regarding the future of fan-favourite series Titanfall. Earlier this week, Respawn's Jason Garza gave a refreshingly frank answer when asked by a fan about what was going on with Titanfall these days. In short: nothing much at the moment, as the studio was so busy. But as coverage of his comments gathered steam, Respawn this morning issued a new statement via Twitter aimed at press coverage of the matter, deliberately muddying the waters. Read more Apex Legends still has stability issues after patch that should've fixed themSep 23, 2021 - Rock, Paper, ShotgunIf you've tried to play Apex Legends over the last week or so and noticed that things have been pretty slow, you're not alone. Since the game's Evolution Collection event launched last week, the battle royale and its servers have been struggling, and Respawn Entertainment have been tinkering away to try and sort it all out. Yesterday, they issued a patch to resolve a number of bugs and improve stability, but having played a few matches myself last night, it seems we're not out of the woods just yet. Read more Respawn says 'who knows what the future holds' after confusing everyone with 'Titanfall 3 doesn't exist' statementSep 23, 2021 - VG247In a livestream earlier this week, Respawn Entertainment community coordinator Jason Garza shot down any hope we might have had for a new Titanfall game. Garza was asked to offer an update on the series, reiterating - to everyone's disappointment - that there's nothing in development there. "Don't get your hopes up, man. I've said this before, we just don't have anything in the works. There's nothing there. We've got too many other games in the works right now," Garza said. It's worth noting that this statement was made on Garza's own YouTube channel towards the end of a personal stream. Nevertheless, having a job as someone who often speaks for Respawn caused his comments to go viral. Read more Apex Legends' server issues may not get fixed for a few more daysSep 19, 2021 - VG247Respawn has said that various issues regarding player problems with disconnection and server errors in battle royale, Apex Legends, may not get fixed until a patch is pushed to the game on September 22. If you're a regular Apex Legends player, you may not be surprised to hear that the hit FPS game is once again suffering with server issues. The latest issues don't come from hackers irritated by Respawn's treatment of the Titanfall series, but rather are cropping up thanks to – seemingly – a recent patch that was introduced to the game. Develoepr Respawn has itself confirmed the current server issues, with the studio saying it's noted three times the ususal number of disconnections from the game across all platforms. Read more Rampart's pick rate now higher than Seer's in Apex Legends Season 10Sep 16, 2021 - The LoadoutShe has meandered near the bottom of our Apex Legends tier list ever since she was released in Season 6, but following her buff in this week's update, Rampart's pick rate is finally on the rise. The minigun-toting legend was given the ability to move around with her trusty Shiela, rather than have to keep it mounted in one place. As a result, her pick rate has skyrocketed over the last couple of days, to the point where she is now being played more often than Seer, Season 10's new legend, and OG legends like Bangalore. Prior to her buff, Rampart was at the very bottom of the pile when it comes to pick rates, with only 1.4% of players willing to pick her. However, she now boasts a pick rate of 5.2%, according to Apex Status, making her the sixth most-played legend in the game right now. Only the meta picks of Octane, Wraith, Pathfinder, Bloodhound, and Lifeline are being picked more frequently. Read the rest of the story...

There is no segregation or separate competitions for players on different inputs or platforms - it's all one big arena. It's no secret, however, that in almost any FPS game there are advantages and disadvantages to competing on a controller versus a mouse and keyboard, or on a console versus a PC. Whether it be frame rate, aim assist, or FOV sliders, there are plenty of aspects that spark debate. Apex is no different, and with both the console and PC factions colliding for Year 2, ALGS commissioner John Nelson says that maintaining a strong relationship with the game's development team and trusting its ability to keep the game balanced is essential for cross-play competition. "We have a really close relationship with the Respawn development team," Nelson tells The Loadout. " being able to communicate with that team on a daily basis in terms of new legends that are coming out in future seasons, different meta changes, and gameplay balance." Read the rest of the story...

Our resident modder is showing those plonkers who’s in charge with the Rampart Town Takeover, Big Maude. Check out her mobile shop, parked between Lava City and the Geyser. It’s sure to be a popular POI for the rest of Emergence. Check out the full blog below for all the details in the update. Rampart Town Takeover - Big Maude {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/38098458/b360f6f147f2f47f7ff13fde329cca9903e1b6b4.png After a few rough starts to her previous shops, Rampart is pulling out the big guns with the mod shop of her dreams. Finally, she'll be able to show the Outlands—and Big Sister—what she's always been capable of creating. Enter Big Maude, Rampart’s custom shop (also a giant tank, what else would you expect?) located near Lava City in World’s Edge. This POI is big enough to accommodate a few teams fighting over the shop itself, and she’s also built a wonderful paintball course out front that acts as a spill off location if the drop just looks too spicy. Inside the shop, you can use collected materials to purchase Rampart’s Custom Modded Paintball Weapons from the new Vend-it Machines. These guns cost a bit, but they come fully kitted at different tiers. This should give players a reason to rotate here mid-game if their weapons just aren’t as upgraded as they’d like. As usual, be on the lookout for extra lore sprinkled around. Rampart’s shop is back open for business!

For all of her hard work, Rampart’s getting a “Problem Solver:” a brand-new Heirloom pipe wrench, complete with a gumball dispenser. Who could ask for anything more?

Tap-strafing is a movement exploit that allows players to keep their momentum after slide-jumping, letting them make speedier turns than they should. Unfortunately for Respawn, they say getting rid of this tech has some "unexpected side effects", so tap-strafing gets to stay in the game, for now. Read more Apex Legends is the First Game to Top Fortnite 10 Days in a Row on TwitchFeb 13, 2019 - GitHypWith a growing list of failed battle royale games that at one point had thriving player bases and viewer numbers, Epic’s Fortnite looked to continue its dominance in 2019 with no real competition in sight… that is, until the creators of Titanfall dropped in last week out of nowhere with Apex Legends. Last year, many believed triple-A military shooters, Call of Duty and Battlefield, could take over the battle royale genre in 2019. But with the hype for both now at an all-time low, EA and Respawn's brilliant marketing strategy, improved BR mechanics, and free-to-play format have resulted in Apex Legends becoming the most successful new game since Fortnite. Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was actually the first game to take attention away from Fortnite for a whole week during the end of 2018; peaking with 508k concurrent viewers on Twitch and holding the #1 position for 8 days in a row. But unlike Black Ops 4, which saw its viewer base decline by 66% in its first week, Apex Legends has kept the interest of top streamers and its viewer base has grown over time -- keeping it in the #1 position on Twitch for a record-breaking 10 days in a row. Yesterday’s first-ever tournament for the game was Apex Legends' biggest day yet with a peak of 670k concurrent viewers during Twitch Rivals where team Kings Canyon’s Ninja, King Richard, and Dizzy took home the W. Compared to the game’s peak viewer count of 486k viewers on its launch day, Apex Legends has since seen viewership rise by 38%; which is a great sign that Apex could have some serious staying power at the top, especially when considering the hype for most new games usually fades away by their second week on Twitch. Player counts for Apex Legends also seem to be aligning once again with viewers' interest on Twitch. Respawn’s CEO, Vince Zampella, announced that the game broke 10 million unique players and 1 million concurrent players just 72 hours after launching. And just 4 days after his first announcement, Zampella also revealed that Apex Legends has already more than doubled that number with 25 million unique players and well over 2 million concurrent players at its peak. Seeing Apex Legends grow so quickly is reminiscent of Fornite’s meteoric rise after Epic shifted their focus to the battle royale genre. Unfortunately, at the moment all we have are official announcements from Respawn regarding the game’s continued growth... So for now, viewership on Twitch is currently our best indicator of the current state of the game, and as long as it keeps increasing at the top of Twitch, it's safe to say that the player counts are too.
