More stories from Kaitlyn Nordine


Apex Legends was released without any prior announcement or marketing, so it was a surprise to every gamer in the world. It is free-to-play and has an online review of 4.5 out of 5 stars. Apex Legends is the newest version of a battle royal type game.

During the game you need to forage for weapons and armor and you scramble to eliminate other players. The game can be played in three modes, alone, in squads where you can talk to your teammates to help win the game together or the newly released duos version that was released on November 5th and lasted to November 19th. Many people say that you must play a lot before you can finally get good at the game because the tutorial isn’t good at explaining everything you need to know to be able to play the game successfully.

The game was designed by Mr. Mackey McCandlish, the music was written by Stephen Barton and is run by the Respawn Entertainment company which was founded in 2010. Respawn Entertainment is the creators of the three Titanfall games and the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Some people could argue that Apex Legends is just a remake of Fortnite, however many reviewers say that Apex Legends is a better version of Fortnite because it fixes all the problems and complaints that people had about Fortnite. And where Fortnite is in a third person view, Apex Legends is in first person you have a better experience.

So far, the game has 11 characters, all with different personalities and special abilities. The characters are Bangalore, Bloodhound, Caustic, Gibraltar, Lifeline, Mirage, Octane, Pathfinder, Wattson, wraith, and the newest addition to the game Crypto. 

Apex Legends has a futuristic style set within the Titanfall universe, thirty years after the events in Titanfall 2. The new update also added more weapons, and a firing range to help new players get used to the controls of the game. Another new feature from the update is daily challenges, with three challenges a day ranging from easy, to medium, then finally hard difficulties.

After releasing the game Apex Legends was nominated and won The Golden Joystick (Grammy’s of the gaming world) for Best Multiplayer Game. And this year they are nominated in five categories; Best ongoing game, best community support, Best Action Game and Best Multiplayer Game.
