Apex Legends became so popular at the time that it almost overshadowed the important games of the Battle Royale genre. Apex Legends, the free Battle Royale game that reached 1 million players as of the first day of its publication, reached 10 million players and 1 million players at the end of the week. (As of now, 25 million players and over 2 million players). Whether Merlin’s Kazan team is just free to make Apex Legends, which we play for long hours, or just some of the gameplay mechanics that they can’t do or don’t, Respawn has brought a new breath to Battle Royale. Is it possible?
The names of the players who created the Call of Duty brand were created by Jason West and Vince Zampella, who were formed after the release of Activision by Respawn Entertainment Titanfall. The Respawn developer team, who is at the head of the experienced duo in shooting game, has also reflected on Apex Legends. Titanfall themed games, animations, hitting sensations, and even in terms of classes, the Titanfall has a lot of traces.
Apex Legends has similar aspects to the classic Battle Royale games, but there are also parts of the genre. Jump from a plane (or from the bus!) To the map, try to stay in a circle on a map that is narrowing towards a random area, run a loot, eliminate the opponents in the final, eliminate the opponents in the circle and try to be the last surviving person (team), Battle Royale with Apex Legends Intersection set of type. Apex Legends’ Battle Royale type is the most fun part of the game in my opinion.
Namely; In Apex Legends, you start the game by choosing one of the characters called Legends. 8 characters have their own special ability, each character has 3 different features. (Tactical, Passive and Ultimate) The characters in the game and briefly the features are as follows;
Lifeline – Health Care.
Bangalore – Soldier
Mirage – Hologram Specialist
Wraith – Portal
Bloodhound – Technological Trace Driver
Gibraltar – Shield Place
Caustic – Toxic Trapper
Pathfinder – Rope Shooter
Currently, six of these characters are available for free. Class distinction makes Apex Legends, a team game-oriented Battle Royale game, played in groups of three. In groups of three, you are jumping into the playing field with a music that brings gas to the back. One person is the jump leader and can download the entire team on the map. So Apex Legends wants you to play a team game in the first few seconds. Obviously the pleasure of the game comes out when playing a team game. In my opinion, this class system is perfectly fit for the type of Battle Royale, in which everyone thinks in a direction and is after a loot.
Using the portal to open the portal to the right points with Wraith, infiltrate the back of the enemy, or use this portal to quickly change the zone, the shoot brings a tactical touch to the game as well. Likewise, the health worker Lifeline character has become an essential part of team play. The tactical feature of the Gibraltar character temporarily open the shield for 15 seconds. This shield works in critical places so that a shield character in the team can open the way to victory. Especially before removing the friend falling on the ground before turning the game can turn the shield. Apex Legends is a game that overrides Overwatch. Speaking of turning a game called Done. It is possible to reverse a friend who died in Apex Legends at the end of the tunnel. When someone dies and takes the card over to the recycling points, you can make the deceased born from the ashes like the phoenix bird again.
Continuous communication is very important for team play. Apex Legends developers will be aware of this, even if you do not have a microphone connection, you can easily communicate with your teammates using the detailed marking system. Let’s go here, there are enemies, here you can share information to your friends, even if you don’t have a microphone, you can mark the information here. Even your character says the type of weapon after marking. Not only that, when you are away from your friends or outside the circle, your character speaks and warns us that we are too far away from each other, or we are outside the circle. Details like this prove that Respawn has a head on the Apex Legends. The expectations of the players are analyzed well.
The mechanics we didn’t encounter in the Battle Royale games brought a new breath to the genre. The producer did not exploit the popular type, but tried to put something on it. New gameplay mechanics has managed to increase the excitement. This is a respectable act. Just trying to resurrect your dead friend has been an innovative game mechanics that adds a new level of excitement to the game that works well.
