Titanfall takes aim on \'Fortnite\' with \'Apex Legends,\' a free-to-play battle royale game

The rumors were true: Titanfall is coming back in 2019 not as a numbered sequel, but as a total spin-off that capitalizes on some of the hottest trends in modern gaming.

Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale game — think Fortnite or PUBG — set in the Titanfall universe. There aren't any of the towering mechs that exist at the heart of the core Titanfall games, however. Instead, Apex Legends takes a page from Overwatch in highlighting a roster of characters that each bring unique gear and abilities to the mix.

Publisher Electronic Arts staged a simultaneous game reveal and release on Monday, with an extended trailer/livestream running through the basics. (There's also a gameplay trailer and a launch trailer.) While there are plenty of wrinkles that make it stand out, the basics should sound immediately familiar to fans of these sorts of games.

Apex Legends is out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Origin.
