That is an astounding feat. They dropped it out of the blue too. We heard a rumor about it a few days ago and then it drops, right?

Congrats to Respawn. It is a hell of game!

Pretty solid servers tonight as well, I think surprise announcement meant people logged on more sporadically and didn’t hit everything at once and that helped. Overall I was pretty happy with my time with the game, only got one game with a friend in and got second with a random, by tomorrow I’ll be trash but at least I have that.

They dropped it out of the blue too

Vince's tweets about that were funny. He was basically like "Yeah, this is going to be F2P, loot boxes, battle royale. Marketing it will be a nightmare. Screw it, we're just releasing the game and letting it speak for itself."

Some times "fuck it, we'll do it live" actually works.

ID: efrxgo2

Yes they deserve it!

ID: efsulxp

Yea...it's alot of fun. I'm not sure it'll take over Fortnite in popularity and usage, but I def think it's better than PUBG and Black Ops 4....plus the fact that it's F2P means it could still be pretty successful even if it never makes Fortnite levels of money.

I really enjoy this game. I miss my titan but I enjoy the combat a lot. It’s fast enough that I don’t feel like I’ve just wasted all that time preparing just to die to the first guy.

The bridge is my favorite area right now. I love pushing your team down the mountain and through the buildings. Well designed area. Also a death trap to drop into lol

No more wall running but at least we can still slide

wasting more time on the loading screen than playing was my feeling when i tried fortnite, i was bad anyway, but the game can get boring fast with that

The best battle royals game that has been released so far. Free cosmetics by playing. Rip blackout.

ID: eft4urz

Oh serious? Didn't know there were free cosmetics. I can't say I've really looked at or understand the rewards system yet. I'll have to dive deeper into it tonight.

ID: efsrhup

I wouldn’t say that it’s the best. PUBG has come a long way and in that category of BR it’s also very good now. As far as this category goes, it’s my favorite over fortnite/blackout

I haven't put it down since I started 6 hours ago (really gotta get some sleep now though rip). I enjoy a few rounds of pubg here and there and i'm not totally against battle royales... but this, this is fun

Yup, I regret my purchase now that basically the same game but better has come out.

Edit: For free

One of the rare games where I'm inclined to buy EA's (Apex) coins just to support the devs.

Here's hoping it stays at the high hundreds of thousands for a long while. I'm definitely hesitant to put real money into the game right now, though I'm very excited to see what Season 1 brings to the table!

Good job Respawn. I don’t know when the last time was I played a game day one and it wasn’t buggy, or just incomplete, much better job done compared to some AAA companies who make profits off of selling a game.

Pretty happy about Respawn, they deserve it for sure, I'm bamboozled by the quality of this game, in every aspect, from the core game to the theme and art style. It's edgy without being cringy or too edgy (looking at you LB...).


26 : Anonymous2019/02/05 07:01 ID: efs5mm0

I can't believe i'm saying this in the wake of AAA disasters from 2018... But this game is good. Best playing BR out there. Gameplay and gunplay is spot on. Great gun feedback. Nice art. I mean, i'm impressed. Cosmetics done so well. How this came out of nowhere is beyond me. Would love dances for all the characters, though the execute is FANTASTIC.

27 : Anonymous2019/02/05 07:08 ID: efs5xjr

So can i finally delete Black Ops 4? Will my 2 retarded friends who still play that game enjoy this?

ID: efs6ykz

Absolutely. It’s way more fun and polished than Blackout in my opinion. I hate Battle Royale games and never got into fortnite, I always though pubg was cool but I never got into it, and I thought blackout would be the one for me since I grew up on call of duty but for some reason I could bare to play more than one match of this games whether I one or lost. This game I find actually fun. I have just as much fun when I lose as I do when I win tbh. And the ping system is amazing and makes it a lot easier to win with ransoms without using a mic. Also the legend abilities are great in a BR setting without being op. And the monetization in this game is amazing without being scummy. It’s basically the Overwatch cosmetic system in a BR game with a few tweaks. You can earn cosmetic items in packs that you can earn, or you can save up crafting materials to craft the specific cosmetic you want. I think you’ll enjoy it.

28 : Anonymous2019/02/05 08:14 ID: efs8hqr

Had a ton of fun playing it today, I might have played too much though, almost level 20 already lol. I am really excited to see the future of this game, I have a feeling it will go far considering it’s a free to play BR that is really good.

I am also really curious if there are going to be seasons like every other game does.

Confirmed on the official website

2 days ago when I read the rumours of it I immediately thought Radical heights,or realm royals. But damm this is good. When they release the battle pass I think they're going to have a homerun on their hands.

It’s gonna quadruple over the next few days as people go into the PS store to download the free PS+ games for February.

That’s how I saw it, was just checking if the new games were there yet, saw this, video looked cool, downloaded it immediately.

I enjoyed the first couple of games and I'm really excited to play it with friends later. The only thing that I found odd was that the character seems so slow.. But I guess that's just something to get used to, after playing Blackout and Battlefield a lot lately.

37 : Anonymous2019/02/05 15:15 ID: efssb6q

Is the game as fast paces as TF2 typically is? Lots of running and hanging on walls while no-scoping sniper shots?

ID: eft1gcf

Nah no wall running or hanging. You can climb up a wall but nothing past that. The game is still really fast paced though in my opinion. Definitely a good game.

When I got off work, I turned on my PS4 and thought I’d check the PS+ free games of the month and saw the clip for Apex. Just watching the trailer I knew this was going to be a fun game. Spent like 6 hours playing it last night. Didn’t get a win 🙁 but I had a lot of fun playing. Been focusing on hot dropping just to get a better feel for the combat

Great to see the game grow quickly, I think it's suer fun so far. Servers on PC were flawless as well!

41 : Anonymous2019/02/05 16:12 ID: efsx0za

To be honest it was kind of refreshing having a surprise release. Zero expectations and no time to knit pick what the game does and doesn't have on Reddit. Just jump right in and play.

Had about 8 hours with a couple friends yesterday and we had a blast. My buddies haven't been impressed with any battle Royale games we have played in the past, but they really had fun with with one. Price tag probably helped.

So many QoL improvements. Gun play is good. Skills are fun, but not game breaking. Pretty solid.

42 : Anonymous2019/02/05 17:18 ID: eft2k4j

Exactly! Cod 4 and MW2 were made 10+ years ago and I still feel like the gunplay, hit detection, and kill time get the best out of all cods. That might not all be on West and Zampella but I’ll credit them and the Respawn team haha.

I buy COD every year and I quit playing it after a month this year. Loved Black Ops 1 and 2 but man it feels good to play something like this.

Well this is fucking depressing. RIP titanfall

Everyone supporting this, you're the reason games keep getting worse. This is a blatant trend chasing cash grab, and when the player base inevitable crashes, or the motorization gets worse and worse over time, you have only yourselves to blame.

ID: efs8lji

games keep getting worse

But this is a great game that I enjoy a lot?

ID: efslh9f

Nah, Vince has said in the past he wanted to do more games in the Titanfall universe in general, this is just them doing that. It sounds like the game is pretty excellent as a BR game goes (not my thing, tried it and the movement feels slow compared to Titanfall, so I could get into it, but it's really fun to watch) and I see the main benefit for people who love Titanfall is that this will bring more interest to Titanfall titles in general, and help TF|3 (when it's made) have greater success since people will actually know what the Titanfall IP is.

I used to track played numbers in TF|2 for the hell of it, and at 7am US Central time the peak player counts on PC is already higher than what it was back in mid-December of last year during the actual peak time. Apex Legends is already helping to get more people back into TF|2 (if not into it for the first time).

[1,295 players at 12:46 PM (around peak time) in December vs 1,651 players at 7:33 AM today]

They aren't killing the Titanfall franchise, this is them saving the Titanfall franchise, it's just that it'll take a bit longer to get the next game than people hoped.
