'Apex Legends' Escape Update Will Introduce New Legend, Game Changes - Trailer

by Rainier on Oct. 18, 2021 @ 11:31 a.m. PDT

Set in the Titanfall universe, Apex Legends is a free to play battle royale game with a cast of unique characters, squad-based gameplay, innovative mechanics and more.

Apex Legends delivers a squad-based battle royale experience with a uniquely Respawn flavor. Players will select from one of eight Legends - each with their own unique abilities and playstyles - and the last team standing wins. Combatants can choose from unique characters like Bloodhound, the tracker who can see recent enemy activity on the map, or Lifeline, a battlefield medic who can shield teammates and bring them back from the brink of death. Balanced squads and teamwork are critical, as each Legend is easy to pick up and learn, but challenging to master.

Apex Legends showcases several new genre-leading innovations, starting before players even start the match. Once players are ready to begin, they’ll choose their drop point with the Jumpmaster system, giving each squad full control over exactly where they drop in. Is it smarter to head straight for the most valuable loot and risk early conflict with other teams, or make for one of the outlying areas to plot an attack and let other squads pick each other off?

EA and Respawn Entertainment announced Apex Legends: Escape, the latest evolution of the hero shooter set to arrive to players worldwide on November 2.

Apex Legends: Escape will introduce a variety of new game changing updates that will shake up the competition of the Apex Games.

Legends beware, a storm is brewing. 

The next major update to Apex Legends will introduce a familiar face as the game’s newest Legend: Ash. More than just the overseer of Arenas, and now, fully rebuilt, Ash is a simulacrum made from the woman who once was Dr. Ashleigh Reid. A trace of Leigh still remains within Ash, igniting its own connections to another Doctor in the Arena.

Check out the new trailer and learn more about this master of psychological and physical combat in the Apex Legends: Escape - Stories from the Outlands – Ashes to Ash.

More news on Apex Legends: Escape will be revealed in the coming days before the update’s official launch on November 2, 2021.

The innovations don’t stop there as Apex Legends also delivers Respawn Beacons, one-time use locations where defeated teammates can be revived, a contextual Ping communication system that allows players to call out enemies, weapons, locations and more with the push of a button, and an intelligent inventory system which automatically attaches gear and equipment to the appropriate weapons once players pick them up. All together it creates a battle royale experience unlike any other, complete with Respawn’s commitment to top-notch quality and fun.

Apex Legends is now available on Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
