Gains and Losses of Apex Legends
February 27, 2023
Welcome to another installment of video game news on our Syrus blog. This time we are going to talk about a game distributed by Electronic Arts if you want to know more, please read on.
A battle royale and hero shooter game
We are talking about Apex Legends, a free-to-play hero shooter where legendary competitors fight for glory, fame, and fortune on the fringes of the Frontier, where you can play in classic 60-person Battle Royale matches, 3v3 Arena battles and limited-time modes and acquisitions!
It was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on February 4, 2019. In July 2020, it was announced that the title would arrive at Steam later that year. On March 9, 2021, the game came to Nintendo Switch and on March 7, 2022, the game would be released in a “limited regional release” format for smartphones in selected countries, to be later released globally.
There is little time left for the arrival of what will be the first season of Apex Legends in 2023, which will be responsible for making several changes and improvements in the quality of life of the game to lay the groundwork for future additions. Like the introduction of a mode that players have been asking for since launch: Team Deathmatch.
As a result, the season will not feature certain elements that you are used to since a new legend, however, this will be compensated with what else will come with it.
To get you ready we have rounded up all the details on season 16, which is titled Revelry.
What expects in the 16 seasons?
This highly anticipated game mode will arrive on February 14 alongside Revelry and will focus on “enhancing the core experience,” said design director Evan Nikolich during a preview event.
Apex Legends will look like TDM in any other game, really: a fast-paced 6v6 mode with no downs, just deaths and fast respawns. Says game mode designer Marty Wong.
At the beginning of the match, you will get a loadout selection like the one in the control game mode: close-quarters, heavy, assault, specialist, and long range, with two weapons and a grenade in each loadout. And throughout the match you will be able to switch your Legend, loadout, and pick up some weapons throughout the map. As well as, the first team to 30 kills wins the round, winning two rounds takes the game.
On the other hand, Apex Legends decide to remove Arenas that will disappear with Season 14, as the 3v3 mode was not “hitting our goal of being a good place to practice the core combat loop of Apex,” explains Nikolich.
This mode ended up being it was a sweatier, more high-stakes mode. And a lot of players would go into it feeling like they could not make mistakes or could not really experiment, they always had to play hard. So, the creators hoping that TDM comes in and provides a place for players to die fast and feel comfortable making mistakes, hoping that gives Apex a lot more accessibility for unpracticed players.
Apex Legends Season 16 will offer Team Deathmatch at the start, then bring in Mixtape, a rotating playlist of community favorite modes. Remember, Apex Legends Season 16 Revelry kicks off on February 14.
