On February 4, Respawn Entertainment — now owned by EA — launched a battle royale shooter called Apex Legends. There were rumors that it would be a free-to-play version of Titanfall, but it’s more along the lines of Overwatch than anything else. The most important piece of information to get out of the way is that the game seems to take place in the Titanfall universe, but it doesn’t feature mechs or any other towering contraptions. It’s a standard run-and-gun experience, where each character has various special abilities.
The patch that adds the Valentine’s Day event will also bring with it a number of fixes. Respawn shared details about the changes on Reddit. You can read about the important ones below.
