  1. In case you haven’t noticed, there’s a new battle royale in town from the makers of Titanfall. Apex Legends is a new free-to-play competitor to Fortnite and PUBG and is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC (via Origin). Apex Legends is a spin-off set in the Titanfall universe, taking place 30 years after the events of Titanfall 2. Though it lacks actual Titans, the hero-focused, squad-based game pits teams of 3 against 19 other teams (making 57 players total) in a last-team standing deathmatch. Players choose from one of eight Legends. These characters sport unique abilities, such as a medic and tracker, giving the game more of an Overwatch or Rainbow Six vibe in that assembling a balanced team is key. Other twists include the Jumpmaster system which allows players to manually pinpoint their exact landing zones prior to the start of the match. Respawn Beacons act as one-use locations that revive downed teammates. Additionally, an intelligent gear system automatically attaches accessories to their appropriate weapons, saving the player time in having to manually do so themselves. The implementation of Seasons affirms Respawn’s commitment to making Apex Legends an engaging long-term experience. Season 1 kicks off in March alongside a purchasable battle pass that unlocks cosmetic items traditionally obtained through gameplay. Respawn states that future Seasons will bring new Legends, weapons, cosmetics, and more. Cross-platform play, while currently unavailable, is said to be in the works as well. As for what Apex Legends means for the development of Titanfall 3, the follow-up to the acclaimed 2016 sequel is apparently not in the works. According to a Eurogamer interview with Lead Producer Drew McCoy, Apex Legends has been the project that the studio has been quietly working on and not Titanfall 3 as many had assumed/hoped. It’s worth noting that Respawn is also developing Star War Jedi: Fallen Order, set to release this fall. Have you played Apex Legends? If so, what do you think of it? Let us know in the comments.

  3. The musician and producer deadmau5 and his team won a charity gaming tournament this past weekend giving all $20,000 to Extra Life. This isn't the first time deadmau5 has supported Extra Life. Last year, he placed the winning bid on a coveted McDonald's Szechuan sauce being sold to benefit a number of charities, one of which was Extra Life! The tournament was put together by a partnership between eSports broadcasting network OGN and Player Unknown's Battlegrounds. OGN designed the event to bring fans and influencers together for charity while also commemorating the opening of OGN's Super Arena, one of the largest eSports arenas in the United States. The stage holds the unique distinction of being the only eSports arena in the country that can accommodate battle royale style competitions. Over the weekend, deadmau5 led his team of fans into battle at the OGN Supermatch: Alpha against fan teams captained by the professional gaming team Cloud9, streaming personality Jericho, YouTube stars The Try Guys, and more. Team deadmau5 came out on top in three of the four PUBG matches to secure the tournament win. The teams performed in front of a sold out crowd of about 400 people as they duked it out on the digital battlefields. You can watch the full broadcast below. OGN also took the opportunity to launch an ongoing partnership with PUBG called the National PUBG League. The league will keep tournaments going year-round while OGN moves part of its operations from South Korea to the US. The Super Arena will play a major part in their plans for the future, allowing them to have an exclusive, professional stage from which to stream large competitive titles like Player Unknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite. “With this event, our U.S. launch is now official and we are very excited to be able to unveil our new arena and studio for fans here and around the world,” said CJ E&M America (the parent company of OGN) CEO DJ Lee. “We can’t wait to show everyone the next phase in this journey.” It's so rad to see prominent people out there using their powerful platforms to rep for Extra Life. It's even more awesome when they are able to go out there and fight for the kids in such a public-facing way that gets people wondering about how they can play games and heal kids, too. You're amazing deadmau5, thank you! Don't forget to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games! View full article

  5. Fortnite has been consistently gaining popularity in recent months. The free-to-play Battle Royale game mode has captured the attention of streamers and celebrities alike. That led to the surprise team up between rapper Drake and Twitch streamer Tyler "Ninja" Blevins. The two have streamed together on multiple occasions while racking up huge viewership numbers. In a recent stream, Ninja encouraged Drake to include references to Fortnite in his next album. Drake responded saying, "It has to happen, it's just gotta be the right way. Someone's gonna do it. Someone's gonna pull it off. I say when Epic gives me the emote, when Epic gives me the Hotline Bling emote, I'll do it." He added a bit jokingly, "Until then, I'm on strike." So, there you have it! Epic Games' lack of a Hotline Bling emote is the only thing standing between Drake and a Fortnite themed rap or album. Would a Fortnite album be something you'd listen to or is it too strange?

  7. Xbox and Microsoft seem to be throwing not one but two battle royale-style games onto their consoles in the near future. The Darwin Project, from the relatively new Scavenger Studios, aims to throw players into an ice cold ring full of equally cold enemies. Featuring cartoonish graphics, the staged demo showed off a player hunting down an unsuspecting player in the game's snowy combat arena, which is shared by six other players and A.I. wildlife. The player can scavenge for resources like wood in order to make items, like a bow or shield. Alliances may even be formed, though Scavengers Studios implies they'll only be temporary. Check out the trailer for an in-depth look. Scavengers Studios also released details on the Darwin Project's "Director Mode," which allows one player to manipulate the game for the contestants. The director can initiate manhunts by briefly revealing a player's location, restricting zones, or even calling in airstrikes. Scavengers Studios also plan to release a mode that lets stream viewers play a role in the contest. What do you make of this battle royal game? Does it feel like it can compete with the like of Battlegrounds? View full article
