Forums - Gaming Discussion - "Apex Legends", F2P Titanfall BR game set to stealth launch Monday *Update: Out Now*

Tagged games:

Why is this thread turning to talk about the Switch? or a conversation about EA from WiiU Era Nintendo, is that meant to be funny or just derailing? I can't even tell anymore.

on topic though, another Battle Royale title, I guess we're going to be seeing these pop up more and more since they require less work in general than full blown titles as most of the games seem to work around 1 or very few maps with limited class's or just weapons you find being the only differences to gameplay each round. Low investment high potential reward, shareholders dream.

as long as they are fun to play. Personally I zero interest in PUBG, and I dislike playing Fortnite (or what I played of it). CoD was fun, though I don't want to pay for what is essentially a single map (unless there are more?) or game type like that. So, if this plays well, and is F2P without being P2W, I think it could be alright.

but sure, seems like easy work (so to speak)

can only speak from my exp with fortnite but I think that game is pretty much 100% not p2w everything that you go to your wallet for is cosmetic and has no impact on the game.

I've played PubG only a little however, played a fair amount of Blackout, never played Fortnite. Each have their strengths and appeal but in the end, like any genre the fad will end and people will stop trying to replicate to make money. Fortnite already won, it's like the whole CoD situation in late 2000s early 2010s, companies just making a war shooter to cash in not realising that CoD had taken the market already. If a game like this can get even 1% of Fortnite's player base it would be a success.

... however, it might appeal to those that want to play a less kid friendly BR but don't want to pay for CoD or PubG.



Hmm, pie.

Poor Respawn, there's no way this is going to end well.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Titanfall 2 came out in 2016 (didn't realise it was that long ago) bought by EA in 2017 then in that time made a BR game, when the BR fad only really started with PubG in mid 2017.

They are a talented developer and should be making a big epic game, not some cash in BR game for EA. But that's EA for you. Watch them slowly shut down Respawn then Bioware. :P



Hmm, pie.

What comes to mind with me in battle royal games is looking back at the emergence and popularity of WoW and then the following release of the tons and tons of "WoW Killers" all of which ended up dying a death trying to reproduce a game which already existed but doing it better or more edgy to try to pull the audience away from the already established title.

Much like WoW I think the title which will be the "Fortnite killer" will be Fortnite itself doing something to upset the fanbase or the parents of them

Indeed, well put. Funny that Fortnite's money making side is just an after thought on it's main game anyway in response to PubG's success. Of course being made free to play and whatever happened in January 2018 made it really take off. I still don't understand what happened, thing was F2P for months then suddenly everyone and their mum were subscribing to Ninja.

Not sure what they'd actually do at this stage to mess it up, Epic can mess themselves up if they don't support their market place they are doing correctly (signing up games as exclusive is a weird way of doing it) but for Fortnite, all the main gameplay is pretty much the same, they just release new skins and make money.

Indeed, the main appeal for kids and teens now is that everyone is playing it, peer pressure at that age bracket is incredible so you don't wanna be the kid who isn't playing it.

For parents I see it like this....v bucks are cheaper than babysitters. That's the bottom line to how epic are making their money, skins and season pass = quiet time.
