Since Apex Legends released many rumours and facts have been floating around the internet. Some from data miners that have got into the files and some by just word of mouth. Below are some of the current rumours and facts.
Fact – Respawn Entertainment have banned over 16,000 cheaters in Apex Legends. This is, in fact, true, a Respawn Entertainment Community Manager took to the subreddit and announced that 16,000 cheaters have already been banned. The Redditors name displays as Jayfresh-Respawn and this is what he had to say about reporting the cheaters. “Even if you don’t get proof, get their ID and flag it and we can investigate the account. We have heard your feedback about a report feature in the game. I’ll just say that’s a very good idea :)”. As of right now, there isn’t a report feature in Apex Legends but the team are working on it.
Rumour – Apex Legends will receive solo and duo game modes. EA and Respawn Entertainment have so far announced nothing on this subject. At the moment all that exists on the internet is this piece discovered by a data miner so take it with a pinch of salt till EA or Respawn Entertainment announce something.
Fact – Apex Legends hit 10 million players in just 72 hours. It’s true, Respawn Entertainment had announced that the over popular Apex Legends had, in fact, reached those numbers and at the moment it just keeps getting bigger.
Rumour – Deathmatch and Survival modes coming? For the past couple of days, there has been talking about a new deathmatch and survival mode with possible hover-tanks. Again take this with a pinch of salt but data miners have found files within Apex Legends that contain little hints but there has been no official announcement. Some gamers have been stating that perhaps they want to make it the new Titanfall by adding something for everyone, others excited about what the future holds for the game. Below is an image from the data miners.
Fact – This may not be fully Apex Legends related but Titanfall 2’s player base has doubled since the release. Respawn Entertainment and EA have announced that the player-base has since doubled in the truly epic Titanfall 2. Titanfall 2 when it released was sadly very underrated, mostly due to the release date that fell in between Call of Duty and Battlefield. Titanfall 2 has to be one of the greatest shooters of all time and I’m so happy that more players are returning to it. I hope that Respawn Entertainment to incorporate more of Titanfall into the Apex Legends game.
My Opinion – Who knows what the future holds for Apex Legends? I know that I was fed up of the Battle Royale genre until Respawn Entertainment released this absolute gem of a game. The movement, the gunplay, everything about it is just so much fun. I do hope Apex Legends dominates the top spot as I truly believe that they are very passionate developers and a lot of love went into the title. All we can really go on for Apex Legends future is that more weapons, new legends and much more will come to the game but will it hold top spot?
