Before you'd even unleashed your inner-battle royale hype man you were probably asking one thing about Respawn's latest title: Is Apex Legends cross-platform?

With the official reveal set for today, it won't be long before we hear more about the game. According to Kotaku's Jason Schreier, he was tipped off about the game last month, and was told that it "plays like Titanfall mixed with Overwatch and Blackout from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4".

Over the weekend, the surprise reveal of a new battle royale game called Apex Legends was spoiled by the many influencers and YouTubers that developer Respawn Entertainment invited to play the game ahead of its launch.

Other unique characteristics behind Apex Legends include how teams pick where they start on the map.

While Titanfall games are typically overshadowed by other shooters, it seems Apex Legends will receive consistent updates into the foreseeable future.

Like Fortnite, you and your squad will have to wander the battlefield looking for loot while taking care not to attract the attention of the game's other players.

If you need context for where the game sits in the Titanfall timeline, the game is set 30 years after the events of Titanfall 2 and takes place in the Outlands, where a bunch of characters are competing in a Hunger Games-esque bloodsport.

"Our goal in every game you play is that you come in with a plan but you leave with a story", Drew McCoy, lead producer of Apex Legends, said in a press release.

What are you expecting out of Apex Legends?

It's a significant turnaround from previous reports, which seemingly confirmed Titanfall 3's existence - with everything pointing towards a 2019 release. With strides elsewhere in the industry, it'd make sense for your mind to drift towards the idea of playing Apex Legends with Xbox One players on PS4 or vice-versa or, at the very least, sorting out a PC and Xbox One cross-play for Apex Legends.
