Apex Legends PS4 PlayStation 4

Save for some pesky rumours over the weekend, Respawn's Apex Legends came out of absolutely nowhere, and is already making a splash in the battle royale scene. This free-to-play FPS from the Titanfall developer was both announced and released yesterday, and it's made a promising start, having amassed one million unique players in less than eight hours.

It's an impressive statistic that bodes well for the game. Despite some dashed hopes of a Titanfall 3, there seems to be lots of positive buzz surrounding this surprise release. Have you played Apex Legends yet? What are your thoughts on Respawn's latest? Fire away in the comments below.
