I'll never understand people that bitch about a free game. Or people that bitch about "yet another BR game", nobody is forcing them to play it.
Well there are multiple reasons (obviously this doesn't encompass all free games).

  • This is seemingly replacing Titanfall 3
  • EA is the publisher so that doesn't leave me confident
  • I despise Lootboxes as a business model and it's sad to see another franchise use them
  • It's not clear how this might affect the future of the Titanfall series

I don't think anybody is complaining that we are getting a free game. What people are upset about is the effect this might have on Titanfall as a whole.

So yeah, people should give this a fair shot so they can at least make educated criticisms instead of just blind salt. I don't think it's unreasonable to be upset though.

Game is really quite good and feels really polished. Don't like most of the character designs, but everything else is top-notch.

Also it's cool how you can play any mode whilst it's still downloading, the textures just look like shit. Better than waiting around doing nothing though.

I don't play Battle Royale games but been watching Shroud and DrDisrespect play this and it looks pretty damn good and polished.

It's like they took elements of Overwatch and BR games and added stuff those games needed and removed certain annoying gameplay things or even social stuff such as lobbies, voice chat from people other than your party, etc..

I also find it hilarious the only playable white male character is literally named "Caustic" and is actually a "TOXIC" white male, I think Respawn must have a glorious sense of humor.

I mean I’m sure there’s some truth to that but I still think TF3 will happen, eventually
i hope so brother, but honestly its highly doubtful. if the game is a success TF3 wont happen as they will focus all their efforts into this and if its a failure EA will blame the IP and TF3 would still not happen.

I played a few matches today. I'm a little ambivalent about it- if you're at all familiar with BR games, everything will look pretty familiar to you. There are a few differences, you get to pick characters like in Overwatch or Rainbow 6... but personally I didn't find the game that compelling. I don't really see this dethroning fortnite. And I don't think the gunplay is as good as COD Black Out personally.

Just played for about 5h on base PS4.

This game is a blast, holy shit. The map is awesome, traversal is quick and fun, the gunplay is fenomenal, as expected. This is easily the best Battle Royale for me.

Got 2 wins, some #2 place too. I'll definitely buy something to support Respawn.

I haven't payed attention to the FPS genre since the early Halo days.

Who are the FPS people to follow if I want to see this game played well?

Outside Ninja?

Still sucks they removed the double jumps and wallrunning. It could have easily worked and made the game stand out, like titanfall multiplayer did, instead of being another cod with oh boy a slide and a grapling hook maybe.
The grappling hook is absolute garbage now. Especially without the momentum and double jump that Titanfall 2 had. It is so sad.

The characters are really Meh to me... BUT the gunplay feels so good and the game just looks so fantastic. I find it hard to hate the game. Not a fan of the class system but I guess I guess why they put it in there. It kinda is the IN thing at the moment and what not.

Really like this game......The one thing I really like that other games like this need to go with is being able to respawn your team.
there's a couple other cool additions that other games are missing imo

respawning as you mentioned, pinging things (enemies, weapons, items, etc..) and auto dropping with your party are all nice touches

Shroud is a fucking legend but I prefer watching people like TSM Viss and even DougisRaw.

Viss has a good following and averages a few thousand viewers. Doug is pretty small but he’s really good. His biggest claim to fame is he’s friends with Doc and plays with him and he had the solo kill record on console during the Blackout beta.

Yup. This feels like a tweaked up BR mode. Maybe not fresh, but fresher than what we’ve been getting.

It’s good. There’s a winner here

I could mention some of the better Titanfall you tubers, but I have no idea if they're going to get into this game or not. If some of them put out some videos soon, I'll be sure to post them.

In the meanwhile, here's one of the better Titanfall channels with some insight as to why this isn't Titanfall 3, and how the game came to be.

Its OK but the lack of wall running/parkour really kills it for me as a "Titanfall" based shooter


Its also running pretty bad compared to Blops4... With my i7/GTX 1080 I barely break 60fps with most settings on HIGH and Shadows on LOW whereas I break 100fps in Blops4

I typically hate the BR genre with Fortnite being the absolute worst POS I've ever tried. But I like Apex Legends. I think I like it a lot. I suck at it for sure but I love the gunplay and the polish of it all. Respawn are pros at this and I think this game will succeed, not only because it's free but because it's so fun to play right out of the gate. I'm playing a basic model PS4 and getting 60fps. The ping and respawn system also make this game unique to other games in the genre. I can point at basically anything and send a voiced message to my team mates with a simple press of a button. And the loot boxes and other MTX isn't too predatory either. Yeah you can buy them with real money but you earn a box with with each level up. Pretty much all of the other cosmetics can be purchased in game too or with money. So far so good Respawn. Time will tell if EA gets greedy of course but right now the game is damn good.
