Released about a week ago, "Apex Legends" is similar to "Fortnite" in that it is a free, online multiplayer video game in which players go head-to-head in a battle royale style (think last man standing).
ApexLegends has burst into the Battle Royale scene with a huge splash, dominating the market and blowing almost every other game out of the water. It will also be interesting to see whether Respawn's upcoming Star Wars game will be as impressive in the single-player genre as is APEX Legends for the battle royale genre.

Mostly quality-of-life UI tweaks paired with smooth, accessible but competitive gameplay, are the kickers that make Apex Legends so attractive. Furthermore, the group drop-in system gives teams a more efficient way to land in close proximity to each other; no fall damage is like a gift from the gaming gods; and respawning downed teammates gives players a second chance to get back in to the fight. And if that happens, let's just hope it is not limited to certain devices at launch as was the case with Epic Games' smash hit, Fortnite.
