Last week, Electronic Arts and Respawn hosted a preview event in Los Angeles for its new free-to-play shooter, Apex Legends.
A few dozen games journalists from around the world played the game for some hours, with servers also populated by Respawn developers and testers. The testers did not go easy on us. Above is a sample of gameplay that shows how we drop into the game, seek out weapons, work together, and finally engage the enemy.
It’s good insight into how the map works, most especially its reliance on vertical structures and sight lines. You can also see how players communicate with one another via single-button resource and positional alerts. You’ll also get a look at a few of the weapons and specials that are used by player character Gibraltar, who is the game’s biggest tank.
Apex Legends is out now as a free-to-play game for PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One.
