The Best PC Game Apex Legends
Apex LegendsGame Genre: Battle Royale
Publisher: California-based company, Electronic Arts (EA) has launched one of the top games for PC – Apex Legends. EA is a big name among gaming companies in America and Europe. If you look at the development of the game, it was Respawn Entertainment, which EA acquired. Respawn Entertainment is one of the biggest game developers in the US. Beside Apex Legends EA’s other games are FIFA, Need for Speed, Star Wars Battlefront II, Plants vs Zombies, and many more.
Cost: Apex Legends is free to download and play, but there are in-game purchases.
Platform: What is amazing about this game is that it was launched in February 2019 without marketing it. Nonetheless, the appeal for the game has spread like wildfire. Apex Legends has captured the gaming fraternity in a matter of months. It is one of the best games that was released in 2019 for PC gamers.
Apex Legends is set in a new world called Outlands. The ambiance is pristine in every sense. The Outlands is a beautiful place that is not touched by war or anything harmful. It is a utopia for humans. Somewhere far from the Outlands is the Frontier. It is an area in space that was ravaged by war. This place is now inhabitable forcing the last few survivors to find a new habitable place. They turn their attention to the Outlands, which is located at the edge of the Frontier. This new home attracts people from all over the Frontier. They want to make it their home. The pioneers, explorers, and outlaws are at war, but the only way to rise up from this fight is go participate in Apex Games. It is a game where Legends across the Frontier fight it out for money, fame, and name.
Apex Legends is a snappy game. There are 20 groups of three members who enter into a battle to be the last surviving team. In this game, characters are called legends and they have unique abilities. Pick one at the start of the game. You are then dropped to an island without any ammo or gear. Scavenge around and boost your reserves.
The game focuses largely on working as a team. You use ping-a communication tool that is effective for teamwork such as giving direction, locating weapons and enemies, and recommending strategies.
If you are injured or out, then another team member can revitalise you. If you die in the game, there is a banner that pops up. Your team has to collect it and take it to one of the stations that are located in unsafe and inconvenient places. It will initiate your resurrection.
Editorial Review: The developers of Apex Legends took their time to create a detailed world, where the furthest corner is intriguing and there is something to explore. The most appreciative feature is the ping system, which is characteristic to the game. It is a communication tool that does not require the player to speak at all. You can choose from a spectrum of options what you want to tell your teammates. It includes which direction you want to proceed, where is the loot, where are the enemies, and other such choices. Each legend has a line for these options, which makes it an interesting way to play the game.
There are six legends in the game, these are their abilities:
Bangalore: She has a military background making her a killing machine. She has an edge in this battle scene.
Gibraltar: When it comes to rescue operations, he is your man. He is kind but he has a wild side. He is skilled at getting you out of a sticky situation.
Crypto: He is the tech expert, who will uncover secrets and is a master at spy gadgets.
Lifeline: She has healing abilities, but she can take on the opponents with ease.
Pathfinder: He will pinpoint location and survey the land.
Bloodhound: If you want to track someone, he is your guy. His tracking abilities will blow your mind.
A game spans for about 25 minutes. So, load up on ammo and unleash the distinct guns that are a combination of powerful weapons. Your option includes semi-auto rifles, auto rifles, LMGs and SMGs, which can be upgraded. What is specific to this game is the easy selection of weapons. Unlike other battle royale games, you have to swipe through a list of guns and their add-ons (scope, extended magazine, barrel stabaliser), but in Apex Legends you are suggested the best gun for that particular situation. The aim and precision of the shot is right on and the game gets brownie points for it.
Apex Legends has only one map – King Canyon but it is detailed out. The setting is beautiful; you enter a world of pristine nature and settlements that include gushing waterfalls, dense forests, sandy terrain, commercial complexes, military areas, etc. However, new maps are in the pipeline.
The developers knew what was available in this genre and launched a distinct battle royale game. Presently, you have to team up with players to form a squad, but soon you will be able to go into battle solo.
Challenge: Upgrading gear and ammo is the key to surviving, but it is a slow process. If a player has an upgraded protective gear compared to you, it will be tough to kill him. So, take him out slyly and use the fiercest legend to attack. Use strategy and the team’s individual abilities to kill the opponent.
Also, it takes a while before you can open a loot box – a box that offers you skins and other items for your legend. For instance, you need 12,000 Legend Tokens to unlock a new character, but that is a lot of tokens. It will take you hours to reach 12,000 Legend Tokens. Hence, you are tempted to buy a loot box, which instantly gives you new features or bumped up items.
If you want bonuses, then engage in daily and weekly challenges. Every day, there are three challenges that you have to complete. They will help you get bonuses which in turn you can use to unlock or buy items.
Slide whenever you can evade opponents. It is the best movement to get around and a great position for defense.
