Reports late last week suggested that Apex Legends, a new battle royale title developed by Respawn and set in the Titanfall universe, was set to be revealed during yesterday's Super Bowl LIII broadcast and released today.
The Super Bowl ad proved to be wide of the mark but Vince Zampella, CEO of Respawn, did confirm the game's existence. He promised we can learn more later today with an initial teaser shown on the Apex Legends Twitch channel at 4 pm GMT / 8 am PST, with a full reveal set to follow four hours later at 12 pm PST.
Update: As of 4.15pm GMT, the teaser has mostly been a static shot of some pretty trees interspersed with flashes of gunplay. We suspect this may be all we get until 8 pm GMT / 12pm PST.
Update 2: After showing virtually nothing, a timer is now counting down towards the 8pm GMT / 12pm PST mark as the view cycles between different static locations on the map. It seems unlikely we'll get anything substantial in the meantime. You can check out the allegedly leaked map while you wait.
You can watch both the teaser and the full reveal of Apex Legends below:
What are you hoping to see during the reveal? If the rumours are true, we can expect a 60 player battle royale which focuses on the Titanfall pilots rather than the hulking Titans from the previous games in the series, and that possible immediate release might still happen as well.
