Apex Legends

Hi people,

I was just wondering, is anyone playing this? (Couldn't find it on a forum search.) I'm thinking of downloading it onto the PS4 I share with my brothers. It's likely because of my awkward GMT/BST timezone and other people using the PS4, etc., I won't be able to play with 57thMS people much, but just wanted to flag it up as a potential game clan people might want to check out together. Fresh, 2019, F2P battle royale game; mechanics and graphics look decent imo; plus customisation options (I'm guessing that's where money might get spent).

I appreciate the slightly more serious/realistic feel to it compared to Fortnite (which has a cartoonyness about it), while still having a lot of visual appeal (for me anyway...I'm all about vibrant greens and overgrown manmade structures). Like a cross between PUBG and Fortnite while bringing something new to the field? I dunno *shrug* I'm an FPS veteran who's skills have dulled with age and lack of practise, yet I still want to have a go from time to time. Plus I'm aiming for F2P at the moment (or I would be checking out Division 2 where the peoples are at). ;)

Anywhoooo, I'll likely check it out some time this week. Trailer below. Bye for now. :D

I played it some with a couple of the folks. I am TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE, but it's the only fun I've ever really had playing a Battle Royale game. I'd be down to play sometime. You know where to find me :P

Ooooo, that's encouraging! Yeah, I don't hold much hope for me being good at a PS4 shooter. My meagre fps skills are all PC-based and I tend to stick to RPGs on consoles. :P In fact... this may be the first fps I try on console!! :O No wait, I've dipped my toes into the Rainbow Six, and CoD franchises on X360, but I was a wuss, so stuck to the solo campaigns (shutup!). So yeah, if you think you're bad, I dread to think what I'll be like in there. :laugh: What drew me to it over other battle royales is players having different abilities/specialisms, not just luck-of-the-draw with what gear you find in the map. Yay for added strategy.

I know there were a bunch of us that played on PC. We had a bunch of days where there were a full squad and extra playing all at the same time but that was back closer to launch.

Hmmm, so I shook a leg in there the other day and had some fun, but it's not quite what I'm looking for in a game at the mo. :) I may have another go at a battle royale game in the future though. I can see why people enjoy them.

If you played alone (well, with randos) then I would say yeah, not so fun. As far as BRs go Apex is the best if you have people. Otherwise nah to any of them for me.

I played mostly on PC and a little bit on Xbox. I could try on PS4 but if it's anything like on the Xbox I was way worse than on PC (which is already bad).

I did alright I guess. Focused on healing squad and not getting dead, got a few kills, but I just wanted more to be happening across such a large map (more objectives? I dunno) and collecting random gear as you go annoys me.  :P I loved the environment/aesthetics and gameplay mechanics as a whole. They did a good job there. If my aim was better and I was less of a soloer I'd like the whole gameplay experience much more. :P
