APEX LEGENDS

apex-legendsApex Legends was released on February 4, 2019 by Electronic Arts. The game was developed by Respawn Entertainment. Apex Legends is a battle royale game set in the Titanfall universe.

The file size for Apex Legends varies, with a 23.1GB download on PS4 versus 12.77GB on PC.

The explosion of popularity in the genre means there are a lot of games that do last-player-standing competition pretty well, but with some wrinkles. Some games like CS:GO added new maps for a battle royale gameplay but Origin and Respawn went back to basics and put together a better idea for Apex Legends.

Everything in Apex Legends works to further teamwork: that includes a number of improvements to issues that plague the whole genre, like cleaning up inventory management and increasing accessibility, and the addition of new ideas, like squad composition elements and special character abilities.

Teams skydive onto a huge island with nothing and scramble to gather up weapons and items to use against any other teams they encounter until only one team survives. The game strongly focus on teamwork which is lacking in so many other games in the genre.

Apex streamlines the user interface that make it possible to instantly identify what you need and ignore the things you don’t. Ammo types are color-coded to the guns that use them. Attachments automatically join with guns they fit and swap to appropriate new guns when you pick them up, while things you can’t use or don’t improve your gear are brightly marked as such.

We tried the game on our Core 2 Quad Q6600 and the game complained it did not have POPCNT so it appears the developer used the wrong compiler options as the CPU does support the SSE 4 instruction set. Small wonder so many are having problems with crashing.
