UPDATE: Apex Legends has been revealed and it's out right now on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Apex Legends is a free-to-play 60-player battle royale title loosely set in the Titanfall universe.

I blasted away in it for a couple of hours last night and I have to admit my early impressions are fantastic. It feels like the first of the second wave of battle royale titles and is probably the slickest of the bunch at this stage. Apex Legends can easily be described as Call of Duty: Blackout meets Overwatch, complete with hero characters and special abilities that can turn the tide of battle.

Respawn has obviously revealed the Apex Legends PC system requirements along with the release. It's F2P so there's little risk in you just giving it a download and seeing how it runs for yourself.

Apex Legends Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i3-6300 3.8 GHz or AMD FX-4350 4.2 GHz
  • RAM: 6 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GT 640 or Radeon HD 7730
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 22 GB Available Hard Drive Space

Apex Legends Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1400 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 290
  • DX: DirectX 11

Despite the increased player count we actually see a significant drop in the system specs compared to Titanfall 2. Apex Legends has a slightly simpler, Borderlands-esque visual style that ensures it's compatible with a wider range of PC gaming systems. 

Original Story: 04-Feb-2019 - Apex Legends is a New F2P Battle Royale Set in Titanfall Universe, Set to be Revealed Today

Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment are preparing to drop a new game set in the Titanfall universe, today. Rumours of a game called Apex Legends started spreading like wildfire over the weekend and now Respawn CEO Vince Zampella has confirmed Titanfall Apex Legends is the real deal.

“Looks like everything is unlocked now? Fun.” tweeted Zampella. “So, if you like Respawn, our games or even me, you should tune in tomorrow [today]. Our stream starts at 8am pt and we’ll tell you everything about Apex Legends. Everything.” 

Apex Legends is reported to be a free-to-play battle royale game set within the world of Titanfall. It’ll allegedly feature a 60-man player count and options for both singles, duos and trios play. It has been described as a mix between Call of Duty: Blackout and Rainbow Six Siege and will not feature the iconic Titans associated with the franchise.

As ever, Apex Legends will run on a modified version of Valve’s Source engine and it’ll be coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC, presumably through Origin.

Titanfall 2 had some great multiplayer to go with its fantastic single-player campaign so our hopes are high for this one. Respawn knows how to put together a slick-feeling shooter and while the Titans will be missed, Apex Legends definitely sounds like a game with potential, on paper at least.

Respawn has promised the full unveiling of Apex Legends later today so we’ll update you just as soon as it’s officially revealed. We’ll then know once and for sure whether it’s shadow dropping later today.
