Twitch Reveals $200K Apex Legends Challenge Events for Streamers

Twitch Reveals $200K Apex Legends Challenge Events for Streamers

"We absolutely are looking at that in the context of Apex", Wilson said in regards to cross-platform play, noting that other games in EA's lineup, particularly Federation Internationale de Football Association, could benefit from cross-play as well. You have to go back to Halloween 2008 to see a worse day for EA, when its stock value fell 17.9 per cent in one day.

Is There Potential Competition Between Battlefield 5 Firestorm and Apex Legends? We think about franchises with tremendously large communities like Federation Internationale de Football Association, and we think that they would absolutely benefit from cross-play and cross-progress, as more and more people come into these big communities.

"From the beginning, we built Apex Legends to be at its best when you are playing with friends", says a statement from Respawn. Following the successful launch of Apex Legends earlier this week, Epic upped their advertising efforts, leading many to wonder if Respawn's free-to-play battle royale title is here to take on the reigning champion, and if the Fortnite devs are anxious.

Andrew Wilson: And well, I don't have more to share on the particulars of what would come in for Titanfall.

Apex Legends swaps out Titanfall's rapid wall-traversal and giant mech fights for a battle royale experience reminiscent of Fortnite, leaving its connection to the original games rather tenuous.

Don't forget, Apex Legends is set in the Titanfall universe, so anything's possible. This seems to contrast EA's recent earnings report, which states that the studio will deliver another premium Titanfall game by the end of the year. Based on the wording, it may not be a mainline Titanfall game, like we'd expect. What our information would suggest to us is that there isn't a tremendous amount of play across devices, but that overall liquidity in any gaming community is a good and positive thing, even if it's only a few people or a small portion of the community that utilizes that.

"I think that we made the right decision to move the title in service of the quality of the game".

Note that if you do get an invite from within Steam, you'll still need to download the Origin client to download and play Apex Legends.
