Here's what you need to know. Just like the first two Titanfall games, Apex Legends will run on a modified version of Valve's Source Engine, ensuring decent performance across platforms. Players will select from one of eight Legends - each with their own unique abilities and playstyles - and the last team standing wins.

Leaks over the weekend stole the thunder from Titanfall's developer, Respawn Entertainment, but there's still much to be learned about the new game.

"There are some people who think there are too many battle royale games or it's a fad, the world thinks we're making Titanfall 3 and we're not - this is what we're making".

Respawn's spin-off is called "Apex Legends" and is set to be a multiplayer, battle royale game set in the Titanfall universe for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

The comments come amid President Putin's announcement that Moscow would respond accordingly to the USA fallout of the INF Treaty. After Pompeo's announcement, Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang called the United States withdrawal "regrettable".

According to EA, Apex Legends has a few tricks up its sleeve that make it different from other battle royale games. In teams of three, the game allows players to choose their drop point using the Jumpmaster system, giving the squad control over where they start the match.

The game is now available to play through Origin on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Players can opt for characters like Lifeline, the battlefield medic who can shield teammates from harm as well as revive them, or tracker Bloodhound, who can see recent enemy movement via the map. A handful of Nessies appeared in the original game, and the tradition continued with Titanfall 2.

The game will feature a seasonal content roadmap, with new Legends and weaponry coming on a quarterly basis.

EA says Apex Legends' first season begins in March 2019 and that players can buy a Battle Pass to get exclusive cosmetic items that can also be earned through gameplay.
