A new game based in the Titanfall universe is expected to be announced and released on February 4, but apparently it won’t be a sequel to the critically praised Titanfall 2 title. The battle royale-style game is called Apex Legends, and it will be free to play and feature loot crates and microtransactions, but it won’t feature any Titans.

According to a report, the new game coming from Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts (EA) on February 4 will be a battle royale title called Apex Legends. Many gamers would have been hoping for an announcement in relation to Titanfall 3, but it seems that game is still in development.

The new battle royale game will be set in the Titanfall universe and feature gameplay that will be familiar to fans of the series, but surprisingly players will not be able to utilize the Titan exoskeletons that are a main feature of the best-selling first-person shooters. Apex Legends has been developed by Respawn and will be published by EA.

It has been mentioned that the battle royale effort from Respawn and EA will also feature microtransactions and loot crates, for “cosmetic items and in-game content.” EA has a poor reputation in regard to this form of revenue, after Star Wars Battlefront II fans complained about the unfair loot box implementation in that particular title. Apex Legends will be out on February 4 and will be free to play on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
