    Seems like the name is Apex Legends.



    And some game details:
    • 60 players per server
    • max 3 players per team
    • no titans.
    • similar engine - modified Source engine
    • cosmetic items from lootboxes

    Titanfall still has the best infantry mechanics around, so if its a br with vertical elements, I'm in.

    Maybe they'll add Titans in a special mode later? Everyone focus on taking down the super powered giant etc. (different balance from the main games)

    Just need to insert those giant Leviathan creatures from the first game as a moving structure that you can rappel/wall-run on the side of while it travels through the level. (too cool thus never happening)

    That's weird. Why they don't even include Titan only mode?

    Could be that the project is being rushed to meet EA's fiscal year.

    ahem.

    One of the stories I read said they were working to release Titanfall 3 at the end of 2018, but decided the game already looked dated. They've restarted that project with a new engine or engine upgrades. This release is built from the original work they did on Titanfall 3.

    Oh dear.

    At the same time, let's look at the track record for Frostbite doing things it wasn't meant to do. :V

    I imagine they're bringing it in line with their Star Wars game.

    mm... thinking about that, it'd be really nifty to see some Titanfall parkour as a Force-wielding character.

    Aside from Bioware's games it seems to have worked out really well.

    But isn't that the series trademark?

    Maybe this one looked extra dated?

    I’m excited. I really enjoyed titanfall PvP. Not sure why I quit it. I guess too much destiny PvP.

    Thinking about it...
    Maybe I should have stayed with titanfall. But TF was relentless. Much harder for me to do well.

    Ah k - the Kotaku story - https://kotaku.com/a-free-to-play-titanfall-battle-royale-game-will-be-out-1832291956

    It just seems bizarre to poop this one out before the end of the fiscal year as a way to salvage the work on it while they also have Firestorm for BF5 coming out in March. Market-wise, sure, there's no overlap with Anthem, but in light of BF5 serving that market when they've got this game along with Free-to-Play and no stigma of the BF5 controversies, maybe it'd have been better to forget about Firestorm and pour more resources into Apex (crazy-talk, yes :p); give BF5 owners some bonuses in Apex. :confused:
